Dave Stafford really nails it in his Crimson/Orpheum review.....Great Job !

It took me a couple of years to find the door letting me really coming into this record. Taking aside the very awe-inspiring overdubs on the THRAK intro and esp. the outtro, the improvisations that have been picked for the recording are somehow a representation of the "repertoire".
Most (including myself and the artists themselves?) would argue that the 94-96 improvisational outfit did not reach the excellence of 72-74, but 94-96 was just the road to the 97-99 improvisations which in many aspects (diversity, use of modern technology, breadth by different styles exploited at the same time like electronica, jazz, metal, whole tone scales etc.) excel the period of 72-74.
Thus for me 94-96 is just the road to the climax of 97-99, the latter being the landmark of KC third period from 92 - 03 (92 as I tend to count sylvian-fripp-gunn and rfsq to the same period of RF’s way of musiKcing).
Whilst listening through the currently available 95 tour bundles and downloads, the repercussions of what I have already heard of it on Thrakattak usually give me goosebumps.
I appreciate the idea of assembling a new mix of attacks at my nervous system!
I am very looking forward to it and am again and again very grateful for David’s and Alex’ (and all you others and the artists’) dedication to repeatedly revisit archives.

I stumbled on the picture of KC Elements S.Francisco dates "poster" (scrolling down on T.Levin’s web diary page 19).
It must be a joke. Yes, from the first pyramid to the last.
Drive to 1981 Fripp albums reissued?
:: Posted by mikefrost on February 14, 2015
When when WHEN will we get ’Under Heavy Manners / God Save The Queen’, ’League of Gentlemen’ and ’Let The Power Fall’ on CD? Younger fans such as myself would LOVE to hear the music but simply can’t acquire it legally. As the Summers / Fripp reissues appear to be in the pipeline are there ANY plans at all to release these? Also, what happened to the Beat / TOAPP 40th Anniversary reissues? Is there any chance we’ll get the complete Frejus 1982 footage? Or at least a proper film transfer? This is my first post on the guestbook so I’ve got a lot of questions. So long!
Hi there Mike and welcome to the guestbook,
the quick answer is that all of the recordings you mention will be properly assessed and addressed in time. When? Well, that's the longer answer and depends on many factors. The 40th Anniversary series reissues will continue in 2015 and we hope to be able to make an announcement about this in the not too distant future. I hope.

Anyone know what happened to the planned remastered CD on Panegyric? A Feb 16 2007 post by Sid Smith said ’later that year’ !! Can only find second-hand overpriced Japanese imports online...
Thanks for any info. Robin.
The Summers / Fripp albums are in the queue to be done by Panegyric but a release slot has yet to be allocated. As soon as we have any news on progress, to coin a phrase, we'll let you know.

Another strange coincidence I noticed this morning was with Roberts T shirt and this iconic image from the 40s.
Or maybe not.... Lol.
Copy or coincidence?

The Kinks (1964) "all day and all of the night". And The Doors hello, I love you" (1968) share a pretty similar line. I think it’s coincidental, but there was some legal wrangling about it.
In the liner notes to The Doors Box set, Robby Krieger has denied the allegations that the song’s musical structure was stolen from Ray Davies, where a riff similar to it is featured in the Kinks “All Day and All of the Night”. Instead, he said the song’s vibe was taken from Cream’s song “Sunshine of Your Love”.

THOUGHTS ON MULTITHRAK
:: Posted by markvankempen on February 14, 2015
I say, Thrakattak II - The Return Of The Sons Of Thrak, is something to look forward to. The 1996 Thrakattak has the curious effect of making me dizzy, similar to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Hymnen and Prozession. On Thrakattak, the six players each have their own little repertoire of phrases to expand on, adding them to the collective soup at random in ever changing combinations, with unforseen results. It comes close to the method Stockhausen used for Prozession. As there are several things happening simultaneously while in flux all the time, the listener is forced to use their associative faculty to the max to forge some fleeting connections, while the impression remains that there is still a lot going on that cannot be grasped. Not everybody’s idea of musical entertainment, I suppose.
I wonder if Steven Wilson could be persuaded to mix one of the concert recordings to be included in the Thrakboxx. It hasn’t escaped my attention that Steven is a very busy man these days, seemingly hellbent on remixing the entire ’70s British progressive rock output single-handed. If only Steven could be cloned...or has he?
Thank you, David. But...

Appreciate the answer, Mr. Singleton; thank you. But I think the year on that Warfield show is 1995. Crimso was storming Europe in June of ’96.

Thanks for reminding,Sid. I’m gonna go to purchase ... ... something. My Lady would get mad, Valentine’s and the first day of Spring seems to be really important dates.
And 31 August from now on.
I can’t wait on tour (with "Indiscipline" and "The Gathering Sky" in the programme?), and then a box set - all performances and bonus shots "Bubbly Life" or whatever.
I’ll be there. And you will see me; fevered old josser in the first row, grinning and clapping unusually!
