5 stars Again, a masterful live concert from the prog group which managed to succeed during the hostile 80's with a style! Some influences of the current line-up's guitarists' recent collaboration works are quite obvious, but the overall result of the player's musical ideas is fresh and interesting.

This live covers material from all of their three fine studio LP's of the 80's, and brings forth their true sound of playing. I have not heard the other concert's from this period of KING CRIMSON released as collectors club CD's, so I can't compare this to them yet. My personal highlight here is the dynamic and weird opening with three first tracks. "Industry" and "Dig Me" are also great performances. The CD cover art is also fine, and there's an informative booklet included.

It's also a nice thing that Fripp gets his money from the hard part of working, touring that is, from the profits of producing these releases. Thanks for it!
