    And in today's 'old news to those in the know'...

    The Level Five EP has a different version of Virtuous Circle in the Japanese edition than the regular DGM release.

    Foiled again!

    ^^ Haha! I wonder if both versions will make the Heaven & Earth box set?

    Wow, lots more touring to come in 2019... they are just unstoppable at this point. My running compilation of live 2018 tour downloads released from DGMLive — with cross-fades and other homebrew mastering tweaks, naturally — now fills three full audio CDs (and counting). Exceptional music, great performances, terrific for the fans to have so much of it.

    In addition to burning the 'plain' DGMLive hot tickle downloads to disc (with custom mastering moves, natch), I also made my own homebrew version of "Neurotica 2018" with a little bit of Adrian Belew's vocals and guitar flown in from his Power Trio's Live Overseas recording. Fantasy 9-man lineup edition! Check it out!

    Especially I like how this goes with his pre-recorded zoological "Manhattan" interjections
    inserted before Jakko takes verses one and two, then it switches back to Adrian for the "I have, no fin, no wing..." bridge and then back to the taped babble for the outro... not bad for two 'board bootlegs' sewn together!

    Belew is putting out a new album in March 2019, Pop-Sided. He's also going out with a new band, a quartet with a keyboardist/guitarist, performing a new range of material that he hasn't been able to with the trio. Sounds exciting.

    listened to all of Meltdown over the course of the week (still need to watch the blu-ray) and it was fantastic. always interesting to hear so many slight variations (or sometimes big ones) in songs from different shows.

    is that the only officially released recording that includes KC playing a Fripp solo song live? (breathless, which is awesome and totally sounds like it belongs in the LTIA family)

    I'm in... for the documentary (and soundtrack, depending what's on it), Blu-ray box sets, biography, collector's club CDs, and hopefully a Toronto show as well! FRIPP ME UP WITH IT.

    Wow, I love the 'four singers' edit of "Cadence and Cascade" they just put up on streaming/download sites for the KC50 series.

    Gordon Haskell: Cadence and Cascade
    Kept a man named Jade
    Cool in the shade
    While his audience played

    Greg Lake: Purred, whispered "Spend us too
    We only serve for you"
    Sliding mystified
    On the wine of the tide

    GH: Stared pale-eyed
    As his veil fell aside

    Adrian Belew: Sad paper courtesan
    They found him just a man
    Caravan Hotel

    Jakko Jakzsyk: Where the sequin spell fell
    Custom...

    GL: Of the game
    GH: Cadence oiled in love
    AB: Licked his velvet gloved hand
    JJ: Cascade kissed his name

    AB:Sad
    JJ: ...paper courtesan
    They found him just a man
    Cadence...
    GH: and Cascade
    GL: Cadence and Cascade
    Cool in the shade
    GH: Cadence...

    The introduction track gives all the info. Belew sang it for the Frame By Frame box in 1991.

    all these KC 50 tracks and their commentaries have been so great so far. i've never heard any of the projeKcts so i was particularly taken with space groove ii and i'm really looking forward to the heaven + earth box set that'll be coming out, as singleton mentioned that all of the projeKcts would be part of it! hopefully the actual heaven + earth album will be part of it, too, as i haven't heard that, either!

    also, my wife, my dad, & i are all seeing them in chicago in september and i am SO EXCITED

    I'm guessing that'd be the plan. I'm definitely planning on springing for the box.
