Sustaining! March 19, 2012
Written by syncopatico
Concurring heartily with previous reviews! Iíve 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 havenít quite understood all the hubbub over the new Steven Wilson mix enabling this album to be heard clearly and spatially ícorrectí 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 Rupertís Lament (obviously we DGM visitors have only heard this alternate and the master so far of course). This particular alternate solo sounds slightly íbusierí 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.

Always loved Billís chosen sounds on the Simmons electronic drumkit.

I too am a fellow musician and itís interesting to hear how other musicians develope their pieces by working one on one.

Iím more familiar with the 1970 to 1974 version of King Crimson than I am with this line up but I bought this CD based on what I read about the show and I must say Iím quite Read more

Sounds REALLLY good. Like this version better w/o vocals. Nothing against Belew as Iíve never understood the people who question his part in the band at all. I just prefer instrumental music Read more

This piece has just the right amount of variation from the finished music track to make it essential. Perhaps this could have been performed on stage sans vocals for simplicityís sake a la Read more

Wonderful tidbit of KC, just wondering what Peter Sinfield would say? The lyrics to his songs are astonishing to me, the vocals wonderfully soft if anyone knows what his top choice for vocals, would be interesting to Read more

I say "surprisingly" not because I expect these fellows to underachieve, but because Iíve seen track listings very similar to this for many years now. So, with some of the other mixed reviews in mind, I felt a little trepidation Read more
