    Islands playing right now. The older HDCD encoded disc sounds pretty rad on an HDCD player (my olde Rotel 951). Too bad that format didn't travel farther. Love this album...this was the classiKc KC album that sort of evaded me for a long time...then I stopped being an asshole and started digging. Wait, I'm still an asshole....ignore that last part. This album sounds like normal Henry Cow at points.

    Absolutely love Islands. "Formentera Lady" would be a great addition to the current Crim's setlist. I think I recall reading that Fripp is not a fan of the song, though. Too bad.

    Italian singer Alice has worked with some of the members of KC through the years. I remember the first time I heard of her was on Park Hotel with Tony Levin. On her album Viaggio In Italia she covers the song Islands, together with Tim Bowness, another one who worked with KC-members:

    So, with all the Crimson Genes floating about this thread, make a comprehensive 3 CD (240 minutes+-) playlist to represent the collected output.

    I love it too, but that thin, bloodless ECM mix kills me. Bruford & Levin sound as though they are playing in another room through a closed door.
