Gentle Giant is delighted to present its first "official" live recording since 1976's “Playing the Fool Live."

Titled “Gentle Giant Live at the Bicentennial,” the recording was taken from a concert on the eve of the United States' 200th Birthday--July 3rd 1976 at the Calderone Theater, Hempstead, Long Island, which was broadcast on radio station, WLIR.

There are no overdubs or other enhancements on this truly live recording. It features Gentle Giant unedited, uninhibited and unrepentant.

The concert features the best-remembered music from past recordings as well as rare songs from the album “Interview” which the band was supporting at that time.

“Gentle Giant Live At The Bicentennial” 1976 is a 2-CD set release available everywhere from November 18th onwards on Alucard Music, distributed in North America by Caroline.

Enjoy Gentle Giant Live at the Bicentennial!
