Sleepless
:: Posted by AgentOrange on April 04, 2016

How about for future Hot Tickle consideration the Francois Kevorkian remixes of Sleepless only available as a Maxi-Single 45 RPM 12 inch vinyl long out of print? Or do we have to wait for a deluxe Three Of A Perfect Pair 40th Anniversary Edition when the band celebrates itís 50th anniversary? Tony Levin's mix of Sleepless, along with Bob Clearmountain's and F. Kervorkian's, have already been released on the 30th Anniversary edition of Three Of A Perfect Pair. Stormy

Live in Toronto 2015!
:: Posted by dan65536 on April 02, 2016

I have to cast my vote for this concert as one of the best complete live shows ever offered here on DGM live...  and also in favor of this incarnation, complete with the 3 drummer/percussionists, as one of the best sounding groups who have ever borne the KC moniker. Granted, these "Brothers Crim" are the only combination Iíve ever seen live (in my case, in Philadelphia in Sept. 2014) but Iíve also bought a good number of downloads and CDís inside and outside the DGM catalogue.
Particularly Level Five seems to benefit, and some aural circuit in my brain seems to grok it, but intellectually I could not say why.  Although I enjoyed Live At The Orpheum, and both tour disc sets (2014 and 2015), Toronto 2015 seems to be just an iota more resolved on how these new Crim tracks should sound - and how new renditions of the old tracks should sound.
Every incarnation will be different and, as I would expect King Crimsonís public to know by now, will have its unique take on that ethereal strain of cosmic primality that presents itself to us --  the devoted fans of KC and its ProjeKcts -- through their music.

I think the drumming is íover the topí at certain times on this live Crimson gig. The tracks Red & Level 5 are not my favourite tracks here. Level Five I have struggled to get into before this live recording & Red the instrumental, is my least favourite track on that otherwise superb album. Everything else sounds rather good though, especially the íclassicí early Crimson. íPicturesí is dynamite, the same with íLarkísí, íThe Lettersí & íSailors Taleí are grand indeed! íEasy Moneyí & the íCourtí songs are superb renditions! There are plenty of subtle moments also on this recording that I enjoy. I need more time to digest the newer tracks. 4 days since my download. Do Crimson íneedí 3 drummers??????? It would be much more interesting percussion wise, to be at a concert no doubt, rather than listening to a recording that we can repeatedly hear over & over again & at times, become too analytical! I need more time, this is íaliení to my Crim ears!

Thanks Chet!  Looking around the web, many people seem to hear elements of KC-Fripp in Emilyís D+Evolution.

I felt sure Iíd find out that Esperanza Spalding has listened to KC.  But no!  Here is part of an interview, dated March 10, 2016 in the San Diego Tribune, in which the interviewer tries to make the connection:
Q: The opening guitar parts on your song "Good Lava" have an angular feel that reminds me of the pioneering progressive rock band King Crimson....Are you a fan of King Crimson?
A: I havenít checked them out yet. But youíre the second person today to mention them, so Iím going to.

It is almost as if the "Platonic ideal form of King Crimson" is out in the ether somewhere and 21st century schizoid musicians keep bumping into it.

OK...I gave this question a couple of weeks cause I thought smarter people than Me would answer.....Not to be.

David, The sample rate of my Toronto Flac files average about 900kbps..A CD is 1400kbps..L.A ís files avg 2500kbps. I know what i pick BUT...It has Fairy Dust sprinkled on it...

Your next question regarded Auro-3D. Auro-3D and itís main competitor ATMOS, are full range MOVIE formats....These extra channels in the sound track are sourced to that channel..

So, the odds of anything above 5.1 are slim to none


South American Tour
:: Posted by chaser on April 01, 2016


Please , let me know if we have some chance to King Crimsons shows in South America this year. In Brazil we love King Crimson

Thanks for bailing me out there, albemuth! I thought I was the only oddball hearing a clear KC/Fripp influence in the alternate "Unconditional Love" and other tracks on "Emilyís D+Evolution."


Live in Toronto
:: Posted by emory0 on March 31, 2016

Q: How do you know the Live in Toronto discs and performance rule?

A: Larkís Tongues in Aspic pt 1?

Good answer, but incorrect. The correct answer is:

A: LEVEL 5!

In comparison to the Live at the Orpheum disc, everyone seems to have settled in and are cutting loose, the drummers in particular. Thereís a sort of loose chaos that gets unleashed that is a joy to hear, punching and kicking at the formal boundaries of the song. And the solo by Mel is fantastic too, leaving me to miss Belew only a little.

Strangely, I also keep feeling like this version of Crimson has the ability to penetrate areas that were closed to the Double Trio.
