A companion album to Robert Fripp and the League of Crafty Guitarists: Live!, The Lady or the Tiger? features Fripp performing a musical accompaniment to Toyah's reading of the famous 19th-century short story by Frank R. Stockton, followed by a reading of the story's sequel, "The Discourager of Hesitancy," which is accompanied by Fripp and the League of Crafty Guitarists performing "The Encourager of Precipitation." Anyone who is familiar with Fripp's graceful guitar soundscapes will know what to expect from this atmospheric music, and Toyah reads the stories with an appropriate precision and detachment.
