    Info: 4th LP by Gentle Giant released in 1972. This is my 2nd favorite of theirs, and it's truly an AMAZING album of technical Eclectic Prog Rock. There are some folk/medieval influences that are used marvelously, like on "Raconteur Troubadour" which gets stuck in my head every time I hear it. It's like a 16th century prog song. "Knots" is the most amazing Prog Composition ever with it's layered usage of vocals and quirky instrumentation. It's beyond description. You MUST hear it!! They later did another song like it on a later album in the same quirky and vocal-layered style. This is a landmark album and a definite MUST for anyone claiming to like Prog Rock, especially of an Eclectic nature.
    There are 2 versions of the LP cover - one is the main gatefold, the other is shaped like a jar (both pictured below).

    A huge thank you to my Aunt Barbara for turning me onto this band around 1991. She was into them in the 70's when she was in her 20's.
