Robert Fripp’s performance was indeed a little winded by the Roland Guitar Synth this night. There are two tunable distortion synths plus a master tuner which are all rotary operated knobs and therefore very easy to disturb on a dark stage. The GR300 synthesizer is not midi controlled, certainly not in 1982 and my own unit has numerous other eccentricities.
This was also my first KC gig some time after 3 evenings watching the incredible League of Gentlemen - at all of which Mr Fripp was most approachable.
All in, King Crimson played fabulous music, with a slight flounder during Sheltering Sky. I had no regrets over pawning my twelve gear racing bike to afford the ticket.
Now - Albert Hall 1995 is something else again.

Fantastic! I always was disappointed that the electronica version of KC never materialized. In the mid 90s that was really the scene that was happening. So vibrant and intelligent, world music, drum and bass, disco, techno all coming Read more

Yes it’ spooky, it is also imperative and just awesome. Must have this in the car - it reminds me a little of those excellent Sleepless remixes. Is there any more of this Read more

This is the finest performance I think I have from the 80’s four piece. The band seemed to change between Beat and TOAPP yet here, there are breathtaking versions of all of my favourites from the time, Howler, Read more

This is like a long dark night followed by an stunning sunrise, during that night you lost something, but in the daytime you forget what it was. Like in a dream, with its own reality, most things can be Read more

Pity this was never used ! Great chords and real sense of urgency in there. LOG would have been a perfect vehicle...moreso than the 81 KC I think as it has that frantic NYC punk influence that was most Read more
