Specially with KC in the early 70's. Check "Great Deceiver", live 4CD box set

Will have to look around for a deal for this boxed set. "Wake of Poseidon" first album I purchased by KC, back around 1971. Took my music listening appreciation to another level.

Thanks for the video, it's one of my fav song.

Appreciate the tip on Baker.  Very sad and unfortunate departure from life.

I have similar experience with King Crimson, except I've recieved my "awe-hit" in the late 90's when I was in high school. Saw them live in Vienna last year and I have to say that they have out of this world live performance. I don't even know how to rank it in my head, it was that good.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

they were famous in my teens big_smile
but even now, that first song is really nice.
reminds me of herman van veen's thoughts on edith piaf:

google translate wrote:

I did not understand it, I could feel my goose bumps
The silver in our house seemed to sparkle then
My mother put down the vacuum cleaner because the radio sang Edith, Edith Piaf
In my mind I saw her singing in a big black theater of vultures sitting grinning on the edge of their chairs
Sang in my feelings she for one whom she hated as the plague begged on her knees to come home quickly
Edith Piaf

I did not understand it I felt it on my goose bumps It sounded like a creed for the stones of Paris
And mother put the vacuum cleaner off because the radio sang Edith, Edith Piaf
I saw a bat trying to flee but she did not come away
She fluttered back and forth between microphone and accordion
I saw so many oath bursting over a few glasses Wine and a spring that only started slowly with a chorus
Edith Edith Edith Edith Edith Piaf ...

edit:
btw, these are not google translate antics. he really sings that.

Never had a chance to attend a concert with KC, always might still have a chance if they expand their 2017 "Radical Action Tour" but that is doubtful at this point. US tour may be over, not sure but Europe will see them in the coming months.

Imagine that concert was something to experience, would make a KC fan out of anyone! Past, and present band members over the decades have much influenced many of the progressive bands I listen to now. Definitely one of my most favorite bands.

Would like to visit Austria, been to Germany on short jaunts from the UK but would like to spend more time on the ground next time. Bucket list! : )

Re: What are you listening to right now?

An early project with Jimmy Page, Chris Squire and Alan White after Zepellin was XYZ (ex Yes & Zepellin), not to be confused with another band with the same name XYZ which is a semi-heavy metal band.

True, they are touring in Europe again next year from June to November. A couple of friends of mine are going to Venice, concert venue looks incredible. Sadly, I can't go.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

yawn.
the album studio version is much zestier.
that's the king crimson i love, that rollercoaster ride that remains interesting and suspenseful even in the slow stretches.
plus, "Starless and Bible black" is just such a nice phrase.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^ nice music. i like kevin ayers.
just the bit in the middle - sounds like a broken cd player - is that part of the original LP? if so, it's too long.

Yes it was, and it sounded too long back then too. They were trying to be "avant garde" I guess.

fuzzy!

have to get back to this one.

there's a very prolific (and non-punky) artist called ty segall who produced that album, giving it its unique sound.
"gnarly" as well as "fuzzy" (i saw the word "sludge" also).

turns out there's a new band called GØGGS with the same singer & ty segall actually part of the band (not sure what instrument; something fuzzy and gnarly i guess).

There's also more from EX-CULT - Midnight Passenger is of bearable recording quality and has a somewhat different sound.
