4 stars I don't have this album. What I have is "KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR PRESENTS GENTLE GIANT", but it's the same recording of "EXPERIENCE", the only difference is that the tracks are in a different order. Perhaps you should get "PLAYING THE FOOL" first, but this one is basically the same. Some tracks are cutted by the half by the band (The Runaway) and others are estended (So Sincere, that contains the famous "Five Man Percussion Bash", that consists of Derek, Ray, Gary, Kerry and John playing drums). Some arranges are way better than the studio ones, and Excerpts From Octopus kicks ass with an acoustic version of "The Boys In The Band", and a faster version of "Knots", plus a flute interversion on "Advent Of Panurge". "Funny Ways" gets an sevage vibraphone solo from Kerry Minnear, and "Proclamation" is much better with only 5 minutes, as it gets more straight to the point. Highly recomended.
