Gentle Giant – Giant on the Box 2004
Aug. 24, 2004 UK 107 Min. N/A
Giant on the Box features two longish television performances. First up is a ’74 German broadcast that finds them on tour in support of what was ultimately to become their biggest-selling record, The Power and the Glory. During the 50-minute set, comprised of material from that album as well as a tune from their cult hit (mind you, at over 150,000 units sold at the time – and as a British import, no less – it may be more than a cult record after all) In a Glass House , a medley of tunes from Octopus and a dip back to their first, self-titled, album for an extended version of “Funny Ways,” Gentle Giant demonstrate why they were such a compelling band, especially in concert.
