Guildford Civic Hall
November 13, 1972

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)
    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, Muir)
 2    Book of Saturday (Daily Games)

    (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

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)

    (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.

You never know where King Crimson will pop up as jacethecrowl explains. "I work in a film archive and quite accidentally encountered this today.

Tippett & Travis & Soft Machine Legacy

Keith Tippett will be joining Soft Machine Legacy in London next week. Tippett has played with the band before which will feature John Etheridge (guitar), Roy Babbington (bass) John Marshall (drums) and of course, Theo Travis on sax.



Of Tippett’s Crimson connections Theo writes "Robert produced Keith’s Centipede album which included John Marshall…so all in the family! Actually I first met Robert when he came to a Soft Machine Legacy gig at the Pizza Express London back in 2006 (the night Mike Ratledge popped in later!)"

Tickets are available here or, if you’re feeling lucky, on the door at The Jazz Cafe (where of course P1 and P2 have played).
