From Inner Knot album listing:
“It’s always been a joke in the King Crimson camp that there’s never a line for the
women’s restrooms during intermissions,” said Deborah. “King Crimson plays loud and
it’s often intense and raucous. But it can also be haunting and melodic, with some of the
most beautiful lyrics ever. We wanted to help uncover that sweetness and introduce the
songs to a different type of audience with ‘A Romantic’s Guide to King Crimson.’”
“The album has amazing contributions from all the musicians involved, especially the
TOAPP (Three of a Perfect Pair Music Masters Camp) artists,” said Pat. “We
experimented together and since they were already lifelong Crim Heads, they were
totally into reconfiguring the classic performances or developing totally new parts. So,
get ready. You’ll hear some fantastic detail in their playing.”
The recording features material they chose and arranged together with lead vocals by
Deborah, a creative Tour de Force in her own right, and with Pat drumming and
producing.
“We compiled King Crimson songs and searched for the romanticism in them, then
rearranged them,” said Deborah. “The addition of a girl singer automatically changes the
feel of those songs and places them in a different genre. Our idea is to create a way for
people, especially women, to appreciate the beauty of King Crimson’s music without the
fear and sometimes resistance attached to the word ‘prog’ getting in the way. We slow
the songs way down and strip them back to their essential lyrics and melodies.”
“In the Crimson tradition, we approached every song as if it was brand new,” said Pat.
“At first, it involved tinkering with 20-plus songs in hotel rooms using iPhone apps to
choose what worked best for us. We first focused on the lyrics. The words had to
resonate and the arrangements had to develop a prog-meets-pop twist to meet my hopes.
We had no desire to duplicate the original arrangements. In fact, just the opposite. I was
trying to discover where else they could go to expose sweetness, sort of like the old days
of cassettes and giving a loved one a mixtape. It’s a gift to fans and a family of former
Crims.“
Comes in a vertical six-panel digifile with a hype sticker on the shrink.
