Scary Good! March 24, 2008
Written by syncopatico
The beautifully bizarre nature of this piece takes on new significance with the contributions of only the four-man core Lizard band present on this fledgling Cirkus! Gordoís maniacal mumblings provide some of this lovely dislocation, but Mr. Haskellís (under-rated) superb full-toned bass playing benefits from this barer context. The drum takes for this record remain a force of nature as always! Melís appropriately spine-tingling soprano solo before the pause before the last verses also takes on new menace heard in this ístripped downí setting. And this even-more-elongated pause becomes effectively even creepier by emphasizing what is missing! And what of the composer? He gets to be heard here as one-man orchestra, displaying a younger and wilder exuberance of full-on mellotron before his modesty or producerís ímindsetí called upon further orchestral additions.
What a joyful dread is heard!
Perhaps this is a glimpse or maybe an extreme taste of what the core Lizard quartet might have sounded like live?
(Bring on the early "Indoor Games" or maybe "Prince Rupert..." before or in-the-early-rehearsal stages with Jon Anderson!)

Im not entierly sure if its apropos to mention a title bootleg cd of this on DGMís guestbook, well anyway an all audience recording cd of June 6, 1974 was named "Improvisitors"... rather clever...

Itís curious to me, as it should be to anyone, to see a 2 minute Easy Money followed by a long improv. Why do they separate this one as a separate and re-titled improv instead of just billing it as Read more

I understand why some people prefer the edit of "Asbury Park". However, it sounds like after the USA cut ends it goes into an entirely different improv, as if itís 2 different attempts, all within the same Read more
