King Crimson "Live in Philadelphia, PA , July 30, 1982" CLUB26 - Collectors' Club

King Crimson
Live in Philadelphia, PA
July 30, 1982
...to this pair of ears, of all the 80s, this performance from Philadelphia is the best yet. Why? Well, in a team-band like Crimson it might seem unfair to single out individuals but if pushed, I would have to say it was down to Adrian Belew. It's difficult to avoid his dazzling fiery presence on this outing.... Thela Hun Ginjeet packs a devastating punch; a knockout collision between on-the-fly improvisation and the canny judgement of what makes a good story great....Another highlight in this package is the inclusion of The Howler. This song didn't get too many public outings, so it's a pleasure to hear how blistering it is with Belew at his
rat-scratching best. It'll come as no surprise when I say this version knocks spots off its studio counterpart. Sid Smith
