Early 2001 Shows?
I’ve recently become fascinated by the 12th and Porter shows from the start of the 2001 tour- it’s a real treat to hear both the embryonic stages of developing material like Facts of Life (Response to Stimuli may actually be more compelling in its more enigmatic form), Potato Pie (er, Krimson Blue that is), and Virtuous Circle as well as slightly peculiar and experimental renditions of older material. Are there any more shows in the archive from this transitional period that are likely to be added at some point? (Perhaps once the undoubtedly colossal task of assembling the 2008 tour bundle is complete?)

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Ned, In the fullness of time the shows from 2001 that are in the archive will appear on the site. If my maths is correct,(and they are all present) that leaves 18 shows from 51.

The Elements
Many thanks to both Mr. Stormy and Hugh The Hero (assuming he compiled the artwork) for the Elements downloads!

Spotify effect
I am sure you have statistics about this, but I would like to add some anecdotal information. I teach high school somewhere in NYC over 30 years. For years my students have asked me, "What kind of music do you like, did you ever go to concerts, etc." My answer always would include my favorite music, King Crimson, which would invariably lead to the response, "Who?" Sometimes I would play some while doing group work in the background. Lately a few of my students have begun talking to me about specific Crimson albums and songs, one young man said he loves Discipline, another ordered Larks Tongue on vinyl and they sent him Starless and Bible Black instead. A young lady saw my Schizoid Man sticker on my desk and said, "I love King Crimson". I call this "The Spotify Effect"! I will fill all of them in on your upcoming concert schedule!

Mexico and compadres from all the world
In the new download from 2003 there's a misspelling and Larks tongues in Aspic is Larks tongues in Asia (perhaps a local delicacy?) And... Where the family and Friends concerts of last tour where recorded? Is there any plan of realising them? I found the very best version of Neurotica, Brrathless, Cadence and Cascade and other songs thanks to the downloads of those concerts, so I'm exited for what could be found in the new ones.

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Gustavo, The Spelling has been corrected, thank you. Audio from the F&F shows from the last tour won't be released at this moment in time. BUT I am going back to 2015 in the near future and putting up a single track for each show from that tour.

Level 5
I am listening to Level 5 and it is a work of art, it could be Larks' Tongues In Aspic part 5, I listen to it, and I listen to it, it is a heavy work as I like it, I feel chills, good work, greetings.

Double Duo shows
Thank you for putting the 2003 bundle up for download! So good to finally have these. I'm hoping you'll get a chance to make available the rest of the Double Duo performances from 2001 & 2003

THRAK wih some sugar on it, please.
Great concert, I specially like how all the soft songs are played after a heavy one. As good if not better than any of the ones included in the THRAK box set.

Waited 46 years to hear this . . .
This was to have been my first ever Crimson gig. A bunch of us were supposed to make the trip through to Glasgow - and I can't remember why it didn't happen. I was aware of the Crims before LTIA but when those guitar chords blasted in at around 3 minutes 40 during LTIA part one on the studio album - "WOOAH! What the hell is this!" I was instantly hooked - and still am. So to finally hear the gig after all this time - well, I have been blown away all over again! Remarkable sound quality and well worth buying if you love LTIA.

Impecable
Impresionante concierto, he visto muchos grupos de Rock pero los dos de Crimson que vi son algo mágico, especial.

The Source for The Power To Believe IV
After some careful listening to this show and comparing, I’ve discovered the credits listed in the original TPTB booklet (and indeed even that of the new Heaven & Earth box set) have gotten the date wrong for the scapes that make up TPTB IV. It does in fact not come from the 7th, but rather the day before, this show. Starting from around 11-12 minutes into Improv VIII and especially after a careful listen to TPTB IV, it becomes very plainly obvious that this show is the source (meaning someone at DGM has gotten the date wrong in various booklets for nearly 20 years now). Aside from that, fantastic output, always been a dream of mine to eventually hear the full unedited soundscape it was sourced from.

This is for everyone that came last time
What I recall from this show was Adrian saying, ''This is for everyone that came last time,'' or something to that effect. KC played an extra long set to make up for the fact that lightning hit a transformer the previous year just before the show and it was cancelled.

What was old is new again.
I was already well familiar with Frippertronics when I made an exciting vinyl purchase at Amoeba records in San Francisco back in 2008, and my mind was further blown. Judging by the packing, I was hoping to slide open the sleeve and see an EG "for promotional purposes only" sticker. But I had a bootleg. Cheers for the opportunity to purchase an official, definitive copy. What fun.
