"When and where can I place a pre-order for one copy of the limited, numbered, signed-by-the-author, edition of this magnificent and hefty tome, Oh Wise One?"
I’ve actually been wondering whether The Guitar Circle book would (also) be printed in a lasting hardcover edition with acid-free paper. Numbered? Signed? Nice but (in my mind) optional. But something solid that won’t fall apart in a short amount of time.

TRTR...so much to absorb
:: Posted by StarlessBibleBlack on November 04, 2013
Gosh...I wouldn’t blame for the lack of reviews out there: We are talking about 21 cds of material to absorb!
That said, I’ve never been this excited to hear the different nuances with each live reading/playing of tunes like Fracture and Talking Drum. We’re talking about an effective and vicious approach here, especially with TD, just played fast and menacing.
There’s an interview with RF saying that he was left unsatisfactory with most studio releases, and with this boxset, it is of no mystery. E-Z Money sounded lacking on TGD personally, but most live renditions here have enough variations here to keep it more than interesting: John keeps things steady with his vocals, while Billy and Bob run along with their interweaving lines just to throw you off rhythmically.
I could write more about it, but again, like most other satisfied buyers, we’re too busy listening to this piece of work. My only gripes about it is the exclusion of the European tours (in particular the German gigs!) Ah well... Thank you Amy W. + Crew for sending me this valuable piece of musical history!
Happy Punter's Flickr Review RTR

> You don’t see too many album reviews on Flickr but here’s a take on TRTR on the photo-blogging site from a happy punter.
The Happy Punter here is Stephen Iliffe who has published a pretty well written biography on Hans-Joachim Roedelius (one of the true German greats, whose achievements can be summarized with the following three words: Kluster/Cluster/Qluster & Harmonia , ambient originator, Klangbild ). Getting acquainted with the portfolio of Roedelius makes it easier to understand how Mr. Eno came to his ambient pathway.
Painting with Sound: The Life and Music of Hans-Joachim Roedelius by Stephen Iliffe. Foreword by Brian Eno - Meridian Music Guides 2003. ISBN 0-9545995-0-0
This biography appears to be out-of-print (but can still be fetched from Amazon ). It appears that Mr. Iliffe has uploaded his reviews of the Roedelius albums on Flickr: namely here.
A fast browse through his albums/sets on his Flickr account shows he also paid homage to Travis and Fripp.. here. Fair enough!

Mr Robert Fripp has very kindly answered my question about his book.
Thank you for taking time to publish it.

"i have no passion for any aspect of my professional life!
one word to characterise it: wretched."
Why then does Robert pursue it? Why resurrect KC once more?
Is it borne like a hairshirt, a cilice; a manifestation of his convenant, his bargain with the KC fairy? When she alights is this the price to be paid?
Surely, there must be some pleasure to be found: some pros to outweigh the cons.
Something to put a smile on the old goats chops.

LTIA keep that one Nick
:: Posted by rocketmancs on November 02, 2013
Given than many of us have bought/dowloaded significant chunks of the LTIA 40th box set (and several versions of LTIA ..), what are the prospects that an individual pressed CD of "Keep that one Nick" might be released at some date .. please?
Heaven forbid that we might dl a rip of this CD somewhere .. poor show.

I think Borges said it best:
There are no moral or intellectual merits. Homer composed the Odyssey; if we postulate an infinite period of time, with infinite circumstances and changes, the impossible thing is not to compose the Odyssey, at least once.
-- "The Immortal"
(My) moral for the story: be weary of the infinite.

@DannyX: If an infinite number of monkeys could compose an infinite number of distinct takes of “Moonchild” and “Groon”, I would be infinitely grateful.
