    For anyone liking spoilers: The setlists of the first two concerts are on Tony Levin's road diary.

    So, I was listening to a great performance of "Cirkus" from this current tour's free soundboard downloads on DGMLive, I think it was the third night from Krakow, Poland (also note the back-and-forth in the comments from a fan and the band's FOH engineer). Fabulous stuff, but just as it fades out with the applause dying away, you can faintly hear the keyboard intro to "Lizard" start up (the part they haven't played before this year, going into the 'Bolero' portion) and it's such a tease. I want another full live album!

    Wildwood NJ is a beach town at the bottom of NJ- excellent beach and awesome boardwalk. They have a stage with live music on the boardwalk, and I randomly came across this video of teens doing, of all things, 21st Century Schizoid Man. they nailed it!!

    I'm convinced King Crimson in 2018 is at the best that it's ever, ever been. The new 2018 Elements tour box is sheer glory: the first disc is like a précis of their whole 50-year career, told via the most transcendent versions of those songs I've ever heard. Then the second disc is like "oh, you like ballads, huh? Here are a dozen of the best we've got, all in a row, so you can weep all over yourself."

    And they just put out three new soundboard recordings from the tour on DGMlive.com, with a brilliant and soaring "Epitaph" from Essen, a BONKERS new arrangement of "Neurotica", with Bill R. throwing in some mad piano riffage for extra chaotic enjoyment, and the first-ever soundboard recording of "Moonchild" from the shows in Oslo (just too bad it ends before we get to hear Tony & Jeremy's improvised cadenzas).

    I really want Live in Mexico 2017 to come out, already! And the Re-ConstruKction box set, too... I just re-watched the Shepherd's Bush Empire show from Eyes Wide Open last night and hopefully that is remastered and included in some form. Bangers, ahoy!

    YAAAAAASSS

    Oh my God, look at the cover art! It's from Tony's backstage road photo diary. Not only THAT, but the tint has been made subtly more red and green (Viva Mexico!), and seems like other band members not in the original shot have been subtly added as well...


    Here is the original without alteration except for resizing:


    Also I'm excited to see that this new audio will be mixed from the multitrack (including in 5.1 surround!), all audio produced by Mr. Bill Rieflin himself. That should be a treat to hear!

    Okay, so someone in the audience rather naughtily recorded audio from their second show in Rome last month (it's on TPB right now), and they captured a full-length rendition of the Lizard suite, including the Bolero. Since the band haven't released any official live version of the Bolero portion yet, I decided it was worth taking a little time to clean up the audio a bit, and share my results here so we could all hear the whole thing uninterrupted. Take a listen!

    Excellent wide-ranging interview with KC's touch-guitar player emeritus Trey Gunn, covering his whole career. Excellent insight into his time improv'ing every night in the ProjeKcts and with Crimson:



    I'm going to take a deep dive into his catalogue now.

    Recently purchased the On (And Off) The Road box set, and really came away from it loving the surround mix for Discipline. Fripp and SW really brought out certain things which I didn't notice hearing it only in stereo previously. "Frame By Frame" particularly was a highlight for how great the backing vocals sounded on my system.

    The release of Meltdown has been delayed to October 19th by a Blu-ray authoring problem. Too bad. But the audio of "Indiscipline" is now available on streaming services as a teaser, and Apple Music is also listing the full three-and-a-half-hour audio version including running times. A couple of added bonuses: there apparently three different "Walk On" (ie. Fripp-generated Soundscapes) tracks at the top of each part, and it would appear that the last handful of tracks (after "Schizoid Man") are actually from the 2018 European tour rather than Mexico City -- including a brand new track entitled "Cool Jam".

    Not surprised those tracks are from this year's tour, they definitely didn't start playing "Moonchild" until then.

    Get out your damned wallets. It's finally happening.

    King Crimson 1969-1972 and King Crimson 1972-1974 are limited edition box sets presenting the band’s seven studio albums from 1969-1974 in their 40th anniversary edition mixes (by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp).
    1969-1972 also includes a double LP of rarities and a full-sized replica of the original King Crimson timeline booklet which accompanied The Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson.

    1972-1974 contains a fourth album featuring a complete alternate version of Larks’ Tongues in Aspic - mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and featuring the LP’s original US artwork - plus the expanded edition of USA (in its 2013 mix by Robert Fripp, David Singleton and Tony Arnold). The set also contains a full-sized 24 page photographic booklet of the band during the period plus a poster of the King Crimson album art as it originally featured in The Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson.

    All albums are cut from the same hi-res masters used for the 40th anniversary CD/DVD-A series, pressed on 200g super-heavyweight vinyl, and presented in their original sleeves.

    Pre-order CD 1969-1972 for 2nd November release and 1972-1974 for 23rd November release. A bundle of both boxes is available for 23rd November combined shipping.

    (It's slightly cheaper to Canada from Burning Shed if you get the bundle.)
