Just a brief note to say thank you for 45 years of friendship through music. Iíve had King Crimson in my heart and soul through trying times to the most joyous moments. Something I can always count on. The Road to Red is wonderful but still there are other recordings probably out there yet to be heard. Always something to anticipate from 1973-74. My dream CD would be one of solely Easy Money recordings. For me, that is the most interesting piece of music to hear the so many exciting changes Robert brought to every performance of that piece. A seemingly telltale sign of Robertís mood for the evening. Just my personal preference...... The Fall of 2014 awaits!

If I had a dime for every 40-year old tape that has surfaced in the last few years from a better (lower-gen) source, or for every fresh transfer from an old tape...or for every previously unknown recording that has sat in a basement or a garage for 40 years, only to emerge after someone saw the excitement on a forum for other tapes from the same artist of similar vintage...
Excluding a band from this type of forum is totally understandable, but the fact that many old-school traders (and tapers) just donít bother messing with tapes for "not allowed" bands is worth noting and may prevent tapes like the Shrine Auditorium from being put in the hands of the best audio-restoration team on the planet.
re: Search Function

Found my own answer: Google search. Found everything I was looking for on the dgmlive site.

I agree. In the meantime, you can always find it by googling:
"Vol. 5" site:dgmlive.com.
I do it all the time. Well, nearly.

I would love to see a more robust search function. Try finding the download featuring Mike Keneally or any of the íStormy Monday Selectionsí volumes - it ainít easy. I just realized there is a Volume 5, and canít find it.

Whil Bad Co. had enough support from the demise of Free and Mott the Hoople, they certainly couldíve managed without a King Crimson bass player. Although the notes in R2R reveal that they wanted John Wetton suggests that they were looking in the same place!
Not a fan of Foreigner here, but donít mind a few of their tunes on the radio. However, itís my understanding that Ian McDonald was a rather important part of their first few albums. Somebody else might be better-able to comment.

...from the "wild adventures in NightWorld" - Edition 21-22 December 2013:: Presaging the smoking-related death of little brother Phil? Anticipating a visit from, amongst others, Suzie? Elucidating and expounding upon the "two exceptionally high towers" of music that are Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, the oeuvre from whom was indeed "heard and adopted by others", in this case respectively (in both directions), the brothers Everly, elevated via silk ropes by consumers of the same? Fretting the duelling of concerns of the road musician: being carried along a highway (to the gig) and (from the stage) approaching a bridge that, when things are aligned just right, might lead into the sky? All we have to do is dream.
To the drive to 2014.

Erm, no. To suggest that Foreigner and Bad Company only came into existence because of/due to the availability of Ian McDonald and the irrepressible Boz is silly. Neither of these gentlemen were the moving force behind the creation of the two bands. Their input and the sensibilities they brought to their respective groups is of course indisputable, but Foreigner and Bad Company would have been there regardless. Asia on the other hand was largely due to John Wetton, so spot on there. Iím surprised that you omitted ELP. Greg Lake, in spite of his uncontrollable ego (or because of . . ?), profoundly impacted that critter. Interesting to imagine the sound of, say, Emerson, Scooter, & Palmer . . . Cheers!
KC: the Gateway to Megastardom

But for KC, the world never be fortunate to experience the magical wonders of Foreigner, Bad Company AND Asia. No KC, no Foreigner, Bad Company, or Asia. Itís as simple at that. :) So, if you ever get tired of listening to the Larks box or the Red Box or Projects Box or, for that matter, any other kind of profoundly experimental and/or uncompromising music that shares the same spirit as KC, simply turn on the radio and imagine an entirely different world at your disposal. When you, you know, feel like makiní love, you dirty white boy. Simply turn o the radio. Itís like 1978 never left us. Of, alternatively, you may find yourself in í82. :)
