Robert Frippís name appeared on the marquee of this chain record store for about a week, and I was shocked. I attended the concert on time and the store was already thoroughly packed. So I had to stand in the back, and since it was a store floor after all, it was hard to see. Also Mr. Fripp is relatively short in stature so that made it worse.
Mr. Fripp began with a surprisingly lengthy unamplified spoken preamble which was very difficult to make out, and audience members were shouting out from time to time with, "Microphone! Canít hear you!" etc. One thing I recall him saying which surprised me was a comment on digital sampling and saying how wonderful it was that now we could use practically any sound in any manner, and he gave the example of using a door slam as a drumbeat. Disregarding the audienceís outbursts, Mr. Fripp spoke in a very quiet manner. He also mentioned something about the performerís limited obligation to the audience, the "vampiric" relationship, and a prohibition on recording devices, since they diminish the possibilities of the performance. With much urgency, someone finally appeared with a mic on a mic-stand and after weaving through the audience, placed it in front of Mr. Fripp. Whereby, Mr. Fripp immediately concluded his monologue and began his guitar solo with Revox machine.
When that was done, Mr. Fripp stopped, rewound the tape, gave a brief description of the intention of the following overdubbed improvisation, and then proceeded with a rather scalding performance over top the previous foundation.
Quite soon after the performance I was obligated to leave for some reason that I donít recall. I was quite overwhelmed by the performance.
In the photo, you can see a "corn plant" which is a popular ornamental plant, and also large paper which was hung for the performance, over the enormous plate glass windows of the store. The store has changed hands multiple times, but still stands at 1500 E Sunrise BLVD.

Another stunning, resonant edition of Frippertronics. I hope they keep them coming. There were 2 Toronto shows at the Bathurst St Theatre, including one where Fripp played a bit of Purple Haze by the late great Jimi Hendrix, that I Read more

The VDrum-triggered bass line is right out of the March 25, 1999 performance by ProjeKct Three. I believe it was released as the second track on Masque, and the whole show became a KCCC Read more

There seems to be a bubbling enthusiasm throughout the set, T Lev positively bouncing out those notes during Thela before Bobby Willcox comes to the fore and itís a welcome addition to my double-trio Read more

Really together performance right from the top, just as the description says. Mix begins heavier on guitars than drums, which makes Tony & Treyís parts especially audible -- just the sort of emphasis appreciated when hearing a string Read more

Not that any of us should need an incentive to help others, but thanks to Robert and the guys for providing this great incentive to contribute. Having had financial setbacks these past few years, I am particular about purchasing recordings Read more

This show demonstrates that this lineup was probably THE premier band of the 70s, just as the original lineup was probably the premier band of the 60s. Yes, the lyric Read more
