5 stars 4,5 stars. This is one more great concert from 1971-1972 crimson era, one of the last from this line-up. I don't think it's better than concerts from Plymouth or Detroit. But it has two serious virtues. One is that it was recorded in studio so the sound quality is very satisfying. The other one is that we have here two "new" tracks. Two improvisations in fact: 10 minutes long "Summit going on" (good), and 15 minutes long "The creator has a master plan" - a Pharao Sander's composition (with Bozz's singing) which is here a starting point for an improv (very good). Looing at the tracklist don't be mislead by "My hobby" - it is not a piece of music, but a joke by Ian Wallace. Spoken, not played on the drums... We can only wonder what was "Earthbound" for, if there was such an excellent live material?
