Travis & Fripp's Discretion
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 25, 2014
There's a new collection of material from Travis & Fripp coming out.



Featuring material drawn from concerts in Cornwall, Barcelona and Rome, Discretion is the fourth Travis & Fripp album.

The album is set for release on 15th September and can be ordered from Inner Knot for USA and Burning Shed for Europe.

Recorded to hi-res multi-track with minimal studio overdubs prior to being mixed down to hi-res stereo, the album is presented in a two disc CD/DVD-A format in a digi-pack at a special price, enabling the music to be heard, as intended, in hi-res audio form on the DVD-A (playable on all dvd players).

Travis & Fripp's music moves from the small-scale and intimate to an epic grandeur filled with blissful reverie and, on occasion, mournful reflection.

A masterclass in empathy, invention and vision, the album features two additional audio tracks previously only available on video (including the stunning Rhapsody On The Theme From Starless, an improvisation based on one of the most beloved King Crimson tracks).

Dram By Dram
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jul 22, 2014
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

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.
