I’ve seen this around, but I’m not sure, what is your opinion of the alternate versions?

Thought I would pen down a mini review 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 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

I know the original album like its part of my DNA, so it's fascinating to hear the alternate versions.  There's walking bass-lines, different beats, harmonies and structures.  The two Christine McVie tracks 'Songbird' and 'Oh Daddy' are a real highlight with Stevie adding extra harmonies.  Nice...

Arrived today. My first record for the year. And it's beauty. One of my all time favourite bands.

 

Good sq.

Very catchy ear worm toons.

I think you would like this band John @scuzzii.

 

I'm on my 3rd listen. Fairly hammered this on Spotify over the last couple of months. Worth it just to hear Gavin Harrison on drums alone.

 

Album recorded by Kscope. Who do a decent job, especially (dare l mention it) on their CDs. Not had a dud in either format.

 

The Pineapple Theif: Vissions Of The Truth. Have a listen folks.

 

👌 K.

Streamed this and Dissolution - both awesome.  They remind me of Half Moon Run, Royal Blood and Tool (vocals very reminiscent of Maynard on a lot of songs)

 

Thanks Ken (although you keep costing me money!!)  great suggestion

Hi All,

 

For my 15,000th Post it was a tossup between two of my favourite artists, so decided to play both and post together.

 

King Crimson, In The Court of The Crimson King, https://www.discogs.com/King-Crimson-In-The-Court-Of-The-Crimson-King-An-Observation-By-King-Crimson/release/2511718

Love spending your money for youJohn.😃

 

The lead singer of TPT is a guy called Bruce Soord. Superlative voice. Check out his own single albums under his name.

 

Especially his 2019 album, All This Will Be Yours. He has 3 in total.

I have his Wisdom Of Crowds on cd (though that is in collaboration with the lead singer from the band Katatonia, Jonas Renkse), a great listen.

 

All the albums are superb. All This Will Be Yours is my next record purchase. 2 LPs. Going to be a birthday present for myself next month.

 

There you go mate. Just spent another few hundred $s for you😁

👌 K

The Cat Empire - Steal the Light (2009)

I first heard the Cat Empire at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival (around the time of their first album?), their exuberance cutting through our midday Saturday hangovers. More recently they have emerged as a favourite of my nine year old. This one is a loaner from my brother, so we're not so familiar with it. Quite a master stroke getting Graeme Base to do the artwork.

      2014 vinyl release by Jack White 
       
      This "Ultra LP" release features several special features:

      · Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks. "High Ball Stepper" doesn't end with a faded-out distortion as in the digital versions, it is locked instead.
      · Tracks A7 and B8 are hidden tracks pressed on their sides' labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
      · Side A's groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
      · "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
      · Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
      · Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
      · Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
      · Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
      · The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.

      So after finding myself in a music store with that old familiar joy of looking through vinyl albums I wanted to add a turntable to my setup. The Project X1  is what I was thinking I would dip my toe in with. 
       
      I have boxes of vinyl of classical from the old family home, but they are in average to poor condition. (but recordings I cannot get any more) So my question is:
       
      If I am playing both new and old vinyl records,  am I going to destroy the needle? What do others here do about their original and mint collection without killing a $300 needle?
       
      Thanks!
