4 stars I will admit it. I was one of those who wrote off this King Crimson lineup. Islands is still one of my least favorite Crimson releases. And Earthbound is very hard to listen to. But this recording shows that Fripp, Boz Burrell, Ian Wallace and Mel Collins actually did have something to offer.

Wallace was a very good drummer. And Burrell, despite being somewhat of a novice bass player, manages to play interesting bass lines while staying within his limitations. And Collins is the true star of this performance. His sax and flute lines make this something of a jazz fusion album. And it makes the majority of the album work quite well.

And they only play one song from Islands.

Evolver | 4/5 |
