2 stars I have all of KCs official releases and wanted to experience more of the Boz lineup. I got Ladies of the road which wetted my appetite for more, so I purchesed this cd. Oh No! The short extracts on LOR were enough, to hear them crash their way through an abysmal blues Court of The Crimson King would test the patiience of a saint. It is loose, badly played and frankly awful. Some of the tracks are Ok, but even Mel Collins sax goes on and on, actually being cut on one track. Boz is a reasonable singer but when he tries to scream...stand back it is bad. To sum up, I hate this cd, the good parts are just obliterated by the bad and bot are they bad. If you really need this lineup of Crimson live, get Earthbound for an experience and ladies of the road for a better quality sound
