Cliff Richard has been selling out stadiums for longer. You might find him hanging around the toilets...
Not so sure about the former. :lol:

Those who neither know nor care are the vast majority, and are a happy folk, to be envied by the minority classes."

Anderson is missed. We need more elves and fairies bullshit.

Sounds loike a Howe solo cd.

These are the stink-tracks:
Dare to Know
Minus the Man
The Western Edge
A Living Island
Sister Sleeping Soul
Mystery Tour

As you can see, almost a cd's worth of hogo.

Then there is talk of the one track that appears to be plagarism of a monkman library track.

Agree about Yes not being the same without Anderson, but I think Drama is a decent album.

King Crimson 'Lizard' (1970)

Image

King Crimson have always had an incredible work-ethic, releasing 7 studio albums between 1969 and 1974 with constantly shifting lineups and an exploratory spirit that remains to this day.

'Lizard' is a delicate, introspective record with many Jazz leanings and Classical phrases. The side-long 'Prince Rupert Awakes' features Jon Anderson on vocals and gives an idea of what Yes would have done had Fripp joined them.

The 200g 40th Anniversary vinyl edition sounds wide-open and sumptuously detailed, also the beautiful gatefold cover is faithfully recreated. This may not be Crimson's best-known record but it is certainly one to treasure.

King Crimson 'Three of a Perfect Pair' (1984)

Image

After a near-implosion, the 80's Crim regrouped for a final recording, 'Three of a Perfect Pair' - the title song about a relationship where one of the couple is schizophrenic. This is a record of two sides; side one is 'commercial' with accessible songs and instrumental workouts and side two has KC at their most exploratory and demanding.

The playing is, as always, exemplary and the material is strong - but the group had lost their mojo and disbanded after this. Although all four would return in the double-trio lineup for 1995's 'THRAK'.

An album that has its moments and is certainly worth hearing. :guiness;
