I just got Lady Lake, and think its excellent, long time have I wanted to get hold of Gnidrolog and finally I have this wonderful album. Which is your favorite?

I do not know Gnosis, but first two are excellent. Can't say which one is better - say one year ago I was totally in love with Lady Lake and the first one seemed to me less brilliant. However lately I tend to prefer the first one, so it's really difficult to choose here - both are Great!!!

Depends when you ask me, but right now I'd say Lady Lake.  Both are different, yet excellent, 4.5 star albums.  Don't have Gnosis, but I doubt it's as good as their '72 albums.

Have and love both, but still Toe Nail! By far.

Its darker, more complex and more aggressive, if you like that. But also more medieval/folk sounding. Never really warmed up to I Could Never be a Soldier.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

I know nothing about Gnosis, but I have both In Spite of Harry's Toe-nail and Lady Lake on one disc (2-in-1 edition). Both albums are superb, it is just impossible for me to choose any of them as a favourite. Both are favourites, or, if you want, the whole disc with two albums on it is a favourite. Can't vote.
 
I would like, however, to acquaint myself with those obscure bonus tracks of In Spite of Harry's Toe-nail (they don't appear on 2-in-1 edition disc) as well as with the live 1972 album...

Can tell you with all my love to their two albums, these bonus track are of so awful quality, that I have to skip them all the time to avoid spoiling pleasure of listening to the main material.

Well, that's sad.
 
BTW, how do you pronounce the name of the band?

Where is the stress -- at the ultimate syllable or at the penultimate one? People are always in shock when I tell them about this band. It reminds them (and me too) of "nit"... Something like a "nit specialist"...

Emphasis on penultimate syllable - makes it sounds exactly like that - brilliant. When I told my Russian friend that I got aquainted with gnidrolog he fell laughing. By the way Wobbler also sounds quite funny to slavonic ears - Во бля ! - just perfect. LOL

no-no, it sounds too much like catalogue, I prefer it the other way round.

The question is -- whether the Goldring brothers themselves know how their band's name sounds to Slavic ears?
 
As for Wobbler -- for me it's either eater or catcher of вобла...

Do not know for sure but they could well have known...
 
Why catcher or eater - just вобла - great name for a band as well.

Yes, it's a great name... with connotations...

But some pronounce "mister" as [mista] and "wobbler" as [wobla], LOL
 
But we are hijacking this thread with our philological exercises...

Anyway, Gnidrolog is an incredible group, and, still, I would like at least to listen to their live 1972 album.
