    Why is Sid spelling his last name with two T's?

    Have you tried pronouncing it Dok? Oh, and the last paragraph from the article...Derek, the forever businessman!

    Great article about Gentle Giant and their Unburied Treasure set; thanks for sharing Dok. PS: Typos happen (which must be the reason for the misspelling of Sid Smith's name).

    I can't Dave. Can you help with that? BTW have you listened to the whole box yet?

    He has another article in Prog about Amon Duul II and it's spelled that same way. I thought it might have possibly been someone different until I saw the link to the GG article on his FB page.

    I only have the twilight 2cd release. All my original GG was "nicked" over the years. A 30 CD set may be just what I need. Depends on the cost. been waiting for a box set. 20 disks is a bit overwhelming, but - OK, I can dream.
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    Re-evaluating Giant for a Day. Itís not horrible.

    Itís more guitar orientated than other GG albums, and not as good as other GG albums, but Iím quite enjoying it. I mean, a Gary Green-centric album canít be awful, right?

    It is a great pop album!
    I can understand why prog nerds hate it, but for me, good music is good music!

    It has GGisms in it if you listen to the writing aspect of the music. It's more complex than your typical pop album, but just doesn't reach the heights of creativity like their progressive music. It's the album I'd reach for last in their catalogue but I wouldn't call it trash.

    Is the quality of the studio albums on this set marked better than other releases?
