    Grannie ~ 1971 ~ Granniegenre: heavy prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 36'31" size: 170 mb

    Tapestry Of Delights : 
    This is one of these mega-rare privately-pressed albums which originally only appeared in demo form with just a handful of copies being available in a home-made paste-on sleeve. The musical menu is guitar-dominated heavy progressive rock but with sufficient melody to make it worth a listen. It contains six cuts in all with Coloured Armageddon Leaving, the punchy Saga Of A Sad Jester and Leaving, which had some melodic guitar work, the pick of the bunch.

    Gentle Giant ~ 1975 ~ Free Handgenre: prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (wv, cue, log, scans)

    ProgressiveRock : 
    Chrysalis Records released Free Hand in the UK, purportedly from a relation the band made after touring with Jethro Tull. Here Giant replaces the uniformity of the previous album for a more playful atmosphere. The first side revolves around the themes of broken relationships, personal and otherwise. "Just The Same" kicks things off with a rather choppy rhythm, but its highlight is the break - one minute soaring, the next quirky. "On Reflection" is a throwback to "Knots"; it’s a cappella rounds are arranged with mediaeval flavor, with a gentle vocal break from Minnear. "Free Hand" is the rocker, but unfortunately suffers from protracted arrangement and an abrupt ending. The more concise live versions of these songs would kick them up a notch and become concert favorites. The second side is less straightforward. Opening with a classic Atari Pong sample, "Time to Kill" has a sharper tempo that lends a certain swing to the arrangement. Complex, multi-faceted, and ornate, "His Last Voyage" is Giant doing what they do best. The atypical break features a particularly haunting piano riff, followed by another great Green solo. The instrumental "Talybont" is pure renaissance music. "Mobile" moves along with a jig’s pace although it has an air of earlier works, particularly in the interplay between violin and acoustic guitar, and the wah-wah break. The album barley scraped the lower reaches of the UK charts, but became their first and only album to break the Top 50 in the US. Further touring kept the band busy until their next record.
