Sustaining! March 19, 2012
Written by syncopatico
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 Steven Wilson mix enabling this album to be heard clearly and spatially ícorrectí for the first time (in regards to his new stereo mix anyway); 5.1 will have to wait for this sonic resistor.
Getting back to the alternate take selection at hand, it would be interesting to know the order or number of each of the four solos recorded for Prince Rupertís Lament (obviously we DGM visitors have only heard this alternate and the master so far of course). This particular alternate solo sounds slightly íbusierí than the master (could this have been an earlier take?), and is as equally as valid, with perhaps a fadeout beginning at approximately 2:00 and ending at 2:12 on that long sustained note/bend being effective (on the alternate reality master/album) before Big Top kicks in.
I agree with the choice of removing the clean chordal accompaniment for the album--its presence makes the solo sound not quite lamentable enough--but is very interesting in this context to hear what RF was originally playing/listening/responding to.

While its fantastic to hear the entire Easy Money from Asbury, truncated on the USA album. You older Crimson fans know of what I speak. But the real star here is Read more

Not only is the performance wrought with tension, which means in this case the musicians are paying attention to each other, but the recording sounds as if the band is playing right in front of you in a small Read more

Just purchased this lovely little sucker today and cannot get enough of it. Crimson are in super-fine form at this Kokusai Hall show. The playing is extremely tight, with a very special aura of magic encircling Read more

OMG ! How many germs like that are still hidden in the DGM archives ? Obviously, this one could have been included in the last reissue of the "In The Court Of The Crimson King" Read more

Now this is indeed lovely in every way--including the recording quality, and the mix!
I would say itís Crimso ícKíaraoke time, but Ianís flute soloing is too beautiful to sing over here: this definitely works as an (alternate) instrumental Read more

No disrespect to the frequently amazing Stormy Mondays, but this is amazing. *sctratches head* Such a strong musical feel, I canít describe it better than that...

Inspired by this track, I listened for Lizard once more time, and actually heard this piano track in the final mix. The sound is weakened several times, but is still recognizable (tune your ears to these "thrakking" chords and find Read more

This could easily have been part of the 1995 Thrak improvs or even some of the ConstruKction of Light 2000 improvs.
