GIANT! I always know I'll be glad I stayed tuned, DJ NICK!
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:03am V Pricelessi:

Giant indeed!
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:04am Eric the Half a Bee:

OMG! Portsmouth Sinfonia, Gentle Giant!!! Great (in the former's case, hilariously bad) Brit groups from back in the day!
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:06am Minnesota Jeff:

There is a large sea of Prog I have never investigated, and Gentle Giant occupies a large portion of it I feel.
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:08am V Pricelessi:

Strangest double bill I ever saw. Dr. Feelgood in support of Gentle Giant.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:08am mariano:

Wow, amazing. At first I thought it was someone karaokeing to Peter Gabriel or early Genesis!
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:12am Tome:

if you like say "selling england by the pound' , "foxtrot", "fragile" , "close to the edge',,, you'll like ie... "Octopus" and "three friends" Gentle Giant is on the same par I always thought anyway,, being a former audio "snob" and prog rock fan,, ^^^ Nice Name !!
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:14am V Priceless:

"Free Hand" not too shabby either, IMO.
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:15am P-90:

@Free Hand: maybe one of the all-time Top Ten Essential Prog Albums
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:31am tom:

like the title barrely breaking even sort of undercuts the good timey vibe
  Fri. 2/28/14 12:39am Nick Name:

Hello all , thanks for joining , not my regular 30 min mixes / chat and so on…Marathon time !!!
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 12:41am Andrew Waterloo:

Somewhere I have a CD full of Gentle Giant bootlegs on Mp3.
  Fri. 2/28/14 1:37am jade:

What is this song playing right now? (Played after Only a Shadow)
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 1:37am Brian in UK:

Quick hello before cutting out for WORK.
  Fri. 2/28/14 1:39am Nick Name:

Hey Brain - thx for the pledge!!!
  Fri. 2/28/14 1:42am Prashanth:

oh, man! 1982 was the year I crash landed on this planet coz we heard this cool music on our planet. There was but one problem: I landed in India...came across a totally different kind of music, while everything else was either censored or just not available. Glad I am hearing it all now on WoofMoo...
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 1:51am Andrew Waterloo:

wow.. I think this may be a version of Deadlines I've never heard before.
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 1:54am Andrew Waterloo:

ah.. the 400 Blows Mix.. I guess it's been awhile :)

  Fri. 2/28/14 2:30am Nick Name:

@ausmanx : one of my nyman favorites…..
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 2:33am ausmanx:

yeah, N, everything through the 70s and 80s is pretty great. i'm on Peter Greenaway's side in that little spat!
Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 2:36am ausmanx:

Jah Wobble's Molam record is wonderful too!
