Sustaining! March 19, 2012
Written by syncopatico
Concurring heartily with previous reviews! I’ve 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 haven’t quite understood all the hubbub over the new Steven Wilson mix enabling this album to be heard clearly and spatially ’correct’ 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 Rupert’s Lament (obviously we DGM visitors have only heard this alternate and the master so far of course). This particular alternate solo sounds slightly ’busier’ 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.

No disrespect to the frequently amazing Stormy Mondays, but this is amazing. *sctratches head* Such a strong musical feel, I can’t describe it better than that...

Thank you ever so much Robert, and DGM Live staff.

Just gorgeous. I love Anne Laplantine’s work for similar reasons as I adore this, but of course her work leverages on digital cut-ups, whereas this just spills out, all in the moment, making it Read more

Beyond a doubt, this has to be the most amazing release since The Asbury Park gig. Which has now been eclipsed.
What I have heard so far is absolutely breath taking.

Inspired by this track, I listened for Lizard once more time, and actually heard this piano track in the final mix. The sound is weakened several times, but is still recognizable (tune your ears to these "thrakking" chords and find Read more

This could easily have been part of the 1995 Thrak improvs or even some of the ConstruKction of Light 2000 improvs.

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
