Product Description

Product Description

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of its landmark progressive rock album The Power & The Glory, the members of Gentle Giant have worked together again to release an expansive version of the iconic musical work, joining forces with producer and Porcupine Tree mastermind Steven Wilson to present superb remix/remastered versions plus instrumental versions and bonus tracks. 'I am very grateful that the music we produced still has some meaning for fans of our music 40 years after we composed and recorded it,' says Derek Shulman, singer and instrumentalist with the band from its inception until the end. Fans of the iconic British band are already excited to hear the new mix of the legendary album, with Wilson presenting the recording with a sharper, brighter sound. Says brother Ray Shulman: 'I like the way he pays respect to the past but, using today's technology, probably gets closer to the intended result. His 5.1 mix really shows off some of the more intricate arrangements.' Adds guitarist Gary Green: 'He elected to give the instruments their own space, and consequently it sounds nice and airy.' It was Ray, who has worked for the last 30 years in video production, who came up with the stunning visual collection to accompany the songs on the record. The unique video images make are intended to be viewed while the 5.1 surround sound mix is playing. Says Kerry Minnear, who played keyboards and other instruments with the band: 'The visuals build and climaxes; solos and sadness are all enhanced in a really thoughtful way. I'm grateful for the time he's put in to create things and then get them timed right so that the audio and the visual impact together.' Written by the band as a 'concept album of sorts,' the 1974 release (originally issued on Capitol/EMI) shows the impact of when individuals gain power and how that power, ultimately, corrupts them. The expanded version of The Power And The Glory has been designed to give the Gentle Giant fan a whole new listening and viewing experience for the music that has become so near and dear to their hearts. 'It is great to see the reissue,' says drummer John Weathers. 'As far as I am personally concerned it was one of the best Giant albums. The subject matter and the fact that it had a definite thread running all the way through it gave us something cohesive to work with in that it tells a story albeit a sad but very recognizable one.'

Review

It says much for the way in which progressive music has embraced the 21st century that an album such as this has actually been given an extra dimension through the arrival of the 5.1 surround sound mix. While this 1974 conceptual piece always impressed on vinyl, what Steven Wilson - who remixed this anniversary edition - has done is open up new horizons through his enlightened and quite brilliant reimagining of the music. Because, as a fan of the band, Wilson has brought his own imagination to bear in the lovingly creative work here and, in the process, leaves everyone in no doubt that this is an astounding work of art. --Malcolm Dome, Prog Magazine, September 2014

This is a faultless album. I have had it on vinyl and CD since it came out. GG were an exceptional band, there has never been anything quite like it. I can clearly remember not quite getting it when I first heard it but my goodness how it rewards repeated listens. I cannot recommend it enough to anyone with a passing interest in 'prog'. Most progressive bands found their niche and stuck with it Gentle Giant were always inventive and pushing the boundaries.
This album is a good place to start with GG the songs are great, lyrics intelligent and the performances are outstanding. Wonderful band, if only there was something comparable out there now.

Superb version of this classic album - the remixing is superaltive and on the 5.1 mix brings out whole swathes of textures and subtle nuances that were merely hinted at before. An all round excellent package

I remember buying this album in Boots, Regent Street, a number of years ago as a bolshy teenager being dragged around London by my mother. Then, a huge fan of Gentle Giant, and now still, over forty five years later, with all of their long players still on the shelf, time has not diminished this masterpiece by the band. The Steven Wilson mix is quite simply, gorgeous, and I am so pleased it will never wear out......unlike yours truly. I only wish the remainder of GG's back catalogue were given the same treatment. One can only hope. The stand out track for me has always been "So Sincere", now stunning in it's new soundscape. Who would have thought that the purchase of their very first album on Vertigo from the rack of another London record shop (HMV Oxford Street if I remember correctly) would have such a profound influence on my musical life.

Wow, saw Gentle Giant play this live n Brum in the 1970s, brill that it has been done in Hi Res audio and 5.1 surround, like it was when I heard them live, very new then to surround you with speakers, top sound from the remaster from the studio tapes. I was in heaven listening to it

The music, like all of GG's output, remains superbly adventurous and indeed timeless. This package is my fourth eversince I bought the original vinyl. This remix is clear, and pleasant to listen to. I do not have a decent 5.1 rig, nor do I wish to. The stereo-mix is great (I do have a rather decent stereo rig), but so is the original vinyl which I have treasured and played for some 40 years. But then again, I am a collector of Gentle Giant and I'm ever so excited that their music is still in demand, a confirmation that the musical decisions I made so long ago are still valid. Lots of music, once admired, has lost much of its charm, Gentle Giant's legacy remains utterly important and never seizes to thrill me.

I've been a GG fan since I was 11 in 1971 and enjoyed every album. Power was a particular favourite and seeing So Sincere etc done live in 1976 (twice) was a teenage highlight. These recordings have been excellently created by SW who is the modern day guru of prog continuation and am obvious genius where digital sound is concerned. The stand out part of this album for me are the instrumental versions of all the tracks they're a revelation ! The musicianship stands out even more with no vocals to mask it, not that the vocals are bad or anything. If you want to hear how GG would probably have wanted their music to sound then buy this ! The accompanying videos/ word sequences on the blu ray whilst not exactly Hollywood quality do enhance the tracks and beats looking at the CD sleeve to read words, a nice touch. Great album,well revamped, by a great mixer of some of the best prig ever.

Another master piece, albeit a little more difficult to get into at first than some of their other albums, but still right up there with the best from this incredible band. The single release of "The Power and the Glory" tacked on to the end of the album is interesting but not essential, but the album itself is another brilliant piece of work from this outstanding band.

Enough reviews on how good an album this is. For me this is the best 5.1 production I have heard, and I have plenty. It makes me wonder why this sort of production cannot happen on all releases.
