damn even wetton caught a case of belew fever. how can these cats be in king crimson and not realize what the score is? this is the republic of fripp


Kind of the story of a lot of folks in the band - get too big headed and that spooks fripp and that’s the end of it. Fripp very clearly a purist vibe artistic guy to say the least....you should know signing up how seriously he takes the band!

But yeah how moronic of wettons management - they caused a cool alt lineup to get jettisoned. If they just played nice, maybe every fripp would have joined up!

Exiles and sheltering sky are both cool, infrequently played updates by current band....glad to hear em!

Classic fripp solo at end of exiles and sheltering sky is basically guitar solo, flute, more guitar solo, with a bunch of well placed jazzy piano from Jeremy Stacey. Both worthy takes by the current band, I like it!

Yeah I'm curious about those two as well! Exiles sounds wonderful... really would like to hear that one live myself. The Sheltering Sky is much different with sax, plus Robert and Tony both bring in new parts it feels like.

I get why they didnt play exiles more... The "mantra" part is too fast. I don't get why they played fake flute in the bridge instead of mel playing real flute

Because at that point, it was an 8 man band with 3 guys having keyboards in their rigs so why not use em !?!?!?! Kidding....I do agree though

Certainly some of the guitar work is reminiscent of KC, but otherwise definitely solo jakko. Interesting how they are holding back the 3 songs intended for KC, which presumably are the ones that actually feature fripp.

Will actually be curious if KC plays any of the songs from jakkos solo album or if he puts a solo band together. That would be interesting a la scarcity of miracles.

Yep - it’s certainly out there.....frame by frame demo is cool-ish, although as one would expect, jakko does not play Fripps super fast cross picking parts on it, obviously leaving those to fripp for live playing, so demo certainly missing a spark, but that would be expected! Rest of it has some cool stuff around....nothing as exciting to me as sheltering sky and exiles, but certainly some content to digest!

Also, per DGM guestbook, live in Rome 2018 isn’t on radar anymore....looks like they wanna do something from 2019 to have ready for sale for the tour next summer. So we shall see....all we have yet from that is radical 1 extended and level 5.

What do you think is the best audience recording of frame by frame of this lineup? I wanna mix the demo with the live version

Royal Albert hall I imagine? Didn’t listen to a ton of boots from 2019, less setlist variation in terms of songs played than years prior for current lineup.

Planning on doing jakko singing over the original studio version. Not too far fetched considering jakko already did cadence and islands

Yes, Exposures -- I'm hoping it includes all the 90s soundscape albums on BD. I'll be all in on that.

I'm really really happy with the 2020 Tour Box, by the way.

Very curious where that all goes - have to assume it’ll be exposure plus really all of Fripps solo career yeah? So a ton of soundscapes and frippertronics? And imagine a ton from the exposure sessions?
