An original 1986 U.S. test pressing of Robert Fripp and the League of Crafty Guitarists Live, with the original cue sheet.
Offered for sale is an original U.S. test pressing of the 1986 LP Robert Fripp and the League of Crafty Guitarists Live, featuring King Crimson founder and guitarist Robert Fripp, complete with cue sheet.
Here’s what Allmusic.com had to say:
A guitar teacher, Fripp assembled this group of seventeen acoustic guitar players from his students and played shows doing his instrumentals. It takes that many guitars, playing the same parts, to recreate the volume, sustain, and fullness Fripp usually gets by using a couple of electric guitars himself (and there’s also some electric music to prove that point). But the tone achieved by the acoustics is unique and as tense as Fripp’s music usually is, this record is also surprisingly vibrant.
The copy offered for sale is a pre-production test pressing, with custom Hub-Servall Record Mfg. labels. It was issued in a plain white cover with a cue sheet attached. Cover and cue sheet are M-; the record is VG++ with just a couple of very light scuffs. A nice and unusual copy of a nice sounding record.
