Live At The OrpheumImport
200g super-heavyweight vinyl version limited to a single pressing.
Released to coincide with the 46th anniversary of King Crimson's formation in January 1969, Live At The Orpheum comprises performances from the band's critically acclaimed, sold-out 2014 US tour.
41 minutes of live material from the new seven piece King Crimson line-up, including classics such as Starless, Sailor's Tale and The Letters.
King Crimson has performed, recorded and released material in its own inimitable manner for the past 46 years. As the band enters its 47th year of operation in 2015, the occasion is marked with the first release culled from the band's Autumn 2014 US tour.
Comprised of 41 minutes of material by the newest incarnation of the band fronted by the line-up's formidable three drummer setup, Live At The Orpheum has been mixed from 24bit multi-track performances recorded at the band's two concerts at the Los Angeles venue. Featuring a mixture of new and old King Crimson material - some being performed live for the first time - the album makes an ideal
recorded debut for the septet.
For those who travelled from all over the world to see the US shows, it's an opportunity to relive the power, precision and sheer musicality of the concerts. For those who couldn't attend but wanted to, it's an opportunity to hear why the concerts generated such excitement.
Recorded Sept. 30th, October 1st at The Orpheum Theatre, Los Angeles

As Robert Fripp had done with King Crimson's first live LP, Earthbound (1972), USA is a single-disc concert package documenting the quartet during its 1974 swing through North America. As with its predecessor, USA was also issued as a sonic cenotaph of the concurrently defunct Krim. So insistent that the band would not be resurrected, Fripp concluded the LP's liner notes at the time with another three-letter epitaph: R.I.P. The 1973/1974 King Crimson included the collective efforts of Fripp (guitar/mellotron), David Cross (violin), John Wetton (bass/vocals), and Bill Bruford (drums/percussion). USA also includes notable violin overdubs by Eddie Jobson on the tracks Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 2 and 21st Century Schizoid Man, as well as electric piano addendums to Lament. The opening drone re-creates the typical performance prelude, lifted directly from the Fripp and Brian Eno sonic sculpture No Pussyfooting (1973). The brusque juxtaposition of the ethereal opening to the aggressive Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 2 jolts the audience into the rips and snorts found during this tautly rendered instrumental. The readings of Lament and Exiles demonstrate this band's overwhelming sonic sensibilities. They are able to contrast and incorporate thick, viscous melodies and rhythms with alternately underlying sensitive, as well as ultimately beautiful, musical responses.1. Walk on.. No Pussyfooting

Music performed and composed by Robert Fripp & Brian Eno
Brian Eno is usually credited with the claim that everyone who originally bought a Velvet Underground album subsequently formed a band. It's no less valid to suggest that many of those involved in electronic music might not have been but for "No Pussyfooting" and "Evening Star". Indeed few contemporary albums can claim as much lasting influence as "No Pussyfooting" by Fripp & Eno. It's safe to say that for the vast majority of buyers at the time of its initial release in 1973, this was their first exposure to the small world of electronic music. It's equally safe to say it wasn't their last. The equipment used was, by modern standards, primitive. The ideas expressed were, by any standards, enormous. Many went on to have careers based on the possibilities suggested by the album. Fripp & Eno - to their eternal credit - were too busy working as musicians to ever 'milk it' in that sense. One further full album, "Evening Star", was issued in 1975. There were occasional collaborations, but no further recordings under the Fripp & Eno banner until the emergence of "The Equatorial Stars" in late 2004 as a limited edition release via the artists' websites, followed by a full release in 2005 on CD.
However, it was never issued on vinyl, until now.
"The Equatorial Stars" consists of a series of seven soundscapes. The evident care taken in the construction & presentation of the sound world makes the totality of the work so convincing. The textures & atmospheres forming the heart of each track manage to subtly change & alter, while leaving ample space for Robert's guitar solos to emerge from the centre. The album was Fripp & Eno's opportunity to redefine an area of music they helped to launch into the mainstream in the first instance.
It is also, incidentally, Robert Fripp's personal favourite of his many collaborations with Brian Eno.1. Meissa

DGM & Panegyric are proud to present the third in a series of King Crimson high quality vinyl reissues with the September release of "Lizard". The album's return to the 12" vinyl format is newly cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp. Manufactured on 200 gram super-heavyweight vinyl & housed in a reprint of the original beautiful gatefold sleeve, this edition also contains bonus MP3 codes giving access to a download of a transfer of an original 1970 pressing.
"Lizard" - King Crimson's third studio album & second recording of 1970, was, like its predecessor "In the Wake of Poseidon", the product of a studio band. It was also the first Crimson album for which Robert Fripp provided all of the music. Remarkably self-contained & sounding somewhat atypical for a King Crimson album - even by the standards of a band that rarely sounded similar from album to album, "Lizard" is an often overlooked & under-appreciated gem from their early years. Certainly at the time of release, anyone expecting an extension of the soundscapes introduced & explored on the band's earlier two albums was in for a surprise.
"Lizard" featured a lighter, more delicate sound than the earlier albums - an approach perhaps necessitated by an extended instrumental lineup. The expanded range of instruments allowed for intricately interwoven instrumental passages - with Fripp's guitar & Tippett's piano pleasingly to the fore - and this combination, along with the prominence afforded to Mel Collins & the guest players on the album's main title suite, led some to believe that Fripp was guiding Crimson towards the world of jazz & away from rock altogether. But such claims were misguided. Crimson was, as ever, seeking to expand the vocabulary of rock music & "Lizard" was, in some ways, the band's most ambitious album to date.
As this lineup never toured, very little of the material was performed live & "Lizard" remained a product of the studio environment & the musicians who performed on it. "Lizard" remains a fascinating, intriguing album - an album only a band called King Crimson could make - even if it was a very different King Crimson to that which had gone before or would come after. The album's reputation has undergone a serious re-evaluation in recent years, due in no small part to the overwhelmingly positive nature of the reception given to Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp's 2009 CD/DVD-A edition. As a result the album has never been as popular in its 42 years' history.1. Cirkus (Including: Entry Of The Chameleons)

