I only have The First Day, but it is something of a classic, certainly
better than recent KC stuff...  probably the best example, to me, of what
can be achieved with looping is the long (6 min!) play-out solo on
"Firepower"; if he'd wanted he could have looped the bassline too, so I
just look at it as a looper and a drummer.  A classic.  The playout
Frippertronics solo peice is neat, having the advantage of being relatively
short and retaining its novelty value.  A great album.

"Firepower" is also a great track for inducing a desire of Sustainer
