Excellent concert, with Dr. Diamond too. It has my favorite performance of Starless, which makes this one very special to me. Great performances of Exiles, Lament, and Easy Money. John Wetton is especially in excellent voice and Fripp rips up the stage. Also, the audio quality is excellent. One of the better club releases of the Larks era.

What Indyrod said. The furious climax of Starless is different from any other on record, another "Doctor Diamond" can't be bad, and there are some cool improvs too. They can just keep putting out released from 73-74 indefinitely, in my book, because so far nothing has seemed redundant.

Just listened to King Crimson – Live in Mainz on headphones and have to say it’s one of my favourite collectors’ club releases.

It has to be one of the most interesting ones aswell. Lots of improvisational material (4 tracks in total). A great version of Dr. Diamond. Why wasn’t this track every recorded for an album? Anybody know?

Who gives the titles the improvisations? My favourite ever has to be… All that glitters is not nail polish!!!

What is your favourite?

I'd love this even more if it was available as a collectors' edition with an addition release... FRIPP can you hear me?: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
