About the Album

A bootleg, multi-artist, vinyl compilation (TAKRL) including one Gentle Giant unreleased live track, The Runaway. Though labeled as "The Runaway," actually it is the medley of "The Runaway" + keyboard bridge + "Experience" (edited). The recording is likely taken from the KBFH 1975 show (Jan 18 1975, Academy of Music, New York, USA).

The 27 tracks range from the Beatles' "Nowhere Man" to Groucho Marx's "Hooray for Captain Spaulding."
