So always loves were the riff and the notes of Mr. Fripp, how to play guitar is personal, itís like an addiction of hearing these riffs and those notes, Robert Fripp is unique, with guitar, I would be happy listening to a new album of King Crimson, or Robert Fripp Original, Robert thanks for everything.
Trust in Jesus.

I have been longing for these releases on CD for more than ten years, and am very happily looking forward for the last mile to a release in 201x!!!
2*3 improv noodling

Dan, it is good to have you back again here writing. I concur that a good number of double trio improvisations went nowhere. But free and spontaneous improvisation does not work every evening. Especially the more silent or reticent improvs provide joy and excitement. The loud ones with 6 blokes banging around are frequently some sort of boring.

I couldnít disagree more. I think the 90ís Crimson was the perfect melding of the 70ís power and the 80ís intricacy. Once both Bruford and Levin departed, the band were left with a weak rhythm section (i.e., "under utilized talent" ), and for me, both on record and live, became very cold and detached. I would also submit that the more musicians in a band, the more difficult it is to collectively improvise.
And my 3 cents makes a nickle.

Also in PROG magazine, is featured a man many of us know. Sean Tonar who has devoted much of his lifes work to the music we all know and love.
He and his bandmates from "Story of a life" are featured in PROG magazine this month. But many of us know Sean as the creator of the comprehensive progressive rock website progressiveears.org of which I have been a member for almost 20 years off and on.
Sean has promoted big names like King Crimson, YES, Genesis, etc... But also many new and smaller acts on his heavily trafficked website. I would venture to say that many popular bands have been MADE there. I was very happy to see this guy who lives and breathes music featured in PROG magazine. He certainly deserves it.
I hope Iím not embarrassing him here. I have never actually met Sean, except for the many online conversations, knowledge of his beginnings, and his facebook friendship.... Congratulations!

Good luck with your "V Factor" project, the quest to find new vocal talent for the next, long awaited instalment(s) of "The Vicar Songbook".
Youíll be relieved to know that I wonít be subjecting you to my own feeble singing efforts.
I certainly donít envy David (or Punk?) having to sit through hour after hour of "The Vicar Songbook #1" rendered as bad karaoke through the medium of cheap telephone apps, before you finally hear THE ONE that has that certain ísomethingí.
I agree with the Gussetbook poster who suggested that it might be nice to hear some of these songs with a female vocal for a change.
If nothing else, I was fascinated to hear the "Songbook #1" numbers as instrumentals (give or take the occasional íleakingí guide vocal). Having lived and grown quite familiar with these tunes, first as "Hot Tickles" MP3s (either with or without Stormyís DJ patter), then finally on a íproperí CD/DVD release, it was interesting to listen to them from yet another perspective. In particular, "Childhood Days" and "Count Your Blessings" sound rather delightful ías isí.
(By the way, the sound file for "That Boyís Not Cool" is corrupted. It either didnít download or didnít play when it did!)
RE the Double Trio Improvs...

I am one who ThrakAttack did not resonate with. One problem is that instead of going somewhere with the improv, it came out as noodling between powerful beginnings (BíBoom/Thrak) and ending Thrak finish. Limp.
A common characteristic of both the Wetton/Bruford band and the Trey/Pat bands are that they were going somewhere with what they were creating. Whether it was a groove or a free form improv, they had a start, change and stop. The double trio noodled during the improv. No group going somewhere and doing something as a group unit.
Itís really too bad because of the under utilized talent with that line up, to me, it turned out to be the least successful Crim.
My 2 cents worth.
who is King Crimson?

Gosh I always thought "King Crimson" was a nickname for Satan? Everyone in my coven agrees;-)

When I first listened to Twenty-Two, by the Vicar, I thought somehow another YouTube window on my PC was playing Penguin Cafe Orchestraís Scherzo and Trio, from the Union Cafe...
