    Before they formed Gentle Giant, the Shulman brothers did these songs. These songs don't sound anything like Gentle Giant's progressive rock music.

    They had recorded as a band called Simon Dupree & The Big Sound and also recorded a song as The Moles.



    Reginald Dwight (pre Elton John) was in the band for a short time and wrote and recorded this song with the band.

    Hey - they were even on parlophone - the same label that little group from Liverpool was signed to.

    Great find. Quite rare.

    Apparently, these hams go to eleven. That's one more than ten, innit?

    That's awesome. A bit "(Listen to the) Flower People," what?

    That's GG bassist Ray Schulman playing 12-string guitar in this clip, no? Can anyone confirm that the wacky guy with sideburns and knickers drinking from the wine bottle is Phillip Schulman? I recognize his face from the cover of GG's Three Friends album.
