      Adrian Belew/ Robert Fripp / Tony Levin / Bill Bruford

      • 40th anniversary stereo mixes of King Crimson’s 1980s albums ‘Discipline’, ‘Beat’ and ‘Three Of A Perfect Pair’ by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp
      • All three albums available on 200-gram super-heavyweight vinyl for the first time
      • Mastered by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering from original studio masters

      Released on CD as part of King Crimson’s 40th anniversary series, the Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp remixes of the 1980s trilogy of albums ‘Discipline’, ‘Beat’ and ‘Three Of A Perfect Pair’ have long been over-due on vinyl.

      Seven years after King Crimson had ‘ceased to exist’, King Crimson’s reinvention as a new quartet consisting of Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew and Tony Levin brought about a surprising new era, which delighted fans old and new.

      Stylistically very different from the King Crimson of the 1970s, this new line-up incorporated rock with electronica, funk, pure pop, modern avant-garde, and a complex variety of musical textures and influences.

      ‘Three Of A Perfect Pair’ (1984) was the first of the 80s albums to reach Top 30 in the UK album charts, signalling the increasing popularity of the 80s line-up and helping to ensure the group’s status as one of the most interesting and innovative bands of the decade.

      King Crimson’s 1980s studio trilogy is now celebrated as a classic period, the intricacies of the playing and details in the compositional style became a key influence on sub-genres such as math rock.
