What a drums!! February 20, 2012
Written by TheWinkler
My grandfather should be 105 by now but he died at 97. He was an excellent musician that could have been professional, but his family forced him to be an architect.
He founded the first Jazz orchestra in Barcelona in 1927, called Tribu Universitaria and played sax (imported from the US as there were no saxes in Europe then) and violin, among other instruments.
When he come home, I always played him some of my favourite prog music, he quite liked some of it, other bored him to death. Dispite his violin expertise, he never enjoyed David Cross playing i.e.
But I still remember the first time I played In the Court of the Crimson King to him. After only 20 seconds of playing his face litghtened and he exclamed in his Spanish jazzy language: Quť "drums"!!!! (What a drum player!!!!).
Thank you Alex, for bringing this back to my mind. Dispite what Mr. Fripp says, I think that Michaels playing in 21st, ITCOCK and Epitaph, canít get any better.

Why do we always have pictures of Willie Scott Bruford on the ads for live sets?

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
