In The Court Of The Crimson King: King Crimson At 50 — Download option?
Question for the DGM team: is a download of "In The Court Of The Crimson King: King Crimson At 50" possible or on the horizon? I want to watch it, I want to *pay* for it, but with my last DVD player in a 13YO iMac going the way of the dodo, I'm physical media free, and going to stay that way. Maybe the doc will show up on Netflix or Apple TV, but if there was a thought to make it available digitally, well, I humbly offer one vote/market research in favour…

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear James, The Film is currently receiving selected cinema screenings & is available on BD/DVD. Keep watching the DGM news pages for details of any other availability.

Slightly agree despite disagreeing
Well, part of me agrees with you, Chris Inguanta: I think the complexity of Crimson's music gives the Great Roberto and all the other fantastic Crimson players opportunities to play or solo in ways that would be impossible with (eg) standard blues forms or whatever. OTOH, sometimes other bands or artists bring out interesting playing by Fripp you don't hear much on Crimson records. Or maybe I'm betraying the fact that, when I first ran across Fripp's playing (and for the first several years!) it was not in the context of King Crimson or Prog, so call me biased I guess.

OS-29
Dear Mr. Mundy. After been led astray by dealing with my so-called "important to-do tasks" list throughout the summer / this autumn (and unpacking The Tome on the Guitar Circle wasn't one on this list), it was time to catch-up on the goodies offered by DGM from June until now... and going through the listing all the editions of the Occasional Series, I do not seem to trace down # 29 of Alex 'Stormy' Mundy's Occasional Series?? No mention of it on the News pages too. There must be a reason, or doesn't it? (Apart from the obvious reason that I first should have a listen of what I now have on my SSD...).. All the best from Berlin!

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Erik, OS-29 is the Robert, Bill, Trey part of VROOOM.

1000 Club
My membership is set to end this coming February. I have a few questions I cannot find the answers for. 1) Does this auto-renew? 2) If not have much time do I have to re-new? 3) I am going to guess the $500 in free downloads is use it, or lose it. Many thanks.

Alex Mundy replied:

Dear Edward, Good question about renewal – we’re changing the system at the moment but things are moving slowly with Worldpay . As things stand, if the original subscription was paid for by card it should auto-renew. If it was PayPal, you will get a reminder and it will need to be renewed manually. This will change going forward but we’re not sure exactly when this will be the case. We'll let you know when it does change. Edward, you can renew early if you use your credit up, but you are correct that the balance will be lost if it is not used at the time of renewal.

I disagree with Emory and Tiago
We can agree to disagree. The riffs/solos on Red, Fracture, Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part II, Lizard. Starless and Bible Black and 21st Century Schizoid Man are phenomenal. There are many others that I have not mentioned. I just don't agree with you positions.

Simply amazing
Some of the greatest stuff put out by the band in early '73. David's violin is very clear and the improvs are awesome, about half an hour's worth. Being 1 and a half hours long, this concert is very worth hearing. The band does great and it's interesting to hear what they sounded like close after Muir left. The sound is closer to Larks' than it is to Starless. Very great and I hope we can get a soundboard of this in the future.

Now this is where Providence belongs
What do I mean yes... When Red was made in 1974 there was a track called Dr. Diamond that was played plenty of many times and another song called Guts On My Side.... Well I don't know about Guts.. But Side Two track I'm trying to imagine now ahhhhh Track 1 Dr. Diamond... Then Track 2 then fade in into Starless ... End. ( You can make your own version which would very easy to do but history is what it is ... ( Providence really didn't belong on Red it belonged on this recording live in Providence right here... )

Interesting audience recording
I'll rate 5 for the playing, 2 stars for the recording. You could hear the audience a lot in this recording. Mr. Stormy cleaned it up as only he can, but some recordings are tough to improve. I did enjoy listening to this concert, despite it's murkiness. It may not be for everyone, but I am a die hard Crimson fan.

Dance, dance
A serious toe-tapper right here. I loved the sample from ProjeKct Two's "In space there is no North...". Pure bliss indeed!

Good listen
It was interesting to hear this track with just the vocals and the guitar. It was eerie and mysterious.

Tis murky
But it is listenable, if you are a fan. The 5 stars are for the playing. A typical audience recording, where you do hear a lot of audience talking in the background. I enjoyed listening to this concert.
