Robert Fripp’s performance was indeed a little winded by the Roland Guitar Synth this night. There are two tunable distortion synths plus a master tuner which are all rotary operated knobs and therefore very easy to disturb on a dark stage. The GR300 synthesizer is not midi controlled, certainly not in 1982 and my own unit has numerous other eccentricities.
This was also my first KC gig some time after 3 evenings watching the incredible League of Gentlemen - at all of which Mr Fripp was most approachable.
All in, King Crimson played fabulous music, with a slight flounder during Sheltering Sky. I had no regrets over pawning my twelve gear racing bike to afford the ticket.
Now - Albert Hall 1995 is something else again.

If there is such a thing as a perfect electric guitar sound, it has to be that of Fripp’s sustained overdrive. Love it....just plain love it.

I will remake the track listing and add a track no. to Walking On Air Dub.

My favorite show of that era. This show is funny, especially creative, and the sound quality is pleasant to listen to and not as digitally in your face as some of the later Crim Read more

Robert begins this Soundscape, one of the best currently available, with a meditative piece called “Paradise Lost”. We have seen this title before, but usually with an accompanying “Paradise Read more
