Guildford Civic Hall
November 13, 1972

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)
    (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

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.

WillyFred Flies Away

Endless Grief: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jun 21, 2016
From Robert Fripp’s Facebook page today:

Endless Grief undermined my confidence in the process of law, the public-school educated, the English Gentleman, chartered accountants and the professions, players within public life and charities: pretty much all those institutions that were an end-result of a long process of developing-standards in public and national life throughout C19-20th. Britain. In the postwar Dorset of my youth, I was brought up to have confidence in these institutions. In attempting to understand the mechanics of Endless Grief, I am also attempting to understand the present era: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.

How to see all of this? The universe in a grain of sand, the Human Condition in one sorry management firm?

Robert’s diary: 12th March 2012

Development firm loses another appeal.


The EG Way continues?
DQ’s Tara Cubbon acted for Lloyds Bank International Limited (the “Bank”) in successfully striking out the claim by The Slegaby Estate Limited (“TSEL”) and Samuel George Alder (“Mr Alder”) against the Bank pursuant to the doctrine of res judicata and as an abuse of process...
His Worship further held that TSEL and Mr Alder had failed to treat the First Proceedings as they should have done. They had no excuse for not pursuing matters fully and adopting an “unduly casual attitude” in their response. This was contrary to the onus in the 2009 Rules on the expedition of litigation and the avoidance of multiplicity of proceedings and in His Worship’s view was an attempt to have “a second bite of the cherry” following the dismissal of their appeal in the First Proceedings.

Court confirms law on res judicata and abuse of process.

Beat & Three Of A Perfect Pair Pre-Order
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 16, 2016
The new stereo and surround sound mixes of King Crimson’s Beat and Three Of A Perfect Pair are set to be released October 14th 2016.

The long-awaited albums represent the next installment in the acclaimed 40th Anniversary Series which began in 2009.

Beat was released in June 1982 just eight months after the 80s Crimson lineup debut album “Discipline”.

It marked the first occasion where a King Crimson line-up had remained intact for a two album stretch and was also the first album by the band to employ a separate producer – Rhett Davies. The juxtaposition of lyrics heavily influenced by 50s beat luminaries Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady.

The complex polyrhythmic musical textures of the ‘80s Crimson, the strength of the songs and the cohesion of the studio performances, all helped the album chart upon release in the US and the UK.

Songs like Waiting Man, Neal and Jack and Me and Heartbeat became firm favourites with fans and concert goers. Heartbeat in particular was an FM radio regular in the US and even merited a promo film shot for the then-emerging music TV market, while one of the album’s twin instrumental tracks, Sartori In Tangier, anticipated the emerging interest in African based rhythmic styles that would become such a fascination for musicians in the latter part of the decade.

As ever, Crimson was pushing forward, looking for new methods to communicate internally as a band and externally with an audience. It was, perhaps, the nearest King Crimson ever came to the rock music ‘mainstream’.

As with other albums in the King Crimson CD/DVD-A series, the stereo CD features a new stereo mix by Robert Fripp and  Steven Wilson, while the DVD-A features 5.1 mixes of the album by Steven Wilson, high resolution stereo mixes of the original and  new stereo mixes. Additionally, the original album is presented in rough mix form along with additional audio extras, video performance footage of two songs from The Alabamahalle, Germany and the original promo film for Heartbeat.

Heartbeat (live, Munich 1982)

Please note that all material on this edition will be included on the forthcoming '80s box set, On And Off The Road.




Having released two albums in a nine month period between October 1981 and July 1982, Three of a Perfect Pair is the final part of the recorded trilogy begun with Discipline and Beat. Originally released in April 1984, from the pointillist minimalism of the title track through to the urgent rush of Sleepless and the album’s closer Larks’ Tongues in Aspic III - the only reference to the 1970s incarnations of the band – Crimson’s distinctive mixture of rock, electronica, funk and pure pop songs, ensured the group’s status as one of the most interesting and innovative bands of the decade.

Following the release of the album, the band embarked on a tour of Japan and from there America and Canada. At the completion of the last date in July 1984, Fripp, Bruford, Levin and Belew went their separate ways to pursue their respective solo commitments.

King Crimson would reconvene in the mid- 1990s with a double trio line-up featuring all of the 1908s band members, while the band’s current line-up (2014 – present) features both Robert Fripp and Tony Levin from the 1980s band.

King Crimson’s final album of the 1980s is augmented with extra tracks newly mixed for the 2016 edition on CD.

As with other albums in the King Crimson CD/DVD-A series, the stereo CD features a new stereo mix by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson plus additional tracks, while the DVD-A features 5.1 mixes of the album by Steven Wilson and high resolution stereo mixes of the original and new stereo mixes. Additionally, the original album bonus tracks from the 30th anniversary CD are included as is the promo film for ‘Sleepless’, a song originally released as 12” single which became an unlikely hit on the New York dance scene of the time.

Full Circle
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 12, 2016
Earlier today Robert Fripp posted this update to his Facebook page.

To Those Who Know And Who Are Known...

The Guitar Craft Workshop is in process of being dismantled.

Guitar Craft, The Guitar Circle, The League Of Crafty Guitarists and The Orchestra Of Crafty Guitarists will cease to exist on Sunday 25th. March, 2017.

In a traditional model, apprentices served in a workshop, grew in personal stature, capacity and understanding, left the place of their instruction, and moved out into the world to establish a studio or workshop of their own, or form a partnership with others.

Perhaps some of you feel called upon to continue to act in service to the creative current we recognize acting in and through Guitar Craft and its several forms. You have my support and encouragement.

If this is so, put your own name, and/or find the right name, for that work. It is legitimate to present your lineage; and the extent, degree and participation in Guitar Craft and Guitar Circle courses, projects and activities. It is illegitimate for anyone to claim authorization or mandate, moving forwards, to formally represent and/or direct forms of Guitar Craft and The Guitar Circle.

I have seen claims made, in the professional arena, to have been a student of Robert Fripp. No “student of Robert Fripp” would claim to be a student of Robert Fripp.

Robert Fripp
Sunday 12th. June, 2016;
St. Mary’s Retreat Center, Oxford, Michigan.
