not the crimson track...the t v series now on itv 3
this ran for 372 episodes and often features king crimson music in itís story lines....is there a story here..perhaps
Sid knows ?
I've been told that recently screened episodes of the vintage UK cop drama set in the late '60s/early '70s have included snippets of Court and Epitaph as part of their time/place setting soundtrack.
Rehearsals & Blows...
:: Posted by DanAnderson on April 11, 2016
I just received KCCC 42 Rehearsals & Blows. Nice snapshot of what the boys were up to in the midst of the usual KC angst. There were several of the tunes Iíd heard before on a "recording of indeterminate origin." It was nice to hear clean versions of them. As much as I like the finished products, listening to the works in progress is quite a treat in itself. As usual BB and TL are great.
Hmmmmmmm...a disc like this of the current line up...Hmmmmmmm...just a thought.

two thoughts . . . well many, many, more but these two only for now.
1) thankyou mr. collins for referencing moe koffmanís "swinging shepherd blues" ... i wonder if you referenced a local flautist hero/heroine at each gig?
2. this music is astonishing, beautiful, intimidating!
this band has no need for modesty.
amlehn-fripp-jeanrenaud / recording / Gnawa
:: Posted by emory0 on April 11, 2016
Yeah, I wish there was a disc of that commercially available somewhere. This "downloading" business doesnít interface too well with my stereo, and even when it does Iím always afraid some software upgrade or format change will render these immaterial files nil.
As for Fripp working with Joan Jeanrenaud, for a long time Iíve thought that Frippís Fripperscapes often had the wrong audience (predominantly Crimson and/or rock fans) and that BAM or Barbican would be a much better venue (and in which I have seen almost no photography, though with one really annoying exception that I personally stomped out!)
Speaking of which, on Saturday night I attended a Moroccan Gnawa ceremony (seems a far better words than performance) at a Sufi mosque downtown (NYC). The announcement was made that photography and recording were not allowed (to some moans), but people complied and it was a wild, wonderful night (started around 8:30 and went past midnight, by the way). The musicians were facilitators of what was a tribal/communal experience that offered an opening to all who wanted to enter in, and I have zero doubt that the lack-of-recording had everything to do with this (though video was taken by folks whose job it was to do so). Some folks danced, including women (some Muslim), and those who came up were draped in a blue or white shawl. Incense was burned and food was passed out once or twice. This was music you could EAT, a veritable communion, that became part of you and tied you to others and to the event in a deep way.

amlehn-fripp-jeanrenaud-scapes are really very nice to hear and I would buy it as CD immediatly, but I canít find it.

I just found out about these last week (https://soundcloud.com/amlehn-fripp-jeanrenaud). Does anybody know if these are available commercially? The Fripp/Jeanrenaud combination is really unique.
KC Tour box 2014 question
:: Posted by Royston on April 10, 2016
I think logan74 is spot on here.
To use a technical term, the Asbury Park Schizoid Man has more twiddly bits than the Providence version. And the 2014 tour box set version definitely has the Asbury Park twiddly bits.

Youíre welcome, pcpaki. Glad to be of help.
KC Tour box 2014 question
:: Posted by logan74 on April 09, 2016
On the packaging of the 2014 tour box set, 21st Century Schizoid Man is listed as being from Providence RI. Is that correct? Because it sounds like that track is taken from Asbury park.

This does in fact appear to be the case. I had purchased the ITWOP 180-gram reissue, which came with the download of the pink Island label press rip, and the differences were especially noticeable on The Devilís Triangle. This also appears to be the case with the Atlantic label copies of the album.
