potential of this King Crimson was only demonstrated in a live setting. Sure, it might seem a bit fishy to give a top score to an archive release of a live album (the last show the band did before "breaking up"), but I can't help it if this is the album of theirs that amazes me the most from start to finish (and that's 100 minutes of music, mind you).

Live in Toronto is a live album by the band King Crimson, released by Discipline Global Mobile records in 2016. The album was recorded on 20 November at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, Canada during the band's The Elements of King Crimson tour of 2015. It is the second full-length release by the current seven-piece incarnation of the band and featured new compositions never before released by the band on record.

Listen free to King Crimson – Absent Lovers: Live in Montreal 1984 (Entry of the Crims, Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Part Three and more). Absent Lovers is taken from the 1980s incarnation of the band's final performance in Montreal. It is often regarded as one of the band's finest live recordings. The material performed is mostly taken from the band's 1980s material, although there are one improvisation and two instrumentals from the band's 1970s catalogue. Strangely, the song from which the album takes its name, "Neal and Jack and Me", isn't included in the set. Complete track listing: 1-01. Entry of the Crims - 6:27 1-02. Larks' Tongues in Aspic (Part III) - 5:05 1-03. Thela Hun Ginjeet - 7:07 1-04. Matte Kudasai - 3:46 1-06. Industry - 7:31 1-07.

Absent Lovers (1998) presents the July 11, 1984 parting performance at the Spectrum in Montreal, Quebec in its entirety. As the show was simulcast on FM radio, decent sounding copies have been traded amongst the faithful for years, although not in such stunning fidelity or completeness. While the contents draw primarily from the Discipline (1981), Beat (1982) and Three of a Perfect Pair (1984) long-players, the quartet likewise dip into the vintage Krim catalog. Nagrania te pochodzą z dość niezwykłego koncertu King Crimson. 10 i 11 lipca 1984 grupa dała ostatnie cztery koncerty zamykając tym samym kolejne północnoamerykańskie tournée i kolejny okres jej istnienia w latach 1981–1984. Na tych dyskach znalazły się nagrania z ostatniej nocy istnienia grupy, która zamilknie aż na całe 10 lat, reaktywując się dopiero 18 kwietnia 1994 r.
