killin' it... May 7, 2009
Written by twatts
Oh, Mr. Fripp! You are killiní it during this set! Boy At Piano and Mr. Minor are superb. "Commentary" from surrounding audience members is very funny, but minimal - does not take away from the music, rather it makes for a better tape - its not a sterile soundboard, but sounds like it would if you were standing there at the show. Fantastic stuff... Thank you!!!

Enjoyable, to be sure. But the prominence of the paint-by-numbers bass in the recording is regrettable. I still think what I thought in 1980--no man could ever be in a band with Robert Fripp if he had no more proficiency on his instrument than Sara Lee has on bass.
LoG at Bijou Philly 1980 August 12, 2008

I am downloading this as we speak - the night that I saw was one of the most enthralling musical experiences of my life. And I should mention that last nightís King Crimson show at the Keswick also rates that designation, along w/ the Frippertronics show at the University of Pennsylvania around 1979(?). Anyway, after this show, the next day I described it to a friend as "they started out as a pleasant and interesting enough Barry Andrews dominated new wavy dance band, and of course its always a a treat to see Sarah Lee in action, but then as they kicked off Boy at Piano, this fierce look came across Frippís face, like he had just thought to himself íenough of thisí, and from that point onward I felt like Iíd been strapped on top of a a rocket, already heading into interstellar space, and maybe we werenít coming back." And I still describe the show that way today.
Dynamite on a cassette July 8, 2008

Iíve had this recording on an old worn out bootleg cassette for years, since 1981 to be exact and finally I have it in pristine (well... um) digital condition.The live LOG cd Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx which is outstanding in its own right came from the same gritty cassette recordings as this download. But I love this download more, complete with loud talking audience members, because it contains what I consider the most shredding Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx and definitive versions of Eye Needle, and Farewell Johnny Brill. I donít believe pretty and somewhat solemn Untitled can be found elsewhere either. Its also a complete show from beginning to end, the band repeats songs at the end for the encore having no more other ones to play. But its ok as they play around with the structure a bit. As far as the sound goes I actually love the gritty bootleg sound as it somehow adds to the vibe and is more visceral and immediate than its tame studio counterpart.

This is undescribably fantastic. Such wonderfully simply, complex, monsterously enveloping, challenging, beautiful and frightenly powerful music!

I attended both LOG shows at the Bijou with my friend The Bijou is not a large place and it was great to see Robert in such close quarters. Having never seen King Crimson (and repeatedly kicking myself), I was pysched for these shows and the LOG did not disappoint. In between the shows Robert chaperoned the other band members to make such they did not partake of any ípoisoní offered by the fans.
Well now! February 5, 2008

This one is just plain FUN! Everyone sounds great. I missed my only LoG show with the flu, so this partially makes up. Definitely UNDERrated for audio.
Must go dance now.

If I remember correctly didnít RF describe The League of Gentlemen as "music for people with intellegent feet", he certainly wasnít wrong. The set moves along at a frenetic pace from start to finish, although the untitled track is a bit less pacy. Always have loved Heptaparaparshinokh (donít know how to pronounce it) and itís on here twice. Probably my favourite of the three LoG downloads.
