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.

Absolutely fascinating stuff hearing the drums in your face and with great detail like this! I was just saying on Facebook that though I can sympathise with Mike’s view, the sound of the drums helped give KC69 a Read more

This is a record I’ve been coming back to often over the last few months, largely because it’s so free-flowing and exploratory. There is a lot of long, sorrowful sweeps here, but they’re not intense - they come and go Read more

This is a wonderful-sounding recording of a performance from a very experimental period in soundscapes. With its sparser tones and a prominence of piano synth notes, it’s a rather stark, minimalist, but still wonderfully moody Read more

I have downloaded quite a few soundscapes and i think this one is quite lovely, sort of a quiet space inbetween the churchscapes, the darker soundscapes earlier in the 1990s and even a little of the guitar timbre of no Read more

I’ve been enjoying these samples and freebies over the last few years, and this download is piquing my interest in the entire album. I love the strings and harmonized vocals.

… Wonderfully... Remarkably...
Crimheads often delve in counterfactual history and muse about such topics as “What if the ’69 band stayed together and did another album?” or “What if Ian Mac rejoined the band after Red and Crim Read more

I came to see King Crimson (for the first time) and left fulfilled. They were touring on the strength of "Starless and Bible Black." Robin Trower, the opening act, was really solid, too, especially his fine (now late) singer, Jame Read more

There is a strange eccentricity about LOG that has me smiling on the greyest of days and this collection is no exception. Inductive Resonance with its highly effusive c minor hookline and astonishingly fast middle section is probably the Read more

While I enjoyed the music and couldn’t stop myself from playing ’spot the theme’ the thing that surprised me about this excerpt was how it made me laugh. There’s a wonderful energy between T-Lev and Trey on show Read more
