    HOLY SHIT, that's a good fucking question. I thought Fripp changed his mind before they actually had him in the studio? That's what he wrote in the Young Person's Guide booklet anyway, that they cancelled the studio session for Elton to sing on the Poseidon tracks because Fripp didn't like his debut album. Maybe there's actually been a tape of Elton singing "Pictures of a City", or some shit like that, hidden away in a dusty cupboard for all these years. How wild would that be?? Bryan Ferry was apparently also on the list of lead singers they auditioned...

    It's another fucking autobuy. Robert, David and the team at DGM are taking too much money from my wallet this month.

    I was really happy to see that added to their repertoire, mainly because of Jakko's version he recorded (which I linked to here before) which I actually prefer to the original.

    Thank you! I wasn't sure if I should buy the CD, but for me a FLAC download is just as good. I'm only eight tracks in, but I can already say that this is AMAZING! LTIA1 sounds so different to the 2015 versions. And the performance in Lizard is mind-blowing. Also, I'm really satisfied with the choice of Bill Rieflin doing keyboards. His contributions polish the overall sound and fill some sonic gaps. And to be honest, I prefer Jeremy Stacey's style as the "center drummer" to Rieflin's.

    Oh man, that Chicago "Islands" is included on the bonus CD that came with my Japanese-exclusive pressing of Live in Vienna. What an amazing performance!

    Of course, the main program of that set is bone-crushingly awesome too. Can't wait to get the full Chicago CD to accompany it!

    I'm midway through and I agree. Steven Wilson stopped short of comparing Stacey to Keith Moon in terms of the style he employed on his share of the To The Bone material, but he put over how much of a powerhouse he is. It likely makes him more comfortable between Harrison and Mastelotto, where I could see Rieflin was doing fine but not nearly keeping up as much.

    In other news I bought the THRAK box on discogs yesterday. It was just over 100 bucks, and so probably the cheapest copy anywhere. I hope, with my birthday and Christmas to consider, that by the end of the year I can get my hands on either last year's box or this year's. Probably the new one since I'm more fond of the 70's material anyway.

    the "on and off the road" box is pretty amazing. i got way more out of it than the thrak box (i think that's due in part to it covering three albums and more years).

    The THRAK box arrived on what's otherwise been a rather crappy day. Can't wait to dig in to the live material particularly. One thing I think gets overlooked with these sets is just how really well-written and put-together the liner notes are.

    Bill Rieflin won't be playing on the upcoming shows. Fripp reported on Facebook he's being replaced by a fellow named Chris Gibson.

    Still no indication yet of who is actually playing on the pre-Islands rehearsals, or what the additional downloadable concert will be, but otherwise the full track listing is up for the Sailors’ Tales box set and OH MAMA.

    It's too huge to post here in its entirety (literally... it exceeds the message board's 20000 character limit) but I'm going to be occupied until well into the new year playing everything.

    really wish i had the money for it. i didn't get the other 70s box sets but i have downloads of them and some of the stuff on them is pretty great (though the sound quality of some of the live recordings leaves a lot to be desired). i'm guessing this will be much the same.

    Yes, those cassette recordings from the '72 shows are pretty rough (just listen to Earthbound). But there's lots of other stuff besides that to contend with here! A proper (likely fragmentary, but still) 5.1 mix of "The Devil's Triangle"! Brand new Jakko vocals on the studio versions of "Islands" and "Cadence and Cascade"! More alternate takes from Lizard!

    No, as of yet the new 7 and 8-person editions of "Fracture" have been totally AWOL from the band's official recordings. Maybe this autumn they'll release a download?

    Last night at the Friends & Family show in Austin they pulled out a few surprises, including "Breathless" from Fripp's first solo album. Love that tune! I got to see Stick Men play it just this August, when they were last here in Toronto.

    Fracture will be on the Vienna EU/US release as promised. We'll just have to buy it once more.

    It was an upmix from the original stereo, because they didn't have the multitrack masters to work with at the time. Apparently those have now been found (some of them, anyway).
