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!

I cannot believe the tenacity and veracity of this show. Adrian is a wildman itching to make more music. Robert seems in as good a form as anything. Elektrik, Dangerous Curves, Virtuous Circle and Level 5 are finding their way Read more

I had been one of those asking and hoping for more of a taste of the 2001 touring band. I agree with the other reviewer that the í01 shows had a certain "something" about them that even í03, in all Read more

After giving the new 2001 gig a ride, I have come to the conclusion that this download is one of DGMís most genuine. I mean, the 2003 performance is killer, but the 2001 performance has something that the 2003 version Read more

Ich bin mit dir einverstanden ziggyyoussef, in dem Trey Gunn und Pat Mastellato, im Vergleich zur Aufnahme Elektrik, ganz klar geworden sind.
I am also in agreement with you that the TPTB material really comes alive live and especially when played Read more

Iím not sure I could handle them when they are on. I guess things sound different depending on which side of the flac. you are on. In any case, the lads are incendiary throughout, and while, yes, there are Read more

Few days after that show, Trey Gunn quit KC. I understood why the music was so empty that night. As a matter of fact, I have no precise souvenirs, except I came back home terribly alone, without that Read more