Surfing With The AlienImport
Joe Satriani is one of the world's best and most well-known guitarists. Early in his career, Satriani worked as a guitar instructor, and among his students were now famous guitarists Steve Vai, Larry LaLonde, Kirk Hammett, Andy Timmons, Charlie Hunter and Alex Skolnick. He himself is influenced by blues-rock guitar icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and Jeff Beck. Satriani worked with a range of musicians from several musical genres, including Mick Jagger, Deep Purple, John Petrucci, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, Brian May, Patrick Rondat, Paul Gilbert, Adrian Legg, and Robert Fripp. He is currently the lead guitarist for the supergroup Chickenfoot.
'Surfing with the Alien' is Satriani's second album, released in 1987 and meant his breakthrough to a larger audience. It was the first instrumental rock record to enter the charts in a very long time. Although the album contains fast and complex songs as well as slower, melodic songs Satriani's unique style is always easily recognizable.1. Surfing With the Alien

A Period of Review (1975-1983)
Expert Mastering By Greg Davis, Liner Notes By K. Leimer And Dave Segal
Double LP Packaging Features Unique Reverse Flap Exterior, Full Color Eurosleeves, &
For the third installment in RVNG Intl.'s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s
Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original
Recordings: 1975-1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimer's vast archives and
highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried
his music to infinite resonance.
Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family
permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerry's teenage interests and artistic experiments
blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s,
Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying import copies of NME
and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions
he read of Can, Neu! and Faust-innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art-discourse into music
The tape-manipulated serenity Leimer experienced with Cluster's II was a key revelation.
Leimer realized the potential to compose with minimal training and scoured pawnshops
for cheap instruments and recording equipment to transpose his wayward musical instincts.
Leimer's sound palette and composition soon refined and heightened with the accessibility of
dynamic equipment such as the Micromoog and TEAC multi-track tape machines.
Synchronously, the Terry Riley indebted loop-based compositions of Robert Fripp and
Brian Eno's No Pussyfooting inspired Leimer to form recursive musical passages of bare
timbre and melody that would become hallmarks of his sound. "The loop provided an
instant structure-a sort of fatalism," recollects Leimer in A Period of Review's liner notes. "The
participation of the tape machine in shaping and extending the music was a key to setting
self-deterministic systems in motion and held a clear relationship to my interests in fine art."
The underground music scene of Seattle/Olympia in late 70s was small but seeded.
The vestiges of prog rock pompously pummeled the few clubs and record shops before
punk and New Wave became the rage. Leimer sought to support a growing community of
experimental composers by launching the Palace of Lights record label in 1979 with his wife
Dorothy Cross (this was years prior to the birth of regional titans K Records and Sub Pop).
Leimer rarely performed live, averting the litmus of instant appreciation for his solitary
studio pursuits. Tellingly, the "K." that abbreviated Leimer's first name was a nod to Kafka's
doomed pariah Josef K (from The Trial and The Castle). This gives a sense of the reclusive
and literary realm Leimer was fond of working in. Despite his reticence, Leimer's debut 1980
album Closed System Potentials would reach a receptive audience, and eventually sell more
than 3,000 copies thanks in part to Cross's persistent advocation to independent distributors
A Period of Review focuses on unheard material outside of the work Leimer offered on
Palace of Lights, though even that music could be considered relatively "unheard." The thirty
tracks of A Period of Review may have remained a mystery on moldy reels until now, but
Leimer's entire catalog of generative music remains pristine in its absolute power.
Liner notes were crafted by Seattle writer David Segal. Top-tier mastering was done by
Greg Davis, who produced the compilation with Palace of Lights artist Robert Carlberg, RVNG
and Kerry Leimer himself, who continues making music to this day.LP 1

Originally released in 2007, 'Fear Of A Blank Planet' was Porcupine Tree's ninth studio album. It was the band's biggest selling album at the time, was their first album to break into the Billboard top 100 in the USA as well as charting across Europe, earned the band a Grammy nomination and has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's Greatest Prog Albums Of All Time.
'Fear Of A Blank Planet' was an ambitious 50 minute piece of music made of 6 tracks that flow together to create a cohesive whole, the British art-rockers Porcupine Tree created a concept album based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel Lunar Park, with lyrics that addressed how the adolescent protagonist battled his bipolar and attention-deficit disorders with a regimen of prescription drugs and Internet overstimulation.
The music used sprawling vocal melodies, atmospheric guitars and drums that tumbled through chaotic passages to echo the main character's manic-depressive states.
'Fear Of A Blank Planet' features guest appearances from Robert Fripp (King Crimson) , Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson and ex-Japan keyboardist Richard Barbieri.
