A Whole Lotta Hartford Goin' On June 19, 1996
Written by Mike Stack
Last night was the G3 show in Hartford,
so myself and two of my friends headed over to check out RF, basically. Showed
up around 6pm or so, were checking
out the merchandise when we heard RF starting up. Headed in, checked out the
show. He played from 6-7:20 or so, sat off to my left (we were pretty much dead
centre). Lots of interesting stuff, seemed to be a lot more chordal strumming than
on the albums he's put out. At one point towards the end of RF's set, some
idiot started screaming and yelling and banging the chair in front of him.
Fripp got louder. Idiot got louder. Fripp got louder. Fripp also looked
somewhat annoyed at this point.
A few interesting notes about RF's performance
-most the crowd didn't give a damn, including some guy dressed all snazzily
in his business suit, who didn't shut up the whole night.
-RF occasionally got up, took off his guitar, and walked further to my left
to talk to someone else. Don't know who.
-RF wore a white shirt untucked and black pants, while switching to a black
shirt during the encore (more later...).
-No one smoked anything illegal during Fripp's set, something that couldn't
be said for the rest.

To respond to SSImuse, actually, if my research is correct (or if Robert wishes to corroborate me), that Roland organ, the VK-1, was intended to be a Hammond simulation, but without key-click, a second keyboard, or rotary speaker Read more

A good idea...but a wise decision not to have included it; in hindsight, it would have made the song too dated. Now a Hammond organ , on the other hand...

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

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
