Guildford Civic Hall
November 13, 1972

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)
    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, Muir)
 2    Book of Saturday (Daily Games)

    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford, Muir)

Disc 6 taken from a band cassette soundboard recording. Audio restored at
DGM by David Singleton and Alex R. Mundy.

Though incomplete as a show, this has much to recommend it – a lovely Book of Saturday (still called Daily Games at this point) & a shorter but no less powerful improv than previous, with Exiles incomplete & only a taster from the second improv to leave the listener all the more eager for the missing sections.
   
Previously available via mail order as part of KC Collectors’ Club series 24 (2003).

Oxford New Theatre
November 25, 1972

 1    Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (Part I)

 5    Exiles
    (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Palmer-James)

Disc 7 taken from cassette bootleg, audio restored June 2012 at DGM by David Singleton and Alex R. Mundy.
   
Also incomplete, but the material that would form the first side of the album is now solidifying, the playing has tightened as the tour has progressed and the improv’s a killer – another fan favourite download.

#KC2014 - NYC Reviewed
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Sep 20, 2014
The latest incarnation of King Crimson gets the thumbs up from the New York Times’ Jon Pareles, who observes "as cerebral as King Crimson’s music is, with its mandatory virtuosity and its mathematical systems within systems, what comes across first and last is fury." Read the whole review here.

Elsewhere, The Day thought  "The songs built and evoked a twirling, brooding, almost suffocating sense of anguish, dark power, seething energy and frenetic tension that, in a sum-is-greater-than-the-parts context, gradually produced a crescendo effect of wonder and awe." Read it all here.
