Dear Team,

This is an open announcement to King Crimson enthusiasts to attend a
playback of Epitaph, an official DGM two volume bootleg of King Crimson
(mainly) live in 1969, in London on Saturday 15th. March, 1997 at 14.30 or
15.00. The official release date is one month later.

If anyone wishes to attend, please contact the DGM office at the postal
address, by fax, or by e-mail, by 14 February. When we have an idea of how
many enthusiasts are likely to be coming, we'll book an appropriate size
listening room. (Our guess is 50 -100).

The quality of sound on the first two volumes varies from poor to very
good. The recordings include the very first and very last of Crimso the
Great in 1969, beginning at the BBC in Maida Vale and ending at the
Fillmore West, San Francisco. They come in a box with a 60+ page booklet
with commentaries, controversies, conversation and chit-chat.

We shall be simultaneously releasing Volumes Three and Four (from the
Chesterfield and Plumpton shows) by mail order only, direct from DGM in
Europe and the US. The sound on these is appalling and far too horrific to
sell in a shop. Collectors please note: expectations of bootlegs are low;
expectations of formal releases, although bootlegs, are high. Abandon your
expectations here, please: the sound is wretched. Both of these shows have
been available on bootleg CDs for several years. The sound on the DGM
volumes will be better than available anywhere else, mainly because of our
care, time and equipment. We shall be selling them as
two-for-the-price-of-one. They will fit into the box accompanying the first
two volumes.

David Singleton's work to bring the tapes of all four volumes to a
listenable state has been, in some cases, a rite of necromancy. This
project would have been quite impossible without very recent technology,
David's commitment and perseverance.

The complete box and 4CDs will be available at the playback for pre-release
purchase. Probably, we'll also make available other DGM catalogue and
goodies.

David and I will both be at the playback. Please let us know how many of
you are coming so we can get in enough tea bags. Credits for Volumes One
and Two follow.

Robert.
