Is this the best progressive rock album ever?
Simply amazing and eclectic in every single musical aspects.
One of the most musically clever band ever existed.
The weather reports of prog Rock.

Some how in my teens I didn’t come across GG . I ve been listening to prog since I was 13 , Yes ,ELP , Pink Floyd, Uriah Heep etc all 60s 70s rock went to record fairs even as CDs were arriving. I even loved Roger Dean art but never saw a GG record. Finally a couple of years ago I connected the dots between Roger Deans Octopus picture and a band called Gentle Giant . I now have all albums from their first to interview. Power and the Glory is my favourite ,a solid album . The music isn’t for every one but what music is? For me they hit the spot and to find a band that’s new to your own ears that are unique ,talented ,surprising and definately challenging at this stage in the world of music is a rare thing.

My copy states "Printed in The Netherlands" on the back cover. at some point I'd like to post some photos of the back cover and center labels.

Where is "Published By as Alucard Music" on the cover? I don't see that anywhere on my copy. Mine has the spaceship labels with the "Excellency Music" text, but no Alucard anywhere. Just curious as I'm trying to pin-point what version I have. I bought it new in 1972 or 73 as a UK import.

Does the Lp Cover state which country in Europe it was printed?

These guys must have been incredible live, because otherwise I have never got the fascination with them.
I found this version clean for a buck, and love the cover art, and it's a cool listen, but great?

I have a copy of PC 32022 that is die-cut and has the lyrics sleeve. The Columbia label is the red/orange version.

The worst CD remaster of this album . Very compressed and brickwalled.
