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.

Imho, i think that maybe every single musical excerpt of the entire KC body of work is essential for every KC fan and appreciator ... i remember that I thought exactly the same way back in late 1972 Read more

What the setlist doesnít show is that "One Time" through "Elephant Talk" is played without pause, as if one big medley -- very effective. The mix is typically strong on separation, drums and vocals, making it easy to appreciate Patís Read more

Before there was The Blue Man Group, there was Bruford, and it takes 3 Blues to come close to 1 Bru.

This piece raises the hairs on the back of my neck even during daylight. Frightening, deep and dark Fripp mood with a slithery metallic Pat on top. Mighty powerful.
