A few weeks ago we were stunned by the enormity of the “Exposures” BSOG featuring all of Robert Fripp’s solo work from 1977-1981. I was intrigued to see that new 2021 remasterings of the “God Save The Queen/Under Heavy Manners” and “Let The Power Fall” albums were in it but I did not have the time or resources to buy a $205 box of 32 CDs just to get the two albums. How lovely that saner heads have prevailed and anyone who wants those canonical albums on the silver disc can now get them easily at an individual price.

- God Save The Queen
- Under Heavy Manners
- The Zero Of The Signified

- Music on Hold
The new remaster by the tireless David Singleton, who is kept verrrry busy overseeing the Discipline Global Mobile empire of releases. It features the original contents of the 1979 LP along with two relevant bonus tracks. “God Save The King” was the [then new] title track of the 1985 CD mashup of this album and the “League Of Gentlemen” LP. “Music On Hold” was a new track that was discovered while researching the “Exposures” set [and its 25+ discs of unreleased material] and deemed worthy on inclusion here.

- 1984 [mix two]
There has been a 1989 CD of “Let The Power Fall” but I was completely unaware of it until recent years and its OOP cost was above my pain threshold. I only ever got even the LP about ten years ago. In the time of release, Fripp seemed to be releasing more albums than I could keep up with at the time. This came just weeks after “League Of Gentlemen” which I was far from done listening to at the time. Not knowing what Bill Nelson had in store for us a few years later! So like the album above, this too was earmarked for a REVO edition that now, I’ll not have to bother making.
Notably, the “League Of Gentlemen” album seems to be the one release that is not getting reissued in any form; even in the megabox. Making my decision to make my own disc of it in 2017 a wise decision. The discs are out on July 1st and are available in the following formats:
- God Save The Queen/Under Heavy Manners CD – £10.50/$15.00
- God Save The Queen/Under Heavy Manners LP – £23.99
- Let The Power Fall CD – £10.50/$15.00
- Let The Power Fall LP – £23.99
Notably, the LP option is missing from the US Inner Knot DGM store, leaving [apparently] the UK Burning Shed store as one’s only recourse to buying the titles on LP. But if you’re like me, you should already have the original pressings, yes? And if you’re reading this far, you are aware that we’re all about the silver disc her at PPM! Street date for the releases is July 1st, 2022, so budget accordingly and hit that button.
