“Welcome to the start of the King Crimson 1984 tour of America I hope you know some of these songs and note the discrepancies and applaud our bravery afterwards” says Belew. The band take a little bit of time to bed down on this opening gig, ironing out a few wrinkles on the fly as is customary on these opening shows.

A storming version of industry with Belew at his pointillistic, abstract best, coaxing all manner of elliptical sounds which are probably not recommended by the makers of the guitar or his pedalboard set-up. The track creates its own space and time in which Crimson glowers and scowls. Belew’s distorted voice in the verse sections of Dig Me continues the brooding intense atmosphere. There’s a sprightly yet thunderous rendition of Sleepless to savour although Man With An Open Heart has a heart-stopping moment as Belew realises he’s using the wrong guitar and the song has to be restarted. Also of interest is a wild Sartori and a rumbling version of Discipline.

The quality of this audience recording isn’t too shabby though close listening reveals there’s something of an ongoing albeit enthusiastic commentary in the quieter sections.

For an audience tape, the quality is pretty good with a bit of echo and a couple of pranksters nearby but it isn’t too bad. The band is on as well and I’m a big fan of the Three of a Perfect Pair material so this show is right up my alley. It isn’t the among the very best of the tour but it’s close, performance wise.
