Gentle Giant is delighted to present its first ‘official’ live recording since 1976 'Playing the Fool Live'. Titled 'Gentle Giant Live At The Bicentennial', the recording was taken from a concert on July 3rd 1976 at the Calderone Theater, Hempstead, Long Island, which was broadcast for a local radio station. The band heard this recording for the first time only recently! There are no overdubs or other enhancements on this very live recording. It features Gentle Giant unedited, uninhibited and unrepentant. The concert features the best-remembered music from past recordings as well as rare songs from the album 'Interview' which the band was supporting at that time.
