Nearing the end of their run of gigs in the USA the band take some interesting liberties with the guitar solo in Easy Money which becomes a cooking pot into which all kinds of musical ingredients and ideas are thrown in before it comes to a rolling boil.
After a bulldozing version of Starless, the adrenalin must have been pumping hard through the veins of the band as Bruford hits the ground not so running as a sprinting with a 100-miles-an-hour Talking Drum. As good as the music might be, the excitement comes also from seeing if they can maintain the breakneck momentum. Arguably the fastest version of this song anywhere. Needless to say, punters go apeshit when LTIA2 delivers its double-punch to the collective kidneys! All this and a jaw-dropping Schizoid Man, means this is a scorcher of a gig.
DGMLive would like to thank Greg Segal for sending in his copy of this audience recording.
