3 stars What A guitar solo!!!.. Fripp is on top-notch form here...

While the rest of the players here are not particularly thunderstealers (apart from Mel Collins' flute intro in "Formentera Lady"), Fripp steals the show with the amazing solo on "Sailor's Tale"; by far one of his best solos of the 70's only surpassed by "The Night Watch" solo. When I listened to the original version of the song I felt sort of disappointed to hear a choppy chord progression instead in the solo spot; besides, the mellotron really helps a lot, despite the overall sound quality.

Apart from that, Boz gets utterly desperate in "Ladies Of The Road", while Mel's sax is average, Ian Wallace is not bad, but not particularly amazing, so to speak; and the electronic drum solo spot on "Sailor's Tale" is awful (What's with the electronic effects?).

Needless to talk about the sound quality, there's nothing more I can add to this review; only that it's the first time I listen to a live version of "Cirkus" (which is considerably slowed down a bit too much from the original). 3 stars.

3 stars This, being only the second of the King Crimson Collectors Club releases (live recordings of various quality, released by DGM), was the first of the Islands lineup. So in that, it was the album that provided the revelation that this group didn't completely suck, as Islands and Earthbound seemed to indicate.

The sound quality is fair. The performances are good, especially Robert Fripp and Mel Collins. Boz Burrell appears to be trying to sound like Paul McCartney wailing though the vocals on Ladies Of The Road. But again, it's Fripp & Collins who steal the show with their solos, especially on A Sailor's Tale.

While this is not the live performance of this lineup that I would recommend first (there are others with better sound, and better set lists), it's still an okay live album.

2 stars One of the questions that are to be answered when listening to a King Crimson Collectors Club cd is "how is the sound quality?". Well, on this one it is not perfect but OK. The most important question is of course how good was the performance. Again it is good, but nothing remarkable. On the f ... (read more)
