Written by syncopatico

Ah, the glory days of late-1960ís/early-1970ís English prog-rock drumming (and drumming in general)! Back from a time when young adventurous drummers were influenced by jazz and possessed some swing and finesse to their playing. Unlike more recent years when young drummers are more influenced by sheer technique (hand/foot speed to the detriment of an overall musicality) and rigid time-keeping (the results of the prevalence of the click-track, unwavering 4/4 dance music and Pro Tools uniformity). Here you can hear Michael Gilesí excellent drumming skills (impressive double bass drum work!?) but at the same time his deft ride cymbal sticking and crisp snare accenting maintains a flowing feel--something which so many of todayís heavy-handed, pounding drummers noticeably lack!

The King in Atl in 1981   Wed., Oct 14, 2015
Posted by: smluvskc10
Wow!  What a great, great show.  The sound quality is surprisingly good considering the source.  Bill Bruford is absolutely on fire in the long solo in Indiscipline.  Fripp sounds tremendous (as does everyone else) in Sartori in Tangier, certainly one Read more
