King Crimson-Civic Hall,Wolverhampton (September 10,1971)

King Crimson
Civic Hall-Wolverhampton.UK
September 10,1971

From a tape trade in the late seventies,a fantastic performance
and really great quality for a 1971 tape.
This show is one of the best 1971 shows in my opinion,I like
every version they played this night very much,specially the
guitar solo from Mr.Fripp at the end of Groon,fantastic !!! Mel Collins
is really on fire that night,some great sax.& flute playing.
Boz Burrell & Ian Wallace,what can I say more,the perfect rhythm group.

Robert Fripp: Guitar and Mellotron

Boz Burrell: Bass and Lead Vocals
Ian Wallace: Drums and Backing Voclas
Pete Sinfield: Illuminations

I love your blog and any KC is always very welcome ;-)

Despite the title, I always thought this was recorded at Preston Town Hall.

Maybe I'm mistaken!

Thanks for everything.

I saw KC sometime around this time at Sheffield City Hall. They were on a package tour with Lloyd Watson and Roxy Music.They almost "rocked out" on Ladies of The Road! Thanks very much for this.

Thank you now, but is mp3 version. Do you have it maybe in flac as well? Would be a bit nicer one. Great concert! (Which was not at the time?:-))) Thanks, cheerio, Gyula

For the previous: I didn't mean to convert the mp3 to flac, because there is no reason to do. I just have heard somewhere at somebody did it. (or intended...) thanks.
