5 stars I bought this as an double-LP in 1976 in London during a schooltrip, because the man in the store said this was magnificent symphonic rock. I didn't know the band or their music, but I wanted to buy a London souvenir. At home (Holland) I listened to it, and I couldn't believe my ears. Those guys did things with their voices and instruments I had never heard before. It was magic, and it still is. I've bought this LP on CD when the fenomenon called CD came on the market (so it was my first CD) and the LP was grey from the many times I listened to it, and nowadays I listen to it as an MP3 on my iPod. This music stands time magically. I bought all Gentle Giant CD's and I must say I like them a lot, but this live CD will remain their best. This one must be in everybody's music collection.
