3 stars Did you know this one really existed?

When i saw it i couldn't believe it , fripp , wetton and collins?? how did that happen? all three members are in the top of their game that year , and what to come out of this session should be a monster jaming! but actually it isn't that amazing , and does not match the expectations i had . what you get here is an earlier version of 'disengage' out of the 'exposure' album by fripp , as you can see he had the idea for the song earlier and tried to jam with it. it's like a raw loose version , but actually i prefer the one on exposure with the vocals. you get 4 versions of the song , all are pretty much the same. as great as the playing goes after those 13 minutes of an EP are finished you feel like you swallowed enough of 'disengage'.

All members playing is great , i always liked wetton's bass with that slight distortion , collins is fantastic , and fripp is just carrying the line of the song without taking a lead too much. they really have that intricate rhythm under control , and collins is the only one really improvising on it . i wish they would jam some more , i'm sure they did but it was never released. i found a few more minutes on the internet that they are playing something else, also good.

This one should appeal to anyone who likes good jaming but for fans of KC mostly , more because of historic value than the material presented. KC fans don't miss it for the world even though wetton era material is superior to this.

I hate to give it 3 stars but that's what it is!
