new live album
:: Posted by clarkdacksman on November 21, 2014
Dear Mr.Fripp -
Been listening almost 45 years. I appreciate your keeping the band alive for us fans through all these years despite whatever circumstances it has come and gone. The show in New York was great. 40 minutes? I agree with others who have either implied or flat out have said they donít get it. You have the ability to provide us a complete show yet you CHOOSE not to. It is your product & who am I to judge. When I have met you you have been gracious & polite. I agree with your wife in the interviews she did with you; we are there to see you play your music and enjoy what you do. Is it just a tease so there can be further full concert releases as KCC releases? I can only hope the new studio album will be in the same league of enjoyment as previous efforts. I have all of your music with Crimson,most of your solo, collaboration projects and you as a sideman. Scarcity of Miracles was the only thing you have ever done that left me going íWTFí. I understand you following your muse. King Crimson has provided a vehicle for you to continue the things you do. I will always enjoy when I hear your guitar playing burn through whatever you play on. Please remember what you wrote about the aim of DGM.
I wish you the best.

Has DGMLive given up on downloads?
Sid wrote "It will be a physical release. "
This is without doubt a step backward.
I have been over the years a strong supporter of DGMLive downloads. I have bought a large share them. I loved the idea of supporting artists directly and having the opportunity to listen instantly to whole concert with the good and the bad. Admittedly, mostly the good in the case of KC.
I find it difficult to be upbeat with mail order CDs with the delay (generally at least a month in my location) and the shipping costs.
I am sorry guys, but a 40 minutes CD of various concerts reminds me of Pink Floyd recent Dark Side of the Moon release of November 16, 1974 gigs (second CD of DSOTM-Experience Edition) without the encore which was Echoes. Very disappointing.
Having said that, I understand that DGMLive is in its own right to do what ever seems appropriate.
RIP Diaries... ?

Amidst all the speculation, praise, and condemnation concerning the upcoming live album (to which all I can say "Hooray!" - I canít wait for January), I must express my disappointment at the apparent death (?) of the online Diaries.
Iíve been reading RFís daily-ish missives for around fifteen years, and the insights and experiences shared in them - on KC, GC/OCG, the harsh reality of life in the trenches of the music business, the charming rituals of life in the West Midlands, of toothsome sweets and, of course, white rabbits - are, Iím fairly certain, unprecedented from an artist of RFís stature.
So I canít help but feel a twinge of sadness that that time appears to have come to an end. For me, and I expect many others, it feels like the end of an era; if so, much thanks and gratitude for letting us into your life.

Continuing listening through KC 72-74
THIS is marvellous, unbelievable, miraculous.
All of you did an outstanding job to make this happen.
Everybody should buy this - it is a lot of money but worth every penny.

As a re-hash of a1956 lost but found gem of BBC Hancocks Half-Hour on R4 plays in the background heres some morsels to share.
I have met very few people who enjoyed The HMC, nevermind to many unlistenable, Swastika Girls. I enjoy them still.
My father was lost to the eternal ether nearly 30years ago but he would have heard this comedy at the time. So a link over the illusion of time is made. He also had a very irritating habit of humming, perhaps throat singing, in a manner that...... (íoh turn that rubbish off!í - Hancocks just said - another clichť from my youth)........... was not unlike HMC, but no mechanical loops. It could be interminable. He created a cellar room not unlike Frippís basement dwelling. Dadís hum would permeate 3 floors up to the attic where our music cacophoned its beat and loudness. His sound illustrated warmth, contentedness in his moment of ímessingí with personal interests; his books, archiving and work as an engineer. He would pick up a random theme run with it entering a world of unaffected, unashamed but obvious ease and calm. We missed this so much, but its ace to remember and be reminded. So getting a handle on what Fripp&Eno did with this album after some close introspection and revelation years later hold dear to me.
(íI donít think you understand the seriousness of this larkí Hancocks just said......well I never.)

>I will be waiting for full show downloads and passing on this.
Without wishing to set off a frenzy of pointless speculation, Itís not carved in stone that there will be full show downloads. Iíd advise anyone interested in the band to buy this release and help support the new line-up*. That in itself will make future projects more viable.
(* Bear in mind thereís no big record label grabbing all the income - with this company, the musicians get an equal share.)

Excellent news indeed, Iíll take it & this íliveí recording will be much appreciated. It will be just like the old days of lp, 40 minutes is plenty as an entree.

The fact that Mr. Fripp even put himself through yet another tour is remarkable and MUCH appreciated by a lot of us. I was at both Los Angeles Orpheum concerts, and they were beyond good, both musically and emotionally. Everyone there seemed to be feeling very deep emotions of joy (about the music) and sorrow (at the fleeting aspect of time). Many of the attendees (myself included) had been to the KC L.A. concert of 1974, and we were all very aware that we would most likely not be getting together again like this 40 years from now.
One extra bright spot on Oct. 30 was that Rachel Flowers and her mother were there. I am fortunate enough to have them consider me a friend. For those that know, ínuff said. For others, remember that name. In that young womanís hands is the future of music. Iíve been privy to some of her recent recordings and work. Having been a musician in and around the biz for nearly 51 years now, I can say without hesitation that she is the greatest musician alive on earth. Several people came up to her before and after the show, tears in their eyes, just to say "thank you" and shake her hand. When you hear her play, youíll know why.
So...looking forward to the new album. Thanks again to Mr. Fripp and the Crims. Your work is appreciated more than you know.
New live album

Thrilled to see an announcement about a live album, but 40 minutes? It could be twice that length and still fit on one CD. I was hoping for a great retrospective featuring the best version of every piece they performed on tour...guess Iíll wait for the rerereremaster in 40 years. :) Just kidding, but I will be waiting for full show downloads and passing on this. Canít wait for new material by this lineup!

Thank you Mr. Fripp. Anyone who adresses you with less respect is not a real fan.
