Buenos Aires 9/29/94

Here's my review as posted on DGM Live:

This is the second concert performed by the then new Double Trio. It’s quite an exciting listen, particularly in regard to hearing embryonic versions of pieces that would eventually become highly developed. Also, we get to hear a surprisingly structured Funky Jam, which sadly, never got much past this stage. Discipline is also a treat to hear by the Double Trio.

There are some obvious mistakes by each of the performers throughout the show. Rough edges appear during various moments, but this adds to the enjoyment of hearing the band, and how it subsequently evolved. The sound quality is slightly superior to the official "B’Boom" release, and the whole show is well worth hearing. Having a cable modem, I was able to download the entire gig in less than 17 minutes! Thanks again DGM Live!!

I just downloaded this yesterday. Definitely an interesting show. It's very different than, say B'Boom or Live in Mexico or On Broadway. Some of the newer songs had yet to come into their own, and the older songs are played with energy like they are truly excited about playing them again. There certainly are several of mistakes though, even on older numbers like Larks II and Elephant Talk. However, these don't really detract from the enjoyment of the performance all that much. Overall, it just has a different "feel" to it than than the recordings of later shows. And yes, the sound quality is excellent.
Walking out's just another metaphor.

This is waht I posted yesterday on DGMLive:

Not really a review, just a note to everybody interested in this download that Funky Jam is in fact Fashionable from the VROOOM sessions. Very interesting as RF, AB and TG act as a real string trio during this rendition. It wasn’t developed further, but AB recycled one of the riffs for Writing On The Wall on Side One. And RF’s high notes are obviously lifted from SAOTW’s Storm Angel. The "spartan sound" of the new pieces noted by one of the reviewers is probably due to the very careful separation of instruments in the mix (the Broadway Theatre gig seven days later sounds the same, in total contrast to the highly compressed and turgid FOH mixes on B’Boom from the same concerts). And this has the interest of containing an impressive number of train wrecks from Mr. Fripp himself, most notably on the second VROOOM where something was clearly disturbing his focus!
