More information: Gentle Giant was considered to be one of the most experimental bands in the genre (as well as one of the most experimental rock bands of the 1970s). Their music was considered complex even by progressive rock standards, drawing on a broad swathe of music including folk, soul, jazz, and classical music. A collection of music drawing from the bandís first 6 albums including their 'The Power And The Glory album'. From this collection you get a good idea of what the Giant was all about. A very good starting point for beginners.
