I start to re-upload all of them plus some new one now in January 2013. Every thing before that date as been deleted by the authority. Enjoy the music and if you like a band just buy it at your music store.

KING CRIMSON / larks tongues in aspic

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic (1975)(30th Anniversary Edit

King Crimson reborn yet again — the newly configured band makes its
debut with a violin (courtesy of David Cross) sharing center stage with
Robert Fripp's guitars and his Mellotron, which is pushed into the
background. The music is the most experimental of Fripp's career up to
this time — though some of it actually dated (in embryonic form) back
to the tail end of the Boz Burrell-Ian Wallace-Mel Collins lineup. And
John Wetton was the group's strongest singer/bassist since Greg Lake's
departure three years earlier. What's more, this lineup quickly
established itself as a powerful performing unit working in a more pure
ly experimental, less jazz-oriented vein than its immediate predecessor.
"Outer Limits music" was how one reviewer referred to it, mixing Cross'
demonic fiddling with shrieking electronics, Bill Bruford's astounding
dexterity at the drum kit, Jamie Muir's melodic and usually understated
percussion, Wetton's thundering (yet melodic) bass, and Fripp's guitar,
which generated sounds ranging from traditional classical and soft
pop-jazz licks to hair-curling electric flourishes. [The remastered
edition, which appeared in the summer of 2000 in Europe and slightly
later in America, features beautifully remastered sound — among other
advantages, it moves the finger cymbals opening the first section of
the title track into sharp focus, with minimal hiss or noise to obscure
them, exposes the multiple percussion instruments used on the opening
of "Easy Money," and gives far more clarity to "The Talking Drum." This
version is superior to any prior CD release of Larks' Tongues in Aspic,
and contains a booklet reprinting period press clippings, session
information, and production background
on the album.] ..Bob Hope
