Fripp and Eno’s concert gets physical

Previously available only on bootlegs – and for a few years as a download only album from DGM Records – concert recordings made by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno in 1975, soon after the two had come up with their second album, “Evening Star,” and set about doing a minimal stage trek, are to be released on CD. Out on September 15th, “Live in Paris 28.05.1975” is a 3CD set featuring the duo’s performance in its entirety – mostly material from the aforementioned LP, plus a track off its predecessor, 1973’s “(No Pussyfooting)” – with audio restored and synced with the original studio backing loops as used by Eno and Fripp before the audience, while a single disc comprises the loops only, as well as the reversed loop for “Wind On Water” utilized on “Evening Star.”
