4.0 out of 5 stars Now superceded by the 40th Anniversary Version, 1 Feb. 2013
This review is from: USA (30th Anniversary Edition) (Audio CD)
The 1973/74 King Crimson with David Cross on violin were heavily influenced ( as were most serious rock musicians at the time) by the original Mahavishnu Orchestra, which also featured heavily amplified guitar & violin.

Wheres the MO incorporated high speed, dazzling jazz chops interplay, Crimson remained a rock riff orientated outfit with an added jazz style improvisational skill. And Crimson still retained a strong song orientated output alongside the instrumentals.

The USA live album was this line ups swansong and originally came out in 1975 on LP, the 28th June 1974 Asbury Park concert having been overdubbed and treated to studio trickery. The 30th anniversary CD issue added 2 further live tracks to this original album. The 30th issue was then superceded by the Collectable King Crimson Vol 1, which had the complete unedited Ashbury Park concert in remixed format.

Now the concert has been remixed again for the 40th Anniversary edition, plus you get all 3 earlier mixes for those who prefer the original edits & overdubs. This now becomes the definitive version of this legendary live album

Conpletely agree with you but that still makes this cd version a four star classic, surely?

My review updated in light of the 40th Anniversary Edition, and yes I agree, a bit too harsh on the original mix perhaps !
