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.

Sid is correct to draw comparisons to Garbarek and his ilk when describing this short-but-sweet download. Itís interesting how these notes and phrases, once isolated from their source material, almost begin to take on a life Read more

there is a mistake in the track listing. What is listed as "Walk Donít Run" is actually "Pipeline."

The sonic quality of this recording is outstanding. It seems though that the time of the perfomance prevented music form further developing itself as the improvisations end quite suddenly. That didnít spoiled their Read more

...and you can hear the (very) final chords which are a kind of homage to Tango. Remember that KC reincarnated in Buenos Aires in 1994...
