Does anyone out there have opinions on "must have" shows from any KC era that can be downloaded from DGM Live? I have a handful and Iíd like to get more but the selection available is overwhelming! I have checked out comments and audio clips here and there but it would be great to hear peopleís views on top shows. Thanks!

"...I donít think the problem is so much the mix, but his tendency to simply double..."
Having seen Trey play many times with Crimson and with the Trey Gunn band, I strongly disagree. I always felt that Trey Gunn had a "small footprint" in that his playing is incredible, but it doesnít try to draw a lot of attention to itself. If one concentrates on what Trey is playing however, itís usually mindboggling and extremely tasteful. He is in the best sense of the word a "supporting player" and works entirely in service to the music. Iím sure the surround mixes in the forthcoming Thrak Box will allow his contribution to be heard far more easily.

I am very grateful for the Bootleg Footage containing KC at Munich and incorporating the track Improv: Munchen,, I have listened to this track so many times, to see it being played live shows a band finding a special moment when the notes take over and make a one off special piece of music. Robert Frippís playing is outstanding and seems to be on fire, and the band drives the pulse along with ease and enjoyment.
It may not be the best quality film but I would still love to be able to purchase such footage. Including the footage in alignment with Heavy Construkction and incorporating it into a TCOL Box set would be most appropriate (at least for us fans).
I have two versions of Heavy Construkction, DGM0013 and PCCY-80001 (Japanese) both are identical except for some print on the rear literature. Sadly the Japanese edition is in a jewel case and not card.
thank you DGM Live

Iíve read more than one comment here concerning Trey Gunnís seemingly minimal contribution to the Thrak-era Crimson. I donít think the problem is so much the mix, but his tendency to simply double one of the other three string-playerís parts. But surely he makes up for it visually, with that epic pony tail and Seinfeld-esque puffy shirt...
Hope to hear Trey!

Just dusted off my copy of Deja Vrooom, and I must say poor Trey Gunn is largely inaudible throughout the show. It almost seems his venerable Warr guitar is unplugged. Hereís hoping the Thrak box concert videos have his sound way up!

Note to David S and DGM Team
This really is great! I love it! Finally you have had the best idea how to use the stuff (which is not perfect for DVD presentation) and broadcast it on Youtube.
A very nice substitute for the deleted GOLD STANDARD live box Heavy ConstruKction, which we are currently raving about on the FB KC blog. I like very much your subtlety to release the footage in a manner that correlates to the picks on the live box - which are the best of the best.
This is the perfect use of YT as a try and taste area. And a true representation of one of the powerful incarnations of the Crimson King.
Best regards and with full support

If filming at least one, or two shows (to cover the whole repertoire) is not an option, and I understand it isnít... perhaps I even understand why... then would it be such a bad idea to film the upcoming rehearsals, with just one HD camera, at enough distance, that covers all seven musicians, to compile into a nice DVD/blueray some years after this cycle has been completed?
I know it will never capture the experience of witnessing the second Utrecht show with my son and brother and a few friends (which was unforgettable and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that) but how are we going to explain to our grandchildren in 25 years how incredible this band was if they canít show them what we saw?

After hearing some of the rehearsal recordings from the Islands lineup, I wondered if there are others from other line ups in the vault? Did the 69 band record any of itís rehearsals? Are there rehearsal tapes of the Lizard band? If there are, will any be released via DGM?
Games Without Words
:: Posted by PPmINTY on October 07, 2015
In the early í80s, there was a widely distributed bootleg called "Games Without Words", containing the demos and íworks in progressí recordings of songs for Peter Gabrielís second and third albums. Many of the demo tracks have subsequently appeared as MP3s, via Gabrielís own website and elsewhere, as "The Ashcombe Works Demos".
Most of these demo sessions clearly feature Robertís guitar.
The demos were mainly instrumental versions, but some featured ígabrieleseí guide vocals.
By the time they appeared in ífinishedí form on the album[s], some of the songs had been completely re-recorded, while others used the ídemoí tracks as a starting point and then embellished them with further overdubs (and, of course, the finished vocals). The latter are generally the tracks that retained Robertís guitar parts.
In the case of "Games Without Frontiers", I donít think the original track was used for the album. It has a completely different feel. It may be that Gabriel played David Rhodes the original demo (having Frippís contributions) and asked him to play something in the íspirití of the demo version but more in keeping with the new tempo.
Iím just guessing.

I too had accredited the guitar work on "Games without frontiers" to Robert, turns out to be David Rhodes, long time guitarist with PGís band.
