Still is the first solo album released in 1973 by Pete Sinfield, lyricist of progressive rock band King Crimson. At the time, Sinfield was involved with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Greg Lake assisted with vocals, while King Crimson alumni provided other assistance.
It was interesting to listen what kind of result comes from the musical vision of King Crimson’s court lyricist and its musicians without the presence of Robert Fripp…
Pete Sinfield is best known for his contribution as lyricist for King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. His solo album from 1973 was one of the earliest releases on ELP’s Manticore label and features contributions from Greg Lake, Ian Wallace, Mel Collins, John Wetton, Keith Tippett and many more luminaries. This edition adds nine previously unreleased early album mixes and two bonus tracks on an extra CD and has restored the album’s artwork in a deluxe package and is issued on the reactivated Manticore label, under an exclusive license to Cherry Red Records and overseen by the people who brought you Esoteric Recordings and Atomhenge.
Alongside Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer and Genesis, King Crimson has been one of the most emblematic British progressive rock bands of all time. Always creatively led by Robert Fripp, the group has gone through numerous member changes and sound mutations. After several years of hard work, Music Brokers is proud to present The Many Faces Of King Crimson, an album where we will find hard to find works and lesser known projects from most of the members that at some point were part of the band. The Many Faces Of King Crimson is a monumental project, a triple album where we can listen to the solo work of drummer Andy McCulloch, lyricist Pete Sinfield, bassist Boz Burrell, drummer Ian Wallace, singer and bassist Gordon Haskell…
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
This excellent album saw PFM breaking new ground, with the inclusion of fretless bass (the first time I heard that instrument), and a jazzier feel overall. Four of the five tracks with vocals are sung in English, but the Pete Sinfield (ex Crimson) lyrics of earlier English language releases (like "The World Became the World") are missing this time out.
