I went with "Drop In".

I think it has some of the most "rocking out" (for lack of a better term) playing they ever did. And it is so different to anything the 1969 line-up ever did. It just kicks serious butt.

Lake's vocals are so unlike what he usually sings like in terms of feeling, emotion etc. It just sounds like he is jamming and having a good time. I like his bass playing on it too.

Ian is the star of this tune. His sax playing is tremendous adding a quality that could almost be called burlesque-ish. That main riff he goes into makes me nod my head back and forth every time I heard it and say "yeah!".

And this has to be some of Michael Giles best fills. Just awesome. And I remember the first time I heard a bootleg of this tune over 20 years ago and that was what caught me. It swings as well.

The only one who does little on this tune was Fripp! :o

I think he just could not grasp this type of music at the time and that is why it was not played for long. His chords are nice though. :wink:

I would loved to have seen and heard 21st Century Schizoid band do this one!

I believe Fripp wrote Drop In! See The Brondesbury Tapes.

Cheers,

IMO, "Get Thy Bearings." That song is sick. It's only on live albums right?

Does that really count since it's a cover and not a KC tune?

Two Hands
I really like this song. I like the strange tight flutey guitar lead, Bruford's percussion, I like the sentimental lyrics by Mrs. Belew, I like Ade's delivery.

Donovan, of "Jennifer, Juniper" fame (actually I like Hurdy Gurdy Man better, Jeff Beck and all), I think. But, I could be wrong 'cause I had a few beers and don't feel like looking it up right now.

It was Donovan. I don't know what album it was on though, if any. They stretched out quite a bit on that one as well. Especially Mike Giles who did some really out there stuff on it.!

Would be indeed interesting to hear the original.

Funny how some bands can take a song by songwriter and in many cases totally re-do it and make it better than ever could have been imagined, as The Jimi Hendrix Experience did with Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" and as Yes did with Paul Simon's "America". Amazing really! :shock:
