iTony eBook?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Feb 16, 2012

My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a lot of extras, including other shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music I can use for that release."

Happy Birthday Greg Lake
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Nov 10, 2015
Please raise a glass or a cup of something convivial in the direction of Greg Lake who celebrates his birthday today.



Greg also has a couple of albums about to be reissued. Thus sayeth the blurb:

Christmas 2015 will see the release of a double CD of Greg Lake’s first self-titled solo album from 1981 and his second solo album Manoeuvres from 1983. This 2 CD set will include four bonus tracks which were previously only available on the “From the Underground Vol. 2” release, along with an extensive booklet.



This is a great and easy way to buy both of Greg Lake’s studio albums and all the rarities connected to these albums in one place. This title will be released on 27th November 2015 and can be pre- ordered from Amazon here.

Also set for release on the same date will be Greg Lake and Geoff Downes’ Ride the Tiger project, which is a collection of six songs (plus one alternate version), recorded in late 1989 – early 1990, which have never been released together before. Four of the songs appeared on “From the Underground” and “From the Beginning: The Greg Lake Anthology” but this set includes the previously unreleased Street War and Affairs of the Heart – both of which ELP fans will recognise.



This release includes all new artwork and has the full approval of both Greg Lake and Geoff Downes.

This title will also be released on 27th November 2015 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon here.

Yet More THRAKKIES
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Nov 9, 2015
Here’s Daniel with the THRAK BOX joining his encyclopedic collection. He writes “Apologies. I was photo-bombed by two tour boxes and a teddy-bear at the last second. But I guess it’s OK, they are the ones that convinced me to buy this amazing slab o’ Thrak... (the CD boxes, not the bear!)"



And this from Mark. “This is the look of one happy Canadian receiving his Thrakk Deluxe edition boxset.  I’m seeing them here in Toronto in November. I hope they do a deluxe version of another album....maybe Beat? Or Discipline?



James, from Down Under, is captured down under a whole lotta Crim. “The THRAK box has made it to Melbourne. Unfortunately, in attempting to solve one form of Shelf Lean I fell victim to another...”



Finally, broadcaster Danny Baker was seen on Twitter brandishing his THRAK Box last night.




Keep your THRAKKIES coming, folks!

King Crimson Revised Photo Policy
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Nov 6, 2015
This just in from the team as they begin their preparations for Canada.

KING CRIMSON

Revised Photo Policy

5  November 2015



King Crimson, on its touring in 2014 and 2015, has requested of its audiences that audients refrain from photography, recording and viddying during the performance.


This has mostly been honoured. And when the band stops playing, at the end of the performance proper and following any encores, photography erupts. Except from T Lev, who has refrained from photography throughout.


The Brothers Crim have discussed this and formulated a revised photo policy to request of their audiences and audients:


Please refrain from photography, recording, viddying during the performance, including any encores. But when KC stops playing, then photography is acceptable.

 

Which means Tony can also snap into action.


We are also encouraging folks to send in their post-encore snaps directly to DGM Live so we can post ’em up here.


Send your photo to competitions@dgmlive.com

THRAKKIES Ahoy!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Nov 6, 2015
Here's yet more THRAKKIES for your delight. First up, DJ Tara sent a snap of this adorably cute beast (and a dog).  "Here is our pup Mojo here in Ontario Canada so excited it arrived today!"




A slightly different beastliness can be discerned in Andrew's snap...



And finally, Colin writes "Only had the chance to hear the 2015 mix and if that’s anything to go by – wow!"



In case you missed it, John Kelman's review of the THRAK BOX contains an interview with Jakko on the new stereo and surround sound mix.



RF's Focus
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Nov 5, 2015
This from Robert via Facebook.

Current road discipline:

rising 07.15.
cold shower.
exercise.
sitting.
morning reading.
practising.

no alcohol, no dessert.
no socialising.
no business.
no interviews.

ie focus.

question: does this (any particular arising) support the performance?

anything which does not support the performance = No.
anything which distracts / undermines focus = No.
