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.

I was there for this show, at the Casino. I took a bus by myself from north Jersey. It was general admission, with no seating on the ground floor. Though at the front end of the line, I opted for Read more

Thanks for yet another fascinating glimpse from the old multitracks. Keith is in pretty fiery demonic form here!

This is a wonderful version of an often overlooked KC song. I think I may prefer this over the already excellent original version.
Thank you Mr Stormy!

Love this show. Missing here is the bit near the end which sounds like an overenthusiastic/ stroppy SDSU official cut the power and Ade telling the audience "We came here to play for you, and play we will" (Iím paraphrasing Read more

Thank you very much for this little KC gem. This Monday rendez-vous is always a pleasure. As we mostly had 1969-1972 or post 1977 material so far, I hope this one is the beginning of a 1973-1974 Crimson Read more
