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 didnít expect enjoying this one as much as I did. I loved the album when it came out but it has since gotten less airplay than the following KCounterparts (Thrak Attack & ProjeKcts) that I love for their improvisationnal Read more

Iím not ashamed to say that when Thrak hit the retailers in 1995 and I purchased my copy I didnít buy in to what I was hearing. Sometimes what we are seeking internally, perhaps even spiritually is not aligned Read more

15 years after this concert I recall this concert as my 2nd Crim-Concert (the year before I was in Stuttgart-Liederhalle), and I remember how it "rocked". As a Billy-B-fan I was first shocked when I saw some yellow Tama-drums built Read more

I am glad to see that my boot of December 9, 1981 made it to the official bootleg series. When the Japanese tour came out in August, I was surprise to learn in Sid comments that no recording of December Read more
