I disagree with the list on one factor: "Larkís Tongues In Aspic" should have ranked MUCH higher!
Interesting prog list
:: Posted by albemuth on March 15, 2016
Here is another news item that I missed during the fall 2015 tour, a list of "25 best progressive rock albums." Maybe you guys posted it but, if so, I missed that too.
As the author himself admits, these sorts of "rankings" do not mean much. But the reflections by Sean Murphy (who Iíve never heard of) are worth reading. It is interesting to see ITCOTCK listed as a "Rosetta Stone" of prog. Although thatís not true for me, I can understand the opinion! But I agree, without reservation, with the statement: "Fripp asked a lot of his audience, but heís always asked more of himself."
I like most of the choices. The only place I differ strongly is Rush, a band Iíve never found fun or interesting. Iím not saying that they are not great artists. Taste is a strange thing.
Well played, DGM. Well played.

But now that Iíve proven that hectoring gets results, my new request is for King Crimson to play a show in my back yard next summer. I will of course grill some hamburgers and hot dogs, and offer some local beer, and we can all play badminton. Rest assured my Amish neighbors wonít use electronic recording devices.
Thank you for the Plumpton show! I am now one step closer to full fetish-ization regarding the 1969 lineup.
ThraKaTTak and ATTAKcATTRrak Recording Sources?
:: Posted by pcontos on March 14, 2016
I posted this in November and shortly after David Singleton said in his diary that he would eventually posted the sources for Attackatrak. I donít think he has yet so Iíll ask kindly again. Also, if David, Alex or someone can help with the other compilations listed below that would be much appreciated:
Has anyone ever determined where each of the improvs come from on both of these discs? I thought that information might be in the new THRAK Box but they didnít reveal. I saw on Wiki that there was a list on ThaKaTTak but I donít know how accurate it is. David Singleton just did the video explaining how he chose the improvs and you can see some of the names of places on the computer he was working on but I donít know if that is what ended up on the final disc. Can anyone help?
Iíd also be interested in Projeckt One Jazz Cafť Suite Collectorís Club and Schizoid Improvs from Ladies of the Road.
Sunday All Over KC and The Humans
:: Posted by RickyM on March 14, 2016
Over at the Toyah Website, in her March Blog posting, some interesting news re: SAOTW as well as KC and the Humans:
"Bill Rieflin is taking 2016 off for a sabbatical. Which means, all being good, work on HUMANS 4 can resume in 2017. I am still writing in the mean time and I am spending my Birthday with Bill in Seattle in May.
Because Bill is neither with KING CRIMSON this year nor the HUMANS Robert is talking of re-releasing a live album of SUNDAY ALL OVER THE WORLD and a REMIXED version of KNEELING AT THE SHRINE because he will not record any new KC until Bill is back in action next year, this means SAOTW has his time and attention.
I doubt the release will happen this yearÖÖ.but it has gone into production as far as planning is concerned."
So, it looks like no new KC studio recordings w/o Bill R. until he returns to active status but some interesting releases coming well into 2017 nonetheless. SAOTW was such an underrated project. I heard they were fantastic live, but personally never had that good fortune to see them firsthand. Now, a potential live release - Yeah!
Hope we Yanks get to see another US KC tour in either late 2016 or at some point in 2017. Fingers crossed.

I stop reading this forum for a week or two and look what happens: Drama and excitement and I missed it. Damn.
As for Rieflin I was looking forward to him evolving within the Crimson context. Years ago I really enjoyed my only previous exposure to his playing, The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior: His playing is angular and jazzy, and I was hoping to see that ooze into Crimson as a whole. And maybe it still will if and when he returns, perhaps in time for Crimson to swing through NYC again.
Re; Keith Emerson
:: Posted by Valhalla on March 12, 2016
A lovely tribute by Sid over at Classic Rock. A sad passing indeed of one of rock musicís & not only rock music of course, greatest composers & keyboard maestros. What a sensational player & charismatic individual Emerson was. The most incredible player of his instrument, that I have ever noticed in my years on planet earth. God Bless! RIP.
R.I.P. Keith Emerson
:: Posted by fconte on March 12, 2016
We are all trying to absorb the awful news. He should always be recognized as a great composer in equal billing with his abilities as a performer.
I was thrilled to hear ELP play 21st Century Schizoid Man in Boston several years back. He and Greg also opened a show with Talk with the Wind which was rendered beautifully. Along with Larks Tongues in Aspic (I-IV) and Close to the Edge, Tarkus defined a genre. He will be missed.
God Bless Keith Emerson. Condolences to his family.

Just wanted to add a sad farewell to the great Keith Emerson. Many are heartbroken this evening.
Rieflin & Guitar Craft?
:: Posted by DevlinC on March 11, 2016
I wasnít aware Rieflin was involved in Guitar Craft in the 80s. Thereís no mention of it in his Wikipedia or his discography. He seems to appear quite by random in the Crimson patheon in 1999 with the two albums on First World Music. What was his involvement in GC?
Bill has a long association with GC both as a player and as a tutor.
