Guildford Civic Hall
November 13, 1972

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)
    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, Muir)
 2    Book of Saturday (Daily Games)
    (Fripp, Wetton, Palmer-James)
 3    RF Announcement

    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, Muir)

Disc 6 taken from a band cassette soundboard recording. Audio restored at
DGM by David Singleton and Alex R. Mundy.

Though incomplete as a show, this has much to recommend it – a lovely Book of Saturday (still called Daily Games at this point) & a shorter but no less powerful improv than previous, with Exiles incomplete & only a taster from the second improv to leave the listener all the more eager for the missing sections.

Oxford New Theatre
November 25, 1972

    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Palmer-James)

Disc 7 taken from cassette bootleg, audio restored June 2012 at DGM by David Singleton and Alex R. Mundy.
   
Also incomplete, but the material that would form the first side of the album is now solidifying, the playing has tightened as the tour has progressed and the improv’s a killer – another fan favourite download.

Never mind the road to Red - is this the road to ruin? My thanks to John O' Connor, who first saw Crimson at the Greyhound, Croydon, 1971, for sending in this item. "The old goat has been immortalised in spirit at last!! Could not resist taking advantage of the famous grouse promotion to personalize a whiskey bottle. So, toasting young Robert and the re-formulated Crimson crew with a wee dram and wishing the boys all the very best for the forthcoming tour."

:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jul 19, 2014
You can catch Robert Fripp's contribution to BBC4's The Joy Of The Riff via the BBC iPlayer.



Robert's segment of the show pops up at around 22 minutes.



"The riff was only one part of what King Crimson did. Their was a lot more going on...I don't think in terms of a riff. I might think in terms of a phrase or a motif"



John Doran of The Quietus offered this assessment of his work. "Robert Fripp is undoubtedly a genius. His earlier work with King Crimson, it's so technically proficient, it's so hard to get a handle on what he's doing"

The show is available to UK viewers for another six days via the iPlayer
