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."

Fripp On The Box
:: 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





On This Date 42 Years Ago...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jul 19, 2014
Bill Bruford formally left Yes to take up residency in King Crimson on this date 42 years ago. Back before the internet, before Twitter, message boards and dedicated music websites, they way you found out what what your favourite band might be up to was to buy one of several weekly music papers. Here's how many of us back then found out about the new incarnation of King Crimson that week.

My thanks to FraKcman who writes "Is it only me? Am I the only one who hears LTIA loud and clear in the end titles of BBC TV show ’Flog it: Trade Secrets’?
For those in the UK only please see 28 minutes and 30 seconds
In fact the music used by the main Flog It show also sounds familiar to my ears.
It doesn’t matter what country you’re in for this link."

Dyble Does It Again
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jul 14, 2014
Judy Dyble has a new album out next week.  Live At WM Jazz features a set recorded at the Water Margin in London's O2 in December 2013. You can grab your copy via Burning Shed.



DGMLive visitor Colin Coates saw Judy and the band on Saturday night just gone in Norwich's Arts Centre. "It was wonderful. I expected the audience to be similar to myself, over 50 grey and balding, most of us with beards as well, but no, a high number of younger folk, and I would say 40% female audience. The Curator, (Alistair Murphy) and his band played stuff from his excellent albums, most of side two from Inside the Whale before Judy joined them for the rest of the evening over two sets.

 I Talk To The Wind came with a chat about recording it with the Giles brothers, Fripp and Ian McDonald back in the flat in ‘60’s when she was between Fairport and Trader Horn. Later Alistair reflected on putting together in his studio Harpsong, from Judy’s Talking with Strangers album, with Ian McDonald’s and Robert’s contributions as sound files and thinking “I’ve got King Crimson playing together for the first time since ‘74”, before playing the number live in a shorted version.

The band was excellent, very tight, yet loose in their playing giving a depth to the music, Judy nervous at first, but relaxed into it all, and poor Alistair full of cold, and enjoyable on-stage banter. I Picked up the new album by Judy and the band, Live at WM Jazz, and highly recommend this as a similar set to what was played in Norwich. It has a good sound mix, and keeps Judy’s chat in as well, though sadly no I Talk To The Wind."

You can read my take on Judy's new album over on the blog.
