A dicembre ne uscirà una versione in vinile, per ora possono ben bastare quelle in cd e blu-ray: è Octopus, uno degli album più conosciuti e amati dei Gentle Giant storici (1972), rivisto da Steven Wilson e pubblicato dall'etichetta dei coniugi Minnear, Alucard. Se anche solo la metà di quanti lo fecero allora partissero da qui per (ri)scoprire R. D. Laing...

A brand new edition, partly remixed into both high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround sound, of the classic fourth album from one of the most gifted and ambitious of the original wave of seventies progressive rock bands. 5 of the 8 tracks have been remixed by Steven from the multitrack master tapes at 96/24 and this is a 2 disc Blu-Ray/CD edition on the band’s own label Alucard. Also includes bonus track of a 16 minute live version of Extracts from Octopus, again newly mixed into stereo and 5.1 surround sound. The blu-ray additionally includes a flat transfer of the original 1972 mix, and instrumental versions of the 5 stereo remixes, all in high resolution. 6 panel digipack with 16 page booklet, including new sketches from original front cover creator Roger Dean.
