HASH(0x91b8f3b4) out of 5 stars Live in Italy (aka Official Bootleg Vol. 3) 24 Jun. 2007
By Grateful Jerry - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was first released in 2003 on the band's own label Schizoid with a different cover. In 2005, the band transferred both this and Volume two to Iceni when they released Pictures Of A City. This is a wonderful performance by a great band and features many classics like A Man, A City and Court Of The Crimson King mixed in with songs like Let There Be Light and Birdman. The only complaint I have is that they cut off Formentera Lady from Sailor's Tale. The studio version of Catley's Ashes is a great way to end this classic. If you like good music, grab this.

HASH(0x91bc04ec) out of 5 stars Give me more of early Kiing Crimson 15 April 2010
By Bobby Z - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
King Crimson was great from its inception and had a constant flow of new blood to keep them innovative and exciting. The 21st century band reunites four KC alumni in sax / flute / keyboard driven machine that plays with the vitality of their previous versions. I won't debate who adds more Mel Collins or Ian Mcdonald as they contribute to the sum of the sonic attack. Yes the live in Japan CD is more complete especially the DVD, but I will buy any reasonably priced version to keep the memories alive. Jacko has a tough job playing the role of Fripp and Greg Lake or John Wetton, but It comes together very well. Too bad the live in NYC is proced out of control. Hey when Greg and Keith Emerson die I Talk to the wind at the Nokia in NYC last week I still always hear the whole KC band. But this disc you won't be disappointed
HASH(0x9232bc9c) out of 5 stars The Frippless Crim 29 Jun. 2013
By Peter Baklava - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Though the acoustics could be a little better in this live set, the musicianship more than makes up for it. All of these players (save Jakko Jaksyck--AKA Michael Curran, from Level 42) participated in various line-ups of the prog rock band, King Crimson. They include Peter Giles (bass guitar), Ian Wallace (drums), Ian McDonald (keyboards and sax), and Mel Collins (sax).

I bought this cd, licking my chops at the idea of hearing Collins and McDonald on stage together. Jaksyck has Robert Fripp's licks down cold, and adds a bit of slick guitar tapping of his own. The band enters to an ambient "walk-on" tape in emulation of the "other" Crimson, and it sounds as if they used the beginning of the "Moonchild" improv on the "Court of.." as a jumping off point for this intro. They then plunge into a version of "Pictures of a City" that is the original McDonald arrangement. The next few tunes feature McDonald, including "Let There Be Light" from his solo album "Driver's Eyes". After that, they segue into songs from the Ian Wallace "Islands" era band.

Appropriately, the bonus track "Catley's Ashes" (written by Jaksyck) is a great vehicle for Wallace to show off on drums. It sounds like something that might have resulted from a union of Robert Fripp and "Bill Bruford's Earthworks". It's a wonderfully arranged piece with several tricky turnarounds, and it will make you wish that the band had recorded a studio album. Wallace's contribution was made solo in his Nashville studio, and he does some very intricate double-bass drum work. As the instrumental ends, you hear the sound of Wallace divesting himself of his sticks. It's great to hear all these terrific players proving themselves once more, revisiting the Crim catalogue.

I was skeptical when I heard about this show. I was skeptical when I heard that there was going to be a live disc. However, I bought the disc because I' m a Crimson fanatic and my curiosity got the best of me. I do not regret my decision. All of the old songs sound great. I guess all of the ex Crimson people still have that K.C. feel of the music. I also like the song selection. Something for just about everybody. All Crimsos should have this in their collection.

I own all kinds of live Crim style music. Member of KCCC since day one.
This is the best Schizoid Man I've heard. The other music is great. This CD is a treat.
