Kevin Gilbert's Giraffe - The Power Of Suggestion + The View From Here ristampati e rimasterizzati

Della grandezza di Kevin Gilbert abbiamo già parlato e non starò a presentarlo di nuovo. Quindi, dopo la celebrata riedizione del suo capolavoro The Shaming of the True, Jon Rubin - esecutore testamentario del materiale di Gilbert - ha finalmente realizzato il sogno di molti. Sono infatti ora disponibili le ristampe in edizione rimasterizzata dei due album dei Giraffe (la band di Gilbert negli anni '80) a lungo fuori catalogo, dei quali esistevano solo pochissimi esemplari (io comunque la mia copia originale di The Power Of Suggestion ce l'ho). Jon ha parlato anche di una possibile riedizione di Thud, il primo album solista uscito nel 1995, con materiale aggiuntivo, ma ancora c'è qualche problema di diritti d'autore da superare.

Available for the first time in more than 15 years the first Giraffe CD The Power of Suggestion. This seminal work propelled Kevin into the spotlight and on to win the Yamaha Song Vision contest.
This CD contains early versions of some of the material on TSOTT and Thud. This version is the entire CD as it was originally released. The CD has been meticulously re-mastered from the original analog tapes. That and advances in CD technology have made this version much better sounding than the original. It is a must have for all KG fans.

One interesting note: The Power of Suggestion was the first independent CD ever released.

Available for the first time in more than 20 years Giraffe’s second CD The View From Here. This version is the entire CD as it was originally released.

This CD contains early versions of some of the material on TSOTT and Thud. The CD has been meticulously re-mastered from the original analog tapes. That and advances in CD technology have made this version much better sounding than the original. It is a must have for all KG fans.

One interesting note: Many of the original The View From Here CDs would not play making a playable version an even rarer commodity.
