was RE: Fripp & Eno 1973 / BBC / Peel
yeah, guys- please remember to
change the name of the thread if you're going to digress....
I am waiting for my ex-BBC mate to
send me his copy of the top gear show which featured this fripp&eno set,
& which is the original backwards version of their specially "re-recorded"
version of "no pussyfooting".
he says that it's difficult to tell
exactly what the differences are between this top gear session recording
(mysteriously- "for technical reasons"- made at eno's home & not at the BBC
maida vale studios round the corner from eno's home, where almost all other
BBC sessions were recorded) besides the fact that the BBC (i.e. in this
instance, john peel & john walters) aired the thing backwards because
fripp&eno sent the tape tail-out, per the record industry's
so when I have the thing, I'll turn
it the right way round (in vegas or soundtrack-pro or whatever) & a-b it
with the cd version.
I have a suspicion, & that's
all it is, that it will be almost identical- perhaps a few little edits or an
overdub here & there. it's deeply suspicious that fripp&eno elected to
refuse the hospitality of the BBC studios, less than 500 yards away from eno's
maida vale home, on the grounds that the technicalities of what they were doing
could not be duplicated. the BBC maida vale studio was the birthplace, in this
country anyway, of the whole artform of stringing multiple tape decks together
in the fripp&eno fashion; delia derbyshire & co were doing it at least
ten years earlier.
OK Im a little lost in this thread, where are the working links to
the Fripp and Eno video clips? Can someone please re-post them, or post some new
working links, because I got very excited about these ones, yet for several days
have not been able to download them....
