King Crimson 1972 - 1974 200g Import Vinyl 6LP Box Set

200g 6LP-Set Presenting First Time Vinyl Editions Of Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp's 40th Anniversary Mixes!

King Crimson's deluxe 6LP box set, 1972-1974 presents the band's celebrated trio of studio albums from that period including Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Starless, Bible Black and Red in their 40th anniversary edition mixes as mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp in 2009-2012. This is the first time that these mixes have appeared on vinyl. All albums are presented in their original sleeves.

Additionally, a fourth LP features an Alternate Larks' Tongues in Aspic mixed and produced by Wilson and presented in the album's original American sleeve art. The vinyl set is completed with the inclusion of the expanded version of the live USA album, presented in its 2013 mix with interior gatefold art based on the original imagery. A 24 page photographic booklet and album art poster are also included.

All albums are pressed using 200-gram super heavyweight vinyl for the best audio reproduction. The albums were cut at Loud Mastering by Jason Mitchell from original hi-res sources as prepared by Wilson and approved by Fripp except "Easy Money" (alt. mix), mixed and produced by David Singleton and Alex R Mundy and excluding "Trio" and "The Mincer," presented in original mixes as the multi-track tapes of these tracks remain lost.
