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: Qué "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, can’t get any better.

This is amazing piece of work. I would pay for an entire album of these works in progress. Maybe call it the Lizard Session Tapes

Astoundingly beautiful! The guitar solo from Prince Rupert Laments solidified my lifelong appreciation of Fripp’s guitar playing. To hear this alternate take is beyond thrilling, especially with a previously unheard accompaniment is Read more

In my diary entry for the night of 1st July 1974, I assess the evening with ’best Crimso gig ever’. High praise for a show which nearly didn’t happen at all, and an out-of-doors one in a notoriously difficult city Read more

What John Wetton and Robert Fripp totally ring true. But what the audience felt is also part of the experience that summer night in NYC. I was there, and I will never forget Read more

I wrote this gig review shortly after the March 4th show at Blueberry Hill. As for the recording, this along with the Belcourt show are my favorites from this tour. Also do not miss out on the soundscapes from Estonia Read more

I’m the Ryan who initially wrote that review. It doesn’t seem so long ago! Listening back to this event, I realize how much Adrian steals the show throughout. His "Frying Pan" performance is superb from start to finish, and he Read more

I have often said that I would buy every show of this Crimson’s Summer 1974 U.S. tour if they were all made available, and I still mean it. DGM is trying to oblige, which I appreciate Read more
