Gentle Giant - Free Hand Free Hand
Pop New - LP ST 11428 Capitol
Factory Sealed 1975 Original, Clean COH. “Perhaps Gentle Giant's Most Realized Effort. After The Excellent In A Glass House, The Group Further Developed Its Renaissance-Medieval Approach, Producing One Of The Most Creative And Complex Recordings In Progressive Rock History. Their Vocal Approach To The Four-Part Fugue "On Reflection" Was Revolutionary For Its Time And Is Looked Upon As One Of The Genre's Defining Moments. Despite The Complexity Of The Arrangements, The Music Never Sounds Academic And In Fact Is Very Accessible Thanks To Several Melodic Hooks. The Combination Of Superb Musicianship, Dry Wit, And Creative Compositions Make This An Essential And Historical Recording.” Robert Taylor, AMG.... more details
 
Gentle Giant - In A Glass House In A Glass House
Prog Used - LP WWA 002 WWA
Beautiful Near Mint And Hard To Find 1973 English Die Cut, See Through, 3-D Gimmick Cover Original. This Title Almost Always Has Damage Around The Plastic Window, This One Does Not. The Glossy LP Appears Unplayed. “Gentle Giant Was Reduced To A Quintet On In A Glass House With The Departure Of Elder Brother Phil Shulman, But Its Sound Is Unchanged, And The Group May Actually Be Tighter Without The Presence Of His Saxophones. The Time Signatures Are Still Really Strange, And The Tempo Changes Are Sometimes Jarring, As Is The Wide Range Of Dynamics, But This Is Also One Of The Group's Most Pleasing Records -- They Rock Out In Various Places, And Elsewhere Perform All Kinds Of Little Experiments With Percussion Instruments ("An Inmate's Lullaby"), Or Create A Strange, Otherworldly Sort Of Modern Medieval-Style Music ("Way Of Life"). None Of It Except Possibly "A Reunion" Is Light Listening, But The Challenge Does Yield Some Rewarding Sounds.” Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.... more details

Gentle Giant - Acquiring The Taste Acquiring The Taste
Pop New - LP VEL 1005 Vertigo
Sealed Gatefold Original. Pristine Copy. “The Band's Second Album Is A Major Advance On Its First, Featuring Superior Singing, Playing, And Songwriting, As Well As A More Unified Sound, Without Sacrificing The Element Of Surprise In The First Record. Many Of The Melodies And Even The Riffs Here (Check Out Gary Green's First Guitar Flourish On "Pantagruel's Nativity") Have A Pretty High Haunt Count, And All Of The Musicianship Displays An Elegance Seldom Heard Even In Progressive Circles — But The Record Also, Amazingly Enough, Rocks Really Hard As Well. Elements Of Hard Rock And Gregorian Chants Mix Freely And, Amazingly Enough, Well Throughout This Album.” Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.... more details

Gentle Giant - Civilian Civilian
Prog Used - LP JC 36341 Columbia
1980 White Label Promo With Custom Inner Sleeve. Appears Unplayed. “Taking A Not So Successful Pop Detour With 1978's Giant For A Day, Gentle Giant Was Quite Unsure Where To Turn With Their Follow-Up. Lead Singer Turned Manager Derek Shulman Hoped That A Change Of Environment Would Help Them Tap The American Market, So He Moved The Band To Los Angeles To Rehearse And Record The New Album. Whereas Bassist Ray Shulman Had Dominated The Straightforward Writing Of The Previous Album, Keyboardist Kerry Minnear Was Given The Reins Here. The Result Was A Fusion That Actually Worked: Minnear's Busy Notation, New Wave Sounds, And Driving Tempos. At The End Of The '70s, Many Of Gentle Giant's Progressive Rock Contemporaries Were Looking For New Directions That Would Sell. With Its Darker Outlook And Hard-Hitting Sound (It Is The Only Gentle Giant Album Without Acoustic Guitar), Civilian Was Definitely A Turn For The Better. But Unlike Genesis, Gentle Giant Never Made It Over The Hump; It Was Announced That The Tour That Followed Would Be Their Last, And They Disbanded.” Patrick Little, AMG.... more details
 
Gentle Giant - In'terview In'terview
Prog New - LP ST 11532 Capitol
Sealed 1976 Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. “Generally Considered To Be The Last Must-Have Recording From These Progressive Rock Giants. Recorded At A Frenetic Pace, The Band Had The Impossible Task Of Topping Their Classic, Free Hand. While They Didn't Surpass The Success Of Previous Efforts, They Did Continue To Propel Their Unique Brand Of Complex Music Into Surprising New Directions. Interview Is Actually A Concept Album Centering On A Fictitious Interview Based Upon The Music Business. There Are The Typical Complex Harmonies And Intricate Musical Passages, But The Real Progress Is In The Group's Expanded Sound, Thanks In Large Part To Kerry Minnear's Stellar Keyboard Innovations. Although The Songs Are Not As Memorable As Those On Free Hand, There Isn't A Weak One In The Bunch, With The Reggae-Styled "Give It Back" Being A Standout. Unfortunately Progressive Rock Was Nearing Its Initial Run As A Popular Form Of Music, Forcing Most Prog Bands To Either Adapt To The Changing Times Or Simply Fade Away. Unfortunately, Gentle Giant Tried Their Hand At Pop For A Short And Embarrassing Time Before Disbanding. Gentle Giant's Legacy Began With Their Eponymously Titled Debut And Ended With This One.” Robert Taylor, AMG.... more details
