Listening to this concert reminds me of why I persist in my view that all early 73 Crim should be sought and coveted. To me this sparse ground is the sweet spot between the flailing chains of Jamie’s anarchy and the growing power of the mighty John and Bill powerhouse, during which period, to quote RF, there was still “delicacy and wood “. Sure the recording is well murky and may not be pleasant to a non-bootleg-sensitive pair of ears, but there are points of interest here. Firstly an early and differently phrased Doctor D, and in the second improv and into Talking Drum an open landscape that welcomes David’s confident and beautiful playing. Thank you Alex once again.
