This is the most often released King Crimson tape. Recorded at the height of their most enduring line-up, this is an amazing sounding soundboard recording. Siréne have mastered it to give it the best possible sound available. The tape begins with a great version of “Doctor Diamond”. Wetton sounds real passionate in singing “I am a driver of an underground train.” The set is usual Crimson: long, adventurous improves hovering in between songs from the Lark’s Tongues LP. This is an excellent way to begin investigating this band, and Siréne has given this much-traveled tape a definitive release (unless the band release it themselves at some point).
