The 7/4/84 New Haven concert was recently posted on dime. This is the day after
Indy day, a show I haven't seen among dime's very impressive Crimson collective.
Belew likes Boston alot. I will have more of that later with another group as
big as this is, but this is the Crim, the only time I ever made a recording and
didn't mess it up. part of it did have a bit of a problem, but only 3 tracks
had to be balanced more than the rest so it all sounds pretty fluent,
it's an up close recording never posted before that couldn't wait any more.
Now being posted on its 24th anniversary.

1984.. a good year for KC. Who could have predicted that they would disband for a ten year period?
