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.

The Starlight pieces are some of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. And dont forget Time Stands Still. Highly recommended.

This has the "x" factor in spades! I’ve listened to it 4 or 5 times now since downloading yesterday and it just keeps growing on me. I was going to say that it is short, but succinct is Read more

When I first heard that Robert Fripp was coming to the Belcourt Theatre, I was delighted! I have witnessed Robert in the context of King Crimson, but this was a first time to see him live by Read more

Beautiful, and of some significance because of the graceful allusions to by-gone years (how much for ’Fracture’ indeed, venal gigster!). There’s a bit more of what I would term ’fear and trembling’ in this performance, which leads me to recommend Read more

Robert Fripp’s Soundscape performance from the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta GA is definitely one worth listening to again and again. While some familiar titles such as the now standard "Time Stands Still" and "At The End Of Time" Read more

Overall this Soundscapes performance is the most seamless I have listened to. The musical thoughts and emotions move in and through seemingly on a path of intention. Beautiful, enrapturing, transporting Read more
