Robert Frippís name appeared on the marquee of this chain record store for about a week, and I was shocked. I attended the concert on time and the store was already thoroughly packed. So I had to stand in the back, and since it was a store floor after all, it was hard to see. Also Mr. Fripp is relatively short in stature so that made it worse.
Mr. Fripp began with a surprisingly lengthy unamplified spoken preamble which was very difficult to make out, and audience members were shouting out from time to time with, "Microphone! Canít hear you!" etc. One thing I recall him saying which surprised me was a comment on digital sampling and saying how wonderful it was that now we could use practically any sound in any manner, and he gave the example of using a door slam as a drumbeat. Disregarding the audienceís outbursts, Mr. Fripp spoke in a very quiet manner. He also mentioned something about the performerís limited obligation to the audience, the "vampiric" relationship, and a prohibition on recording devices, since they diminish the possibilities of the performance. With much urgency, someone finally appeared with a mic on a mic-stand and after weaving through the audience, placed it in front of Mr. Fripp. Whereby, Mr. Fripp immediately concluded his monologue and began his guitar solo with Revox machine.
When that was done, Mr. Fripp stopped, rewound the tape, gave a brief description of the intention of the following overdubbed improvisation, and then proceeded with a rather scalding performance over top the previous foundation.
Quite soon after the performance I was obligated to leave for some reason that I donít recall. I was quite overwhelmed by the performance.
In the photo, you can see a "corn plant" which is a popular ornamental plant, and also large paper which was hung for the performance, over the enormous plate glass windows of the store. The store has changed hands multiple times, but still stands at 1500 E Sunrise BLVD.

The name of the venue where the soundscape was recorded is the PNC Bank Arts Center, in Holmdel, NJ. I was fortunate to attend the show, and submitted a review to ET.

By the time Crimson had arrived in Oklahoma you feel that David Cross had raised the white flag and surrendered! The sound had become very metallic and heavy and there was clearly no room for the delicate bowing of wood Read more

This is a fantastic event preserved perfectly for posterity. King Crimson are clearly having a wonderful time throughout and play some of my favourite material, fantastic versions of Sheltering Sky, FXF and Red and a classic re-telling of 21CSM, which Read more

I thought I had met my quota of Double Trio shows, but the previews hinted at a raw power behind this show. I was pleased by harder edge of this show compared to many of the í95 Double Trio Read more
