Thank you very much for putting up all the great King Crimson, Fripp and Bruford related recordings. These ABWH gigs are great, I saw the show in Toronto. Do you have any Crimson from the 1970s you could add to your already amazing blog? Please and thank you.

Alas, I have already shared all of the KC gigs that I have.

I was wondering if the full shows from your Live Improvs series were available. Maybe one day they will re-appear somewhere on the interwebs.

Again, many thanks. Your site is a tasty treat and a real treasure trove for the fans. It was especially nice to see the vinyl rip of Indisciple Mining Rocks, the first boot I ever bought. A truly mindbending performance, I can only hope that DGMLive releases a soundboard recording of it.

May I take it you don't have the 1989-08-03 ABWH show from Philadelphia? I was there and just decided I ought to hear it again yesterday, and was therefore astounded to see this series appear here today.

As always, thanks for the music, and I'm glad to see you back to regular posting.

No, sir. I don't have the Philly show. Sorry. I've been to Philly several times for shows. Seems like a nice place to live. Strange parking, though.
