Want to hear the best rendition of Doctor Diamond? This is it. Elsewhere Lament comes close to being the monster Wetton always wanted it to be, whilst Easy Money addicts will need to add this one to their collection; it’s amongst the best “hard” versions pummeling doubters and flattening opposition. There’s a pensive element to the improvisations that pepper this incomplete show, seasoning the standard Crim repertoire with a tinge of exotic mystery. Best of these is the sultry Spanish-style phrasing of Atria. Here, David Cross provides great atmosphere and depth alongside Robert’s scorching notes. The mighty rhythm section slip the leash, running with a choppy, explosive groove that could well be the signature sound of this line-up.
