Tony's King Collider

Hi Tony, thanks for sharing your visit to the CERN. You were amazed by big numbers, 40 million pictures/s, but found 100meg each wasnít so big. Absolutely youíre right... but did you realize each one may only cover few mm≤ or even far less. Please grab this small number for us.
Seear you in Paris, 3 dec.
Tour Box 2016
:: Posted by ulrichspiegel on September 18, 2016
Will the 2016 Tour Box be made available to all non-concert- goers just like the two tour boxes before?
I do hope so.
The tour box will be made available later this year.

thanks for the downloads from this tour.
Are there any plans to make complete shows available in the future?
Iíve seen this incarnation three times (24th september 2015,11th/12th september 2016) and they get better and better :)
And one question:
The beginning of level five (11th september) sounds strange,it starts out really quiet, sounds like a technical error?
These downloads are hot of the sound desk taken on the fly as it were. As with all the other downloads on the site from numerous line-ups over the years, you'll hear deficiencies, discrepancies, disparities and these are only words beginning with a D at this time.
Radical Action Track Question
:: Posted by pyroseed13 on September 17, 2016
I was a little disappointed to see that the liner notes do not list which shows the Radical Action tracks were culled from. Is there any overlap with the Blu Ray set? Amazing collection by the way. The band is sounding better than ever!
Where's the proper group picture?
:: Posted by crimsonkng on September 17, 2016
Just got my Monkey Mind DVD. Canít wait to watch and listen!
But I had to post my first impression ... thereís no decent group picture of the band! Very strange.
The inside cover shot is, obviously, a rehearsal picture ... Pat isnít even in it. (Unless heís one of the guys in the shadow with his back toward the camera.) And then a couple pages in, Pat and Billís backs are toward the camera and half of Gavinís drums are out of the picture. Then, a few more pages in, Gavinís back is toward the camera and you can hardly see Pat.
Come on, guys! You mean you canít even take the time to include a proper, group picture of Crim performing? I wouldíve liked to have shown (to my friends who are not familiar with Crim) a nice, proper, group picture as they appeared in concert. But it appears that whoever put together the booklet, just got lazy and decided: eh, weíll just put these pictures in ... who cares, right?
Wrong. Very disappointing.
(Yes, there are close-ups of each individual musician but that doesnít get the point across.)
What a drag ...
Re - Second night in Stuttgart

Thank you very much for your answer Sid!
And to answer your question, I am absolutely loving the downloads from the four other shows made available so far! I find that these versions of the songs are all as good (if not better) than the ones from Radical Action (which I do also own), mostly because I find that the drummers have much more presence/we can hear them much better (and I am a huge fan of the drumming in this lineup of King Crimson!).
Starless and Level Five from this tour are the two downloads I am really enjoying the most and I think that these versions are better than on Radical Action. On this version of Starless, every member is absolutely stunning, even if itís the drumming on Starless which really impresses me, especially during the middle section! But unfortunately Tony Levinís Bass is a little too quiet for my liking during this section. The drumming on Level Five is fabulous and it seems like the parts are more elaborate and complex, and I find it suits the song better.
Sailors Tale is also great and I found that the Mellotron parts were greatly interpreted by Mr Stacey.
As I havenít yet had time to really listen to the second CD of Radical Action, the new download is the first version of Suitable Grounds that I have heard properly. I like it, but not as much as the other new songs (Radical Action, Meltdown and Hell Hounds of Krim which I all think are better).
And finally, I sadly havnít got any of the Tour Boxes... But thatís OK because Iím busy listening to the downloads of the actual 2016 live shows!
Anyway, thanks again for your answer Sid!
Second night in Stuttgart
:: Posted by christoquinn on September 17, 2016
I was at the second show in Stuttgart (Friday 9 September), and was totally amazed both by the setlist (which included lots of my favourite King Crimson songs which I wasnít expecting) and by the quality of the playing on that night!
Only I have noticed that a song from Stuttgart the night before (Thursday 8) has been put online, but then the next song to have been uploaded is from Berlin on September 11!
Will a song from the second night in Stuttgart be put online? Or has it been decided not to put a song from every night of the tour on this website? I hope that this isnít the case and that a song of this show will be available for download because it really was a truly incredible and memorable evening!
Hi Christoquinn - no idea as to the answer to you question but are you enjoying the downloads from the four shows you weren't at? What's your favourite moment of the four tracks made available so far? Any player stand out? Any aspect of the new version for Level 5 or Sailors Tale or Starless surprise you? Any thoughts on Suitable Grounds? Have you had a chance to hear Radical Action yet? Or how about the two discs of the Tour Box?

So pleased to see that someone at DGM has taken pity on me and re-instated Robertís diaries.
This early capitulation has, no doubt, saved everyone from any hours of lobbying and exhortations.
Now if only Robert could be persuaded to make new entries...
There was some maintenance work being done hence the short outage.
Being For The Benefit of Mr Bamford
:: Posted by rogadaire on September 16, 2016
As no-one else seems to have picked up on this I thought I would do so, albeit slightly late in the day.
As unfortunate as it is that Daniel Bamford does not much care for íCyclops Boyí (an unnerving portrait which I think is rather spiffing, myself) it should not really be such a surprise that he did not receive a response from P J Crook to his enquiry about the painting, because P J Crook is not the artist responsible for it. That would be Francesca Sundsten.
Carry on, all.

Got to say that the concept of virtual albums on the new release works brilliantly.I keep forgetting the tracks are from live shows. The mixing is superb and itís a pleasure to hear different musical nuances with each listen. A very different beast from toronto.Glad to have both.
