To Mr. Rockette:

I never said they owe me anything Mr. Rockette! But I was already heartbroke that I wasnít going to be able to see them. NO NASVILLE SHOWS, NO CINCINNATI SHOWS. I was hoping a video would have been released on a special tour like this one.
And your remark about a dvd being expensive lacks merit, because a GOOD SEAT WAS A MINIMUM $300! If they canít afford to produce a dvd making that kind of money THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG!
I drove all the way to Cleveland Ohio to the Odeon to see them in 2000. You know how much I paid? $20 and some change!
Hearing this music is one experience, and seeing the physical energy that goes into this music is a totally different experience.
Because I couldnít afford to fly across the country and shell out $300 to see this show, as amazing as I know it was, That tells me that if Iím not rich, then I donít matter!

With respect, your expectations are way too high. This was a first venture for a radically new KC line-up after years of inactivity. No-one knew how it would turn out, and committing to filming shows for DVD release (a very expensive undertaking if you want multiple camera angles, surround mixes etc.) was obviously a step too far. Gavin Harrison has said all the concerts were recorded on multitrack, so it looks likely thereíll be an audio release.
>This is a big F**K YOU to us blue collar working class King Crimson fans
>Perhaps John Lydon was correct in his assumption in the 70s when "Prog" bands such as Genesis, became popular with the doctor and lawyer crowd, he accused them of taking rock ín roll away from the working class. Has King Crimson joined the ranks?
Class has nothing to do with this, nor has DGM going "corporate". DGM has released a huge amount of material for committed fans, and King Crimson, who have battled on in some shape or form for 45 years, donít owe their listeners anything.

Well, that surely turns my prediction into mush. I would have sworn that with this big of a deal there would be a DVD of the best of events. Oh well...
Listener request for when you guys start putting out the downloads: please engineer Pat, Bill and Gavin exactly how they were set up - Pat (left), Bill (center), Gavin (right). The beauty of seeing them live was seeing which drummed did what and when they did unison lines.
Any time frame as to when the first of the downloads will happen?

Yeah, me neither, and, yes, I saw them on the tour. The much bigger disappointment that thereís not going to be a Blu Ray! That $25, which is burning a hole in my pocket, will just have to be re-directed toward a ticket to a live Stick Men gig instead...

Not sure which is more laughable, the whining or the scolding. The Lady or the Tiger...
Memories of ITCOTCK
:: Posted by simkin_eden on October 11, 2014
I was sixteen years old, in secondary school in a coastal town in East Anglia (UK).
I became friends with a another boy who was a semi-professional drummer even at that age, one afternoon we walked after school to one of the record shops in the town and there was ITCOTCK in one of the racks, too expensive for either of us to afford.
My friend looked through the bargain bin, removed a low price sticker from one these LPs stuck it on ITCOTCK and then went and bought it at this much reduced price. How he knew of this LP I donít know, unlike me he wasnít as surprised when he first played it.
The totally misleading quiet swirling wind sounds suddenly shattered by raging guitar and almost shouted angry lyrics just blasting out. I was hooked, and here I am 45 years later still listening, still engaged with it, still impressed by the musicianship, still hearing something new in each recording.
Once Schizoid Man finished, the next track was too a surprise, nothing like what Iíd just heard. This was not the way we expected things back then!
ITCOTCK is one of a unique group of recordings, without wishing to sound too pompous, the 20th century equivalents of the works of classical composers of previous centuries - music that will endure.

HarrySpade is right on! I could not have said it better. I do not understand all the fuss about the fact that there will be no DVD of this fall tour. Music is what count and downloads, hopefully sooner than later, will do the job for me.
