It Probably Oughtn't Be Called Rock Music




but, this is, in my not-so-humble opinion, among the greatest electric guitar songs of all time. Robert Fripp is so unlike anyone else playing the instrument he really belongs in a class by himself. Although ultimately it would be hard to exclude Adrian Belew from that class.

  1. That is a good song. Nice version. Thanks for posting.

    I'd call it rock, if not rock and roll. But ultimately, as far as categorizing goes, I'll stick with the Duke: "If it sounds good, it is good."

  2. "If it sounds good, it is good."

    I'm almost totally non-genre specific in my musical taste. Crimson is interesting in many ways, not the least of which is that despite using the instrumental norms of guitar based rock, the underlying forms are often totally not rock. The harmonic and rhythmic details, in addition to their sheer complexity don't owe very much to, say, Bo Diddley (RIP) or Chuck Berry. And their approach to improvisation is much close to avant garde than to the blues.

    I'm probably being pedantic, but it all adds up to something that I love.
