P1 Missing Seven Minutes Restored
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 5, 2006

When this gig was first uploaded it was missing seven minutes worth of music – a fact that went unnoticed by all and sundry until the mighty Vargan alerted us to this lamentable omission.  

After digging around in the labyrinthine vaults of DGM, ‘Stormy’ Mundy has found the missing track – a catchy little bolero-based foot-tapper – and returned it to its rightful place as the penultimate number of the first set. 

Anyone who bought the original release should access their accounts and download the complete concert. 

How did such an omission happen in the first place?  Here's how.  

The four Projekct one shows were recorded by David Singleton onto ADATs, which are effectively three VHS video machines linked together. During the first set, there was a problem with one of these tapes - and during the audience applause after the third improv, the tapes were switched off, and set of tapes from a previous night (which still had some unused space) inserted. After this improv - the original set of tapes were put back in for the remainder of the set.

As Alex ‘Stormy’ Mundy was only uploading night four to DGMLive, he hadn't seen the other tapes - one of which is clearly labelled as containing the "penultimate improv from first set night four" - which has now been restored to its rightful place.

But the bizarre feature of all of this is that the "join", where the machines were switched off, the tapes removed and then not used until some seven minutes later, is completely inaudible. The concert that was uploaded had not been doctored. Anyone with the original download (now a collectable item?!) can listen to the join between the fourth and fifth improvs - somewhere there should be an audible "leap" where seven precious minutes were stolen and put onto a different set of tapes. Call us deaf, but we can't hear it.

King Crimson's Live In Toronto has received thumbs up from the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages website.

"King Crimson are as vital and innovative as they ever were, and perhaps even more so in today's somewhat turgid music scene. Real music, by proper musicians, out there taking chances and delivering something very new."

On This Date...

44 years ago on this date Bill Bruford formally left Yes to take up residency in King Crimson.

Before the internet, social media, message boards and dedicated band websites, they way you found out what what your favourite band might be up to was to buy one of several weekly music papers that appeared on the newstands.

Here's how many of us back then found out about the new incarnation of King Crimson 44 years ago this week.



Talking Hedvig's Trio
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 15, 2016
My thanks to Chris De Vito for this link to an interview with Norwegian guitarist, Hedvig Mollestad. With the Hedvig Mollestad Trio she makes a remarkable sound and their latest album, Black Stabat Mater is hailed by some critics as their best yet. 

From the interview comes this passage...

It has been stated many times that King Crimson is not so much a band as it is “a way of doing things”. Less frequently stated but equally true, is the fact that the band inevitably seeks different ways of doing things. The current incarnation of the band, 2014 – the present day, has already released two taster sets in the form of 2015’s Live at the Orpheum mini-album and the vinyl picture disc EP that accompanied the 2015 tours of Canada and Japan, while the full raw concert performance from a single night in Toronto in 2015 was presented as a 2CD set earlier this year to great acclaim.

Now, with the release of Radical Action comes the most fully realised audio and visual statement from this band to date, running to three themed CDs and a Blu-Ray disc offering the filmed content along with an audio only option in lossless high resolution stereo and surround sound.

The set includes at least one performance of every song/piece of music played by King Crimson in 2015, some pieces originally composed in 1969 the year of the band’s inception, others composed/initially performed at a variety of points since, some new to the tour, all arranged for this specific line-up. Indeed it is characteristic of this King Crimson – in direct contrast to all other post 1970s line-ups - to feature a broad range of material from the 1969 - 1974 era, performed in such a manner as to maintain much of what made the music so arresting when first issued, while arranged for fresh interpretation by the seven piece line-up of today. As Fripp put it (when asked what the title of the album meant to him): “What I like about this band is, that what it is actually doing is not what it appears to be doing...”. The idea of King Crimson re-imagined, that the music as presented is new,irrespective of when originally composed, is the key element in this band’s makeup.

The set will be released to coincide with King Crimson’s most extensive European tour since 1974, with performances slated to include, for the first time ever, material from all seven of King Crimson’s 1969 – 1974 iconic studio albums and  with limited availability via mail order and concert venues.

Audio: Three themed CDs of material recorded in 2015, each forming a separate discrete
performance with audio selected from a variety of shows and fully mixed from multi-track tapes by Chris Porter, Robert Fripp and David Singleton. As no audience is audible between tracks, this allows for a “virtual studio album” effect. (The current King Crimson line-up was deliberately conceived as a performing band rather than as a band concerned with making full studio recordings).

Video: Among the problems most associated with filming live performance, perhaps the key problems are those of the film-makers’ cameras intruding on the audience’s capacity to enjoy the show without interruption and the intrusion of the cameras on the band’s performance. In effect, both performance and audience response must be misrepresented to approximate a live show for later consumption. In order to record the performances more accurately, a series of Japanese concerts was captured via a number of discreet cameras in a “video vérité” style – with neither band nor audience disturbed by filming – by Trevor Wilkins who also edited and assembled the footage.

Audio/Video: Two DVD discs featuring the complete concert performances. Blu-Ray features the concert film in high-resolution [24/48] stereo and 5.1 surround sound with additional ‘video off’ mode allowing for high-resolution audio only playback in stereo and surround sound.

In essence the music can be experienced in a number of different ways – as continuous uninterrupted audio on CD, as a viewable concert performance in stereo or 5.1 surround on the DVDs and  Blu-Ray, or in high-resolution, lossless audio stereo or 5.1 surround without pictures on the Blu-Ray.
