Thanks so much Paul....  I am actually onto Side 4 at the moment.  You have a good morning!, it must be time for some lunch shortly 🍔..  🍷    I will be going onto a movie after the vinyl.   Enjoy your day, and as always, I will post ANYTIME I have some vinyl to listen to :)...


I am actually in the middle of a storm now

Luckily we are prepared 

I was getting ready to spin an album and decided to wait it out as it’s not pleasant listening with thunder every now and then in the background

A new LP has just landed not more than 30 minutes ago  ( but will play it when time allows ) 

So I decided to share @dirtmudd @MicroMara

 

The first time I purchased this album was around 1971 and I lent it out several years later but never came back home 

Then I replaced it with a 1978 re issue album that I still have in the collection 

 

This release is the 50th anniversary album - Steve Wilson mix, that has great reviews so I have decided to add it to the collection 

 

Artist - King Crimson 

Title - In The Court Of The Crimson King 

 

Album ID - https://www.discogs.com/King-Crimson-In-The-Court-Of-The-Crimson-King-An-Observation-By-King-Crimson/release/14338110

. Said the straight man to the late man Where have you been I've been here and I've been there And I've been in between. I talk to the wind My words are all carried away I talk to the wind The wind does not hear The wind cannot hear. I'm on the outside looking inside What do I see Much confusion, disillusion All around me. You don't possess me Don't impress me Just upset my mind Can't instruct me or conduct me Just use up my time I talk to the wind My words are all carried away I talk to the wind The wind does not hear The wind cannot hear.

This is a mini review

Thought I would pen something down about my observations of the new album 

The 50th anniversary of - In The Court Of The Crimson King by King Crimson (2 LP ) 

 

First up I listened to the alternative LP just to get a feel for the background of how the final album was put together 


One track “ Epitaph “ on the alternative album was Greg Lake’s voice only 


After listening - It made me understand as to why some takes were not used ( and frankly I agree with the bands decision) 

——————

Now onto the remix of the 1969 LP 

I found that great respect was given

The record is very quiet ( but needed a deep clean ) 

Fantastic separation of the instruments especially the drums and percussion  

The percussion has timber and accuracy without drowning out any other instruments 

 

Its actually very well and sympathetically done  


However if I was to make a negative comment - but please Note this may be due to the accuracy of my system ? 
 

On the track “Epitaph “the beginning of the first 30 seconds or so the loudness gain is about 5% to 7% to much 

 

On the track “In The Court Of The Crimson King “ the drone  of the melotron and in the change over passages it also suffers the same from loudness gain  

 

That is my personal observation of the Steve Wilson mix

This is an extremely critical view, but I think that the sound engineer has deliberately mixed these tonal accents. On the other hand, it is of course even more amazing that your consciousness and your gear reproduce these nuances so clearly. This in turn speaks for the quality of your equipment. And this I have anyway, from the beginning of my membership in the KC, never questioned.

@Full Range I always enjoy reading your signature list.  That "highly modified" on your LS gets me every time!  hahaha  Now about that "modified" crossover you have, which naturally complements your "highly modified" LS so nicely...  😂  😂  I know where you live and I WILL find you some day!  😂 😎

very best deep purple song is LAZY and the keys are fantastic.

I was always a Rick Wakeman fan ... got to meet him many years ago and he even answered my email. 

Maybe you'll enjoy this:
