    Gentle Giant 2018 Box - Record Label Survey?

    Is 2018 the weight in pounds or is it the year it will be released?

    I don't have a clue about who the other 3 are but this picture featuring GG is a great find.

    They are the band's three friends. They even named an album after them.

    Just seems like a money-making exercise by the record company. Given that the band's entire legit catalogue is readily available, plus about 20 bootlegs, to me the only good reason for a box set would be if it contained a significant amount of unheard stuff. If they have that it's odd that they aren't shouting about it. The fact that they are running a poll to ask what should be included reinforces the impression that there's no pressing need for this to exist, other than the $ reason.

    Then again I am a miserable bastard.

    I dont really see the need for a box.
    I have all their albums LP and CD, 4 of them on Repertoire.
    If they remix/remastered all to the standard 'Repertoire' did, I would perhaps consider.
    Missing Piece really needs a make over!

    A nerd book about GG's history and details regarding the tracks, compostions, instruments, thoughts from the members, etc - I would find much more interesting.

    Gentle Giant 2018 Box - Record Label Survey?

    I have all of the music but it's a disparate collection across labels and formats. I would love a box set in the form of the recent Hillage one, that's how to do these.

    Who gives a damn if it's a money making exercise, you either decide in or out when you see what is on offer.

    As we already have the remastered studio albums and unreleased studio material on Under Construction and Scrapping the Barrell, in my opinion they should release a LIVE BOX SET with one or two blu-ray's.

    I too am dubious. Afterall, they already scraped the barrel. I think I'll be passing on this one.
    The combined fortunes of the world's 26 richest individuals reached $1.4 trillion last year — the same amount as the total wealth of the 3.8 billion poorest people.

    Too me, it boils down to the 5.1 of the catalog!

    Unfortunately, the real draw for me would be more video footage, but my understanding is that the well has been run dry, on that front. Well, I guess if the price wasn't too enormous, it would be nice to have remastered 5.1 versions of the albums, all in one box.

    Well, while we're waiting, they're reissuing the I Lost My Head (The Chrysalis Years 1975-1980) box set in June. Try to restrain your enthusiasm.

    some photos of members together came out awhile ago related to something big that was not a reunion so we presumed it was a meeting about the forthcoming box. but no real details other than it is likely still on track.
