Much bootlegged, though never heard in even reasonable audio quality, this concert – one of a handful undertaken for Fripp & Eno in 1975 – is routinely described as “legendary”. Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it’s easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now & perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers & the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts & general confusion.
Thanks to the discovery & restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible – with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM – to isolate, de-noise & match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

Rather wonderful versions of material from No Pussyfooting and Evening Star rub shoulders with hints and snippets of King Crimson and Discreet Music to magical effect.
The restoration work is excellent, as the sound quality is very good.
The inclusion of the drone tapes is the icing and cherry on a very rich and tasty cake.
What are you waiting for? Have you not bought a copy yet?
The concert at last shows outside the studio the dynamic of the exciting creativity of this two individuals that together to fuse into very profound and very special
I am a painter and this music has never left my turntable since both albums came out. So a treat now to hear live this pieces and so much more from this particular period that did not make a possible third album
The third cd of loops is my big Thankyou and worth it just for this treat of wonderful new and old and fussed material.
Please do not hesitate to purchase a really wonderful purchase of a lot of beautiful thoughtful music
Thank you gentlemen
