Gentle Giant discography

Gentle Giant is one of the first (and arguably most important) prog discoveries that listeners make for themselves. Radio having raided the catacombs of Yes, ELP, Tull, Genesis, Queen, Pink Floyd, only the catalog of Gentle Giant among them remains pristine to the neophyte. And what treasures await you: dazzling counterpoint, sublime harmonies, concept albums of intricate design. I've dug many a hole and had only a handful of sand to show for it simply because I remember the joy of discovery I had when I first heard Gentle Giant (in my case, I stumbled on the cornerstone of Three Friends first). In my book, Gentle Giant are the patron saints of unexpected delights, and discovering that such things existed below the surface of things remains one of my warmest musical memories.
