The return of Friday Random 10

January 11, 2008, 8:34 am

You thought I’d forgotten all about the Friday Random 10, didn’t you?

  1. Robin & Marian (Nickel Creek, Nickel Creek)
  2. Another Record (Genesis, Abacab)
  3. One More Red Nightmare (King Crimson, Red)
  4. 83 (John Mayer, Room for Squares)
  5. Peace, Be Still (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Three Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest)
  6. Fortress Around Your Heart (Sting, The Dream of the Blue Turtles)
  7. Does Everyone Stare (The Police, Regatta de Blanc)
  8. My Redeemer Lives (Mark Heard, High Noon)
  9. I Get a Kick Out of You (Dave Brubeck, Ken Burns Jazz: Dave Brubeck)
  10. I Need to Know (Marc Anthony, Marc Anthony)

King Crimson (#3 in the list) came in many different varieties, each very different from all the others. But here’s a video of a more recent incarnation of the band doing “Red” from the Red album. I think this is from the mid-1990′s, since the band is in its six-man lineup from the tour supporting the THRAK album. Front and center is the incomparable Tony Levin on bass.
