Robert Frippís performance was indeed a little winded by the Roland Guitar Synth this night. There are two tunable distortion synths plus a master tuner which are all rotary operated knobs and therefore very easy to disturb on a dark stage. The GR300 synthesizer is not midi controlled, certainly not in 1982 and my own unit has numerous other eccentricities.
This was also my first KC gig some time after 3 evenings watching the incredible League of Gentlemen - at all of which Mr Fripp was most approachable.
All in, King Crimson played fabulous music, with a slight flounder during Sheltering Sky. I had no regrets over pawning my twelve gear racing bike to afford the ticket.
Now - Albert Hall 1995 is something else again.

The band are on oN ON for this night. The show starts with a 25 minute long soundscape by Mr. Fripp that perhaps should be considered a first set and then the band kicks Read more

The recording is an audience tape and so the fidelity is not all that good. Though everything is clear, there is some distortion on some of the louder passages and the microphone gets "handled" at some points which adds to Read more
