Limited live release from the art/prog rock icons' Collectors Club series.
This set was recorded November 21 and 22, 1969 at the Fillmore East. "The Fillmore East concerts in New York 1969 were an important landmark for King Crimson. The band had, in the space of only nine months, risen from obscurity to international recognition, and the American tour was a crucial part of this process.
The two nights are enjoyably different, including the recovery from "dropped stitches".
The band is in consistently good form, especially on 'A Man A City' and 'Schizoid Man', which are taken at blistering speed, and in my opinion, the best way, because if the fast sections are too comfortable the half speed sections become relatively ponderous. So I'm pleased to have found this Fillmore East tape, and hope that it is as valuable to the collector as it is to me." - Michael Giles.
