They really enjoyed this one![endtease]If you listen carefully at the end of a particularly convincing rendition of LTIA Pt.II you can hear the excitement (or perhaps relief?) of the band at the end of the gig as they congratulate each other and decide to do yet another encore! Thanks to the vagaries of this soundboard mix we get a close-up view of Fripp’s fingerwork on the ever-so-slightly incomplete opener, Discipline. It’s a claustrophobic mix that initially largely excludes the bass and drums (quite a feat when you think about it) but thankfully widens out as the set progresses.

Listen up for a beautifully athletic B’Boom where Pat and Bill are so tight you’d struggle to get a cigarette paper between the pair of them. It’s followed by Thrak, whose improvised section has a great swinging back beat running through most of it. Why, you could even dance to that ornery critter.
Though the pop-funk twitchiness of People is knife-sharp with Levin’s bubbling bass adding to the urgency, the track that’s really worth the price of admission is an especially frenetic Indiscipline in which Belew and Fripp slice and dice the air with some of that red hot twerning and squerning.In short a very Fripp-centric mix (including Robert’s radiophonic contribution to Prism) of a rock solid gig.

Wall of Sound
Just was one of the lucky guys who has been here. KC in perfect condition. The superb Double Trio. They were playing with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of energy. This soundboard recording is awful. I’m glad its available now. I wish u were there to see it...I DID !!!! Han

Whoa!
This is not your mother’s KC! A looser set that starts off a little wobbly on Discipline, but roars into action thereafter. Maybe it’s just the recording, but the team gooses any number of the tracks, improving as the spirit moves them, and to hear Levin’s harmonies more prominently in the mix is a nice dimension. It just brings home to me the title of that old Neil Young tune, "What Might Have Been." What a terrific kick off to the New Year! Many thanks.

Congresgebouw
Not a review, only a remark. The venue in The Hague/ Den Haag (not Den Hague) is called Congresgebouw. I was there in 1995 and enjoyed every minute of KC’s show.

Energizing
In the words of Homer Simpson, "Woo-hoo! IN YOUR FACE!"In the words of Adrian Belew, "I Like It!"One Time creates a beautiful bittersweet atmosphere, lulling you into a contemplative meditation. For me time stood still.  Vroom delivered the same invigorating gust I remember from the first time I heard it 12 years ago. The Frippcentricity of the mix is no problem-his playing on this justifies the exposure. In fact the band as a whole has developed an easy familiarity which allows for a lot of little experiments. Several versions here seem to me to be definitive readings-SSEDD for example.
