@Gerry If you go to link for the full concert that I posted earlier in this thread, there`s a very nice vibes solo starting just before the 47:00 mark. Unfortunately, though, I don`t think they use a xylophone in concert.

There is, however, a very nice xylophone solo at the 2:00 mark in the studio version of Knots.

Cool song, but the recorder should not make a pro comeback.

I had the pleasure of seeing Giant live about a half-dozen times in the 70`s. The first time was in 1972 when they opened for Mahavishnu Orchestra at Madison Square Garden`s Felt Forum. What a show! That was back when all three Shulman brothers were still in the band.

If you love Giant, check out videos on YouTube by an outfit called Three Friends, started by Gary Green, Kerry Minnear and Malcolm Mortimore (the drummer from the first album) to perform Giant music live.
This is a good one.

[quote] the lead singer in white [/quote] I mean the guy that talked at the very beginning. Not the guy with the glasses, that`s Gary Green. Kerry Minnear on the cello. The guy in the Oakland A`s jersey is John Weathers. Sort of funny that he`s a baseball fan since he is from Wales. The Shulman brothers are from Portsmouth.

Thanks, Jake. This is truly a classic. If I`m correct, this is from a BBC concert when they were touring behind "The Missing Piece." The whole concert (1 hr.) is available here.

Great submission, Jake J - I love this band but very few people have heard their music. Always very complex. And yes, DromEd, definitely Jethro Tull-ish but with much more musical complexity. Note that the lead singer in white and the violin guy in the suit vest are brothers (Derek and Ray Shulman) so they have that sibling harmony thing going. All of them play several instruments.

Nice. Reminded me of Rush meets Jethro Tull.
