This is the final instalment of the classic albums from the 1970s? Unless there are more I don't know about. USA is a fantastic concert with all the band in fine form. The sound here is a bit more raw than the studio versions which I like a lot. Brufords drumming is more 'out there' as is Fripps guitar work, he seems to be on fire here with some exciting solos. John Wetton is in fine voice as well. The sound of this concert is also extraordinary, considering its from the mid 1970s this sounds very fresh and vivid. I am surprised this was not remixed into 5.1 as all the other re-issues were, however the 2.0 mix on the DVD is superb. This is a great example of prog rock at its peak in the 1970s.
