McDonald And Giles - McDonald And Giles (1970)



Originally released in 1970. These ex King Crimson pair teamed up to record a stunningly beautiful album with rich musical textures and Abbey Road-esque vocal arrangements and full orchestration, the album continued where their work in King Crimson left off and featured a guest appearance by Steve Winwood. This is a gem that requires immediate attention.

I think you live in the garden of delights... or maybe YOU are ....the delight??
No.. you're just a lovely person who loves great music.
But... i think i'm talking about the same thing..
Next album will be "The Garden of Jane Delawney" or i am wrong?

Hi, anonymous

I was suggesting if anyone would post giles, giles & fripp, not saying that I would post it. I have the original LP, but, unfortunately, as most of my records from that era (mcdonald & giles included), gg&f is in a very very bad shape. It would be a massive task, if possible, to extract an acceptable sound from it.

Thanks for this record - in some sense early king crimson is converting to early caravan.

i thought i have the giles, giles & fripp as mp3 but it wasn´t true.

sometimes i link to your blog:

Thanks for all the well sorted music here.

I have the G,G&F vinyl somewhere. I think it's in pretty good shape.
There's a CD - The Bronesbury Tapes that has some of the Cheerful Insanity stuff. There's a lot of junk on it though. I downloaded it, for free, from emusic.com - 30 day free trial.

Wow - never heard of this and it's great! Some of it reminds me of Os Mutantes (maybe wrongly but that what comes to mind).

Thanks so much!

Am I missing something? This file is only tracks 1-5, but 6-10 are missing? ("Workshop" thru to "Birdman").

Does anyone know how to get the rest of this great album?

The album is complete, the 'missing' tracks you mentioned are all included in track 5.

Ohhhh. So that's why the last track is soooo long!
Thanks so much! I am really enjoying this album.

thank you freaky lady for this.

Blessings! I lost this lyrical and fun album in a 1974 move. Although I stitched together a version of sorts in the Last Days of Napster, it has some issues. Another superb Freaky Lady selection.

I bought this record when it came out in 1970. I still own it, but along with all my other records...they're stored in the basement and I have not played them or unpacked them since the late 80's.

But...I still own em!! Amazingly, I seem to own many of the records that show up on various blogs...so, perhaps that old vinyl collection was worth hanging on to. But, I don't presently own a turntable....so, finding downloads of these records is allowing me to listen to them again...which is great!

thanks for the links!!
