Product Description

Much bootlegged, though never heard in even reasonable audio quality, this concert – one of a handful undertaken for Fripp & Eno in 1975 – is routinely described as “legendary”. Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it’s easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now & perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers & the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts & general confusion.

Thanks to the discovery & restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible – with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM – to isolate, de-noise & match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

I can heartily recommend this to any and everyone who liked the original Fripp and Eno classics, or Fripp's later solo outings or his work with Theo Travis.

Rather wonderful versions of material from No Pussyfooting and Evening Star rub shoulders with hints and snippets of King Crimson and Discreet Music to magical effect.

The restoration work is excellent, as the sound quality is very good.

The inclusion of the drone tapes is the icing and cherry on a very rich and tasty cake.

Verified Purchase
This is truly a gem and every aspect a big thank you to the work gone into make this available
The concert at last shows outside the studio the dynamic of the exciting creativity of this two individuals that together to fuse into very profound and very special
I am a painter and this music has never left my turntable since both albums came out. So a treat now to hear live this pieces and so much more from this particular period that did not make a possible third album
The third cd of loops is my big Thankyou and worth it just for this treat of wonderful new and old and fussed material.
Please do not hesitate to purchase a really wonderful purchase of a lot of beautiful thoughtful music
Thank you gentlemen

I knew Fripp- well King Crimson, and Eno, but not Fripp & Eno before hearing this. Having had it on my wish list as a result of a review somewhere for some time before I heard it I have to admit that it helps to realise that it is a recording of an historic event, with a baffled and bewildered audience making their mystified presence felt. But even before reading an explanation of what I was hearing the music comes through, it is clear that there is some musical insight here, it is not just messing around with tape recorders (I've done plenty of that myself!) but a real musical idea, worked out and coming at you through your speakers and forty years' advances in musical technology. I'm not sure I want to hear No Pussyfooting now, will it stand up to comparison with this 'real experience'?

I was kind of dreading hearing this album it as it contains live music off three of my favourite studio albums albums of all time; "No Pussyfooting", "Evening Star" and "Discreet Music" and was put together from bootlegs and and personal tapes of the artists. I need not have worried because the quality is fabulous and the artistry and innovation on show here is breathtaking. The whole concept behind the concert with its minimalist approach accompanied by the film "Berlin Horse" was, as the CD booklet explains, years ahead of its time. This is a superb CD which captures two of modern musics great innovators creating some of the most wonderful and beautiful music you will ever hear. Many modern musicians are still trying to catch up with these two and the ideas they shared. This is a glorious and emphatic display of just how good they were/are and how large the debt a lot of modern music owes them.
