Best ITCOTCK Ever
If you're considering buying one of these first four shows from 1971, go ahead and spring for the whole bundle. Get this show for ITCOTCK alone. The silky tones of Boz's voice, the contrast of Ian's drums in the verses versus the chorus, the dancing flute and eerie Melotron from Mel, and the foreboding fretwork from Fripp add up to what is my favorite all time recording of this song. Not even the bit of feedback in the middle can detract from the mood; it only enhances the sense of dread the song evokes. Yet there is an underlying joy to it, as of the group is simply enjoying the act of playing music together.
