Sustaining! March 19, 2012
Written by syncopatico
Concurring heartily with previous reviews! I’ve 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 haven’t quite understood all the hubbub over the new Steven Wilson mix enabling this album to be heard clearly and spatially ’correct’ 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 Rupert’s Lament (obviously we DGM visitors have only heard this alternate and the master so far of course). This particular alternate solo sounds slightly ’busier’ 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.

mixed feelings about this show. the content is notable but the quality of the recording is so-so. the band sounds so far away I have so many of the better 73-74 releases recording-wise and rather hear them, like Glasgow Read more

Hmm. The music hear is amongst the best of the occasional series, with improvisations making up a higher percentage of the running time than usual. The band are on cracking form fairly soon after Jamie’s departure although the whole show Read more

OK, as someone who already owns all the associated studio albums from this period, the 4 CD Great Deceiver box set, the 11/10/72, 11/25/72, 3/20/74, 6/29/74, 10/6/73, 10/23/73 downloads, the Live in Kassel and Live in Mainz CDs, the Read more

It’s great to see the Spring 73 tour get its due. The band is on fire and the amount of improvs is a pleasant surprise having only been exposed to the US shows that offer a compressed set Read more

Many thanks for having brought it to light for us to enjoy.
Greg Lake vocals are sensitive, delicate, evocative, they fit so well with this moving and melanchonic Read more

This show is perfect...
Larks’ was a great and succesful album with a blasting line-up and, to show this the tour was excellent...
This show shows the true Larks’ line-up (except Muir) spirit with the possibly best Larks’ Tongues In Aspic - Read more

I’ve always loved this song. Hearing it in this early form makes me want to listen to the Islands album again. I can see how the drum pattern seems to distract from the flowing of the strings and the soaring Read more

This show was amazing... my favorite performance of the Crim I’ve seen. I’d love to see this as a KCCC release, but would take a download as well. This deserves to see the light of day for many reasons, not Read more
