  1. I could be wrong, but it seems like both links lead to the FLAC downloads. And both FLAC zip files have part 1 inside them. Thanks for all the great uploads!

  2. Great to see King Crimson here! In my book, the only rock band comparable to the Grateful Dead, in that they improvised outside the song structures (especially in the years 1971-74) and had (have) a brilliant guitarist (and weak vocalists..!). A word of warning though: Robert Fripp is notoriously active in going after unauthorised recordings..

  3. Weak vocalists !?


    They’re all able to do what’s needed.

    Belew I always really liked as a vocalist especially, on his solo
    records as well.

    Since I’m nitpicking πŸ™‚
    They had two great guitarists surely for much of their time,
    Fripp and Belew

  4. hey nikos
    they also had THREE drummers not just two πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Going by that cover picture – what’s the story there ?

  5. Tony, sorry for the vocalist remark – wasn’t meant to be disparaging: as with the GDead, no one can say that Garcia is a strong singer: but we love him him just the same! It ultimately comes down to personal taste: Me, I enjoy Judy and Greg, John I find a bit theatrical!
    You are right about the drummers – forgot that additional similarity.

  6. I know what you mean about John…. but as I was thinking
    about all of them, it did occur to me how they all seem to suit
    the style and atmosphere of the different pieces very well.

    I can’t imagine The Night Watch or Easy Money being sung
    by anybody else.

    As for the Dead, give me Garcia over Weir any day of the
    week πŸ˜‰

    Pigpen was a great singer of course. But then again, I just
    can’t imagine him singing Eyes of the World

  7. Links are fixed. I gotta be honest, I know nothing about King Crimson. Anybody want to tell me where I should start?

  8. That’s a tall order! They have a long, long history, from the late 1960s to today, with many line-ups – basically, KC have been the group assembled each time by Robert Fripp, an exceptionally gifted guitarist and a completely individual musical spirit. Maybe start with the “classic prog-rock” period, up to 1974, which culminates with the brilliant quartet that made Lark’s Tongues in Aspic, Starless & Bible Black and Red. Their concerts are great. But Fripp evolved, and played ambient music with Brian Eno, post-modern guitar on David Bowie’s “Heroes”, with the Talking Heads, with Blondie (check out the guitar work on the wonderful ballad “Fade Away and Radiate” from Parallel Lines), and of course with his own groups..

  9. just to add to what nikos says….

    Here’s my quick guide…

    In the Court of the Crimson KIng
    Larks Tongues

    that’s three different line ups, three classic albums

    Now add in some Fripp!

    No Pussyfooting (with Eno)
    Let the Power Fall
    Live At Coventry Cathedral – Travis & Fripp

    The recent re-issue of No Pussyfooting is a hoot… includes
    bonus tracks like the original tracks played backwards
    at half speed !!

    Check out the Crim goofing around a bit:-

    They make it all look so very easy πŸ™‚
