Is the Introductory Soundscape missing from Travis & Fripp April 30, 2010?
I see that the other 4 dates of the new bundle have them. Thank you.

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear John, I have just mixed the T&F shows that have been added to the site, so I had access to the Soundscapes on the multi-tracks which is why I added them.

Recommendations
Any recommendations for great historical concert downloads? I'm in a collecting mood and would love to collect a few concerts from the '70s or 80's.

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Dennis, Many of the available shows on the site from the 70's & 80's are great shows. (also from other periods of KC too) It sort of depends on if you are open to listening to some audience recordings, which although variable, do have some great performances. There are some board recordings from the 70's and some multi-track mixes too. Where possible, it is good to read the reviews that have been posted and listen to the 30 second clips as well.

ISLANDS - IBIZA - FORMENTERA
Happy birthday to ISLANDS, my favorite Crimson album, as is the lineup which recorded it (although I love all of them, being a fan since 1974 or so). Placid, tranquil, serene, melancholic, sad, sophisticated, unpredictable, unique, distinct, inimitable, incomparable & unmatched. Choose a word: they all fit to describe the haunting beauty and atmosphere of the album. ISLANDS is an island in the progressive rock universe. I live in Brazil, but in 2017 I had the chance to visit part of the family that lives in Ibiza. I could not miss the opportunity to know Formentera, one of the 5 Balearic Spanish Islands. Once there, I visited EL PILAR DE LA MOLA, which is a high and very large plateau (the highest point on the island). It ends in La Mola Lighthouse, placed on the edge of the plateau. This entire highland ends abruptly in a frightening vertical abyss which casts itself upon the Mediterranean Sea. The solitude and quietness of the place is phantasmagoric. It is just the wind blowing leaves, grass, bushes, cactus and the pine. Below the Lighthouse you hear the persistent cry of seabirds and gulls, which wheel and glide, mournfully cry, in the high weathered walls, protected by vertical fall. Pete Sinfield was not lying. It is all still there in Formentera: houses iced in white wash still guard the pale sunset shoreline, strange herbs grow, fig trees, brown walls where Spanish Lizards run (they are green and all over the place in the wild parts of Formentera and Ibiza). The only thing that isn’t there anymore are the ladies of the road. They are all grannies now and were at home cooking for their grandchildren. But in case someone wants to meet new ones, leave Formentera and head for Ibiza. There is a lot of ladies, girls, boys in the effervescent Discos and hot nightlife.

Scarcity of Miracles video disappeared?
The beautiful video for The Scarcity of Miracles song seems to have disappeared off the face of the internet. Anyone know why? More importantly, anyone got a link to that video that still works? --Matt.

Thrilled to be here
46 years ago at the age 17 and in college for less than two months, I got the chance to see King Crimson for the first time. I can't say that I remember much about the show other than I was there and I made the mistake of taking a date to see them. She insisted we leave before the encore. Ah well, we didn't go on a second date. I am thrilled that I now can download the show!! I have yet to listen to all the tracks, but what I have listened to is fantastic.

It's quite long time ago so I do'nt remember the correct date, but I have 27 pictures from that gig.
It's quite long time ago so I do'nt remember the correct date, but I have 27 color pictures from that gig. If I can find the original film strip, maybe there will be a date from the shop who processed it. The place is right, the city is right, ... the date...??? "I'll be back...." *****

Hypnotic
I've always really loved the track God Saved the King, but never thought to delve too much further into the Frippertronics period until now. I feel well rewarded. This is a remarkably hypnotic set. Am so happy to have discovered it.

The start of something beautiful
One of my favourites. It changed my perception of music. Long live the king.

First KC show
This was my first ever Crim show, and a life-changing experience. I don't think I've felt so immersed in the music since I was a teenager, staying up all night playing my cheap stereo and driving my family insane. It was a magical, warm summer night in Griffith Park. The Greek is a perfect place to hear such a "sonically complex" band, and the sound was great. There are many moments I could rave about, but my favorite was probably the coda on ITCOTCK. I don't think I ever heard a live recording of an unabridged version of the song, so this was a very pleasant surprise. (Also, for the first time in my concert-going experience: a mile-long line to the men's room, and no one at the ladies' - sweet.) Thank you Crims, and please come back soon!
