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.

Maybe the best documented performance by this lineup in 1972. Exceptional performances of Pictures & Schizoid Man. The audience really gets into it too; theyíre especially appreciative of Mel. The audio isnít great, but itís Read more

I agree, this should have been included with Power to believe which for me is a bit to sterile and polished. Perhaps the 30th anniversary version of that album available in HD hologramic 32 bit / 192 KHz sampling Read more

This wouldíve been the best thing on TPTB. And it does sound like Levin indeed.

A sparkling performance which would have only improved TPTB, follows in the feetstep of the title track of TCOL with its walking bass and blistering guitar.
