Under-appreciated Fripp guitar solos

How about the intense solo at the end of Last Skirmish on Lizard, I think it's actually the Prince Rupert's Lament section. The solo is really brilliant, and subtle when compared to the rest of the thing.

The soloing at the end of the Talking Drum is also one of my favorites, and that might not be as obvious or often appreciated as his Exiles or Fallen Angel solos.

His best solos often appear on other people's records: "St Elmo's Fire" & "I'll Come Running" from Eno's "Another Green World" - "Fade Away & Radiate" from Blondie's "Parallel Lines" & "Fashion" by David Bowie "Scary Monsters", for example.

Porcupine Tree's "Nil Recurring" also comes to mind. And I've always liked the live solo on "Wave" (Damage), although I've never been sure if that one is RF or Michael Brook.

aren't they ALL underrated? ;-)

it seems like in todays chart topping music, the art of the guitar solo is highly underrated, but that is another topic...

i would say, some of my favorite fripp work so far has to be in larks part one and part four!
