Not too many bands had that kind of quality control for so long.


Agreed - a very consistent band and in my view a spot on appraisal Matt.

Except one point, and I suppose it's a subjective thing, but one could argue Octopus was GG's Selling England...?

I selected Octopus because it was probably their most popular/successful album. I could have easily selected two or three others...

Oh, no doubt Octopus seems to be the consensus choice as to the best GG album - it tops most online polls you'll find. It's not my fave though, I don't really know which one would be. In a Glass House maybe, The Power and the Glory?

To my surprise I came across this album in my collection, can't ever remember buying it or even having it. They didn't have a lot going for them did they?

A couple or three goons have asked me about this.

Sadly this is the best I can do.

It's an absolute corker!

Vey nice Indeed. That track sounds like it could have been on the live album of Ummagumma.

Saw this lot live the day after Jimi died, needless to say they did a tribute.

My view too Matt

And maybe Three Friends

In a Glass House is my favourite

For me, a rather inconsistent band

This is a good 'un though - back to their heavier roots:
