    I hope that "God Save The Queen/Under Heavy Manners" gets a separate release, since it's never been on an official CD. Most of the stuff in this box is "listen once" material for me...

    I wish there was this level of detail for the double duo period of KC in terms of large box sets.

    As I said in the other thread, I'm going to need to see a track list at some point, but I would imagine I'll be passing on this. Never really cared for Exposure and the stuff that was produced around this time period. I'll probably get the Washington Square Church disc though.
    Please don't ask questions, just use google.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    I'm only here to reglaze my bathtub.

    Out of the scope of this set, I think, but I WISH they could reissue the COMPLETE, ORIGINAL version of "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts." I really miss having it with that track that had to be removed. Used to listen to the LP so much, and that CD sounds wrong without the missing song!

    I like Exposure a lot but I'd never have imagined that era would merit a package of this size. Just the fact that this package exists makes me assume there's something there, and the other big Crimson boxes were generally treasure troves, but still...

    That is a great album but I would be fine with 98 discs. 101 seems like overkill.

    Exposure box? Count me in!

    A remix of SAOTW (plus, I believe, live recordings and other Toyah & Fripp goodies) is supposed to be released this year.

    I'll be happy with a Wilson remix of the Toyah/Fripp "Rebel Yell".

    Many were previously available as downloads.
    I would count on all of these to be on the box set

    The Frippertronics stuff is indeed a treasure trove, and that is likely what makes up the most of this box. Because of that I find the title referencing Exposure to be an odd choice. I would have called it "Loops and Reels" or something.

    The Exposure album itself was a reasonably good one-off from an artist who was re-inventing himself. Some great tunes but also filler. And AFAIK Fripp never toured Exposure. So I don't believe Exposure fans are getting anything more than the album proper, along with some not very revelatory demos, in this box.

    I can say I won't likely bother buying this.

    I will totally end up buying this.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    The focus is really on Fripp's whole NYC period, including the League of Gentlemen as well as Exposure and the early Frippertronics. It might have been nice to call the box Last of the Great New York Heartthrobs (working title for Exposure) while retaining the Exposure cover art.

    I do see Exposure itself--an album with a long and fraught history, that already exists in multiple versions and mixes--as very much the heart of the set. I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the ancillary material as "not very revelatory"; I'm willing to bet there's some real heat tucked away towards the end of the set on those "Blasts and Blasms" discs. Count me in on this one.

    I would be happy to see you proved right on this... I just haven't heard anything of particular value among the Exposure-era demos (mostly with Wetton and Phil Collins AFAICR) that DGM has made available digitally over the last decade. Is there more interesting stuff that has not been released? Possibly. I don't follow this era all that closely.

    Yes. I checked the pre-order page for Exposures on the Inner Knot site and it is 3DVDs (not 4 as listed on the DGM article for the set).

    I am all over the CD/DVD Exposure re-release.

    Fortuitously, I had the most previous re-release of that album in an eCommerce shopping cart that essentially serves as my wish list, but removed it a few weeks ago when actually making a purchase. Kismet. Seeing the announcement of Stevie Wilson 5.1 edition made me smile.

    The Stormy Monday rarities discs that have been available for download and have been slowly getting released as ohysical media have a some Exposure era jams of Fripp, Wetton, and Phil Collins. Its jammy stuff. Maybe Asbury Parkish is the best thing to say about it.

    I have to wonder if discs 30 and 31 will contain this material.

    I can picture it now:
    "It has come to our attention that "First Inaugural Address to the I.A.C.E. Sherborne House" is playing at a slightly incorrect speed."

    I suppose it would be too much to ask that some be done like that, covering Belew's first three solo albums. I don't know what kind of bonus goodies you could include. I think maybe some live footage from his Twang Bar King tour MIGHT exist somewhere, and then there's the Electronic Guitar "instructional" video he did circa 84. But probably not enough stuff to stretch it out to 33 discs.

  24. #24
    There is no mention of live footage from that period, so maybe these won't be included.
