After King Crimson's dissolution in 1974, Robert Fripp embarked on a lengthy sabbatical away from the public eye. His
relocation from Great Britain to New York in February 1978 marked his return as a producer, solo artist, and ‘wild card’
collaborator with an impressive roster of artists including Daryl Hall, Blondie, Peter Gabriel, and David Bowie. Fripp's
first solo album, Exposure, was released in 1979. A further two solo records, Under Heavy Manners/God Save The Queen
and Let The Power Fall followed, and in 1980 he formed The League Of Gentlemen. Described as a New Wave dance
band, this led to King Crimson's reformation in 1981.
Presented over 25CDs, 3DVD discs (audio only), and 4 Blu-Ray discs (audio only), this is the most comprehensive and
detailed account of Robert Fripp’s solo material from that era, much of it previously unreleased. Included are new stereo,
5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Atmos and Surround/Quadraphonic mixes by Steven Wilson and David Singleton. Also
featured is the complete DGM archive of Frippertronics - over 68 hours of Frippertronics concerts and loops archived and
audio restored, with the majority of these available for the first time on disc and many heard for the first time since they
were first performed and recorded between 1977 and 1983.
This set is a fitting testament to an intensely creative and radically diverse chapter in Robert Fripp’s career.
