Does anyone else think that Robertís wifeís voice and sisterís voice are uncannily alike?

That in-situ photo of the Starless box is great: Note not only a tube amp but a tubed CD player. Tubes, of course, boost the even harmonics of the audio signal, causing the music to sound a lot warmer and more pleasing. Of course, from a pure measurement standpoint tube amps (and Single Ended triode tube amps in particular) measure pretty high from an harmonic distortion perspective, and yet I know of no one who has spent time with tubes that doesnít prefer their sound to plain old solid state amps, even those that are theoretically perfect from a measurement standpoint.

(Iíve even heard the enormous Wilson Alexandria speakers driven by 8 watt triode tubes, and that was a very interesting experience.)

Not sure about other US vs Europe performances from other periods, but I have to agree that the golden period (October 1973 - April 1974) of the Golden Period (late October 1972 - July 1974) in KC history is indeed these very fine European performances. The band seem to be comfortable enough to play the challenging new repertoire and are often adventurous and focused in the improvs, while still seeming to enjoy performing, whereas the ílateí 1974 US performances find a band pretty confident technically but slightly lacking something present just a few months before.

Tickles redux

Sid - Iím not such a cheap bastard. Iíve bought the three Wetton/Bruford era box sets plus every studio recording of the beast as well as a good number of KCCC and DGMCC discs. Iím spoiled. I want my frequent KC tickle (sing to "I want my MTV").

I also want a full concert of the newest Crim. Greedy bastard, not cheap bastard.

KC sampling
:: Posted by stevenrbrownlee on December 09, 2014

Perhaps this is old hat but, is Mr. Fripp aware that Kanye West sampled 21st Century Schizoid Man and performed it live on SNL in 2013 or 2014.

I would like to believe that Mr. Fripp would never allow this. Please tell me that this was used without permission.

Iím sure everyone will agree that society does not need to believe that Con-yay had anything to do with the creation of 21stCSM.

If Robert approved this, then I no longer have any hope for humanity.


Starless box - wow!!
:: Posted by WhiskeyVengeance on December 09, 2014

I think this is bar-none the best of the mega box-sets DGM has put out thus far. I always thought Crimson were way more interesting when they played in Europe vs. the U.S., and the setlists were way more improv-heavy to boot. The audio quality, physical curios and booklet also set new benchmarks for music box sets, and I look forward to more of these in the future!

I did have two minor questions/concerns with the set that maybe Sid or somebody at DGM can clarify for me:

1. In the liner notes itís mentioned that the only mix available of the Glasgow performance of "The Night Watch" has the Zurich solo edited in, and as such thatís how itís presented on the box. But, the DGM Live download of Glasgow apparently has the entire performance without the Zurich edit. Will there be some way for fans who bought the box to get the unedited version of that particular song in the near future?

2. The S&BB 40th edition had a great upgrade of "Guts on My Side" from the Udine show, with two audience sources mixed together. The sound quality is much better than the DGM Live download and had me excited that an upgrade of the whole show would be released someday. The Starless box appears to have the same source as the download, so what happened to the other sources used to create the Guts mix on S&BB 40th edition? Did the DGM team only have additional sources for that one song?

Anyway, thanks again for such great, fan-pleasing work, and thanks for bearing with our anorak fanboy inqueries!

Waiting for the other tickle to drop :^o

Adrian Belew's DUST and Concert
:: Posted by Tatala on December 09, 2014

The track list for Adrian Belewís DUST:

1. Intro to Something 2. What Do You Know 3. Happy Guy (1989) 4. One Time (personal demo) 5. Hawaiian Cowboys(1990) 6. Big Blue Sun (remix) 7. Pygmies(1981) 8. Neptune Pool (1989) 9. Shoe Salesman (1990 - composed in 1972) 10. Superboy (1985) 11. Still Life with Dobro (1986) 12. Neurotica (vocals only) 13. Duck Funk Symphony (1994) 14. Antarctica (1983) 15. Peas (1979) 16. Postcard from Holland (demo) 17. Collage for "Girl With Clouds"

I saw Adrian Belew perform in Big Bear a few weeks ago and, as always, left the theater with a smile on my face. I drove up for the weekend with my nephew, went for a spectacular hike high into the mountains, and attended the show that same night. Wonderful time!

Adrian played an energetic set and spent considerable time afterwards signing autographs and talking with fans.

The concert set attempted to capture the spirit and flow of Flux, with numerous songs from throughout his entire career, often blending together, rarely in their entireties, and frequently interrupted by unusual sound bites. On one hand, it was an interesting experiment, played with insane energy and focus, that allowed audience members to hear at least parts of nearly 30 songs spanning close to 35 years of material. On the other hand, I personally prefer hearing the whole songs, and my favorite moments were the rare occasions when the band really stretched out on pieces like "Beat Box Guitar". Perhaps one or two Flux-like medleys mixed with more full songs and jams would have suited me better, but I have no complaints. Again, it is always a pleasure seeing Adrian perform live, and this latest concert was no exception. The whole weekend was a wonderful experience!

Sid: "Itís tickle time when itís tickle time and not a moment before."

And thus my nightmares begin.
