tonight in Philadelphia
:: Posted by crimsonkng on September 13, 2014
When I got into the car after the concert, I spoke into my phone. Speech-to-text did the rest. Hereís my stream of consciousness with minor editing.
The Crim beast was unleashed tonight I never expected them to play half of the songs that they did. I never thought that back in the early 70s as a teenager that 40 some years later I would be witnessing this performance - this magnificent performance. it was not a concert it was a performance. the audience was extremely respectful and quiet until the last night of the song and quiet before the next note of the song began. Gavin Harrison was amazing and seems to lead the band, to keep the band together. this concert was everything I expected it to be and more. thank you Robert for putting together such a fabulous group of musicians to play my favorite music. Iíve been to a lot of concerts including lots of Crimson various projects and lots of progressive rock and this ranks up there among the best. I wonít give away the song list and Iím glad that I didnít look at the song list from Albany because I enjoyed being surprised. I feel very privileged to have witnessed it.

Pictures of a City was played by the TOAPP lineup on this date?? Can we expect a CC release of this? Have any Guestbookers out there ever heard this version?

"King Crimson November 2nd, 2000 at the Modjeska in Milwaukee
King Crimson March 16th, 2003 at the Modjeska in Milwaukee"
I attended both performances and vouch for their wonderfulness. Both are up there on my wish list, also.
Along these lines, thank you for providing us with the 2000 Paris show and the 2001 Madison show, others I have attended. Good Lord, that Barrymore show was LOUD!
Canít wait for the Madison show this tour. Again, Iíll gladly provide cheesecake & champagne for the boys. Just let me know - you have my e-mail address.
Just a pricing question

Will the Elements tour box be $25 at the shows as well? I know that some tours can really jack up the merch prices at shows, not that I blame you lovely, beautiful DGM folk, but Iíd just figured to ask, because if itís cheaper through mail order Iíll just buy it today! Cheers
The tourbox retails for $25 at the gigs
Crim Vinyl/Elements Box Set
:: Posted by DevlinC on September 12, 2014
First, registering my agreement with Yalien - if the vinyl re-issues are doing well, please consider releasing the 3 albums that never had a vinyl printing.
Secondly, the Elements box set arrived in the post this morning and Iím just over half way through the first disc, having listened to the 2 minutes 35 seconds of Larks Part 1 from the 2014 band. Very interesting - it would appear these old tracks are not being slavishly re-created, but are being somewhat reinterpreted? With the exception of Jakko exactly replicating the guitar leading into Melís flute solo that replaces the original violin, thereís not much there to hint at the piece it claims to be.
Overall, the box is extraordinarily well sequenced and I was surprised to see that the credit for that goes primarily to Sid Smith! Great job Sid - the set takes the familiar and unfamiliar and weaves a thread through the entire catalogue. It breathes new life into familiar territory, in much the same way as the band appears to be doing on the road. A great companion piece, far surpassing the previous 2 tour boxes. Anyone who hasnít pulled the trigger on this yet, get over to Burning Shed or Inner Knot immediately.

Mr. Mundy, below are the dates/venues Iíd love to be able to relive:
King Crimson November 2nd, 2000 at the Modjeska in Milwaukee
King Crimson March 16th, 2003 at the Modjeska in Milwaukee
King Crimson November 8th, 2003 at Park West in Chicago
Robert Fripp October 13th, 2005 at the Rave Basement in Milwaukee
Robert Fripp and the League of Crafty Guitarists November 9th, 2007 at Park West in Chicago
King Crimson August 8th, 2008 at Park West in Chicago
Itís a tradition that anytime Iíve seen Crimson, Fripp, Belew, or the Crimson ProjeKct Iíve gone with my mom, so Iím hoping if any or all of these shows become available, theyíd make for a great present (sheís been a fan since she was working on her Art degree in 1970 when sheíd bring in ...Poseidon to play in the studio while she and her classmates painted).
I know youíre especially busy with the current tour and a large workload outside of that, but I figure it doesnít hurt to ask for possible releases down the road when you may have the time. Thanks for everything you do!

Uhm...very fortunate to...uhm...to have uhm...uhm...been a part of the...uhm...uhm...last two nights... uhm...at The Egg in...uhm..uhm...uhm...Albany.
I remember thinking after the fourth and final show in NYC back in 2008 how that current King Crimson had grown exponentially in itís playing since seeing them some two weeks earlier in Nashville and how ferocious that beast could become as the band evolved in the future.
The beast that emerged last night at The Egg had grown so much in itís power from two nights ago that itís almost frightening to think of what it shall become the next time I see them a week from now, a little closer to home in NYC.
I too would also like to thank my fellow audients in The Egg. At times that silence was deafening.
And to the band, yes, I did take hundreds of pictures. Before the show! The architecture on those government buildings were incredible. Add in the modern symmetry of those newer buildings in the plaza where The Egg stood, and The Egg itself along with the reflecting pools. Brilliant. Hundreds of pictures! Pictures of a City...

Now...in this faraway land
Strange...that the palms of my hands
Should be damp with expectancy
Albany ...and the airís turning cool
City lights...and the glimpse of a band
The trois batteurs infantry
Bob...do you know what I mean
Pain...of the gathering scene
Of my Desiderata out-of-town
But lord I couldnít go
My debt was laid too great behind me
To face the call of fans
To pay their drunkardís revelry
And explain to the trouble and strife
Has brought a different anxiety
Hope from these touring days
Shall come a broader symphony
And though I count the hours
To be denied is no injury...
Come home...to a place near the fans
Riffs...and a quality band
Blow an air of expectancy

I just wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in putting on such a wonderful night of music in Albany. It was inspiring, soaring, emotive, crushingly beautiful stuff. Further, from my perspective, it was one of the best rock music audiences I have ever been a part of. During some of the quiet, delicate music which led out of the heaviest tunes of the night, you could literally hear a pin drop. So thanks to my fellow audients as well for helping give the music space to take flight.
Especially thanks to Mr. Fripp, who seems to have found a way forward for King Crimson by looking to the past.
It was a truly uplifting experience.
cheers, and best of luck on the rest of the tour.
