Epitaph instrumental

Postby kathy on Mon Dec 05, 2011 9:32 pm

I'm a King Crimson fan for years but new to this forum, so I hope this is the right place... I found a great instrumental version of Epitaph @ youtube and wonder what other King Crimson fanatics think about this. In my ears this is a great version:
What do you think?!?
Thanks and best regards,

Really good. I especially liked the way the guitarist played the melody: reminded me of how Steve Hackett might play it. I thought the solos were overlong, but it held my attention all the way through.

I liked it too it was interestingly different. The guitar solo was good but did drag a bit still it was really good. Welcome Kathy

I was curious to see what this was, thought it might be about the backing track on the 40th anniversary edition. Happily, I was wrong!

And instead of a discussion about the greatest-thing-since-sliced-bread for a KC Karaoke singer like me, I found a rather good German fusion band with a heavy dose of psychedelic/metal in the mix. Those guys are doing with Epitaph what I think jazzers would be expected to do: using it as a vehicle for their own art. The bassist is their bandleader and he seems to have been restraining himself a bit on Epitaph, because when I dug a little deeper into their stuff on youtube I found this jazzfusion number with a virtuoso bass solo (with, I guess, MIDI on there, too) YEAH! (And there's a crazy trombone solo, too.)

For an example of how they treat material, check out their version of The Who's Behind Blue Eyes: That woman can REALLY play guitar!

On youtube someone posted that these people are "LOCAL GIANTS" (I guess in whatever German city that might be).
