Wow, that seems great. I was at one of the concerts, and the second half was amazing (well, it was all amazing, of course). I guess I will have to buy this one.

^ Just as I read on FB, unfortunatley they are missing the song Exiles, which they actually played the night I saw them (and was a real surprise). Given they chose such a long selection of songs, it doesn't make sense that they left it out.

Oh my Jim...that looks absolutely unresistable to me. I wish you hadn't posted that I just bought a truckload of new albums (and new headphones of course! ).
Looks like I'll have to wait a little before I get my hands on this, but it is most definitely edning up in my apartment at some point.


Btw nice to see Prince Rupert's Lament in there. Should be interesting - although I would have preferred to have the entire Lizard piece included as it is a particular fave of mine. It'd be almost impossible with all the different sections and just the sheer number of instruments in play....but you could just bin that in favour of some synths and oil drums perchance? I don't know but three incredible talented drummers could possibly make something audacious and wonderful out of those orchestral sections? I am dreaming out loud of course...

As blasphemous as this sounds, this was never one of my favorites, so while it would have been nice to have, I'm personally not too upset about it. I guess, being they only performed it once, it was substandard in Fripp's eyes.

They recently added the Bolero section on their most recent tour, so there is always a possibly they keep adding to it as future tours commence.

Actually, from the Lizard suite, the pieces I love are the first two, the rest I just don't care so much for, so I'm not really so thrilled that they played them (though I think I did enjoy this one better on the concert over the original version). As for the first two, I love them so much I'm afraid they couldn't do them justice. If I find Jakko's performance of "Epitaph" lacking, I don't expect him to be able to do much better trying to sing something originally with Anderson. And as for Bolero, I'd be missing too much Tippet's piano and the bunch of the wind section (I don't think Mel Collins alone could take it all to himself with the same effect). But if they actually already played it, I'd be interested at least in checking it out.

I do love Exiles, specially the live version on USA (or for me more accuratley, Collectable King Crimson Vol 1), but even as much I enjoyed the fact that they played it, and as much of a surprise that it was, indeed I thought the performance was not at the same level as the 70's versions of it (just about the same with Epitaph, I did know they had been playing it, but was not sure if they would keep it for the concert... yet as soon as the first notes played there was just that sense of something wonderful coming... actually I believe it was felt throughout the audience that it was the most welcome song when it began... still the performance just wouldn't reach the height of the original one, which of course I already knew having heard live versions of the new tours).

I see they have included Fracture. One of my favourite KC tracks... How does it sound?

^ Fracture is also available on the Vienna 16 live set, if you want a sneak peak. I for one quite like it. It is very dense, especially rhythmically and imo time has not degraded the energy from the finale.
