The improv soon develops into more aggressive territories with Bruford and Muir building up a volley of percussion over which Fripp’s guitar strafes and dives. The white-hot intensity of the piece is marred by the distorted audio quality but once your ears get used to the sonics it’s all rather exhilarating. It’s Crimson’s refusal to sound like any other UK rock band treading the boards at that time that make the band such a hot ticket.
As things subside we hear some growling mellotron and Muir’s percussion and all sorts are deployed followed by the emergence of a Mellotron-led theme that sounds like it’s been cut from the same cloth as Sailors’ Tale.
Coming out of Easy Money the surviving portion of the second improv contains shimmering guitar elements that Fripp would later revisit for his introduction to the Night Watch. It's interesting and not a little intriguing to hear Muir's solo spot featuring some of the madcap humour for which he will forever be associated with going down so well with the equally boisterous Glasgow crowd. Sadly the incomplete source tape cuts out just before Bruford enters the fray.
