Third Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl LP!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of their debut album, the prog rock icons are releasing their first four albums as special vinyl editions. Their third album was originally released in April 1972, and was produced by the band itself. The concept album was more rock-orientated than the two predecessors, was lauded by fans and critics alike, and gave the band their first US chart placing.

High end 180g black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with the original European artwork including all lyrics!

Gentle Giant's third album was another advance, this time in the direction of a harder rock sound - everything sounds turned up here, especially the guitars, the bass, and the electronic keyboards. Three Friends hardly sacrificed any of the group's progressive intentions, however, and there are some softer moments here, such as the playful, sprightly first half of 'Schooldays'; the harmonies and arrangements still had a distinctly medieval feel, and the melodies, though a little harder to discern here (which made them even more appealing when they did become obvious), were quite engaging.
