4 stars This is really an amazing couple pieces of concert footage. I remember seeing the Japan concert broadcast on MTV (if you can beleive that!) in the mid-eighties. No kidding, I searched for that concert footage for 20 years before finding and ordering it off of Bruford's web site.

Despite the poor 80's quality video production, the concert footage itself is excellent. I have yet to show this DvD to anyone who wasn't blown away by the musicianship exhibited by this KC lineup. Frankly, my biggest pet peeve was the addition of some cheesy video effects during the best portions of Bruford's drum solo at the beginning of Indiscipline. Luckily, the Frejus concert uses no such effects, and has an equally interesting opening solo. Belew is spot-on in renditions of Matte Kudasai, missing nary a note on the slide guitar. Another notable highlight is the performance of Lark's Tongues in Aspic Pt. 2 from the Japan concert.

This is a must-have for King Crimson fans in my opinion. Truly a pleasure to watch.
