      Originally begun in 2009 by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp for King Crimson’s 40th anniversary, a series of new mixes were prepared in both stereo & 5.1 formats & issued as CD/DVD-a sets. The CD/DVD-A series also provided the catalyst for the larger scale King Crimson boxed sets as issued from 2012 onwards. The impact of both the CD/DVD-A series & the boxed sets helped to kick start a wider interest in the mainstream market for surround sound & for all-encompassing artist boxed sets which had, previously, been limited mostly to ‘direct to fan’ and/or specialist online sales & retailers.

      Consumer demand for the remixes on vinyl led to two boxed sets being issued in late 2018 covering the periods from 1969 – 74 complete with an album of alt. mixes of “Larks’ Tongues in Aspic”, a 2LP set of rarities (using the sleeve of the original “Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson”) & an expanded, remixed 2LP set of USA.

      These titles are now being made available in limited editions & for a limited period as individual titles.

      This release set features the albums form the 1969 – 1972, the 1972 – 4 albums have already been released.
