Wessex Studios Cat food And Groon

"Catfood" and "Groon" Wessex studio sessions 3rd February 1970.

This will form part of a bundle of previously unreleased recordings from the "In the Wake of Poseidon" studio sessions at Wessex Studios in early 1970. The recordings are presented exactly as they appear on the original multitracks, engineered by Robin Thompson, with consecutive takes on each reel running seamlessly.

All the original studio sessions from 1970 are being made available by download in 2020 to satisfy recent changes to copyright laws: All recordings must be released within the fiftieth year of their recording in order to continue to enjoy copyright protection. So these have been released to the DGMLive faithful – and are thus protected!

This download gives us a rare opportunity to hear Giles, Giles and Fripp play sixteen consecutive takes of the weird little Fripp composition "Groon". The first few takes are the most varied; the trio tries out different moods and lines during the middle section. Half a dozen takes later, the structure is mostly set and the following takes are mostly about tightening it up by small degrees. To be perfectly honest, I would probably not be able to tell most of these takes apart, but I still enjoyed listening to them. Cat Food's structure does not change noticeably over the various takes, but we have an opportunity to hear Keith Tippett's astounding piano with great clarity, as well as Robert playing the vocal melody on electric guitar as a guide.

CD artwork ?
Thanks very much for this. It would be great to have a full printable CD Artwork for this, like with most other Recordings here, not just a front cover. :-)
