Despite being a somewhat murky audience recording in places there’s a interesting variation in Fripp’s picking between verses on Neil And Jack And Me that didn’t make it to the finished studio version, and Manhattan is especially busy and bustling on this occasion.

Eyewitness Robert Cervero shared with ET readers downs and upsides of attending a gig where ordering food was a non-negotiable part of the entrance fee. “ We all set around big oval tables, and were treated to hefty helpings of spaghetti, salad, and slightly stale bread. It had a distinctive dormitory quality. I remember my ex- and myself were(I believe) the only ones staying between shows, and Bruford hung around to "retune" his bright-yellow, new, Simmons electronic kit. And we got to hang around and pester the stage folks. We talked to Bill for a few minutes; he was incredibly friendly, and seemed somewhat bewildered though appreciative that there were actually folks who would endure two marginal meals to catch two Discipline shows in one night.”
