    IIRC, Fripp made similar edits in the 40th Anniversary release of In The Court Of The Crimson King as well.

    If you ever write a piece on the most under-rated musician of all time, may I humbly nominate Michael Giles. There hasn’t been a drummer since that sounds anything like him.

    • Agree 100% on Michael Giles . . . . I trust and hope (and assume) that you have the Giles, Giles and Fripp and McDonald and Giles albums. Less well know, but equally fun, are his work on Anthony Phillips’ “Wise After the Event” (one of the best Genesis alum albums ever) and “Sides,” and the COMPLETELY unexpected “Ghost Dance” from ’96 with M. Giles, David Cunningham, and Jamie Muir (!) of “Lark’s Tongue” Crimson.

      And I actually kinda like that idea of most under-rated musician of all time . . . . . . hmmmmm . . . . (filling mental lists to see if there are 64 worth evaluating . . . )
