This live performance presented by the King Biscuit Flower Hour is an above average production of Wakeman's best-loved tunes. King Biscuit appropriately keeps the concert full-length, without any splicing, so that the songs are enjoyed exactly as they were during the staging. Wakeman electrifies San Francisco's Winterland Theater with stunning versions of "Lancelot and the Black Night" and "Merlin the Magician," two of this album's finest cuts. Particular attention is given to "The Forest," a track rarely played live from Wakeman, but placed fittingly in the middle of the eight selections here. Recorded in 1975 at the height of progressive rock's glory days, Wakeman's attentiveness and passion can be felt from the opening keyboard surge. His accompanying musicians play a large part as well, with some expert guitar work from Jeffrey Crampton and spectacular vocal execution via Ashley Holt.
Moot Point are proud to announce the release of the debut album from King Moot, a Dorset-based electronic duo. It Just Fell follows last year’s single, Crushed Elms, and contains nine curiously crafted electronic pieces. King Moot like to describe themselves as the masters of gloomy electronic soundscapes. Influences include Shane Carruth, Cliff Martinez, Air, Boards Of Canada, and Modus-era Photek.
