From a reviewer:

“In the Jan. of 1975 I came by this album on a TAKRL bootleg LP. With Exploding Head coversheet! and Brand New in a plastic wrap! It contains two pieces that even my boss would listen to at work: Suite No.1 and Erudite Eyes. In the seventies the record seemed dated and somewhat pretentious, because the seventies was so far away from the sixties, but it has become a period piece that demonstrates Mr Fripp’s musical dexterity and potential of direction. Late in the 90’s I saw Cheerful on CD for the first time (albeit secondhand), and realised that I think I do prefer KC on vynal, scratch and hiss and warts and all. It’s a friendlier sound, more personal. I recommend also two other bootlegs: HERETIC:Long Lost at last… and Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale.”
