1971-05-11 Live at Plymouth, Guildhall (KCCC14) Sounboard! - Animation, HQ.
Live at Plymouth Guildhall is a double live album, recorded at the Guildhall in Plymouth, UK on May 11, 1971. This concert was the fifth ever live performance by the Islands version of King Crimson. The CD release was adapted from the original soundboard tape, mixed by Peter Sinfield. An audience bootleg was added to repair the missing introduction to “Get Thy Bearings”.

“21st Century Schizoid Man” is sung by Boz with this line-up and his distorted voice sounds really demonic. It is surprising that a song like “Cirkus” (from Lizard) is performed on stage — it’s really tremendous that they would manage to re-create it on-stage, not losing it’s power, mystery and all the rest… Biggest surprise here is an early (pre-”Islands”) 15-minutes long version of “Sailor’s tale”, very different from the later one. We also have “Lady of the dancing water” and “Get thy bearings” (which is in fact rather an improvisation, with a slight hint to “get thy bearings”). Later on they delated “Get Thy Bearings” and played “Groon” instead. But in fact both are very free-form improves. (Review from wikipedia)
