Confidence or bravado? Whatever it is, you know Boz really means it when he scats,” my kind of boogie” during the encore improv, Earthbound. The contemplative guitar solo that follows, suggests Robert prefers a different kind of bag altogether. Of the singer and novice bassist, Mel Collins wrote “Boz, thrown in at the deep end and much maligned over the years, swings like mad on Schizoid Man…I can’t think of many musicians who could get that together in so short a space of time.” Given that the lively crowd responded so well to the one-chord workout, ending this gig with a ballad like Cadence might appear to be a risky choice. In the event it’s a sublime conclusion to a solid gig having regained some of the energy that had eluded them the previous evening in Jacksonville.
This concert is also currently available as a two disc set, originally released in 2003 as King Crimson Collectors Club 23. The track Earthbound first appeared on the 1972 album of the same name.
