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.

Finally, another show from the Fall 2003 tour, until now represented only by the incomparable Kingston concert. Really like PMís percussion/sample interludes here -- nice atmospheres. I could take a lot more of this kind of Read more

Iím puzzled by the previous reviewerís complaint of "distortion in the drum beats" -- I donít hear any distortion through my speakers (headphones either). Maybe the reviewerís speakers were blown, or he just isnít used to the sound of Read more

This is definitely my favourite period of Soundscapes. And although some prefer the latest Churchscapes as more accessible and true, there is something positive about them as they lack those moving and dark timbres and emotions of That Read more

This is a very nice version of Hope. The Bridge Between is one of my favorite records and this piece is a wonderful example of what Trey Gunn brought to the mix that eventually became the Double Trio version Read more

Iím surprised we only have a bootleg cassette source for that one. Why ? Because that show was professionally recorded. It was part of the "Musicorama" concerts, broadcasted in France every sunday night by a radio (Europe 1), and I Read more
