Groove Giants (Groove Merchant)

Groove Merchant released a series of double LPs in 1975 each bearing the slogan: Groove Giants: A Specially Priced Two Record Set. The majaority of the double albums brought together two albums by a single musicians that had previously been released on Groove Merchant, though some of the series bought together music by different musicians and one release appears to be music from non-Groove Merchant releases.
