Named for the tour from which the performances were taken, Music Is Our Friend is an official bootleg featuring King Crimson's final North American appearance in Washington, DC in September, 2021. This 2 CD set is completed with four pieces taken from the first concert of the tour's 2nd leg in Albany. The DC performance highlights a band in ferocious form, with a powerful, energetic set with some arrangements reworked and differing from previous tours. Featuring a restored middle section of Larks' Tongues In Aspic Part One that had not been played since 1973, substantial keyboard arrangements, Tony Levin on upright bass during Neurotica, giving the piece extra swing, there's an emotional set closer, Starless, and and immensely powerful 21st Century Schizoid Man as an encore.
