2 stars 2,5 stars really!!!

This calbum is nothing more than the studio demos and sessions of Giles Giles and Fripp and the transformation phases into King Crimson. This can be fascinating if you are a Crimson fanatic (the first two versions of I Talk To The Wind with Dyble on vocals and McDonald on flute but also the version without those two), but can be tedious to a non-fan.

Only a part of the tracks come from the Cheerful Insanities and the Study was clearly the chrysalidic form of Suite No.1 and many more funny annecdotes can be detected.

For Crimson fans only (hence 2*) but since I am one of those , the half star.......
