Always something a special song for Jakko Jakszyk, when he first saw King Crimson play Watford Town Hall back in 1971, Pictures Of A City was one of the numbers in the set. It’s a fair bet the young Jakko never thought he’d be up on stage singing and playing the track as a member of King Crimson. But here he is, adding a great vocal and slicing guitar lines to the piece that often makes Schizoid Man look like a walk in the park. The opened out middle section features an especially scorching solo from Mel.

Riveting version of this song, of which I was starting to believe that it was specifically written for KC VII back in 1969 and only now can be performed in its full form. Besides ¨Pictures of a City¨, a few very strong memories spring to my mind from this very special show. I would mention witnessing the live performance of Fracture for the first time, with some lovely bits of Jakko-Fripp interplay, as well as Mel Collins having particularly great little interventions throughout the songs, not least of which in "Easy Money". One of the qualities of King Crimson is that it can make seemingly simple things into something extraordinary, and the small chord exchange between JJ, RF and MC before the chorus of "Easy Money" felt like pure happiness.

Interesting
This song is played blisteringly as always from this lineup. Its an odd one though because the vocals, horns and Fripp almost sound like a continuation from the early 70s overdubbed on a current modern rhythm section of the drummers and Levin’s distinctive bass grind. So in some ways it sounds like a hybrid recording.
