There's a couple G#2's in Still You Turn Me On. He sounds awesome in that song. I'm gonna listen through to more of his stuff and see if I find anything interesting.

Cheers. I'm interested in listening to his King Crimson discography, it's fairly short and his voice is brilliant on many tracks, like "Epitaph". A lot of great G4s and F4s on "21st Century Schizoid Man" too.

Yeah, the title track of In the Wake of Poseidon is one of my favorite vocal performances of his. Always had great phrasing.

Also he has some very weird sounding A4's in Benny the Bouncer. It's weird hearing him sing in that drunk impersonation rasp or whatever you would call it. Bunch of F#4's too, should we expand the range of the significant notes?

Yes, C5 to A4 isn't much range for notes. I think F4 should be his lowest for his high notes.

Is that an E2 at 0:24 in Knife Edge? Definitely a few G2's in there at least but I hear a brief slide to E2.

Here's some more findings of mine, posted in normal link format to save space.

Closer to Believing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWzC1dnJsuw
C#2 at 0:58 and 5:14, as well as numerous G#2's throughout. F4's at 4:50

Bitches Crystal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Huv0QRpslyA
A number of Bb4's in this song for instance at 0:36.

Pictures of a City: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7OaHnj0wPc
Bunch of G4's like at 1:19.

Cat Food: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxnsPeGcdEg&feature=relmfu
E6(!) at 0:54, and more G4's.

Pirates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSLDz8PSSkc
A number of F#4's and a B4 at 11:08

Lend your Love to Me tonight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBfg8qtpptE
A2's around 0:09 and throughout the verses, and a harmony B4 at 2:10.

Man in the Long Black Coat:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sFV8fuOOlk&feature=related
How low does he get at 1:20? That sounds really low for him, there are at least some Eb2's in it during the verses. Maybe like G#1?

Really good sounding notes here too, wish I would've gotten around to listening to this man's discography more earlier. Oh, and sorry for the loaded post Sad .

Totally agree. Also I think Living Sin bottoms at C2 on "that savage woman make you please."

Correct. I have no idea about the "Man In The Long Black Coat" note, though...pitch-wise or register-wise.

Alright, updated the thread, here are the changes:
Oranged the "Man in a Black Coat" G♯1
Added the "Living Sin" C2
Took off the random E6 from "Cat Food", as I don't really think it's too significant.
Btw, re-listened to "The Endless Enigma, Pt. 1" and I am not hearing B♭4s on the "Please, pleeease" parts. Neutral

Timestamp for the "Man in a Black Coat" note?
Off topic: I think the original "Pictures at an Exhibition" was featured in a Wizards Of Waverly Place episode Suspect

Here's a better quality version of the clip:

Sounds pretty close to fry to me.

My biggest skepticism is whether it actually gets down to G♯1. I feel like it actually bottoms somewhere around the upper first octave and is whisper/illusion down to G♯1. TMI

TBH I'm pretty sure it does get down to G♯1. I hear it as a G♯1 even out of context. without listening to the notes before it.

Hmm...honestly, I think growl would actually make the most sense. Kinda reminds me of that Knopfler G♯1, but not as obviously not-full.

Oh whoops, turns out the version I had been listening to was at the wrong tape speed, but...

B4 at 13:21.
