An excellent collection of rare Gentle Giant material spanning over their career, with stuff like unreleased songs and live tracks, demo's and out-takes and other stuff that should be of interest to any Gentle Giant fan. It's interesting to hear how they "constructed" the songs here (hence the title "Under Construction") and in total, you get nearly 150 minutes of GG rarities that is definetely worth the price you pay for it if you are interested to hear how this band constructed their songs and other rare material from them. Many songs here, notably the unreleased songs from their debut LP days, have excellent sound quality as well, though not always. Defenetely a must for fans! (review by BJ1 from progarchives.com)
