Somehow it worked! September 20, 2012

All tied together with great vocals & lyrics, Happy Family is a real good song. Something cool emerged from the Centipede experiment. Tippett was just plain awesome in K.Cs. abstract ventures. The haphazard Jazz guitar seems to be just on the verge of spoiling it all... And thats itís strength and genius. A very fine line, this could have been just noise.

I have always loved Lizard. I like it the best of the "early" era albums and only ever surpassed by Larks and Red. Shame the Lizard band never played live. It would have been really something to have heard the band with the "extra fringe players" as well. Love these alternate mixes and takes. I would really love to hear a bare bones duet version mix of Lady of the Dancing Water with just Frippís guitar and Haskellís voice.

Hearing familiar playing in a different context has just put a huge smile on my face. Unfettered fun! The sonic mint on my pillow for the evening.

Incredible. More, please. (Yes, I suppose Iím one of those odd souls who think Lizard is Crimsonís finest achievement.)
