King Crimson Part 1, just a taste

Brian brought up this band when we were talking the other day, I was thinking how long it's been since I've listened to this stuff, used to really love some of it back in "high" school, of course now I would listen to it in a different light (it's wonderfully dated, as is a LOT of older stuff I like, which is just fine, as long as one maintains a sense of humor, if you understnad what I mean.)

Well, first of all, I USED to have these albums somewhere, but on my shelf now, all I have is "In the Court of the Crimson King"....this copy is no joke however, it's a TOTAL bad-ass sounding vinyl rip, MUCH better than any digital effort you might locate......I am not going to dwell to much on the band's constantly shifting lineups, let's just say they have been the playground of guitarist Robert Fripp for the most part.....anyway, THIS one was always my fave, ahead of it's time then, a dated wonder now, a classic of trippy acid/jazzy prog and more, if you've never heard it, do yourself a favor and enjoy this VINYL version, it's the best you'll hear.......highlighted, of course, by the title track, and of course, "Twenty First Century Schizoid Man" (sample lyric: "Cat's paw, iron claw, neurosurgeons scream, for more....at paranoia's posison door....twenty first century schizoid maaaaaaan", there are LOTS more classic lyrics of this mode as well)......must have classic.

I don't know what happened to the rest of my vinyl editions of the early albums, apparently I never ripped them to CD and don't seem to have the vinyl originals around here either, my best guess is I loaned them to a friend long ago, this "friend" was a HUGE fan of King Crimson, as well as Genesis and Yes, and my vinyl from those acts is suspiciously missing as well, so DAVE TIEMANN, wherever you are, if you still have my fucking vinyl why the FUCK not bring it back, loser?

So, anyway, it's quite easy to go to the Bay and grab digital copies, what we have here are FLAC versions, which, for this type of music, sound very good (better than say MP3, of course NOT NEARLY as good as vinyl).......so let's run through the rest of the bands peak era, I'm going to stop about 1975 as I doubt I've ever heard anything post-that date, if there are any gems in there, point them out to me......maybe YOU can, Dave Tiemann........

OK, I've hit a snag.....my computer is FULL, due to my laziness, I need to transfer a bunch of stuff to an outside harddrive before I can do much with these gigantic Flac files......so what the fuck, I'm doing it, but it'll take nearly 24 hours.....so why not just give you a LITTLE sample for now until I get my computer straightened out, by providing you my WONDERSOME vinyl rip of the debut album? It's great, it's vinyl, and if you are unfamiliar, it will give you a fine introduction until I can get the computer ready to work with me? Better than me posting NOTHING, and by Wedensday, I'll have a whole GLUT of King Crimson stuff for ya! Cheers!
