Текст песни: He gambles on the saddle Hes pulling at the mane He thrashes at the horses back Ambition is a bloody First Day is the first of three collaborations between British musicians David Sylvian and Robert Fripp. It was released in August 1993, featuring a driving rock style with elements of funk. After scattered collaborations from the late 1980s, Fripp asked Sylvian to join a new version of his band King Crimson, but Sylvian proposed a collaborative album. They recorded in Woodstock and New Orleans. Chapman stick player Trey Gunn provided a foundation for Fripp to experiment on electric guitar.

Very Old Chap
I have this on CD. In fact, I bought it when it came out, lost the copy then bought it again a few years back for about £1.50 in a shop.
I'm always puzzled why it sells for lots of money. As far as I'm aware it wasn't a rare item....or maybe it was.
