Steaks From Sacred Cows, Cheap
Wow-- there's a gem... overlooked then and mostly forgotten now. Cleveland Bob and I happen to see Fripp by himself that summer demonstrating "Frippertronics" in the basement of a funky record store in Cleveland Hts. that summer of '79. Sweltering hot night and Fripp bought us all sodas!I remember thinking at the time what an odd mix of singers: Hall, Gabriel, Peter Hammill, the Roches, but it all worked.Great post!
Never heard of Fripp but he reminded me for a fleeting moment of the guy who did "Popsicle Toes."
It could have been all Hall on the mic if the suits hadn't fretted about his career (and their percentage), Reddy - But I rather like the all-over-the-map feel of Exposure myself....Ooh, Michael Franks, Utah. There's an eclectic career, admirable in its own way.;>)
Loved that album! What's doubly odd is that I posted the Gabriel/Fripp version of Here Comes The Flood on LMS just this morning before I visited here.And Utah, comparing Robert Fripp to Michael Franks deserves some brand of penal hardship. db...do your worst.
