Some more Crimson Collectors Club

The record company Discipline Global Mobile (DGM) keeps releasing vintage live recordings with their main act King Crimson.
The most recent release is a live recording from Oxford, England, featuring the legendary 1972 line up.

This was the band that recorded one of Crimson's classics, Larks' Tongues In Aspic, and this audience recording captures the band just two months before the recording of the Larks' album.
There are 45 minutes of music but only five tracks:
1. Larks' Tongues In Aspic, part I
2. Robert Fripp announcement
3. Book of Saturday
4. Improv
5. Exiles
Judging from the preview snippets on the DGM site the sound quality isn't too good. The recording was made on a cassette by an audience member.
