On November the 9th 1971 King Crimson returned at the Marquee club for two shows with a new lineup formed by Robert Fripp (guitar, mellotron), ex-Circus Mel Collins (sax, flute, mellotron), Boz Burrell (bass, vocals), Ian Wallace (drums, vocals) and Pete Sinfield (words, light show, VCS3 synthesizer). During these shows King Crimson presented the new "Islands" album, which was released a month later. Robert Fripp wrote in his personal diary: "Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac) was in the bar and told me: 'It's good to see you making a comeback'. I replied: 'I've never been away'. 'That's what I like to hear', he said."
