Gentle Giant 4lp bundle vinyl

A bundle of the first four Gentle Giant LPs, Gentle Giant (1970), Acquiring The Taste (1971), Three Friends (1972) and Octopus (1972).

--------------

Acquiring The TasteGentle Giant's second album from 1971, featured a winning combination of complex compositions, haunting melodies and inventive production (courtesy of Tony Visconti). 
 
---------------
 
Produced by the band, Three FriendsGentle Giant's third album from 1972 was an ambitious concept release that contained several of their greatest compositions (including the beguiling Schooldays).
 
--------------
 
Octopus, from 1972, was one of Gentle Giant's most accomplished and accessible releases blending the band's abundant imagination with a collection of strong melodies and focused performances. 
 
--------------
 
Less complex than what followed, Gentle Giant's 1970 debut contained much-loved pieces such as Funny Ways and Alucard that served notice of a unique talent that would soon be more fully realised.
