The Giles Brothers are famous for being founders of the band Giles Giles and Fripp, which eventually metamorphosed into King Crimson, one of the giants of Progressive rock. Mike Giles would be a founder of King Crimson along with Robert Fripp, Ian McDonald and Greg Lake. Peter Giles would also join King Crimson briefly in 1970.
The recordings on this album however come from a period when the Giles brothers were members of a number of pure pop, R n B and soul influenced bands. Whilst the material is quite unlike anything the Giles brothers were subsequently involved in these recordings are of a historic nature and as individual singles all the tracks are incredibly collectable.
All the tracks come from the personal archives of Peter and Mike Giles and as such are an interesting look into a period of time during the Giles brother's careers that has previously been less than well documented. The recordings have all been remastered for this release giving them the best possible quality and this release is the first release that gathers together all of these historic performances on one disc.
