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.

Fantastic! I always was disappointed that the electronica version of KC never materialized. In the mid 90s that was really the scene that was happening. So vibrant and intelligent, world music, drum and bass, disco, techno all coming Read more

Yes it’ spooky, it is also imperative and just awesome. Must have this in the car - it reminds me a little of those excellent Sleepless remixes. Is there any more of this Read more

This is the finest performance I think I have from the 80’s four piece. The band seemed to change between Beat and TOAPP yet here, there are breathtaking versions of all of my favourites from the time, Howler, Read more

Thank you for making another show I was attending available for download (after Montreux a couple of weeks ago). The show was really excellent, even the venue is neither comfortable, nor has a good reputation for acoustics in the Frankfurt Read more
