Originally released in 1972, Octopus is Gentle Giantís fourth album, and featured band members Gary Green (guitars, percussion), Kerry Minnear (keyboards, vibraphone, percussion, cello, vocals), Derek Shulman (vocals, alto saxophone), Phil Shulman (saxophones, trumpet, mellophone, vocals), Ray Shulman (bass violin, guitar, percussion, vocals) and John Weathers (drums, percussion, xylophone). The album was produced by the band and engineered and mixed by Martin Rushent. For this new digipak edition, Steven Wilson tastefully remixed the album as well as a bonus mix of 15-minute concert performances of "Excerpts from Octopus" from the band's 1976 tour. The Blu Ray contains the Steven Wilson DTS 5.1 Surround Sound Master Audio mix, instrumental mixes of 5 of the original 8 tracks from the album in 96/24 PCM, as well as a flat transfer of the original mix of the album, taken directly from the original ľ inch tape. New sketches by Roger Dean (who produced the original UK album cover) are included in the new packaging as well as artwork from the USA album (an octopus in a jar created by Charles White).
