Entry, First Avenue, Minneapolis June 20, 1984
Written by Mark Newstrom
The concert was preceded by various videos, one of which was Andy Summers and Robert Fripp performing (?) from "I Advance Masked." The ballerinas were lovely and lithe, I can't say anything about the guitarists.
The concert was pure joy, including three moments seared in my memory:
Having just finished a number ("Elephant Talk" I believe), Adrian addressed the crowd:
AB: So do you like the weird stuff?
Aud: YEA, applause, etc.
AB: Well I do too..
At this point, AB makes another strange guitar noise, but his reaction is total dismay; not the sound he expected. He then realizes he's been had, and looks over to see RF almost falling off his stool trying to contain himself.
AB: That's Fripp 3, Belew 2... (audience erupts laughing and clapping)
Moment B) Robert absolutely shredding the guitar/violin solo section in "Lark's Tongues in Aspic, part II." Certainly seemed that "the Muse had descended."
Moment C) no flashes, a receptive audience, Robert stays on with the band at the end. We all salute each other. . .

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 Frippís guitar playing. To hear this alternate take is beyond thrilling, especially with a previously unheard accompaniment is 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

Iím the Ryan who initially wrote that review. It doesnít 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
