King Crimson – Indisciple Mining RocksTracks:SIDE 1:1. ELEPHANT TALK*2. RED3. THE SHELTERING SKY SIDE 2:1. THELA HUN GINJEET*2. TURKISH TEA3. UNNAMED4. LARK'S TONGUE IN ASPIC PT.25. PARTING WORDSRecorded live at Stonybrook University, NY, 2/28/82, except for* recorded live on the Fridays ABC TV show 12/5 (or 4 ?)/81.Notes:The original record was made to look like a promotional copy of Warner Bros. in “Discipline” alike design. Indisciple Mining Rocks contains stuff from the early 1982 tour from a show at Stony Brook NY and two songs from the Fridays ABC TV show--"Elephant Talk" and "Thela Hun Ginjeet".What makes this recording exceptional? Here it is:There are two instrumental pieces from Stonybrook which are prototypes/work in progress. One is the prototype of “The Howler”, the other one wasn´t released. "Turkish Tea" became “The Howler”, the other one was unnamed.The album concludes with a brief bit of audience-Fripp dialogue: "Louder" (…) "I here the request from this the gentleman to play louder" (…) "I would hm, I make one suggestion if we´re not loud enough so you care to listen more attentively" plus a snippet from a radio interview, on the same topic. Great!The two songs from ABC TV are great too. “Thela Hun Gijet” is simply breathtaking (IMHO). It´s an abbreviated version (due to the limited song length on TV I guess) and with “live commentary” from Adrian. Technical:Source: unknown > vinyl > wav > Wavelab 5.0 > CD > EAC > flac I did only minor editing work to keep the athmosphere of the original recording and kept those rough cuts between the songs. I just deleted the vinyl rumble and major clicks and did some minor EQing.I didvided the “Parting Words” in two separate tracks. So, we have 9 tracks in total, not 8 like the vinyl.MD5 file includedfinally: Enjoy!
Great compilation, Doc, so thank you very much.Keep up the great job! Crimson rules!!best, K.
Actually got this record in the mid-80's. Mine had too many pops and clicks but this version is so much cleaner. Nice to hear again after all those years. Great work and thanks.
