Gentle Giant - Acquiring The Taste CD

SKU 28-FNIS842917.2
Gentle Giant's 2nd album, and, for the time it was released in 1971, an extremely adventurous rock work (and one with a stupendously ugly cover!).

I remember getting this around 1973/74 and reading the liner notes and devouring the following: "It is our goal to expand the frontiers of popular music at the risk of being very unpopular. We have recorded each composition with one thought - that it should be unique, adventurous and fascinating. It has taken every shred of our combined musical and technical knowledge to achieve this."

Only in the late 60's or very early 70's was a statement like that a *selling* point! A very ambitious rock album and a fairly major statement in many ways; not their peak, but a peak of adventurousness in 1971 and their first masterpiece.
