Lot 36GENTLE GIANT-ACQUIRING THE TASTE-1971-FIRST PRESS UK-VERTIGO-NMINT/NMINT

GENTLE GIANT-ACQUIRING THE TASTE-1971-FIRST PRESS UK-VERTIGO-6360 041. Mega rare British original in top condition. Acquiring the Taste is the second studio album by the British rock band Gentle Giant, released in 1971 by Vertigo Records. It was a departure from the blues and soul styles found on their self-titled debut. It was more experimental, more dissonant, and with more diverse instrumentation. In the sleeve text, the band made this famous statement:Our goal is to expand the boundaries of modern popular music, at the risk of being very unpopular. We wrote down each essay with one thought in mind-that it should be unique, adventurous and exciting. It took all of our combined musical and technical knowledge. From the outset we have abandoned all preconceived thoughts about the blatant commercialism. Instead, we hope to give you something much more substantial and fulfilling. All you have to do is sit back and get a taste. The album cover has some subtext in that it is made to look like a tongue licking the anus. However, when it's fully open, it's actually a tongue licking a peach. In 2005, it was included in Pitchfork's list of "the worst record covers of all time".

The vinyl record is in a clean top condition, on the S1 light mark (only visually), with reservations - NMINT/ARCHIVE. The cover is a matte spread in top condition - NMINT / ARCHIVE. Labels as new - NMINT/ARCHIVE.
