It was the first Asia album.

I did see them in 1983 at the Worcester (MA) Centrum.

It wasn't until last year when I bought Quadra and read, "Discs two & three were recorded live at The Centrum, Worcester, MA, August 22, 1983."

The whole concert....

I believe one of the 4 CDs in the Quadra boxset was recorded in Germany.
'Quadra' that means 4, right?

I 1st heard Johns music listening to King Crimson .. Luckily at a young age I was exposed to some great Classic rock on 105.9 WCKG .. used to be this show called "Sanctuary" with Alan Stagg .. he was an amazing Radio Dj .. From there I heard AsiA and started to listen to bands and projects John worked on such as UK, Family, Roxy Music, Uriah Heep... !   What I can say about d00d is he is Epic and the way he sings and plays bass is just amazing!!

Disc four was recorded at The Frankfurt Music Hall, Frankfurt Germany, December 13th, 1990.

I bought Quadra. The live recordings from Worcester were far superior to the Frankfurt CD. The German crowd was really loud or the mix was off.
At one point,you can clearly hear a fan yelling,"Karl Heinz,pass the Bratwurst."

Only Time Will Tell.... it rocks me every single time I hear it to this day.  And, so after that I picked up ASIA then ALPHA. I recall getting a poor taped radio broadcast that might have been from Germany as my first Astra exposure to "Go."

Well regarding my first true approach and appreciation as well for the music composed by John, it was in late seventies and-in particular- I like to tell you about my first listening to "Danger Money": John was absolutely great in the title track and unforgettable the impact of "Carrying no Cross", such a fantastic mini-suite divided into two wonderful parts (the instrumental part is one of the best examples concerning the complex prog music!!)...before that approach, I liked listening to "Larks's Tongue in Aspic" by King Crimson (from the "improvisational" aspect of music, even though a little bit harsh actually) and above all "RED" by King Crimson...I had already listened to Family "Bandstand" (my brother's album in 1976, when I was a child) and then also to Roxy Music and some other sessions by John...but "Danger Money" stands alone as his best progressive album!!
