King Crimson Starless And Bible Black vinyl Panegyric
The albums from the 1972-74 box set - featuring the 40th anniversary Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp mixes -  now available in limited editions as separate titles on 200g vinyl.
 
An experimental hybrid of live material and studio recordings, the edgy and inventive Starless sits between the landmark releases, Larks' Tongues In Aspic and Red.
 
----------
 
Originally begun in 2009 by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp for King Crimson’s 40th anniversary, a series of new mixes were prepared in both stereo & 5.1 formats & issued as CD/DVD-a sets. 
 
Consumer demand for the remixes on vinyl led to two boxed sets being issued in late 2018 covering the periods from 1969 – 74 complete with an album of alt. mixes of Larks’ Tongues in Aspic, a 2LP set of rarities (using the sleeve of the original “Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson”) & an expanded, remixed 2LP set of USA.
 
Limited to 2000 copies per title. Cut by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering. (*Trio & The Mincer feature original mixes as multi-track tapes were lost)
