I hope 'Power and the Glory' gets a re-release.  You need a king's ransom to buy this on Amazon at the moment.  It's more scarce than return-journey kamikazee pilots.

I've found it to be the hardest of the Classic GG to get, still don't have it. Cry
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

It is sold absolutely nowhere in the Netherlands. I've searched for quite a while with no relusts. The thing is that it's the only GG album I really like (I know that from listening to the songs on Youtube), which makes it even more frustrating.

According to the press release (as reproduced on the official site):

"More Gentle Giant music will be available in a variety of formats in 2010, starting with the January release of the seven CDs Re-Mastered from the original 1" inch tapes through Hi-Resolution (24bit 96k) transfer. First quarter of 2010 will also find box sets and Limited Edition Vinyl LPs."

So I'd hold on to your hard-earned cash for the time being. Wink

The box sets makes the whole thing very expensive... especially if they mean to publish vynil box sets as Genesis done recently...
Pardon me for my egnorance, but what is the exact difference between these remasters and recently remastered album such as Glass house and TPTG?

^ Whats all that about? In a Glas House available - we know this and we know its excellent
 
Anyway the remastered "Free Hand" Is worth grabbing apart from anything else. i dont think a remastered'Octopus' would change the fact that it is disappointing GG

These new remasters are AWESOME.  I was gifted with a few of the 35th anniversary remasters a few years back.  I always though the In a Glass House remaster was terrible.  Lots of humming and buzzing (especially at the beginning of Experience).  These new remasters are crystal clear.  I'm probably going to slowly replace the 35th anniv. cd's with these.
