    If you are referring to the book subtitled "learning King Crimson's impossible song" it is listed under Anthony Garone and not Gibbons(at least on Amazon). Not sure who this Gibbons fellow is.

    It took some time to get it. First Amazon had it, delivered by Seventh Records, later it didn't. Looked at ordering it directly from Seventh Records, but with almost 10 euro posting costs, I thought it was a bit to much. Then I could order it directly from Amazon and I decided to go for it, because I could split the lower postage costs over several albums.

    Deluge Grander-Lunarians is fantastic musically. The vocals are quite weak, but not upfront and there's so much great instrumental music so it isn't really an issue, although there are times I'd love to hear a really good vocalist tackle these gems. DG is one of my favorite artists already. Speaking of favorites:

    Once and Future Band-Deleted Scenes. This hit it on every level for me. The album improves as it goes and the last instrumental blew my socks off. My kind of chords/melodies/rhythm quirks, with tons of feeling, and the drumming is incredible. Plus none of the dissonant harshness that has become overused and predictable of late. This is actually one of my favorite albums of recent years, though I've only heard it twice.

    Marcus King Band - already have heard this, but didn't have it. My favorite blues/rocker. The only album I don't care much for by him is El Dorado.

    Swing Out Sister-Live haven't heard yet, but they are great live, when they are tight and jazzy. I like their Brazilian Bacharach sound. As long as I don't have to hear Breakout. Worst song they've ever done.
