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.

Hello Craig, This is the entire setlist. I was at this show and Robin Trower opened, followed by KC then 10 Years After as the headliner. Funny thing is, each band’s current release on the charts reflected the exact Read more

Does anyone know why this set is so short? And why Exiles and Starless are missing? Was this set an ’opening’ set for some other band? Or is there a missing reel or Read more

There is some funny audience banter on the original bootleg recording of this concert. During the improv, a lady says, "They’re too loud!"....also, a man says, "Chuck it! Hell, chuck Read more

Thank you, this is a very good upgrade. It is great to listen to ’Fracture’ without all of the conversation. My recording of this has a brief improv before ’Fracture’. Stormy did a great job with the bootleg recording, the Read more

I was at this show and while I enjoyed it, I was, for one reason or another, disappointed that I wasn’t as overwhelmed by this gig as I had been by ’la place des arts’ show ~18 months Read more
