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. This set is a fitting testament to an intensely creative and radically diverse chapter in Robert Fripp’s career.
