King Crimson: Previously unreleased live recording from 1972 available to download.


A previously unheard Jamie Muir-era King Crimson live show is available to download via the band's record label.

Recorded at Watford Town Hall on November 14, 1972, the nine-track set features two extended improvisations. It's available in MP3 and high-quality FLAC formats atDGM Live.

The label's notes on the release say: "Five gigs into a 28-date tour and Crimson are on fine form in Watford on this decent quality audience recording."

One fan who was at the gig, Ian Wildman, adds: "One thing I remember about the concert is the power of the band and how the audience reacted at the end – totally won over. I also recall Jamie taking most of the stage with his kit, thrashing his metal plates during Larks II. I also seem to remember he did most of the drumming duringSchizoid, Bill seemed to take a back seat."

The latest incarnation of Robert Fripp's King Crimson tour the UK later this year. And the band are also working on at least three new tracks.
