No Pussyfooting) represents the duo's initial experiments with this system, a side each. Heavenly Music Corporation" demonstrates the beauty of the setup, with several guitar and synth elements building on top of each other, the music slowly evolving, and Fripp ending the piece with low dive-bombing feedback that swoops over the soundscape, bringing the piece to its conclusion. Swastika Girls," on the other hand, shows how the system can be abused

Fripp & Eno No Pussyfooting DGM Live, Panegyric 1973; reissued 2008. Fripp's experimentation with primitive looping came to be called Frippertronics-a predecessor to the more broad-palette of his Soundscapes recordings including Love Cannot Bear (DGM Live, 2005) and At the End of Time (DGM Live, 2007), and a unique guitar-as-orchestra texture that would be used with future incarnations of King Crimson, as well as sessions with artists. Even at this early stage, Fripp understood how to layer brief melodic fragments to great effect, while Eno-whose sonic manipulations put him at odds with Roxy Music front man Brian Ferry, ultimately leading to his departure following the release of For Your Pleasure (Warner Bros. 1973)-manipulated Fripp's playing to create big washes of sound, building great, dynamic peaks and valleys.

Both Fripp and Eno went on to do more work along these lines, but while I like both, I still think these two are better together than apart. 7 people found this helpful. After its initial release on CD in the early '90s, "No Pussyfooting" fell out-of-print and became a sought-after collectors item.
No Pussyfooting) is the first of three major collaborations between Fripp & Eno, and is widely considered their most revered. The sounds of the album were created by Fripp playing guitar, and Eno either recording or looping the various guitar sounds to his liking. Then finally Fripp would play some solo like lines over top of this to create the final product. One can almost hear the two figuring out how this collaboration would work between them on "The Heavenly Music Corporation". What starts of hushed and hesitant eventually becomes bombastic and fearsome. Fripp's guitar lines are loud, sustained and push themselves into your consciousness. This effect is only amplified by Eno's selective choosing of loops and effects to increase the cacophony present. Lyrics - 10 Fripp and Eno wisely chose this to be instrumental music. I cannot picture either musician trying to sing or yell over top of this music.
