DGM Live

Friars at the Waterside Theatre Aylesbury U.K.

Taken from the official first night of the European tour, “It’s the blues but not as we know it, Jim.” A typical off-kilter Crimson view of things takes a dainty tiptoe between sparkling Beatlesy fills, sloping sax lines and thunderous Ladies Of The Road-style rock ‘n’rolling. Between the tumbling drums and lurching beat, Fripp and Collins bowl along throwing out some smart concise soloing that’s not without a touch of humour. Suitable grounds for a big grin as far as these ears are concerned.

Suitably Satisfying
The song, as debuted properly in the "Radical Action..." boxset, packs a 7-headed wallop, stemming from clever blues-folk guitar phrasing & even more clever lyrics. This version edges out that original cut on the same terms; mostly due to the unique mix presented, reminiscent of that of "Live In Toronto" and the quality of the tandem drums. It also contains one of Fripp's best solos in the current incarnation of the band, suitably iconic.

A new classic
Wow, this is a terrific song. Great lyrics with clever phrasing and arrangements.

Steamy Love Letters
For allowing me the next best thing to a Hot Date nowadays - a virtual "8-way" with my favourite septuacranial(?!) Beast, thank you. Most generous. Smiles and tingles.
