The Tale of the Tapes.

The sixteen concert recordings in this box fall into three basic types: one bootleg (an unofficial audience recording), ten board mixes (recordings of the sound sent to the PA system on the night) and five professional recordings (all by George Chkiantz from a mobile recording studio outside the venue). These last five concerts are presented in both conventional CD resolution and in Blu-Ray high resolution 192 khz.  All have their merits and each has good claim to be the most “realistic”.

The professional multi-track recordings offer the best audio quality. They were originally mixed in 1991 at the time of The Great Deceiver (although only selected parts were included in that box set). At the time, the various mixes were recorded both onto analogue half inch tape and into a Sadie computer system, one of the first digital editors, running on Windows 3.0. As Fripp wrote in his original liner notes: “Digital equipment remains in its infancy and computers crash – not if but when. Both formats have advantages – a properly balanced Ampex with Dolby SR is maybe unbeatable for a sweet, true sound. But with the amount of compiling on this project, let’s hear it for digital assembly!” Given the huge advances in digital equipment since the early 1990s, I proposed in a rash unguarded moment that for this project we (or rather I) should return to the “properly balanced Ampex with Dolby SR” and recompile these mixes in super high resolution. I had somehow chosen to forget that the practice at the time, pre-automation, was to mix each section of each song three or four times and to then select and compile the best. And that Robert Fripp’s acute interest in the stereo architecture of pieces meant that he would continuously reposition players. So we were faced with roughly two hundred separate mixes to be auditioned and recompiled, often trying to join segments with violently differing tonal qualities and musicians seemingly leaping around the stage. It became the work of months, not the days I had foolishly imagined.

I make no claim that the high resolution versions on the Blu-Ray are “better” than the original versions presented on the CDs. They are different, wider in their stereo image and brighter with extended high end (which, despite the trends of mastering engineers over many decades, is not necessarily better). The editing particularly in matters such as the audience links is however undoubtedly more faithful to the exact flow of the original concerts.

The ten “board mixes” presented different challenges. These were recorded each night by Peter Walmsley, the sound engineer, and faithfully capture the sound sent to the PA system. They are inevitably heavily biased towards the voice and drums, as the other instruments were already amplified onstage. DGM has become an unwilling world leader in the dark arts of audio necromancy, rescuing the semblance of a listenable concert from such unprepossessing starting points (not a life-skill any of us wanted or expected).  In this instance, Peter Walmsley added an additional challenge through his habit of pausing the cassette machine between songs – frequently forgetting to switch it back on until just after the downbeat of the next piece. Where audience links existed, we have kept them, where they were missing, we have recreated them to maintain continuity.  The music is, however, with the exception of those odd errant downbeats, exactly as it was played. In just one instance (the Talking Drum on the 7th June) we have completed the performance by inserting a section from the night before.  As such fabrication is a mortal sin to lovers of authenticity, we have PQ’d the inserted section, so that purists can take the bumpy road and bypass it.

The recording of the final concert from Central Park on July 1st is of unknown provenance. It seems too well-balanced to be the usual illicit cassette player smuggled into the venue, and yet the presence of chatter during one of the pieces shows that neither is it a properly mixed recording. Possibly it is a bootleg recorded on a pair of microphones over the stage. The audience links jump around (as does one section of Fracture), but in its way, it is possibly the closest to the actual sound of a venue. It is significant in that it captures the last live performance of this line-up.

Concert recordings are frequently incomplete (lovers of The Great Deceiver box set will recall The Law of Maximum Distress Parts 1&2, where a section was missing from the middle of the improvisation).  In the unusual case of Fort Worth on 6th June, we had two recordings of the same night, one being a board recording and the other an audience bootleg, and we were able to accurately complete the performance by flying in the missing opening and closing sections from that alternative source. Sadly, that is not often possible.  Where songs are obviously incomplete and either leap in half way through, or cut off before the end, they have been marked with an asterisk, so that it is clear this is not a CD error, but a failure of some poor tape operator or his machine at the time.

Going, Going, Grooveshark Gone
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., May 1, 2015
Grooveshark, the online music service you’ll recall who used to upload artists music without licenses and then pretend it was being done by their users, have closed down.

This message was posted on their website.

Dear music fans,
Today we are shutting down Grooveshark.

We started out nearly ten years ago with the goal of helping fans share and discover music. But despite [the] best of intentions, we made very serious mistakes. We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service.

That was wrong. We apologize. Without reservation.

As part of a settlement agreement with the major record companies, we have agreed to cease operations immediately, wipe clean all the data on our servers and hand over ownership of this website, our mobile apps and intellectual property, including our patents and copyrights.

At that time of our launch, few music services provided the experience we wanted to offer ­and think you deserve. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case. There are now hundreds of fan friendly, affordable services available for you to choose from, including Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Beats Music, Rhapsody and Rdio, among many others.

If you love music and respect the artists, songwriters and everyone else who makes great music possible, use a licensed service that compensates artists and other rights holders.

You can find out more about the many great services available where you live here: http://whymusicmatters.com/find-music.

It has been a privilege getting to know so many of you and enjoying great music together. Thank you for being such passionate fans.

Yours in music,

Your friends at Grooveshark”


Long-term visitors to this site will recall Grooveshark infringed King Crimson’s copyright numerous times. In 2011 DGM began issuing take-down notices. Grooveshark would remove the material which would then mysteriously pop up a day later and the process would start again. Nothing to do with us, they would claim and so it would go on...

