3 stars This, being only the second of the King Crimson Collectors Club releases (live recordings of various quality, released by DGM), was the first of the Islands lineup. So in that, it was the album that provided the revelation that this group didn't completely suck, as Islands and Earthbound seemed to indicate.

The sound quality is fair. The performances are good, especially Robert Fripp and Mel Collins. Boz Burrell appears to be trying to sound like Paul McCartney wailing though the vocals on Ladies Of The Road. But again, it's Fripp & Collins who steal the show with their solos, especially on A Sailor's Tale.

While this is not the live performance of this lineup that I would recommend first (there are others with better sound, and better set lists), it's still an okay live album.
