Returning to Gentle Giant’s fourth album after any kind of lengthy absence, it’s astonishing just how little Octopus has dated. Often written off at the time as a pale reflection of the truly gargantuan steps being taken by the likes of Jethro Tull and Barclay James Harvest, the band’s closest relatives in the tangled skein of period prog, Gentle Giant often seemed more notable for its album art than its music.Read More

Blu-ray plus bonus CD. Following the highly successful releases of the Steven Wilson’s remixes of The Power And The Glory and Octopus, Steven has now remixed a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from the band’s first three albums (Giant, Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo. Only a few songs from each of the band’s first three albums are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost, and it is these nine tracks – plus the previously unreleased pre-debut song ‘Freedom’s Child’ – that have been remixed by Steven Wilson for this very special release.

Formed at the dawn of the progressive rock era in 1969, Gentle Giant seemed poised for a time in the mid-’70s to break out of its cult-band status, but somehow never made the jump. Somewhat closer in spirit to Yes and King Crimson than to Emerson, Lake & Palmer or the Nice, their unique sound melded hard rock and classical music, with an almost medieval approach to singing.Read More
