Octopus album for sale Product Description

Octopus album for sale by Gentle Giant was released Sep 27, 2011 on the Dragonshead label. Along with THREE FRIENDS, OCTOPUS is a fine example of Gentle Giant 's early-1970s heyday, which featured the oft-underrated British progressive-rock ensemble deftly balancing complex arrangements with catchy melodies and intriguing multi-part vocal harmonies. While the frenetic instrumental "The Boys in the Band" showcases the group's tight-knit musicianship, "Knots" finds the Schulman brothers (Derek, Phil, and Ray) and company venturing into Queen-like a cappella moments, albeit with an even quirkier approach. Octopus CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs.   ...See Full Description

Refreshed sound of a masterpiece
If you look aroun for a next audiophile treatment of G. Giant Octopus you've found it ! Georgeous sound regarding voices and instruments with a little bad news for drums , probably dued to a single stereo recording in original master.

70's Progressive at its best
This album reminds me of the very best of Yes: Original, unique and technically superb. The strong classical influence artfully executed in rock music is something rare and wonderful to find.

All hail to the power of the mini-LP!!
This mini-LP format is great whether or not you had the original UK version of this LP. An exact mini-replica down to the inner sleeve and label.

Eight Opuses
Gentle Giant is an acquired taste and "Octopus" ranks as their best work. The progressive rock style contained there-in can be best be described as medieval classical, including a hard rock salute to Albert Camus, a complex a-capella piece, a Zappa-esque instrumental and even a gentle, though unorthodox, ballad.
