good sounding recorded music possibility
:: Posted by ericbest on July 03, 2014

Have very much enjoyed the high definition music on the recent bout of issues and reissues. Neil Youngís Pono project seems promising in this direction. Is this something of interest to the folks at DGM?

Thank you for the Venturing Unto Joy Pt 1 download from KC í14. Itís good to hear Robert Fripp playing those long sustained guitar lines again and the KC í72-í74 feel of the music. The new band are going to be terrific!

To clarify: thereís been absolutely no official mention of anyone using the name Larks. I just heard the new snippet and it occurred to me that I hope they didnít try to tag one of the new songs as Larks. I will still enjoy the music exactly the same, I just postulated they should retire the name rather than having a new version with each incarnation. Itís Frippís et alís call, not mine. Iím just giving an opinion on the forum.

2014 tour
:: Posted by 21stcenturyD on July 02, 2014

 I saw King Crimson 10 years ago or so and heard of the tour but by the time I found out about tickets they were all scooped up by scalpers. PLEASE tell me you will tour more than just Oct. Does anyone know if they are adding dates. I CANíT MISS THIS! 

RE: Petitwazoo and LTIA
:: Posted by snkzato1 on July 02, 2014

In response to your question.  There is a video of Mr. Bill playing a drum pattern that sounds like the one from Sailors Tale hence we are figuring it is in the show.

In terms of Larkís.  Hey, if they do a #5 Im all for that (as it would mean new material and could we ever belly ache over new Crimson?). 

Since its first inception Larkís has kind of been a showcase of the band of that era representing some of the most complex work they have written specifically for the line-up.  While musically they do not line-up I feel thematically there is a lot of similarities.

If you have never done it I really suggest making a playlist with all four in order and listen to the progression.  It genuinely sounds like a musical time machine taking you through a huge variety of eras in such a short span.  I found it to be a really interesting musical experience.

LTIA moniker
:: Posted by StarlessBibleBlack on July 02, 2014

I could see as to why someone would get upset in the first place with the larks moniker. Personally, LTIA3&4 are nothing more than pale comparisons to the original two.

That said, I sense an appeal to jazz with the latest iteration of LTIA1 - Listen to the bass line and drums. Weíre not talking about Jamie, Bruford or Wetton. Weíre getting some fresh air, fresh playing, and definitely fresh re-iterations of a classic.

King Crimson should be proud of their work (be it RF or any alumniís contribution!). Like a good music sheet, it needs to breath, exhale, and renew the thought process with every cycle.Unlike most other rock stuff out there, KCís repertoire like other jazz standards, it matures nicely...it can also EVOLVE into something more interesting (Think Brufordís intro solo to Indiscipline, Easy Money 74 vs 73, etc)

The only real complaint is that no everyone going to able to experience this first hand this coming fall! :( bouhou!

Cage digital download
:: Posted by salex33 on July 02, 2014

I check the ET newletter archive. There is one mention of a Cage Digital download made by Chris Van Allen on Friday 11 August 1995. It seems it was avaliable at this address:

Coming back to the Aerosmith track, it is mentionned in the paper that it was the first official download from a major.
Likely, it was not the very first track available legally on the net.

Larks Query
:: Posted by Petitwazoo on July 02, 2014

Iím a regular reader here but clearly missed a couple of things.
Why is everyone talking about LTIA #5? And where did Sailors Tale get mentioned as being Ďin the setlistí?


íMťdťric Collignon et le Jus de Bocseí are impressive but can they do it on Segways?
