KC's soul sits on a stool side stage (Sometimes in deep shadow)
I saw this tidbit when looking for something not related to KC. "The only band who can truly get away with changing their front man every five minutes and retain their original band name is King Crimson. The Mighty Crim are unique, though. Their soul sits on a stool at the side of the stage (sometimes in deep shadow), stares at the floor and noodles on a guitar. Fripp, the true leader of that band, is the sole exception. This is because Fripp constantly and completely reinvents King Crimson. Compare the 70s KC with the early 80s version. The two cannot be compared. Hence, if Fripp ever leaves for good. King Crimson will die."

Washington Square XI
Although not a huge Frippertronics fan, I purchased the Washington Square Church yesterday. And boy, what a wonderful release! Love it! But I am wondering a lot about the last track (XI): there are Frippertronics plus TWO layers of arpeggios! How can the first layer of arpeggios be on the backing tape for so long without fading out and not clashing with itself when the loop starts over? The answer could be that there are THREE layers on this track. IS there?

Exposures
Having heard almost everything in the box once or twice, the contents do not disappoint. The Frippertronics archive blu-ray discs are great, allowing for many hours of listening at a stretch. Signals from another world, yet closer than skin. The Resplendent In Divergence disc is a beauty. The new mix of Exposure is very much like the first (1979) mix, but the murkiness has gone. The track Funky Frippertronics is quite a find - Miles Davis backing band meets Frippertronics. The only thing I miss is a inflatable lifesize cardboard picture of RF playing his guitar on a stool while playing the frippertronics discs. Put the lights down low and it's almost real...

"Better in the Dark"
It sounds to me like the aforementioned piece, which was only played at a handful of the early LoG shows, according to the archive.

Likely some sort of AM radio recording.
While a bit lo-fi this recording seems to give off the impression of a radio performance. The instruments are far too up front and clear to be any sort of audience recording, and the volume of the bass further gives me this impression. This recording is definitely not for those with weak ears but that being said it is one of the better tapes from this part of 1973, and is a very good listen.

Grim sound quality, but solid playing and set list
This isn't the worst quality recording of the Islands band, but it is by no means good. The audience is very noticeable and loud at times. With that out of the way, let me say the playing on this night is solid. Plus, it's always a pleasure to have a lengthy set list without any incomplete songs.

Fascinating
Very interesting to hear VROOM separated into its 2 parts. Now I know how it comes all together. This one's a keeper and I enjoyed listening to it multiple times.

Stunning Soundscapes
Front to back this album is gorgeous work. You'll quickly be lost in the emotional atmosphere created, and it'll keep you hooked all the way through until you're at the end wanting more. Certainly one of RF's strongest 'scapes, absolutely worth the listen. Personal highlights are The Cathedral Of Tears and Second Light.
