3 stars Witnessing their important "new" era, that's the reunion of King Crimson with some different great musicians such as Tony Levin (fantastic bass player as a session man) and Adrian Belew (this latter coming from his meaningful experience with the controversial band Talking Heads, the odd "creature" of David Byrne...) in the early eighties, this time FRIPP AND BRUFORD are able to demonstrate the power of their performance during a couple of Tours: the "Beat" Tour as well as the "Three of a Perfect Pair" Tour ...but unfortunately the editing - performed on this latter for the DVD format - partially ruined the output of the whole opera. Anyway Bruford had been with K.C. on stage off and on, as for some other collaborations in that period, and besides his use of electronic percussions seems to change the original mood of the band, even though in a few performances only, so there's no continuity in the development of their historical execution live of the early eighties, above all by regarding of the strange line- up invented by Fripp... therefore I missed so much the mini concert footage concerning the period of "Discipline", because this latter for me is their best album of the eighties, but it's a minor question, regarding of a great number of songs inside (right 23!!), anyway representing a good sample of that interesting period!!
