Congratulations to Vreeken Mark & Singleton David and band for a job well done.
Solicitation for a smooth sabbatical for Rieflin Bill.

In the Google dialect of Haitian, ’y plisman’ means ’and folding’. Could it be that the Vicar is actually Nigel Tufnel?

See you in September.

... and hearty handshake to you good folks at DGM who are responsible for the latest download, and pretty much everything else you’ve made available. I’m enjoying this Toronto show; while there is a tad bit of distortion in the highs, overall it sounds gigantic on my home theater setup.

I seem to recall Mr. Fripp stating, back in the day, that any given lineup of King Crimson seems to struggle a bit with material from previous lineups. (Am I remembering that correctly?) However it sounds like the current lineup has overcome that bugaboo. The arrangements of the older songs are fantastic, and the new material fits in nicely; familiar yet fresh.

Oh, and I’ll repeat my yearly request for a download of the Plumpton show from 1969. I have the rest of the Epitaph set and would very much like to hear this one.

Thanks!
Harry

You’re surprised at the inner circle of DGM being offended at your slagging of an RF associate who’s worked with him longer (in chronological terms) than Pat, Jakko & Gavin, for instance? Good work DannyX!

Me too! Maybe we should get together and compare "notes"

And thank you, Sid, for the clarification that my suspicions were well founded.

"I suppose countless Guitar Craft-related activities since the late ’80s and albums such as Ten Seconds (released on the old DGM record label in 1996), Birth Of A Giant and The Repercussions Of Angelic Behaviour albums both released in 1999, and of course the Slow Music album in 2005 and the numerous Slow Music gigs directed by Bill in 2006 and a live downloads along the way, don’t count as much as a connection? "

As I stated in my initial post, "other than his previous work with RF". Perhaps I should have said, "as direct a connection to Crimson-proper as the rest of the band", although I suspect that would have been misinterpreted as well, as some people seemed determined to take offense at what was an innocuous observation.

Thanks for the clarification, Danny. I just wanted to be sure that "countless Guitar Craft-related activities since the late ’80s and albums such as Ten Seconds (released on the old DGM record label in 1996), Birth Of A Giant and The Repercussions Of Angelic Behaviour albums both released in 1999, and of course the Slow Music album in 2005 and the numerous Slow Music gigs directed by Bill in 2006..." have no bearing in the matter as far as your concerned.

Connections
:: Posted by DannyX on March 10, 2016

"...while DannyX asserts that Bill seems “the least connected to Crimson”. Based on what intimate knowledge of Crimson exactly?"

’Connected’, through a previous incarnation of KC and/or ProjeKct.

"When Robert said that King Crimson had to be these exact seven musicians, did people imagine that he was making it up?"

Yes.
I suppose countless Guitar Craft-related activities since the late ’80s and albums such as Ten Seconds (released on the old DGM record label in 1996), Birth Of A Giant and The Repercussions Of Angelic Behaviour albums both released in 1999, and of course the Slow Music album in 2005 and the numerous Slow Music gigs  directed by Bill in 2006 and a live downloads along the way, don’t count as much as a connection?

the beauty of Bill
:: Posted by sandy_mccune on March 10, 2016

I’m sorry to hear that Bill requires a little time away from Krimson. I attended the two shows in Manchester last year with ten friends, most of whom are musicians, three of us drummers. For anyone to suggest that Bill is  “the least connected to Crimson”  couldn’t have experienced the same level of commitment and musicianship that we did, during those nights in Manchester.

Obviously we were wondering how the hell three drummers could possibly work!?? Well once Larks tongues was in full flight it all became as clear and a sharp as a diamond. I loved the way the three percussive personalities came across. Gavin the technician, Pat the hitter with the technology at his fingertips and Bill with such restraint, economy, style and humour. Beautiful to watch, a conundrum of grace and power. I was, as was everyone else, mesmerised. In fact, we all agreed that Bill Reflin was the revelation of this new crimson line up. He just has a beautifully relaxed and nonchalant style that underpinned everything that he did. I don’t think it’s a case of Bill being ‘connected’ to King Crimson. I believe king crimson was already connected to Bill, isn’t this how it works?


Chill out guys
:: Posted by JBeerLTIA on March 10, 2016

Bill’s sabbatical is one of necessity. As you all know, Robert’s deal with the Good Fairy was a two way street. In exchange for generous offerings from the Muse, each time KC returns one of the drummers must travel by foot to the Andes mountains. It is here they face Arrog, the immortal polka dotted dragon. It’s a shame it has to be this way, because I thought Andy McCullough was a damn fine drummer. Anyway, he’s gotta train, because if he loses we get 10 more years of Barry Mantilow.

Reading that made me think of how much I miss the Diary!  I don’t feel ’owed’ or anything like that, but The Diary was a nice bit of calm and balance added to my day.  So thank you for today’s posting.
