So, did he convert it to New Standard Tuning, or does he warm up in conventional tuning just as a fingering exercise?

I know it's unlikely he ever uses anything but NST, but I'm baffled as to how anyone could change tunings and still play something that complex.

I guess so. There's a snippet of him doing the Fracture warm-up on the 1984 TOAPP concert vid. But seeing as NST came to him in 1983 it is possible he was still using standard tuning at this point. I don't know. :roll: Ask Sid.

Just proves you're not as obsessive as Fripp. I can practically guarantee that he has relearned it in NST; Adrian has commented on the faces Fripp makes trying to execute some of the old KC repertoire in the new tuning. If it was me, I'd just play 'em in the original tuning, since they were written for it. And Fripp has clearly toyed with lots of the oldies. I don't see how else he and Adrian could have slipped into ITCOTKC so easily during that recent soundcheck download.

Today the posted a oldie from the Lizard session

http://www.dgmlive.com/archive.htm?artist=3&show=1352

Here's another peek into Wessex studios as King Crimson are recording what would be their third album, Lizard, at the tail-end of 1970.

What we hear is a backing track being laid down by Gordo and Andy with a comping guide line from Robert on guitar. Mel Collins would all be brought in at a later stage to add his contributions.

Fripp too would overdub a different guitar part as well as VCS3 synth and a splash of Hammond organ. That would all come later in the process. Right now though we can cop an earful as to how vibrant the bass and drums sound on this demo whilst singing along at the same time.
Heigh-ho.

A new one from the Thrak sessions at Real World

http://www.dgmlive.com/archive.htm?artist=8&show=1644
Notes
It’s SingalongaThraK time thanks to Mr.Stormy’s unearthing of this pre-vocal mix of that well-known Double Trio toe-tapper. Recorded during the sessions for Thrak at Real World Studios in 1994, Mister Stormy said he particularly likes this version as all that wacky Mellotron goodness really stands out. This, by the by,is the same Mellotron that was used during the recording of In The Court of the Crimson King.

I have been listening to something I've downloaded from what I think was a Mr. Stormy's Monday Selection. It is from 10-6-73 at University of Texas at Arlington. I researched it in the Performance Repository, and it is Improv I "driven by Bill's rythm box". It is physically impossible for me to stop playing this. This ranks way up there as far as improv's go from the 72-74 band. I don't know if anyone else actually downloaded it and kept it, but if you did, give this another try. This is really an excellent example of off-the-wall improv especially once it starts cooking (from about 7:10 on). I still can't believe I didn't make this show (I would have been about 17 at the time, and it is only about 20 minutes away). Krykie, this is a great one.

I've just had a near-hard drive failure on my laptop. I think I can recover most of what's on there, but I deleted my whole music folder to clear space. Most of it is backed up, but I did lose one recent Monday Selections I'd like to keep. Does anyone have:
