Indy don’t feel bad. I’ve seen the same line up without Jamie. I’ve seen the video with Jamie and guess what the last few incarnations of KC are better. I’ve seen Genesis (the real Genesis not Genesis lite) every time they played LA the last time at the Shrine. I’ve saw PG (with Fripp without Fripp) every time too until GP became GP lite. I could go on. I have to admit the Genesis show at the Roxy 71or72 (Yeah my mom took me to that one too)is the best show I’ve ever seen. The best music I’ve heard live is from the last two KC line ups. So these were the good old days. Now if only Fripp would bring the beast back to life. There is a need here RF you’re fans have a need to see KC, There’s a void out here. Ade’s show last week was a life saver............... 8)

I was referring to phoenixal thinking he was talking to all young pups. I would be willing to bet I have him by a few years, if not several. We probably need to exchange PMS to confirm it, but it's great to have another old git on board. :)

Maybe I could go look him up?!?!


Please do! And ask him to please get back to it! The music world misses him and needs him very much! :D

Over the last 24 hours, since I posted my recollections, I have questioned
myself as to whether I am looking at that Concert through rosy coloured
specs. Between 1971 & 1974, I was fortunate enough to witness live
performances by Zeppelin, Floyd, Sabbath, Yes, ELP & Genesis, among
others, and all were at the peak of their musical powers. All mean different things to me, but it is the KC London gig that I can remember
above all of them. Guys, it was REALLY THAT GOOD!!!!!.


Alan, you are the type of person we have been looking for here for a few years. Someone to tell us how things really used to be! Not how we thought they were! Please enlighten us!

would have stayed with the band for another year, or two (maybe this
could be a seperate thread?).


Man! :shock: It would have been out of this world! King Crimson would have risen to levels that have never been seen yet. Jamie was Larks Tongues In Aspic!

No, no no! Please don't stop rattling on! Some of us would love to hear stories and anecdotes of how things used to be!

In Harry Shapiro's wonderful book A-Z Of Rock Drummers, he describes Jamie as, "the man who made Syd Barrett look like a socialite." :lol:

I am a relatively new member and had no idea that you were so
dismissive of the '72/'73 KC as a top live act. We all take different things
from a live gig! I also saw the best Genesis line up (PG et all), twice, and,
for me, they were not as good as the '72 KC with Muir.
As to the "last few incarnations of KC" being better live, well I have
not seen them live (England has been a no go to KC for some years),
but have all official videos/dvds from 1981 to 2003, and, for me, there
has been no better live line-up than the '72 with Muir. You just had to be
there!!!

Being totally bowled over by the Rainbow gig, I went to see KC, again
at the Rainbow on the 18th March, 1973. To my dismay, Jamie had
injured himself at a Marquee, London gig on 10th Feb, and promptly
left the band. This was KC's fourth live gig as a quartet, and was fantastic
but, for me, it lacked power, spontanious inventiveness and the visual
theatre of Muir. The setlist was, more or less, the same as before, but as
an encore they played one of the first renditions of Doctor Diamond.
Sadly, my memory will not extend to my specific recollections of DD.
So a great live gig-Yes, but as good as '72, IMO NO.
"Jamie was Larks Tongues in Aspic". Yes, totally, completely and
absolutely. It was certainly the saddest day in KC history, when he left
the band. With him, who knows???

Phoenixal....
In case you're not aware (and being new to this site maybe you're not) but Robert Fripp has made available three KCCC's (King Crimson Collectors Club) CDs available for purchase. I don't recall what dates they are specifically but there are plenty of improvs on them. If you are aware of them then you probably have them by now.
My favorite movies (right now):
"Lost In Translation", "Mulholland Drive", "Pulp Fiction", "Sin City", "Buffalo '66", "Ghost World", "Apocolypse Now (Redux)", "Donnie Darko", "Raising Arizona", "Shawshank Redemption"
