Robert Frippís name appeared on the marquee of this chain record store for about a week, and I was shocked. I attended the concert on time and the store was already thoroughly packed. So I had to stand in the back, and since it was a store floor after all, it was hard to see. Also Mr. Fripp is relatively short in stature so that made it worse.
Mr. Fripp began with a surprisingly lengthy unamplified spoken preamble which was very difficult to make out, and audience members were shouting out from time to time with, "Microphone! Canít hear you!" etc. One thing I recall him saying which surprised me was a comment on digital sampling and saying how wonderful it was that now we could use practically any sound in any manner, and he gave the example of using a door slam as a drumbeat. Disregarding the audienceís outbursts, Mr. Fripp spoke in a very quiet manner. He also mentioned something about the performerís limited obligation to the audience, the "vampiric" relationship, and a prohibition on recording devices, since they diminish the possibilities of the performance. With much urgency, someone finally appeared with a mic on a mic-stand and after weaving through the audience, placed it in front of Mr. Fripp. Whereby, Mr. Fripp immediately concluded his monologue and began his guitar solo with Revox machine.
When that was done, Mr. Fripp stopped, rewound the tape, gave a brief description of the intention of the following overdubbed improvisation, and then proceeded with a rather scalding performance over top the previous foundation.
Quite soon after the performance I was obligated to leave for some reason that I donít recall. I was quite overwhelmed by the performance.
In the photo, you can see a "corn plant" which is a popular ornamental plant, and also large paper which was hung for the performance, over the enormous plate glass windows of the store. The store has changed hands multiple times, but still stands at 1500 E Sunrise BLVD.

The ProjeKCts left me speechless. One of my favourite King Crimson incarnations, that has its 2nd place on my mental KC podium. What a fantastic idea they were - maybe they did not live for long, but we all got Read more

... like Iíve heard this before. I hope new material will be refreshing, and will not hear "Red, Part 454" or "Larksí part 5555"....

This is Crimson back to their best. Very much a reflection of the Red band. You can feel the power of the rhythm section with the master back to his best throwing in flying guitar work over the Read more

And we havenít even heard Mel Collinsí saxophone . . . Come to think of it, it would be great if this band performed "The Sailirís Tale" again.

This was my first purchase of soundscapes from DGM, a beginning of a love affair that lasts to this day. A hot marriage, to be more precise. I was not sure wether I was going to enjoy this, the soundscapes Read more
