Tight, complex, and startlingly ambitious, the gig represents the kind of thing Rolling Stone's Chip Stern had in mind when he declared "Crimson creates a new kind of electronic string music that achieves an orchestral density without resorting to ersatz art-rock bombast."
The gig was screened on German TV as part of a popular series that featuring the touring bands of the day, though quite how the wider TV audience responded to Crimson's brand of 80s gamelan-inspired direction isn't known.
The transmitted show contained around 40 minutes of edited highlights though the full set was presented in total for the first time on CD as KCCC32 in 2006 and in 2012 makes its debut as a download.
