Exposure

Seen something about the guy that looks like a mushroom? Perhaps you just want to comment on his diaries? Post all that Fripperholic stuff here.

Gomer has never seen JB how would he know?

Oh! Thank Christ that's an alternate reality!

Have you listened to Jeff on BB's Gradually Going Tornado? Horrible horrible over-busy ego-massaging to the nth degree. I'd rather listen to Carnivore's classic track Jack Daniels and Pizza on endless replay... and if you've heard that you know exactly what I mean.

O!


I don't know about that his (JB's) noodling was sounding pretty solid at this years NAMM Gomer..

Exactly. TOO solid. No space. Crimson needs space.

Well, I guess RF owns the copyright to that doozie, so he can distribute it anyway he pleases. The new limited edition packaging is good enough for me as it goes nicely with my KC miniatures.

Look, look...look at the pictures and the lovely packaging:

Great review, Darren. Now that I've heard the remaster I can appreciate it more. It's a shame I no longer own Sacred Songs, so I can't scratch that NYCNY itch. When I programmed an all-Hall version recently I had to put "I May Not Have Had Enough of Me But I've Had Enough of You" in its place. But I have to say that I think I prefer the re-recorded vocals to the Hall originals, anyway. I agree with Fripp that the delay made for a stronger record in the end. It surprised me how little the change in the track sequencing affected the listening experience for me, even though I had the LP track order firmly ingrained in memory. Just goes to show that artists probably shouldn't obsess on track sequence so much.

Hi All, I'm new to this forum. This is my first post. I joined this forum just to make this post.

I just bought the Exposure Mini-LP deluxe edition from DGM, after having only the scratchy LP for many many years. It's one of my all-time favorite albums. However, I wanted to say a few words about the alternative "third edition" on CD2.

Fripp says that Tony Mottola rejected the original album with Daryl Hall because he thought that it would hurt Daryl Hall's commercial persona, or words to that effect. Well, after listening to the original Daryl Hall tracks, I believe that Tony Mottola rejected the album because it stinks. Those Daryl Hall performances on Disengage, New York City New York, and Chicago are absolutely unlistenable. Trying to listen to them reminded me of the feelings I had while trying to watch Tonya Harding at the 94 Olympics -- deep feelings of embarrassment. Daryl Hall is a brilliant singer whom I admire a great deal, but he was way WAY out of his comfort zone on those improvised performances. Fripp should have recognized how awful they were and abandoned them (more good advice could hardly be packed into a single sentence than there is there).

As I see it, Tony Mottola saved Exposure.

OK, bring it on!
