History Of Rock n' Roll
:: Posted by froggy55 on March 04, 2016

Donít know if this has been discussed before, but has anyone seen a DVD boxset of "The History Of Rock ní Roll". Thereís an episode on the seventies, and Brian Eno is being interviewed, and it clearly shows a photo of Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, & Bowie together, and the dvd addresses RF as Tony Visconti! lol Shows how out of touch the American music industry really is!

Semi-lukewarm inquiry:

Did the experience / education received in the stereo re-imagining of Thrak directly inform the stereo mixing process of the 7-headed beast on "....Toronto"?

I ask (selfishly of course) because while the re-imagined Thrak contains audio delicacies not previously available to these ears, the ísacrificeí so to speak was a certain weight or heaviness that the new stereo field tampers. The beauty here is that for whichever Thrak mood i am in, I have both to choose from.

However, "....Orpheum" did not convey to these ears the sheer weight of the 3 shows I saw on that Tour and while i viddyed these shows in my mindís eye, I was hoping (selfishly again) to have an audio document, similar to Bboom/Cirkus or Elektrik, that reflects (but never duplicate) the experience I attended.

So hope is slightly irrational, and perhaps the official bootleg designation of "...Toronto" conveys a more raw interpretation of the source material. I will be buying it because i long ago ceded control of my funds to the RHVL and like I said, I hope.

So did i actually ask a question; likely not. But the information would still be interesting to know.
All the best,

Well I never.

The Toronto boot might just be my favourite live Crim recording ever (and I do have a few!). Whoever mixed this deserves gold stars - very clear and yet absolutely thumping. Bravo chaps :-)

Celebrating KC Footage

"All we have to do now is watch all the footage and decide which bits to use."

I would ask for the dancing from Edinburghís second night make an appearance, if only as an extra or easter egg. Such a wonderful moment deserves to be immortalised.


Hands up to volunteers.....

Thanks for the info David, bootleg TV style is indeed unnoticeable! Do you require any volunteers to watch all the footage? Although I fear I might be as helpful to you as Will the intern watching all the Top Gear footage in W1A.....

Being a first time user with the whole bit torrent thing, I found it to be a bit of a headache but totally worth it. After about 45 minutes I had my 2 CDs burned and in the player. What a treat! So glad this was made available. The addition of Melís horns on RED really worked out so well. The 3 drum rhumba is genius. Jakko is great! Melodic bass is recorded so clearly... Next best thing to being there! Nothing but praise and pride here. Please do continue!

Hang on a minute.....

Did I hear this correctly? Full concert video you say? Do my ears deceive me? I couldíve sworn they said no concerts were being filmed!?
The band filmed all the shows BootlegTV style - as with the song PEACE from Osaka that was posted on Youtube at Xmas. Carefully done in such a way that it didnít intrude on the performance.
So yes, a complete video coming your way this autumn. All we have to do now is watch all the footage and decide which bits to use.

Ladies of the Road go VROOOM!
:: Posted by DrDick on March 03, 2016

Iíve spent the last few days loving every minute of the new Toronto download, reliving memories of probably the best concert Iíve been to (first night at the Lowry). It is so good to hear in such clarity all that was going on from the musicians. The live experience really was outstanding but the live recording brings that totally immersive experience into a new and equally exciting clarity. Whilst Iím loving all the new versions of the classics I must say the thing that really made me smile is Melís sax on VROOOM, a real throwback to the Ladies of the Road era and yet making VROOOM something entirely new!

Crimson - Toronto (2015)

Loving that íAll You Need is Loveí quote by Mel Collins at the end of Larks Tongues In Aspic Part 1. It provides a great contrast.

Being able to buy the download still isnít working for me.
