3 stars Since the Epitaph collection has been released, there is actually very little here that has not been heard before in other performances, save for some short improvised bits. All of the songs have been released (from other performances). That does not matter a whole lot, given the rarity of live performance recordings from this lineup.

Really, the only revelation here is a very quick rendition of a famous ragtime tune (I recognized the melody, but don't know the name) at the end of Travel Weary Capricorn.

The sound quality is just fair. And I'm not one of those who thinks the best of this lineup are the live recordings. I prefer the control of the studio renditions. perhaps you had to be there.

The interview is amusing, but not necessary, as is the instrumental 21st Century Schizoid Man

4 stars On this disc we can hear the famous Hyde Park concert, where King Crimson played in front of some 500,000 people as opening act for the Rolling Stones. It all happened on July 5, 1969. They played very well. The concert opens with two tracks from their debut album, which at the time of this co ... (read more)
