'Lizard' certainly is a great album.

Every part of it is under my skin!

There are so many good bits!
In particular, I really like that long 'Bolero' track where it changes from the mellotron and oboe bit to a kind of swinging new orleans jazz band in the space of seconds.....phwoar!....pornographic prog mayhem!

Keith Tippett's piano playing is excellent throughout.
I think the production is really good too- especially when you consider that Fripp and Sinfield were only 24 years old at the time (1970).


A great sleeve as well.
