Larks' III into Sleepless - an alternative? A future? An alternative future? December 11, 2007
Written by avakashitar
The sound quality on this is excellent. I bet some of this was used on the master; several elements of the master appear on this. That was unusual; I thought the whole of both songs wouldíve been re-recorded; I suppose when youíre recording in a studio in the 80ís, best not to waste good takes (Iím mainly referring to the "Larkís III" portion).
This was absolutely fascinating to hear. And I can now hear why the band separated those into two distinct entities, although with a few slight changes and mutations, it couldíve been made into a third piece distinctively different from where the separate components ended up.
The "Sleepless" parts with the different basslines were intriguing. I can hear now how Tony made that leap. I wonder how many different stages the bassline went through before becoming the echofied slapfest we all know and love. And while interesting at this tempo, I like the final versionís tempo better. But hearing it like this is kind of groovy, too.
Iíve heard this album and this line-up many many times, and Iíve never imagined Iíd hear anything like this, so I wonder - did anybody else hear, near the end of it...I guess the best way to put it would be "future echoes"...of the "VROOOM" coda in there?
Iíve never ever thought of it before, especially since this line-up and the Double Trio were years apart - but somewhere around the middle of the fade-out, I started to hear "suggestions" of layers as those found in the "Coda: 475" section of "VROOOM." It didnít sound exactly like it, and I know "475" is all chromaticism and this has only a smidge of that - but I simply wonder if anyone else can hear it. I wonder if any of the band heard this as they were developing the piece. I love the Robert and Bill duet on the Champaign-Urbana sessions, and after mentally comparing the two, I can see how seeds for the Double Trio couldíve been sown even back in í83. Does anyone else hear that?
Regardless, an excellent find, and my thanks to Mr. Mundy for this. "Stormy" Mundy strikes again!

Too bad the recording of the April 28, 1974 concert is incomplete. I was in attendance that night, along with my band mates. The concert was opened by Aerosmith, which we all found to be a rather strange Read more

So loose and easy. Reminds me of the Fab Four playing a rooftop gig, just without vocals. Dig it!

This is the essence of Robert Frippís Guitar Work, for me, at least. The interlocking stuff, the complex-timed constructions, the Soundscapes, I wait (and sometimes suffer) through all of that to get the smidgen of Read more
