MagiKc in New Haven September 30, 2006
Written by prozakcbluesman
I was a member of the audience at this mind bending gig in New Haven, one of the four that I witnessed on this leg of the Double Duo (the others were the Orpheum in Boston, Tower Thtr in Upper Darby PA and the Listener Aud in WDC - a rare disjointed and poor performance to my ears).
While the above mentioned gigs were very good, other than noted, this show in New Haven was MagiKc! The crowd in New Haven was fairly small relative to the other shows, but the powerful performance the band put on was remarkable, memorable, may I dare say devastating! Many of the faces surrounding me were literally stunned, unbelieving of what they were witness to this night. Especially outstanding in this performance is the powerfull version of "Red" and a frenetic version of "Thela Hun Ginjeet", and "LTIA4".
It is difficult to convey the magiKc and strength of this performance through the high quality sound of a board recording, being a memeber of the audience, it sounded quite different than this. There was a certain air or energy about the Palace Theatre that made KC sound other wordly, particularly their performance from several years ealier on Nov 18, 1995 - probably the greatest performance I had even seen by KC as the Double Trio or otherwise (please note that I too young to have seen them in the 70ís or 80ís).
This is also true of other bands I had seen at the Palace Theatre as well, including Pat Metheny Group, Laurie Anderson, Tangerine Dream, Todd Rundgren, Jethro Tull and countless others through the 80ís, 90ís and 00ís.
Sadly the Palace Theatre stands empty now, a testimony to how even Yale University can not sustain everything in its "safe harbor of light" that is surrounded by the deteriorating darkness of old New Haven.
Any chance we will get to see the Nov 18, 1995 show from the Palace offered as a DGM Live download, or throught the KC Collectorís Club? What about the fabulous John Paul Jones band who opened for KC on this evening in Dec 9, 2001? That would be a treat as well!
Thank you DGM, for understanding the wants and desires of your fan base. It is a pleasure to see and hear the results of your efforts to keep your fans happy and turning out quality products even when the band is in hibernation. This download is well worth it, and for fans who witnessed it, it is a treaured reminder of that event. Thank You!

The staff at the Schnitzer concert hall were really frightened. They were not used to Toolfan, who is a little too close to Insane Clown Posse Fan for comfort. There was a long backup at the metal detectors, Read more

I had lost track of Crimsonís albums since 1984 and was unfamiliar with the newer material. I was completely taken aback as I heard some of the best music this band has ever Read more

I would exchange all these songs to hear Red from this gig though :) Very unfortunate that it is not available.

Iím the Ryan who initially wrote that review. It doesnít seem so long ago! Listening back to this event, I realize how much Adrian steals the show throughout. His "Frying Pan" performance is superb from start to finish, and he Read more

There are 2 Crim shows Iíve attended that stood out as signal changers. Signalling what, not sure I can articulate, but even the long suffering wife dragged criminally against her will to decades of KC adventures observed after this one: Read more

The title was Adrianís salute to the venue, very a propos for the seated audience who were in fine fettle that evening. For me, fresh from a distressed period of my life, this was a very necessary Read more

My favorite show of that era. This show is funny, especially creative, and the sound quality is pleasant to listen to and not as digitally in your face as some of the later Crim Read more

Iím not ashamed to say that when Thrak hit the retailers in 1995 and I purchased my copy I didnít buy in to what I was hearing. Sometimes what we are seeking internally, perhaps even spiritually is not aligned Read more

Short but beautiful concert of this wonderful quartet that brings out all its sonic potential in this evening to be framed as one of the best performances of the tour. Songs are played masterfully with a focus on the rhythm Read more
