Fillmore East New York USA

"The Fillmore East concerts in New York 1969 were an important landmark for King Crimson. The band had, in the space of only nine months, risen from obscurity to international recognition, and the American tour was a crucial part of this process. The two nights are enjoyably different, including the recovery from "dropped stitches". The band is in consistently good form, especially on A Man A City and Schizoid Man, which are taken at blistering speed, and in my opinion, the best way, because if the fast sections are too comfortable the half speed sections become relatively ponderous. So I'm pleased to have found this Fillmore East tape, and hope that it is as valuable to the collector as it is to me." - Michael Giles

The two shows from Fillmore East are also available as KCCC 25. The band played four shows at Fillmore East, two on the 21st and two on the 22nd. This show was originally credited as being played the night before on the 21st November. It is now believed that it is more likely to have been one of the two shows on the 22nd.
