DGM's tribute to the mighty bass guitarist that was John Wetton. Compiled from a Fripp, Wetton and Collins session recorded prior to the making of Exposure, this is quite easily the best jazz-rock power trio that never existed, with the famous Wetton crunching bass well to the fore. Astonishing to think that John made his huge contribution to...

Heroes. King Crimson performed Heroes at the Admiralspalast in Berlin as a celebration, a remembrancing and an homage. The concert was thirty-nine years and one month after the original sessions at the Hansa Tonstudio overlooking the Berlin Wall. This is released in the Fortieth Anniversary year. Robert Fripp Wednesday 22nd. February, 2017;...

Hot off the mixing desk from King Crimson’s friends and family show, this powerful reading of Cirkus benefits from a generous amount of keyboards provided here by both Jeremy Stacey and Bill Rieflin. Against those swirling strings and bulldozing brass Jakko can be heard darting about the fretboard and Mel Collins wails and growls like a barely...

What do you want from Starless? Opinions will differ but here’s the achingly beautiful melody, the yearning vocal, a building tension, and that driving, twisting blowing section all leading into a hair-raising conclusion to help you answer that question. A dramatic version from the first night of the tour proper.

Taken from the first night at Oakland, listen to this with your eyes closed. Savour it. As they work through the intricate rhythmic pathways through this percussive landscape you’d never really know that it’s the work of three musicians. That’s kind of the point, really; one drummer in three bodies.

If any song in the KC repertoire benefits from the expanded line-up and the additional texture it brings, it’s this venerable old warhorse. With an extra pair of hands at the keyboards, we can now hear the lines originally added by Ian McDonald on a Baldwin electric harpsichord back in 1969, restored and bringing an extra spring and sparkle to...

It’s interesting to hear the small but significant shifts in this arrangement of a song that’s been in active service on the Crimson setlist for well over 35 years. Behind the heavy machinery of the guitar and the combined advance of the drums, the newly added Mellotron lines increases the humidity of this already-hot number.

Tony Levin will candidly admit that the parts he’s required to tackle on this piece, written by Trey Gunn, represent some of the most challenging Stick playing of his entire career. Coming second in the set at Denver means he doesn’t have a lot of time to get his fingers warmed up. But hey, at least then it’s out of the way and he can...

The middle section of The Letters is always a special moment in the KC setlist. Led by Mel’s dark, soulful baritone sax a different sonic space opens itself for exploration, briefly abandoning the rhythmic density and gravity exerted in other numbers. Something magical happens here and little wonder Minneapolis cheers as it floats past them...

Larks’ Tongues In Aspic Part I has always grabbed listeners by the lapels, swung them around a bit and then stomped them flat. So it should perhaps be no surprise that this supercharged version not only impresses but takes things to another level garnering applause from punters as the Crims move through the transitions of this most mighty...
