Under Construction Gentle Giant CD

 

Covering a decade's worth of studio outtakes, insights and previously unreleased material, Under Construction is an exciting glimpse into the intimate workings of Gentle Giant.
 
Offering candid conversations between various band members (while in the studio), and sparkling performances, including four tracks which predate the first GG album, and several live gems, this double CD is an essential addition to any Gentle Giant completist's collection. 
 
Painstakingly amassed and edited by Dan Bornemark and Dan Barrett, and mastered by Ray Shulman.
