Hey guys,

I've been looking at buying some GG vinyl, I've stumbled upon www.gentlegiantmusic.com which states everything is 100% direct from the band, but it all looks a little sketchy. Just wondering if anyone has purchased any GG merch for here? Or had any experience with this site?

http://www.gentlegiantmusic.com/merch/lps/The-Power-And-The-Glory/ This is what i'm looking at buying, when I click on the purchase link it comes up with a warning message advising me to not go ahead with it as it could be a con. 

If anyone can help me out in regards to buying GG vinyl that would be smashing!

Cheers!

I have almost their whole discography on vinyl. Used record stores are the way to go
I'm so mad that you enjoy a certain combination of noises that I don't

I went to ProgArchives's Gentle Giant page, which had a link to the official GG website, which in turn had a link to the page you have (aka Alucard Music) -- so I'd be pretty confident about this one.  PA is pretty careful about such things, and especially with a band this popular (here), I'd be inclined to trust any site this place deems "official".

I understand your concern though -- how can you ever really know how legit something is?  It can be kind of a gamble sometimes.

If you're talking the first site being blazemonger, that site started out as the unofficial fan page, but they are legit.  I got a mousepad and cap from them.  Also great source for MIDI files of GG music

I just bought a signed copy of "Octopus" and this is the message I got:

"This page is your confirmation that your order has been received by Alucard. Please allow 4 weeks for delivery. The Minnear family is doing all the order processing and packing themselves,so please be patient. Thanks."

Seems pretty good to me.

Thanks!


Since ordering, I had an issue with my payment and having been conversing via e-mail with Lesley Minnear. I don't know what relation she is to Kerry, but it seems to prove all of their claims.