Robert Fripp diary 17th August 2011

Robert Fripp dairy 12th September 2011

After the correspondence between DGM and Grooveshark appeared in the pages of Digital Music News, a whistleblower who worked at Grooveshark came forward in the comments section:

I work for Grooveshark. Here is some information from the trenches:

We are assigned a predetermined ammount of weekly uploads to the system and get a small extra bonus if we manage to go above that (not easy).The assignments are assumed as direct orders from the top to the bottom, we don’t just volunteer to "enhance" the Grooveshark database.

All search results are monitored and when something is tagged as "not available", it get’s queued up to our lists for upload. You have to visualize the database in two general sections: "known" stuff and "undiscovered/indie/underground". The "known" stuff is taken care internally by uploads. Only for the "undiscovered" stuff are the users involved as explained in some posts above. Practically speaking, there is not much need for users to upload a major label album since we already take care of this on a daily basis.

Are the above legal, or ethical? Of course not. Don’t reply to give me a lecture. I know. But if the labels and their laywers can’t figure out how to stop it, then I don’t feel bad for having a job. It’s tough times.

Why am I disclosing all this? Well, I have been here a while and I don’t like the attitude that the administration has aquired against the artists. They are the enemy. They are the threat. The things that are said internally about them would make you very very angry. Interns are promised getting a foot in the music industry, only to hear these people cursing and bad mouthing the whole industry all day long, to the point where you wonder what would happen if Grooveshark get’s hacked by Anonymous one day and all the emails leak on some torrent or something.

And, to confirm the fears of the members of King Crimson, there is no way in hell you can get your stuff down. They are already tagged since you sent in your first complaint. The administration knows that you can’t afford to sue for infringement."

All of which (and more) is detailed in Robert Fripp’s diary 20th October 2011.

This post was included in the legal action taken out by UMG, Sony and Warners against Grooveshark which eventually led to the settlement announced today.

On This Date 41 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Apr 29, 2015
King Crimson stepped out onto the stage at Pennsylvania's Stanley Theatre 41 years ago and played a blinder of a set before a lively crowd. My thanks to Stan Kos for sending in this photograph of the building today, now known as The Benedum Centre For The Performing Arts.



Back in 1974,  Keith Webber was at thee gig and recalls "KC shared the bill with Robin Trower. Both groups put on a great show. Bill Bruford was amazing. Fripp didn't seem like a happy-camper due to the audience being so loud on a couple of songs. Wetton was alright but didn't compare or come close to Lake's vocals on original 1969 King Crimson songs they did that night."

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette offered this review: "King Crimson managed to sell out the Stanley Theatre with ease, putting on at least the second best show of the week. King Crimson, the grandaddy of progressive rock, put out albums five years ago that the rest of the world is just catching up to now, and spawned either by influence or ex-members most of the progressive stuff flying through the airwaves now.

The show was basically an aural experience, without the benefit or frills of dramatic visuals, and it featured even more free-form, synthesized way-out warpings than is usually associated with Crimson. The show ranged from the ethereal to some heavy undulating electronics, sharpened by David Cross' violin and John Wetton's choking vocals. The act had an outer space feel to it, underlined by a sometimes hard use of synthesizers."


By way of highlighting the unrelenting glamour of life on the road at the time, here's Robert's diary for the day.

(The day began in Columbus, Ohio).

Arose, with difficulty, 10.20  D.E. 'phoned from N. York: he'll stay there to work instead of joining us in Pittsburgh. Exercises and pack.

11.15 Restaurant. Stamp mail. JW joins.
11.40 Practise.
Room: crimson carpet; red patterns on curtains & bed covers; fawn walls; 2 pictures of antique cars.
12.10 Lobby.
12.45 Airport. BB rushes off & leaves DC with cases (as I do!). DC gives him the word. I begin to go through security at the wrong gate.
13.20 Take-off.
13.55 Land at Pittsburgh. Taxis to Hilton.
14.40 Shave.
15.15 Sleep.
15.30 Awoke & shower.
16.00 Snack & coffee. Uptight for leaving early - snap at Dik.
16.30 Lobby. Taxis to gig. Buy "Old Straight Track" opp. in cheap bookshop. Change strings & lose little screwdriver. Snap at Dik. Barbara told me yesterday she carried a ouijii board in the back of her car; crashing by predetermination. Today she offered me her board.
New music at soundcheck. I have doubts.
18.30 Return to hotel. Barbara cut my hair short.
19.40 Practise.
20.00 Prepare.
20.20 Lobby.

Recording for the King Biscuit hour. I played v. badly. Brought down - couldn't talk to anyone. Back to hotel with Barbara & PW. I walked to White Tower & had a big cheeseburger & coffee. KC went by in car as I was returning. In lobby JW asked if I was OK. I said it was the gig. DE 'phoned as I entered my room: 1.30. I told him I refused to do any recording for radio or tv where veto didn't exist. Watched end of "Charge of the Light Brigade" with Errol Flynn and "Mission Impossible" on tv.

2.40 Retired.

Dream: With BB & DC at a kind of volley ball game. I climb off the floor to join BB with the spectators & am in danger of falling into a swimming pool over the polystyrene fence.

Notes:
_____

1.JW = John Wetton, DC = David Cross, BB = Bill Bruford.

2. Managers are seemingly always able to travel to capital cities, or exotic locations, but prove too busy by far to visit the Pforzheim Jahnhalle.

3. Barbara was a friend of Peter Walmsley.
