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."

No PussyFooting In Front Of The Camera
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Nov 24, 2015
The month sees the 42nd anniversary of No Pussyfooting by Fripp & Eno. As good as the music is, it also comes in a stunning cover. Here's the backstory on how it came about.
New Additions To The KC Archive
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Nov 24, 2015
Writing on Facebook, Robert notes that the King Crimson archive, both audio and video, continues to grow. "Road Dog Wilkins is the KC technician with responsibility for the archive viddying and audifying of King Crimson performances. These archives will be assembled and addressed at DGM World HQ with a view to making available whatever material best represents The Seven Headed Beast Of Crim in its Journeying Unto Joy.
There is no specific DVD or live album release currently in the calendar. It has taken Mr. Stormy approximately 17 years to put the DGM archive into a sortable, workable and available condition. And now hereís a pile more stuff. But best guess is, the Venal Impulse will triumph in 2017 and put-upon innocents will be encouraged to hand over their hard-earned pay..."

fascinating and illuminating insights into the soundworld of DGM that
will be of interest to Crimheads.

Here's a review of the November 19th show in Toronto.
And some commentary on the above review from Robert.
..."well-executed and intricately composed music needs more than technical mastery to make it sing."
agreed. it needs both players and audients coming together with goodwill, present in the moment, that they might welcome in and become parents to the Music. otherwise, the notes remain not much more than DNA. my views on this night's performance are already available for those with any interest.
"A tour based on a "best of" album, in this case King Crimson's Elements, can be a pretty safe bet, musically and in performance."
firstly, this is not a tour based on any album.
secondly, safe bet? not on Planet Crimson! playing this music in this KC is like walking through a minefield with friends.
