You is the fifth studio album by the progressive rock band Gong, released by Virgin Records in October 1974. It is the last album by Daevid Allen's Gong until 1992's Shapeshifter. Recorded at Virgin's Manor Studios in Oxfordshire, England, side 1 was mixed at Pye Studios, Marble Arch, London, while side 2 was mixed at The Manor. It was produced by Simon Heyworth and Gong "under the universal influence of . the Compagnie d'Opera Invisible de Thibet", and also engineered by Heyworth.

Gong became pioneers of a new brand of ck/trip-rock - with a conceptual ethos involving aliens and alternative realities. Without Daevid the band continued with Steve Hillage as leader for a short while, and then in various incarnations as the more jazz-rock styled Pierre Moerlen's Gong. There have been many other versions of Gong over the years, and many reformations since 1990.

The Universe Also Collapses. Burning for the Night. Rejoice! I'm Dead! Gong. Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy. High Above the Subterranea Club 2000. Camembert Electrique.

Listen free to Gong – You (Thoughts for Naught, A . You is the fifth studio album by the progressive rock band Gong: released by Virgin Records in October 1974Recorded at Virgin's Manor Studios in Oxfordshire, Englandside 1 was mixed at Pye Studios, Marble Arch, Londonside 2 was mixed at The Manor You is the third of the "Radio Gnome Invisible" trilogy of albums, following Flying Teapot and Angel's Egg. The trilogy forms a central part of the Gong mythology.

The next great GONG album is the first solo album by Hillage, FISH RISING, since most of the GONG gang play on i. For those who have NO idea what the GONG sound is, this is a great place to start. If you are more inclined to enjoy a more tightly constructed album, with narrative lyrics, etc, then you might enjoy "CAMBERT ELECTRIQUE" as a first purchase, or "FLYING TEAPOT". and I love what I've heard so far, currently digesting Angel's Egg and You (parts II & III of their Radio Gnome Trilogy).
