Listen to Steven Wilson’s new mix of Gentle Giant’s Interview

From Loudersound.

Steven Wilson has remixed Gentle Giant‘s 1976 album Interview, and the title track  has been released as a new single and video.

The album is being reissued through Chrysalis Records on June 16 on 180g vinyl, while the CD/Blu-ray version includes Wilson’s Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround sound remixes, as well as the original 1976 stereo mix, the original 1976 quad mix, instrumental mixes, and custom visuals for each track.

Interview was the band’s eighth studio album and was originally released on April 23 1976. The album was a concept album conceived as a radio interview. Three of the tracks integrate brief “interview” sections which were staged in the studio, featuring then Sounds writer Phil Sutcliffe.

A special limited sky blue coloured vinyl version of the Steven Wilson remix will also be available.

Co-founding bassist and composer Ray Shulman sadly passed away earlier this month aged 73. Brother Derek said, “I was with him until the end as he bravely battled a long illness. At least I know he is now at peace.” A full tribute to Ray will appear in the next issue of Prog Magazine.

    GENTLE GIANT In A Glass House (1973 UK first press 6-track LP on the black & silver WWA label [this album did not come out on the Vertigo swirl label in the UK], for many their finest record. Comes housed in a striking die-cut textured sleeve complete with PVC window, art print card insert. Because the textured sleeves were never laminated they were prone to storage wear with age, however this one has suffered only minor shelfwear and is overall in fantastic condition for its styleandage. The vinyl too is nice & clean & shows only minor cosmetic evidence of light play, a great copy of this Prog rock gem! WWA002)
