Intriguing January 26, 2009
Written by emmapeelfanclub
These are the Stormy selections I do treasure - these intriguing insights into the recording or rehearsal process of the earliest line ups. I personally am one of those who doesnít really like or "get" the Lizard album and I donít think it showed what that line up was really capable of. These snapshots from the studio prove amply that Gordo and Andy were a good rhythm section and itís nice to hear their playing "close up".
It therefore throws new light on a rather misunderstood line up of Crim in the same way that the DGM live releases of the Boz line up has enhanced the reputation of that band proving they were great and that Islands again, like Lizard, didnít show what they were truly capable of.

The hottest show from the hottest leg of the í74 tour, and Iíve heard every available bootleg from this era. This is the one you need to buy. Brufordís funkiest and most authoritative performance Read more

I understand the choice to NOT use this piece. It wouldnít have fit with the general direction the rest of the recording took but it does point in an interesting jazz direction, at least for the overall Read more

for some reason, i canít recognize Starless on this one. With just the bass accompaniment, itís hard to make out the song. Iíll have to listen to the original Starless to figure this one Read more

You can tell Frippís just getting warmed up on this take. It still doesnít have the full ferocity of the final master but still sheds light on the Beast yet to Read more

This piece certainly makes my day. Lizard has always been my favourite Crimson album and I only wish Mr Fripp would be willing to issue a Lizard box with all the bits and takes that didnít end up on the Read more

This is an absolute jewel.
This solo, and the section where Jon Anderson sings over Keith Tippettís glistening arpeggios have always been my favorite parts of the original Lizard.
It is quite surprising this didnít make it on the 40th Anniversary Read more

Concurring heartily with previous reviews! Iíve actually "always" loved Lizard (and felt the initial stereo mix and mastering was *state of the art* for 1970 (especially the drum sound!) so i havenít quite understood all the hubbub over the new Read more
