Gentle Giant - City Hermit British Radio Sessions & Rare Early Tracks 1970-1972 LP Limited to 500 copies, black vinyl released in beautiful, laminated cover with cool pictures of the band. Gentle Giant were British progressive rock band similar to early Genesis, King Crimson and Jethro Tull. This 58 minute album contains early radio sessions (live in studio with some basic overdubs) and unreleased studio tracks done at the time of their first 4 albums  It also included some very good compositions unreleased on any band's studio album!

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
