King Crimson: Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017

Read "Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017" reviewed by John Kelman

As many King Crimson fans eagerly await the November release of its latest 40th Anniversary Series box set--this time spanning the years 1970 through 1972, when saxophonist/flautist Mel Collins was a constant alongside band co-founder/guitarist Robert Fripp for three studio albums (1970's In the Wake of Poseidon and Lizard, and 1971's Islands) and one live album ...

Robert Fripp: Across Four Decades with Brian Eno and Theo Travis

Read "Robert Fripp: Across Four Decades with Brian Eno and Theo Travis" reviewed by John Kelman

In a professional career now approaching 50 years, guitarist Robert Fripp may be at his most visible when he's finding that “way of doing things" that necessitates the return of his flagship King Crimson--its recently revived and revitalized seven-piece, three-drummer lineup completing its 20-date American debut tour in early October 2014, including two exhilarating nights at ...

King Crimson: The Road to Red

Read "King Crimson: The Road to Red" reviewed by John Kelman

Another massive King Crimson box, hot on the heels of the 15-disc, 40th Anniversary Series Larks' Tongues in Aspic: The Complete Recordings (DGM Live, 2012), which brought new meaning to the word heavy by collecting every known note--ranging from low to hi-fi--played by the then newly forged, five-piece edition of a group that, in addition to ...

King Crimson: Larks' Tongues in Aspic (40th Anniversary Series Box)

Read "King Crimson: Larks' Tongues in Aspic (40th Anniversary Series Box)" reviewed by John Kelman

The idea of a 15-disc box set to commemorate the release of what was, in 1973, a single vinyl LP clocking in at a mere 46 minutes might seem a tad excessive, but when you're talking King Crimson and the seminal Larks' Tongues in Aspic, it's a whole other story. Beyond being an important addition to ...

The Wine of Silence
DGM Live
2012
It's strange how things sometimes come around full circle...well, almost. After helping to define symphonic prog with King Crimson and the seminal In the Court of the Crimson King (DGM Live, 1969)--mellotrons screaming instead of a real ...

Discipline (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "Discipline (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

If King Crimson fans were shocked, stunned and grief-stricken when the seminal art-rock group was disbanded by its only original founding member, guitarist Robert Fripp, in September 1974--seemingly at the height of its power and prowess--then it's certain that many of them didn't exactly know what to make of Exposure (DGM Live) in 1979. After continuing ...

Starless and Bible Black (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "Starless and Bible Black (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

They may be rolling out slower than fans would like, but given the superlative work that Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson has been doing to bring the decades-old King Crimson catalog into the 21st century--creating vibrant new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes, with Crimson co-founder/guitarist Robert Fripp's direct involvement and/or approval--he can be forgiven for taking ...

King Crimson: In the Wake of Poseidon (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "In the Wake of Poseidon (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

Considered a poor cousin to In the Court of the Crimson King (DGM Live, 1969), 1970's In the Wake of Poseidon may possess superficial similarities to its groundbreaking predecessor, but as a 2005 All About Jazz review of an earlier edition suggested, ..."Poseidon also hints of changes in the wind." Part of the second round of ...

Lizard (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "Lizard (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

Often forgotten and sometimes maligned, Lizard is a King Crimson classic that's waited to be found for nearly 40 years. When it was first released in 1970, it was quickly overlooked as a transitional album between the group that recorded/released/toured its seminal debut, In the Court of the Crimson King (DGM Live, 1969) and the Crimson ...

King Crimson: Red (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "Red (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

With numerous “definitive" editions already out, what can one more kick at the can of progressive rock progenitor King Crimson's discography offer? Plenty. With the entire Crimson catalog being remixed, remastered, and offered as CD/DVD-A sets that include stereo and 5.1 surround remixes in MLP Lossless, PCM Stereo, and DTS 5.1 formats, based on the first ...
