Double 200gm vinyl LP pressing. Consists of the original 1979 release on LP1, while LP2 presents the 2006 third edition on vinyl for the first time. The 2006 'third edition' of the album will be available on vinyl for the first time. The album has been mastered by Jason Mitchell at LOUD mastering from masters approved by Robert Fripp. The term 'classic album' has been devalued somewhat through overuse, but if ever an album has proved worthy of the term it's Robert Fripp's 1979 solo debut Exposure. An invitation from David Bowie and Brian Eno in July 1977 resulted in his appearance as lead guitarist on Heroes, David Bowie's 2nd 1977 album from his own golden year and marked Fripp's return to full time musician. Recorded at the Record Plant in New York, Exposure was originally conceived as part of a trilogy alongside Daryl Hall's Sacred Songs and Peter Gabriel's 2nd solo album (both Fripp produced). Exposure was delayed from it's scheduled 1978 release date by RCA's postponement of the release of the Hall album (that remained unissued until 1980) and Hall's then manager's insistence that some of his vocals be removed from the album. When the album finally appeared in 1979, it's mixture of songs, singers, instrumentals, snatches of speech, audio-vérité sound collages - all linked by an autobiographical/diary approach - presented a very different musician from that of the initial King Crimson period 1969-74. Even in a period when the wheel - as represented by a vinyl album - seemed to be reinvented on a routine basis, a time when "expect the unexpected" was the best approach to any number of then new or current recordings, Exposure stood apart. It still does.
