The dramatic opening of this song never fails to provoke a reaction amongst audiences and the Orpheum, the scene of so many historic KC performances, is no exception. Featuring a great vocal from Jakko, the foreboding mood underpinning this piece never fails to find a resonance in the news stories from around the world at the time of its performance, ensuring it sounds fresh and utterly relevant.

Incredible Evening
I have only attended 2 King Crimson shows, Both at the Orpheum in Boston, First, way back in 2001 and again here in 2017. The Band in 2001 was very cool and I was impressed but what I saw during this show blew me away. Simply Marvelous. If you ever had doubts about seeing this band put them to rest this band is on fire and well worth the ticket price. P.S. I cannot believe you only have one track from this show incredible show available!. Please release it in its entirety.

Worth the 3500 mile trip
Thank you for making a song from The Orpheum available to download. My mate Gus and I flew over from Wales for the gig. Having flown to NY in 2014 to see KC at the Best Buy Theatre in Times Square this was the second time I have seen the band in the states (I also saw them 3 times in the UK in between). The band have developed massively in the intervening years and the introduction of a dedicated keyboard player has enhanced tracks like Epitaph. Looking forward to Oct 31st in Cardiff now.

I hadn't been to a rock concert in more 25 years (I turned to jazz, especially avant garde jazz, in the late 70's). And I came to KC late in life, and bought up everything I could find. But seeing the "eight-headed beast" in person was beyond anything I could have imagined. I'd been listening to Radical Action (To Unseat The Hold of Monkey Mind) incessantly (as well as older recordings) b...

The group you always wanted to see playing the music you always wanted to hear part 1
Last time King Crimson was in Boston was three years ago. Hard to believe, but thankfully there have numerous downloads that have allowed us to follow this latest incarnation. Back in 2014, Mel and Jakko were working hard to get a feel for the band. At the time of the Boston shows in 2014, their integration was well on the way to where they are now. Jakko was in the process of making of making the songs his, while Mel was throwing out screaming, wailing saxophone riffs. Those shows were gre...
