The only official Gentle Giant video DVD
15 January 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Giant on the Box was Gentle Giant's first official DVD. It contains:

1974 concert from German TV station ZDF. Tracks include Cogs in Cogs, Proclamation, Funny Ways, The Runaway, Experience, Features from Octopus, Advent of Panurge, So Sincere. 50 minutes.

1975 US TV concert from the Terrace Theater, Long Beach, California. Tracks include Experience, Features from Octopus, Advent of Panurge, Funny Ways. 30 minutes

Szene '74: a short bit of rare footage from the 1974 tour, filmed by German television station BRW. It's an excerpt from "In a Glass House" but you might not recognize it at first (I didn't): a blistering guitar jam based on some of the material from the second part ("Master inner voices..."). Sounds almost like heavy metal. 3 minutes

Baroque & Roll: black & white footage and interview from Italian television. 22 minutes. (English translation)

Photo gallery from Gary's private collection. 36 photos

Plus original, instrumental music by Kerry is played over the DVD menus.
