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.

The sound quality of this download is outstanding, despite a few buried guitar lines. The performance is loose yet driving, and it sounds like theyíre having Read more

For my 18 year old son and me, this concert was a culmination of our pursuit of the Crimson King. This past year, we saw Pat with TU opening for Tool, Gavin with Porcupine Tree, Ade with his Power Trio Read more

One of the best, if not the better archive of The Mighty Crim in 1973, this show is marked by the full energy that it has.
Itís clear that the band was in full form that night, Read more
|Not So Great Recording Sat., Aug 23, 2008|

Iím sure it was a lot more fun in person with big waves of electric noise hitting people. On this, which sounds like a soundboard recording, as per usual for those, thereís not much energy, the drum sound is unappealing, Read more

I have seen Crimson every show since 1974. The two shows in Philly were the best I have ever seen/heard. If you were not one of the lucky few to catch them on this abreviated tour, at least this will Read more

Under-rehearsed & sloppy. The lack of synergy between Belew & Fripp came as a complete surprise, as did hearing TLev struggle with Treyís parts, particularly on ConstruKction of Read more
