I really hope they manage to reconcile their differences - as they really are special together.

 

I enjoyed it too - although I personally didn't really hear any Led Zep III in it like someone remarked a few days ago.

My mother offered to purchase tickets for my family: myself, my brother, sister, wife and and 13 year old daughter. A child of the 70’s, I thought a billing of Peter Frampton and BB King would work. My mom prefers acoustic folk music, but I grew up around classic rock. It wasn't our first choice, but the timing was right. It seemed like a middle ground.

 

I was expecting a nostalgic, slightly lame trip down memory lane from an over the hill rocker remembering my image of the matinee idol stadium star of the 70’s. Indeed, He’s in his 60’s now and has lost most of his hair.

 

But, I was wrong! The guy is a true blue old school blues guitar rock hero. He brought the house down. I was expecting 70’s soft pop rock. But, he played with the energy of someone half his age and the sound was closer to the hard rock sounds of The Who or Hendrix.  Moments of Zeppelin, even.

 

Frampton currently is on tour with a what he calls the Frampton guitar circus. Various guitar talents play with him depending on the venue.

Last night, he played with 87 year old  BB King and Roger McGuinn of the Byrds. There was a Woodstock, psychadelic vibe playing with MGuinn’s on the Byrd’s classic 8 miles high. In addition to his classics, he covered While My Guitar Gently Weeps and a mostly instrumental and really killer cover of Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun. A 70's stadium star covering one of my favorite bands from the 90's. Pretty cool.

 

I've posted links to his version of Black Hole Sun, While My Guitar Gently Weeps and last night's performance with McGuinn of 8 Miles High.

Totally recommend checking him out for anyone interested in great blues and classic rock guitar gods.

 

Streaming his greatest hits.

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic 40th anniversary 

 

Larks' Tongues In Aspic, from 1973, is widely regarded as one of the truly great King Crimson albums. 

With its raw tone, inspired improvisations and hard hitting odd-metered rhythms, the album marked a radical departure for this most forward thinking of groups and was the first to include Bill Bruford and John Wetton as band members. 

This 40th Anniversary cd/dvd-a edition features new mixes by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Robert Fripp. 

The cd features a new stereo album mix by Robert Fripp & Steven Wilson and also features three extra Steven Wilson alt takes/mixes from the multi-track tapes.

This was a pinnacle album so after that I would probably go right to the begining with Court of the Crimson King then do decade by decade, 80's being Discipline, 90's  THRAK and 2K, ConstruKtion of Light. Then go back and fill out the catalogue if you are still intrigued.

Thank you. I will do exactly that. Have you heard the 40th anniversary remaster of "Court of the Crimson King"? Just wondering if I should keep getting the Wilson/Fripp remasters or just stick with the originals.

I am going to pick up that 40th this week if possible. I have not heard it yet. As a matter of preference now I want the original first and the remaster later. (or budget permitting both at the same time). The original MF remasters of Steely Dan and the endless remasters of Pink Floyds catalogue have really tempered my enthusiasm. Some are actually worse than the original release, which of course you would not know if you had not heard the original. As well the original release in a lot of cases is actually a showcase for the industry standard at the time. You get to hear a lot of what equipment was being used to master and mix through the recording itself so it sets a timespace and flavour some remasters lose.

Misfits- Walk Among Us. All the Hi-Fi equipment is pretty much useless when listenning to recordings like these, but it's all part of the appeal ain't it beyersmile.png. This might be considered blaspheme here, but low-fi for life :D

. Hi-Fi equipment isMisfits+-+1982+-+Walk+Among+Us+-+Front.jpeg absolutely useless when listening to recordings
