The First Day (David Sylvian and Robert Fripp album). The First Day is the first of three collaborations between David Sylvian and Robert Fripp. It was released in July 1993 and was something of a departure from David Sylvian’s usual work.

The First Day" is the debut collaborative full-length studio album by UK experimental pop/rock artists David Sylvian (Japan and solo) and Robert Fripp (King Crimson). The album was released through Virgin Records in July 1993. The music on the album mix David Sylvianīs experimental, atmosperic and ambient pop/rock with Robert Frippīs experimental guitar playing and on paper that sounds pretty intriguing. Some parts of the album fully meet my expectations while other parts of the album donīt impress me much

Manufactured as a standard Jewel case with twelve-page booklet.

Robert Fripp and David Sylvian's first official release together, The First Day, is a much funkier and more percussive affair than its bootleg predecessor, The Day Before (which contained radically different versions of these songs). An obvious reason for its higher quality is that it was recorded in a studio, while the bootleg consisted of in-concert demos, and the songs here have been worked to completion. Fripp has found an extremely talented singer/partner in Sylvian, who adds a lot to his quirky compositions

Darshan (The Road to Graceland) is the second of three collaborative productions of David Sylvian and Robert Fripp. It is a remix album; the first two tracks are remixes of the original song "Darshan" from their first album The First Day. The original version, written by David Sylvian, Robert Fripp, Trey Gunn and David Bottrill, is reissued here as final track. The first track is a remix by the Grid, and the second track-called "Darshana"-is a reconstruction by The Future Sound of London

David and Robert Fripp came together in 1992 to further explore the collaboration started on the Gone to Earth sessions. Recorded in New York and New Orleans, produced by David with engineer David Bottrill, the album features a core group of musicians with Trey Gunn on Chapman Stick, Jerry Marotta on drums, and Marc Anderson on percussion. The First Day was released in July 1993.

The limited edition postcard, slipcased set, often has darker paint spots on the CD label side that show through to the playing surface when held up to the light. All copies play perfectly.
