GENTLE GIANT to Release Their First 4 Albums on Vinyl on April 3rd, 2020

Gentle Giant in 1974

Gentle Giant is happy to announce the release of the first four albums on vinyl April 3rd.

After the positive response to the box set Unburied Treasure many fans asked whether the vinyl albums would ever be available. The band has responded and decided to make these albums officially available for the first time in decades.

The band’s first album Gentle Giant was first released in October 1970. Produced by Tony Visconti it marks the 50th Anniversary of the recording and live appearances of the band. Tony Visconti produced the follow up album Acquiring The Taste in 1971.

The band oversaw the production of the third album Three Friends in 1972 and was the first official release in North America. Strangely the N.A. version featured the artwork from the U.K. Gentle Giant album. This album was followed up with their milestone album Octopus in 1972. Once again the North American artwork was different to the Roger Dean U.K. version and featured a dye cut Octopus in a jar.

Released on the Alucard label, the albums will be manufactured in 180 gram vinyl with the original gatefold artwork from the U.K.

The band hopes that their friends, followers and fans will enjoy these albums in their original form 50 years later!
