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.

This one is definitely a tasty one. If youíre not already smiling from ear to ear 20 seconds before it ends, you will after.

The final 30 seconds was a really appreciated surpise!
Was it an Adrianís idea?
Or it was Robert to start the arpeggio with Adrian catching the chance?

|A 1984 KC story Tue., Dec 9, 2008|
Posted by: JPrisco
It was 1984, and New Wave was king of the airwaves, so "Sleepless" had gotten some fair coverage on the radio station dedicated to that genre. Consequently the Berkeley Greek Theater was about half-full of pastel-hued princesses and Read more
