Gentle Giant to Release Second Ever Official Live CD

Gentle Giant is delighted to present its first ‘official’ live recording since 1976 Playing the Fool Live. Titled Gentle Giant Live at the Bicentennial, the recording was taken from a concert on July 3rd 1976 at the Calderone Theater, Hempstead, Long Island, which was broadcast for local radio station WLIR.

This concert has been previously released as a bootleg, but incomplete and with lower quality. There are no overdubs or other enhancements on this very live recording. It features Gen
tle Giant unedited, uninhibited and unrepentant.

The concert features the best-remembered music from past recordings as well as rare songs from the album Interview which the band was supporting at that time.

Gentle Giant Live at the Bicentennial 1976 is a 2-CD set release available everywhere from November 18th onwards on Alucard Music.

The higher-quality recording used on the CD was donated by Rich Hilton to Alucard Music, from the broadcast on WLIR radio that Rich remastered.

The original artwork is by Ray Shulman, and Carl Glover (Aleph Studios) made it print worthy.
