King Crimson - Starless Box Set Just In

Well, here it is. This years King Crimson box set. This time based around the Starless and Bible Black album. This set completes the trilogy of boxes based around what I consider Crimson's most electrifying period from 1972 to 1974. Though we were all amazed at the previous boxes, I think this one ups the ante even more. The quality of restoration and sound reproduction has been taken to an even higher standard, thanks to David Singleton's endeavours. On the Blu-ray Discs you have stereo up to LPCM 24/192 and DTS-HD Master Audio. That is top of the range. The music I will need time to digest, but what I have heard so far is a band that is truly pushing the boundaries in terms of playing the album material and in improvisations. The latter is where the gold is! So, now to digest this lot. There will be more on all this.
