I’m not sure if I was at this show, or if it was the next night, but the download certainly sounds better than I recall the show did in the Academy. The drum solo is fantastic, the best recorded of this version of Crimson, at least in my opinion. And the sax! I must admit to being ignorant of the varieties and qualities of horn players then. The band I worked for later had a four piece section, so my eyes were subsequently opened. I have been putting off getting downloads, Fripp & Eno 1975 being my only other excursion into that format. This download has changed my mind about doing it. (I also downloaded a 1995 show I was at). Yes, I have been living in the 20th century for too long! More on my original experience: Drove up from the Jersey shore w/ a friend, I was 18 yrs. old, my first NYC concert, after going to shows in Asbury Park since ’66. (Herman’s Hermits, if you must know)! We parked a couple blocks away. Sat thru The Flying Burrito Bros. and Redbone, waiting for the headliner, KING CRIMSON! Sat under the balcony, which may explain the sound. I remember the dim stage lighting, some of which seemed to be from floods on the stage floor. (Later, as a light man, the first thing I did was get rid of all floor based lighting, ’cept for one special effect). I highly recommend this recording!
