Gentle Giant

Madfish proudly present the ultimate box set of Gentle Giant music. Highly regarded in the prog-rock world for the 12 albums they released between 1970 and 1980, this comprehensive set sees the band’s catalogue augmented by 15 new concert albums: seven never previously released, seven never previously officially released and one never previously released on CD. The 30-disc total also includes two posthumous live/outtake albums and a Blu-ray bonus disc. Also included are books, posters, replica promotional items and much more.

Three Piece Suite is a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from Gentle Giant’s first three albums (Giant, Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo. There are nine tracks from the albums, plus a pre-debut song, remixed by Steven Wilson. The choices were determined by the limited availability of multi-track master tapes from the era. Only a few songs from each album are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost.

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.

On November 3rd 2009 Gentle Giant will be digitally releasing seven of their best-known albums and tracks in digital form for the very first time via their own Alucard label through EMI Music's Label Services unit.
