4 stars An amazing live-album, recorded in 1978 on - as far as I know - the Missing Piece Tour. "In Concert" marks Gentle Giants first appearence on British television. The songs are a mix of the Free Hand and the "The Missing Piece" era. The sound quality is rather good, you can clearly hear each instrument. On this CD the giants convince with complex songs just as the more catchy songs. For me as a huge Gentle Giant-Fan this CD is something very special for two reasons:

1.) This CD is extremly rare, it is nearly not gettable. So I'm lucky I could get this one.

2.) This reason is much more important than the first one: The live-album contains lots of songs who you usually can not find on Gentle Giant-live-recordings. These Songs are: Playing The Game, Two Weeks In Spain, Memories Of Old Days, Betcha Thought We Couldn't Do It, I'm Turning Around, For Nobody and Mountain Time.

The booklet includes a short text about Gentle Giant and its roots.

Though this live-album is not as full of atmosphere and power as for example "Playing The Fool", this CD is a must for anyone who likes great live-recordings.
