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. . .

Any projeKct archive stuff is just awesome. This sound quality is beyond belief and since the ProjeKct/TCOL era Crim is my fav this is just an extra special treat.

You couldn’t ask for more from a Frippertronics backing tape. It has everything you’d want...from the soothing relaxing hypnotic type to the intense riveting angry loops. From what I can gather this is exactly as the tape box Read more

I came across this after I downloaded the WMCF Sessions and am eternally grateful this moment in time was preserved, and that it is available here. Phil’s playing just ooozes excitement, seemingly just from playing with someone else Read more

I remember this as being a one-string bass guitar, not a Warr guitar. It’s my strong impression that Tony picked it up at Artichoke Music where it was given to him as a Read more

I am one of the subset of Frippertronics fans that prefers the loops without the solos and respectfully submit that nothing is missing here. Amazing you-are-there sound with the Flac download.

I would be one of those "many" who felt this was the best track on TCOL followed by FraKctured. I prefered the final version to this one til the blazing guitars began to scream about halfway through on this Read more
