5 stars Simply the best live recording I've ever heard. All the songs are perfectly arraged and some are performed in a diiferent manner than in studio, most notably "Larks' Tongues In Aspic III', which sounds so totally different (towards the better of course). Although the album misses out many earlier songs (with the exception of 'Red' And 'Larks'... II'), it gives an excellent cross-section of 1980-1984 KC. But the five stars are for how 'live' this album feels... and I just wish I had been there. Well, unfortunately, I was *born* in 1984, so all I've left is thsi recording; to my mind, the best testimony of how KC worked then.
Ampersand | 5/5 |
