Entry, First Avenue, Minneapolis June 20, 1984
Written by Mark Newstrom
The concert was preceded by various videos, one of which was Andy Summers and Robert Fripp performing (?) from "I Advance Masked." The ballerinas were lovely and lithe, I can't say anything about the guitarists.
The concert was pure joy, including three moments seared in my memory:
Having just finished a number ("Elephant Talk" I believe), Adrian addressed the crowd:
AB: So do you like the weird stuff?
Aud: YEA, applause, etc.
AB: Well I do too..
At this point, AB makes another strange guitar noise, but his reaction is total dismay; not the sound he expected. He then realizes he's been had, and looks over to see RF almost falling off his stool trying to contain himself.
AB: That's Fripp 3, Belew 2... (audience erupts laughing and clapping)
Moment B) Robert absolutely shredding the guitar/violin solo section in "Lark's Tongues in Aspic, part II." Certainly seemed that "the Muse had descended."
Moment C) no flashes, a receptive audience, Robert stays on with the band at the end. We all salute each other. . .

A truly excellent performance this evening in Mestre to Venice.
The energy that emanates the band is really to overwhelming, especially on tracks, Dinosaur, BBOOM and THRAK .. Five stars are few! :)
Thank you DGM!

What an excellent set from the Beat Generation Crimson. As always, providence dictates that the best of the gigs is incomplete. What remains has indeed been wonderfully restored and presented and we have some tremendous performances of Sheltering Sky, Thela, Read more

For years the only Frippertronic releases were confined to just a few albums. Of course a few more were made available here over the last couple years- but Iím really excited about the last 2 recordings being made available Read more

Itís a real tragedy that this performance is incomplete (hence the missing star), ícause itís a blinder ! Alex Mundy has done sterling job mixing this and the sound is pristine and Read more

We perched on the steps of the church and listened to Robert perform from there, I forget if we were too broke to get in or it was sold out. Not the best part of town back then, but being Read more

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 Read more

This show was my first encounter to the Crims!! And so it was kind of an awakening for me! A friend of mine and true KC-admirer (he is a hobby-drummer) took me to the show with words like "to fully Read more

Of all the official DGM Frippertronics shows released so far (Nov. 24, 2010) this is my favorite. The loops are wonderfully engaging. The solos are sublime. The sound quality is five-star Read more
