I wrote a detailed review in another thread, but to summarize:

Half of this duplicates material on Epitaph. It's incredible material, of course, but you should probably buy Epitaph first. The other half is similar (same songs, one night later), but just different enough to be worth picking up. These concerts are incredible, with the '69 lineup at the peak of their ability, and some of the best recordings of A Man, A City and Schizoid Man on record. Better sound quality than some of the other '69 releases, too.

Now that a previously unknown (to DGM) tape of the complete ItCotCK from this show has been found, will an expanded edition of this release be forthcoming once the KCCC titles hit the DGM Live download pages?

Just curious.

Cheers,

I dug out this release and gave it a listen tonight… I still wince at the thought of buying it. I already had the Epitaph box set aswell. I must be stoopid or somefink!! More money than sense at the time.

It was the beginning of the end for my wasting money on repeated collectors editions.

Fripp knows how to exploit this!!! This was the point when I decided enough was enough.

I really am cynical about the whole Fripp money making thing nowadays. Does anyone else feel the same way?

I dont blame him I suppose... DGM is a business and I would probably do the same in his position. It's just there is so much new unreleased stuff out there to be heard. Why doesnt he try and keep the band interesting whilst it is sleeping until 2010?

Yes, you're not alone. That and the Brighton set was an even worse release. I'm going to give in for Club 32, since last show of tour usually = killer gig from KC. I think even if there was no DGM live and all those shows were in the Club(would be up to 50 something?), I would have had to stop at some point. Just give me a few shows from each tour that are really outstanding and different from each other. I doubt I'll be in a hurry to buy a P2 show if that's next in line.

KCCC 32 will be the first club release I have purchased for a while, and I agree with you, it should be a killer set. As much as I like the Larks era, "Discipline" is still my favorite single album. It's the album that got me back into Crimson, and the quality and precision of that band still astounds me. To me, it's a revolutionary guitar release in every respect. And just getting another live performance of "The Sheltering Sky" is enough for me. I'm looking forward to it.
Everyone thinks I'm psychotic, except for my friends deep inside the earth.
