Mister Stormy provides us with another glimpse into the making of King Crimson’s Lizard. Working on Dawn Song, we can hear Fripp on electric piano, talking to Robin Miller who provides the Cor Anglais here. Miller recalled that Fripp was always interested in the length and purity of the notes he produced. With such close micing we can hear Miller take his breaths which adds to the sense of being in the room with them. Miller, who can also be heard talking with Fripp about the ending, sustains the final note for 16 seconds. The clock-winding Fripp can be heard referring to is of course is the Wessex Studios metronome. Like all the other scaffolding put up as the tracks were being built, it was removed when the finished piece was ready to be unveiled. By the way trivia fans, that’s the same metronome that can be heard during the break in The Devil’s Triangle from In The Wake Of Poseidon.
