Wow - on the third night at the Savoy KC opens with rock-steady Discipline that emanates such power that even from this distance of time and space, you can’t help but get into the groove. If the previous evening’s second house had signs of the team wilting slightly, they sound as though they are back with a vengeance for this first house.

There’s an astonishing version of Neil and Jack and Me that is so savage that at times it feels as though it’s going to blow apart. The solo at the very end of the song combines Fripp’s love of a yearning melody with some out-of-this-world clinches. Astonishing stuff and arguably one of the very best pre-Beat performances. The cruel, but often accurate concert-going consensus is that when the drummer strikes up a solo spot, then it’s time to go the bar. That’s not a mistake any self-respecting Crimhead would make and Bruford is in playful form tonight. Indiscipline takes things up a notch, as the team revels in being let off the leash. Riotous fun ensues on each of those break-out sections. Listen out also for another tumultuous Sartori. Talk about raising the roof!

DGMLive would like to give a special thanks to John Bella for his assistance with the Savoy downloads.

Extraordinary gig
This has astonishingly good quality for a bootleg! The gig starts off nicely but gets better and better even during the first song. The band seem to be enjoying themselves. Sometimes to the point of coming close to losing it, as in "Thela" at around 6:40 and in "Neal ... " at around 4 minutes mark. It has a fun version of "Red", "The Sheltering Sky" features some magnificent soloing, there is a very good "Manhattan", a lovey "Frame by Frame". "Elephant Talk" is very energetic, with excited Belew solos and great interplay. "Indiscipline" again features ferocious guitar, followed by an outstanding "Sartori" (again with an improv intro). The set closes with a great "Larks' II" with some more wild soloing. Extraordinary.

Best So far
This is the best of the shows on this tour I've listened to so far. "Indiscipline", with the great drum solo, into "Sartori in Tangier" was my favorite part of the show. This will get much more listening.

All I can say is ..........WOW! The sheer power and joy of this performance is astonishing ! A surprisingly potent audience recording really brings this home. The version of "The Sheltering Sky" here is otherworldy, I have never heard a better version of this, EVER !
