Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Robert Fripp (acoustic & electric guitars, keyboards, Frippertronics); Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall, Phil Collins (vocals); Tony Levin (electric bass, Chapman Stick); Narada Michael Walden, Jerry Marotta (drums); Barry Andrews, Sid McGinniss, Peter Hammill, Terre Roche, Brian Eno.
  • Engineers include: Steve Short, Jim Bonneford, Robert Fripp.
  • Principally recorded at The Hit Factory, New York between January 1978 and January 1979.
  • Digitally remastered by Robert Fripp and Brad Davies (1989, Marcus Studios).
  • Easily Robert Fripp's most pop-oriented solo album--not that that's saying much--1979's EXPOSURE is also probably the best non-King Crimson or League of Gentlemen album of his career. Using guest vocalists Daryl Hall, Terre Roche, and Peter Gabriel, all of whom Fripp had produced albums for in the preceding year, Fripp's usual tape loops and fiery guitar solos are placed in recognizably song-oriented contexts for the first time in his solo career, and some of these, notably Hall's "North Star" and "You Burn Me Up I'm A Cigarette" and a new version of Gabriel's "Here Comes the Flood," are remarkable.
  • Between the songs, Fripp alternates the sort of tape-delay guitar instrumentals he would later dub Frippertronics and oblique spoken-word found-tape passages not unlike those used by Brian Eno and David Byrne on MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF GHOSTS. EXPOSURE is a fascinating, endlessly remarkable album.
