Fallen Angel Debuts in Greensburgh?!
I didn’t realize Fallen Angel made it’s debut in Greensburgh.I listen to and recorded off the radio (WZUM Carnegie Solar Powered) ICOTCK back in high school. Then a buddy at Cal State (Chico) got me into KC starting with RED. I bought a cut-out cassette of RED for a dollar at Woolworth’s ...and have been buying ever since. Of course Fallen Angel has been an all-time favorite since....and of course Starless. Both were just too surreal and put me into bliss (sorry above reviewer it the only adjective that fits.) in Greensburgh. I remember a crafty video I bought and at the very end Robert states that his heart aches to play Starless again. I’ve witnessed Crimson several times, the first time ( w/Chico) in Akron in 1982. I have witnessed Robert or them ever since when in the Pittsburgh /Cleveland Area. (Did miss a Frippertronics tour at the Decade back in the day.) Chico, I, and Kindergarten buddy Mike sat in the balcony first row dead center (Real close to where we sat for Musical Box.).Saw this KC incarnation in Rochester(w/Chico) where the curfew made for some disappointment,although Islands and Starless was well worth the price of admission and then some. Greensburgh was a mix between,awe,surreal and bliss! Again the Crims exponentially exceeded my expectations!
On another note: Sailors Tale ....I like just as much as Road to Red. This shocks me. I feel it is because I thought the sonic quality would be similar to Earthbound. While much of it is,much of it is pretty and pretty sonic,especially the smaller clubs they played..... and the two bonus unknown concerts.
Second: If you are a fan of Fripp and Eno you will love Cross and Fripp,s ;Starless & Starlight.
Third: Does any one know where I can get The Bruford Box Set?
Fourth: I know Chico won’t write a review,Mike I would love to see yours.
Finally.: The Greensburgh and Rochester Shows placed me in awe with the talent and musicianship,although nothing like the Radical Action DVD. This is most magical!
