18 July 1985
One year and a week after King Crimson had played its final gig in Montreal, Fripp undertook a short tour of in-store performances of record stores in Liverpool, York and London, with a couple of promotional appearances on local Radio.
Unlike his previous solo outings, here he’s abandoned his trusty Revox tape recorders and opted for an Electro-Harmonix Memory Man providing him with a 16 second delay to play with.
There’s a touching vulnerability to this performance for Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio, where the Roland guitar synthesiser settings have a tremolo effect that sounds almost koto-like. A delicate, fragile improvisation with a rhapsodic flurry in the final ten minutes.
