First Generation (Scenes From 1969-1971)': This is a compilation of Van Der Graaf Generation which was released in 1986. It's a compilation that includes tracks from three studio albums of them, their second studio album 'The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other', released in 1970, their third studio album 'H To He, Who Am The Only One', released also in 1970, and their fourth studio album 'Pawn Hearts', released in 1971  . Godbluff': This is my favourite Van Der Graaf Generator's album. Despite I deeply love, practically all of their musical studio works of the 70's, it always had and it always will have a very special place into my heart.

After a "Top Gear" build up like that, they can't really go wrong". The Least We Can Do is Wave to Each Other.

Trying to assemble a Van Der Graaf Generator overview really is a much harder task than might be expected; the group may have produced few albums in total, but deciding what can be excerpted from each one is a nightmare. Great music, as always (and poor mastering), but not the best foot forward, certainly - Second Generation is considerably better.

Van der Graaf Generator (англ. Генератор Ван де Граафа) - английская прогрессив-рок группа 70-х годов. Имя группы происходит от названия электростатического генератора Ван де Граафа (Van de Graaff generator). Небольшая орфографическая ошибка в написании скорее всего случайна. Группа была сформирована в 1967 году в период учёбы ее членов в Манчестерском университете (Manchester University).

Van Der Graaf Generator is back! In their 5th studio album, 'Godbluff,' the first after they reformed in 1975, the band displays their trade progressive rock, but with a whole host of new sounds. Peter Hammill, songwriter and bandleader, had left the group following, 'Pawn Hearts' and focused on his own, very introspective works. He brought this darker, quieter tone back, evidenced by, 'The Undercover Man,' the lead track on the album, which begins at a whisper. Van Der Graaf, as I am again obliged to state, is NOT for everyone, and "Godbluff" (like their other CLASSIC record, "Pawn Hearts") is almost sure to scare off timid or casual listeners. To unattuned ears, it's rough, Hammill's voice is not "pretty" in the Michael Bolton sense, although Hamill was definitely capable of it.

e210013 February 7th 19. "The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other", "H To He, Who Am The Only One" and "Pawn Hearts" belong, with their debut studio album "The Aerosol Grey Machine", to their first musical period. These three albums are the best of their first four studio albums. H To He, Who Am The Only One" and "Pawn Hearts" are also considered with "Godbluff" and "Still Life", from their second musical period, the four greatest masterpieces from the band. So, the material on here is all of the first class.

I got one of these off Amazon recently. Was surprised to find it's a CDr. Is this what EMI are up to these days? Pressing back catalogue on CDr? Cheapskates. The thing looks authentic (and would anybody bother to bootleg this?) Booklet and card backing are a bit thin and there's no sleeve notes.Strange times we live in.
