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.

A quite unbelievably good performance. Never mind the sound quality - the music quality will carry you through this without any problems at all. Wetton is on top form throughout. Iíve had this one on tape for years now, but Read more

While I appreciate and respect the comments and concerns of listeners who would prefer only produced soundboards of shows, I have found that there have personally been many wonderful musical experiences I have enjoyed throughout my life which I would have Read more

1973-74 Crimson recorded many (if not most) of its gigs via soundboard. Given the fact that there are dozens of unreleased gigs recorded in this manner---and that demand for product from this incarnation of the band is still high---why release a Read more

Hi I was wondering are all the 1973 live soundboard and multitrack live recordings all used up. Those should be released first ( if theres any left) than you can profit off these cheap cassette tape recorders with built in Read more

This is not a review of the whole concert per se, but I had to say this about the Hot Tickle: "Whiskey Wow Wow!" Just when cynical old Darren thinks heís heard it all, you go Read more

When asked about the drum machine on the improv, and possibly twitching at the memory of it all, Bill replied ďBloody hell--the drum machine. It never had a name--other than the drumbox--and no identifiable Read more
