King Crimson - The Road to Red

Well, here it is. The latest King Crimson mega disc box set, The Road to Ruin, I mean Red! After last years epic Larks' Tongues In Aspic box, I didn't think they could top it. But they have. 16 concerts, spread over 20 CD's, plus DVD and two blu-rays and a new stereo mix of the Red studio album, this is the ultimate presentation of the 1974 live band. It's like an expanded Great Deceiver, but with added meat.

Whereas the Larks' box, though great, the audio quality of a lot of the material was sub par, with this box, all the material will be of high quality. David Singleton has spent many hours restoring the audio and I know this set is going to be the perfect testament to my favourite period of King Crimson. Roll on 14th October.
