    Here's a little update in the world of King Crimson and Discipline Global Mobile:
    Ladies of the Road has finally been released. This is a 2-disc compilation of live performances from the second touring lineup of Boz Burell, Mel Collins, Ian Wallace, and Fripp. This is a great way to hear this band without getting into the Collector's Club or dealing with the really bad sonics of a the Earthbound album. Since these recordings were taken from Collector's Club archival recordings, the sound quality probably varies. Of the four Club releases, one sounds pretty bad, one is decent, and two are surprisingly good. The first disc includes Pictures of a City, Groon, and Get They Bearings. The second disc is a bunch of solos and jams strung together.
    Even though I probably have all this music in the Club releases, the second disc, called "Schizoid Men," should be a real riot to hear.

    Mike- (Yes, I knew from the title what it was! [​IMG] ) I just got USA. I'm sad. [​IMG] They didn't fix the stupid fade out on Easy Money. Back to my own personal compilation derived from the Great Deceiver...
    (I heard a little while ago that TGD was going to be remastered?)

    Kevin,
    I think if they would have changed anything from the original release, people would have complained that they were altering the album (which is different than adding stuff). I personally don't care since I've never heard the album before, so it's all new (and good) to me.

    I'm pretty sure The Great Deceiver is not getting re-mastered. The first release was discontinued and the set has been put back on the market (don't know if it's exactly the same packaging), so that may be what you are thinking of. Either the way, the master is pretty decent so there are no plans and no call for any remastering here. The set is out, available, sounds great, and most highly recommended.

    I just placed an order at DGM:

    King Crimson- Ladies of the Road
    Adrian Belew- Mr. Music Head
    Peter Hammill- X My Heart
    BTM- Bremen Town Musicians
    David Sylvian- Gone To Earth
    T-Shirt- Heavy ConstruKtion

    This will be my first Peter Hammill solo album. I do have two Van Der Graaf Generator albums, so I know I'm in for something quite... odd. The musical adventure continues...

    TGD is kind of neat. There is a set from Pgh and the Stanley Theater (the name of the venue on TGD is wrong). Grew up in Pgh. Wasn't "aware" of Crimson way back then (just barely too young), but the Stanley has always been my absolute favorite place to see live bands for the sound. (Saw BOC there a few times, Peter Gabriel on the Security tour, the Plasmatics [​IMG], etc.)
