I saw that a while back and was very gratified to head how abominable Fripp's original parts were (understandably as he'd just walked in the door). Kudos to Tony for his editing work. I say gratified because my guitar parts are also bad, and I must often Visconti my own Fripperies. It's good to see that even the classics were edited together from takes.

The most interesting / unexpected parts in there were the quality drone from Eno at 3:20 (Synthi AKS) which I thought was part of Fripp's layers and the Chamberlin "horn stabs" which I always thought were Carlos's guitar.
