This album looks appealing because of the Robert Fripp name but let me assure you its not very good. A mammoth, fifty-person enterprise featuring the cream of the early-seventies jazz-rock brigade, Centipede's 1971 album 'Septober Energy' proved to be an exercise in both gargantuan excess and instrumental brilliance. Naturally, opinions on the release are divided.

There are vocal passages on this record, mostly built around Julie Tippett's gloomy, doom-laden Crimson-like words, and they're pretty but they're not a major part of "Septober Energy. Unfortunately, there is also more meandering, and just as it looks like the finale has pulled it together, with a very pretty and understated acoustic piano section featuring Keith Tippett solo, the piece loses it in an extended and very repetitive part for the full orchestra that goes nowhere and takes forever to fade.

Septober Energy is the only album of the jazz/progressive rock big band Centipede. Produced by Robert Fripp under the musical direction of Keith Tippett, it was originally released 1971 in the UK as a double LP, and 1974 in the USA with a different cover. The album was recorded at Wessex Studios, London during three days in June 1971. The album is a four-part suite consisting of four tracks of about 20 minutes each.

Septober Energy - Part 2 (23:34). 201. Septober Energy - Part 3 (21:21) 202. Septober Energy - Part 4 (18:45). Centipede is the concept created by Free Jazz pianist Keith Tippett who managed to assemble a 50 artist strong line up of the most creative musicians in Britain of the time, into a studio over 3 days to record an album. As if that wasn’t enough of a statement, recruiting Progressive Rock luminary Robert Fripp to produce the record was the icing on the cake. Septober Energy’ is a labelled as a ‘Progressive Jazz/Rock, Big Band’ experiment that explores Free Jazz, Ambient and snippets of all other styles of Jazz and Rock over four 20 min suites (2LPs’).

Bootleg rerelease from the early 1990ies. No label information on cover/booklet/disc but "Dandisc / Cent 1 / CDM01" on inner CD ring. 4-page booklet contains reproduction of the gatefold LP inner cover (miniaturized). Obviously mastered from LP, as there are slightly audible vinyl noises (pops).
