Though this particular line-up were edging closer to oblivion, listening to this full show 30 years after the event, the energy levels are astounding. In his journal from the time RF described the show as "Tired. Lifeless. Lacklustre” Maybe Fripp’s estimation of the gig was informed by his recovering from mild food poisoning, the cumulative effect of prunes and a boil in his ear! It seems nobody was happy this particular night. Sound engineer George Chkaintz had trouble with the sound in the recording truck, roadie Tex is frightened to turn down Wetton’s amp despite the discreet urgings of other members of the band and crew, Fripp is giving tour manager Dik Frasier grie, and the promoter isn’t best pleased because the band haven’t done an encore!

These show notes are written by long-standing Frippertronics expert and unofficial archivist, Allan Okada, whose help in the restoration of this concert has been invaluable. This historic recording documents an extremely rare and classic performance of a mysterious collaborative tour from two of the most creative and fascinating figures in rock. It is one of the most rewarding live recordings this writer has ever heard. For any fan of ‘No Pussyfooting’ or ‘Evening Star’, this live recording is of epic significance and thanks to the efforts of Alex Mundy, is now also comparable in audio quality, by synchronizing the most complete and best (by a mile) available live bootleg recording with Eno's stage tapes recently discovered.

With over a dozen dates under their belts Crimson were really hitting their stride, playing a high-energy show and unveiling new material such as The Night Watch, Lament and Fracture. In the latter’s case, it’s so new that the paint is still wet with a couple of sticky moments evident around the intro. However, the real surprise comes around the 6.30 mark in Fracture - with an unreleased section they later discarded, propelled by a mighty Wetton bass line that reappears on Red’s Starless. An improvised section prior to those familiar rasping chords adds a pinch of wonder to this tale of the unexpected, making it a glimpse of an alternative Fracture.
