TCOL/Projekct X Playlist
A few years ago, on this forum, someone posted a playlist combiningTCOL & Heaven and Earth. I've tried to search for it with no success. Any pointers welcome.

Radical Action - Blu Ray - No front center channel in DTS mix and DVD 5.1 mix?
Not sure if this is the place to address this but I finally got around to listening to the Blu Ray DTS mix for Radical Action. There is nothing coming through the front center channel. The sound is coming through via the subwoofer and the other front and rear speakers. At first, I thought my front speaker wires were disconnected, but that was not the case. It's the same for the 5.1 mix on the DVD. Has anyone else experienced this or am I missing something? Is it like this?

Alex Mundy replied:

A reply from Chris Porter, who, as you may well know, is now the front of house mixer for King Crimson, and also the mixing engineer of Radical Action. Here is what Chris had to say :- The center channel thing is a choice. I find, with music, that using the center channel gives too much emphasis to certain elements of the mix. So I mix to create a virtual center resultant from the front Left and Right components. This technique translates better to soundbar systems as well.

Wetton-era tour bundles
Hi - Are there any Wetton-era tour bundles hiding somewhere? Or are all the shows individual downloads? Thanks.

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Tony, These are all individual at the moment. Best Alex

Video Downloads
I saw roughly a month ago a news item announcing Video downloads, but have seen anything else mentioned about it? When will this begin?

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Danny, This is still a work in progress, but the intention is there. Best Alex

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Ernest, Thanks for pointing this out to us. I have now uploaded Larks' III. It's the programme, it doesn't like the ' in words, a bug that needs squashing. Best Alex

Not Bad but Not Great
A bit rough with he audience talk and a bit muddy sound due to the source. Great historical piece from the tour, though.

Radically Unseated
Heraclitus states, “All things come into being by conflict of opposites, and the sum of things (“The Whole”) flows like a stream.” This is King Crimson in 2016. Sheerly masterful, the epitome of virtuosity, and the contribution of a lifetime: King Crimson is King Crimson is King Crimson. Radical Action to Unseat the Hold of Monkey Mind is a virtual studio album and edification of the endless inner knot as a whole that has entwined generations into the fold for almost half a century now. David Singleton’s flawless mix down and representation of the live stage presence is delivered in syncretic, jubilant, and generous spirit. The Vicar, with attention to every detail, bestows a well-mastered release that delivers us unto King Crimson in the purest sonic clarity - a clarity unexplored until now. The DGM Audio Quality becomes apart of the virtual studio album’s essence and can no longer be envisaged in any other way. History has been made and what a bright future lies ahead! The virtuosity explicated in good will by Robert Fripp, Jakko Jakszyk, Tony Levin, Mel Collins, Pat Mastellotto, Bill Rieflin, and Gavin Harrison distills the enterprise of the ProjeKcts, days of Discipline, and the origin story - In the Court of the Crimson King - as a new index of alchemical possibilities. A keen listener can hear the range of distinct elements from all eras of King Crimson in this 2016 recording. Alas, the inner knot is revealed to have no beginning and no end. King Crimson captures the eternal moment perfectly in the clinches of live performance. Radical Action to Unseat the Hold of Monkey Mind is a true gift to nostalgists of every era, but even more so to listeners who are radically unseated by King Crimson. Be advised: “Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers.” So please enjoy with ears wide open and as a (wo)man with an open heart!

This is fire.
What a good download. This is an audience recording which sounds as good as I can imagine any bootleg sounding. The performance has an amazing levity, humor and lightness of touch, although "Pictures of a City" shows early on they can sound heavy when it is required. One of the best "Formentera Lady"s around, leading into a vicious "Sailor's Tale", now approaching its final form but still bearing a flute solo. "The Letters", as other reviewers have stated, is an extraordinary performance... Really, I feel I could go track by track heaping praise. This is a fine download. If you love this band, you'll be happy to own it.

Exactly!
We're anxiously waiting. I was at this concert, it was the first Crimson show in my life. The band was on fire, although the venue is simply unable for a band with three drummers. Even so I still cannot forget the LTIA 1, the Easy Money et cetera. Anyway, thank you!

The Beginning is Visible
In this performance it seems like the guys are playing it safe, getting the hang of the touring thing again. There are a few moments where various players totally lose the plot, but at the same time, this is some of the hardest music ever written and performed. Those few moments are overshadowed by glittering moments of greatness. Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream is especially funky. Eighties tunes like Neurotica and Sleepless are extra shiny with Trey Gunn’s thick coat of glossy goodness added to the mix, and his parts come through very well in this recording. When the band comes out for the encores and Adrian says, “This is the first time we’ve played this song in 22 years,” the hairs on the back of the neck prickle with anticipation. And when the first chord of Schizoid Man descends, the body shivers with goosebumps of delight. Feisty versions of VROOOM and LTIA II top off this splendid return of KC.
