Never better... February 7, 2009
Written by dwayne
Hey guys, donít focus so much on this never-released track. If it was so great, it would have made it to Beat, they had a problem filling up the album as it was... Iíve known it for 25 years (from Stoneybrook 28-2-82) and it is really not the main attraction here.
No, what really matters, is the extreme (and I mean EXTREME!!) intensity of the playing. I feel privileged having seen this band live in May and October 1981, but I really have to say this band was never better than late 1981 and early 1982.
As Robert Fripp said, the band died during the sessions for Beat. After that, it was never bad, donít get me wrong, but more clinical, less adventurous, somehow the spike was out of it.
I felt it at the time, I suppose, because I was pretty disappointed by the gig I saw in September, 1982. There was a perfection about it that perhaps kinda bored me, in a sense.
Not to mention the recordings from 1984, thereís very little there that still exites me. I mean, Discipline from Montreal flows like water. Itís just perfect. But that is also the problem.
To me, this release and the LA Roxy (November 23rd, 1981) are really the strongest live recordings by this band available to this day. Six stars out of five. Sheer passion.
