Jean-Luc Ponty is touring with Jon Anderson again, on the off chance that anyone still gives a rabbit's toss about any of that...

King C!

"Waiting Man" live!
  Fri. 5/20/16 12:26am P-90:

...at the pier...I was there, they were introduced by then-Mayor Edward Koch
  Fri. 5/20/16 12:27am Nick Name:

ha - thx for sharing that P-90
  Fri. 5/20/16 12:28am rw:

That's pretty cool P-90! You'll need to get yourself a copy of that record. I think I saw them in Los Angeles around that time. So '80s!
  Fri. 5/20/16 12:33am P-90:

They were introduced by the mayor of NY because they were the first act to play the summer series at the pier on the Hudson, and he would come out to inaugurate the series. I believe they were the first act 2 years in a row, and Koch came out both times and (joked?) about what a big Crimson fan he was.

...because... now I'M curious!

Hearing King Crimson after emerging from a 90 minute hellish drive from Manhattan to Brooklyn made me happy to no end. THANKS!

Hi Nick!
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:12am coelacanth:

Thanks Scraps. though it doesn't confirm or deny Koch's appreciation, there is a post from a guy about 10 down who claimed Ed Koch was in fact front row center for the show.
(i'm going to ask my sister anyway, just to see what she knows!)
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:13am coelacanth:

hey A!
  Fri. 5/20/16 1:15am P-90:

@Scraps: Thanks for finding that photo! Yes, it was the consecutive "Beat" and "Three of a Perfect Pair" tours that both opened the summer pier series, Koch was there to introduce them both times (note the "3oaPP" t-shirt he's proudly displaying). In fact I think they played two nights each time, the only act at the pier to do so in both those years. Really classic shows.
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:16am Scraps deSelby:

So love Fred Hopkins. Deep down bass.
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:18am Scraps deSelby:

Two time saw Fred Hopkins and Diedre Murray on cello
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:22am coelacanth:

i went to a bunch of those pier shows, but not KC. i tried to like "discipline", but really didn't. i don't remember "beat", though i heard it.
...hearing these recordings i realise that they were much better live in that incarnation than on record, and i wish i'd seen them. (...for 8 bucks or whatever it was!)
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:23am Alejandroool:

lovely tracks!
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:24am Scraps deSelby:

I liked Discipline so much, it's probably my favorite KC except maybe Red.
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:44am Alejandroool:

Just say yes to the Heretic's bargain
Avatar Fri. 5/20/16 1:48am coelacanth:


...and it was my exit theme...
Thanks Nick! ciao peeps.
