5.1 & 2.0 Steven Wilson Mix On Blu-Ray Disc Plus CD!
Selection Of Songs From First 3 Albums!


Blu-Ray Disc Plays on Blu-Ray Players ONLY!


Following the highly successful releases of the Steven Wilson remixes of 'The Power And The Glory' and 'Octopus', Steven has now remixed a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from the band's first three albums (Giant, Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo. Only a few songs from each of the band's first three albums are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost, and it is these nine tracks - plus the previously unreleased pre-debut song 'Freedom's Child' - that have been remixed by Steven Wilson for this very special release.

'Three Piece Suite' includes the songs 'Giant', 'Nothing At All' and 'Why Not' from the first album 'Giant'; 'Pantagruel's Nativity', 'The House, The Street, The Room' from the second album 'Acquiring The Taste'; and 'Schooldays', 'Peel the Paint', 'Mr. Class And Quality' and 'Three Friends' from the album 'Three Friends'. The previously commercially unreleased song 'Freedom's Child' is from the first recording sessions with legendary producer Tony Visconti. The liner notes contain an essay by noted journalist Anil Prasad, in which Gentle Giant's members reflect upon the writing and recording sessions. Furthermore, Steven Wilson and Tony Visconti share their observations about the early days of this unique collection of timeless music from one of progressive rock's most influential bands.

Tony Visconti: "I was a very optimistic young man in 1970... I thought music like theirs would save the world from mediocrity. I couldn't wait to sink my teeth in it."

Steven Wilson: "There was never a question of trying to outdo the original mixes, but offer different perspectives on them."

This Blu-Ray + CD Digipak contains the new Steven Wilson mixes both in 96/24 PCM and in DTS 5.1 Surround Sound Master Audio. The Blu-ray also includes animated videos for the Steven Wilson mixes, instrumental mixes of all tracks, as well as flat transfers of all three complete albums in their original mixes.
