A run of classic shows from the group continues with this first night at The Pier. Taken from an audience recording, the power of the group is impeccable even if the sonics from this open air show leave something to be desired.

Throughout this gig the band clearly own every inch of the stage and that towering sense of confidence informs each track.

Though they’d been flying the previous evening in New Jersey, NYC was treated to two nights of truly fiery performances where the group let go of any inhibitions.
Indiscipline captures this perfectly: Bruford swings a wrecking-ball of a solo, almost dislodging the pulse of the intro, whilst Fripp takes furious swipes that would knock a heavyweight sideways. Whilst their enthusiasm occasionally gets in the way, it’s hard not to smile as the audience join in with Ade’s monologue.

Discipline messes with the space/time continuum, whilst Neil And Jack And Me showcases the animation and effusiveness for which Belew is rightly praised – his work throughout this gig is pretty astonishing stuff.

Buyer beware: an otherwise superb version of The Sheltering Sky cuts out at about 8.50 foreshortening the dazzling climax. However, the presence and passion of the group redeem and transcend the bootleg origins of this show.

Please note that this concert has been pitch-corrected since the comments listed below.

Great performance from a band that sounds like Crim
.. not as bad a recording as the Jacksonville Collectors Club #2 (I think) release, but almost. I am certain that it really is Crim because the performance is absolutely incendiary and exhilarating. For all those lamenting the passing of vinyl and tape, here is the good riddance. More’s the pity that there isn’t a soundboard document of this remarkable performance. Until such a document arrives, this will have to do. Given the remarkable talents of the remastering team at DGM Live, I shudder to think what the original tape must have sounded like. However, if you listen closely enough, you can hear the girl two seats down from the taper giving him her phone number. Smooth, dude. And captured for posterity.

Pier `82 download
I concure that the pitch is off on this download although I think I know where the mistake was made. If you compare the pitch of the opening percusion of "Waiting Man" to other recordings of the same song the pitch matches up fine, but if you go further than this you will find that the pitch does not match up at all on the rest of the tunes,about a half step off as the previous poster noticed . Since I was at the show I was really looking foreward to purchasing this, is there a chance this can get "fixed" ?   Cheers, Bill Cormier

Good - but pitch correction needed?
This recording sounds like it’s nearly a full half-pitch lower than the Convention Hall gig from the night before (and seems so from my guitar as well) - which means that at correct pitch they must have really been charging along full tilt!
