Best live renditions of Larks Tongue in Aspic material that Iíve heard, particularly Larks Tongue Part 1, Talking Drum and Larks Tongue Part 2. I do prefer, however, the guitar solo in the Jesery (Asbury Park) version of Easy Money. Nevertheless, I was actually excited listening to this material live, and I do believe that is a great accomplishment considering the details of the studio version.
This whole recording is exceptional, really. The only weak point for me, and it is still an acceptable performance, is of Fracture. I have not yet been more satisfied by any recording apart from the one of the Starless and Bible Black release.
The other versions Iíve heard have been interesting, but never gut renchingly brilliant as that performance with its over-dubs. Those over dubs colour aspects of the early sections in a way that make them more exciting, and the ending was and is always something that makes my mind feel like itís going explode in somatic orgasmic glory.
I like David Crossís playing on this recording a lot.
The jams are interesting.
I find the audiance applause at the end before the encore a bit tedious.
The small excerpt from Cadence and Cascade is lovely, and great indeed to hear Catfood.

This show is a wonderful addition to the Wetton-era catalogue. Iím glad that the conversations of Richardís patrons were interrupted! This is another amazing performance from an amazing band. Thanks! I love Read more

I was waiting for a long time to have spring 1973 shows : they are in my humble opinion very adventurous and powerful (the influence of Jamie Muir is still there) and the different exchanges between Cross and Fripp were Read more

I must confess to having two bootlegs of this show (in pieces!), and Iíve prayed for years that R Fripp would release a copy of Read more

Is there a bum show from this lineup? The consistency and intensity are amazing!

I have been hoping for a good representation of Diamond from this tour, as I was at the June 16 Berkeley show (unforgettable if only due to the fact the Boys opened, inexplicably, for The Eagles) and have never gotten Read more

The sound quality from the cassette, as youíll notice from the samples, is significantly better than the cassette that was the source of "Earthbound". Its still short of a high speed reel recording and youíll hear some hiss in the Read more

Ok. Here goes . . .
Buy the damn thing. It is a wonderful experience.
However . . . . I must agree with gnostic on one HUGE point.
And maybe Iím underhandedly commending Frippís genious at the board Read more

Not bad for a bootleg. Mr. Bruford comes through loud and clear throughout. Even the ítrons sound good on Easy Money and Exiles. Messrs. Fripp & Wetton still sound a bit muddled at times, though, but the points they make Read more
