The albums from the 1969-72 box set - featuring the 40th anniversary Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp mixes - now available in limited editions as separate titles on 200g vinyl.
Islands - King Crimson's fourth studio release - showcases the band's more intimate and chamber influences. Includes the haunting title track and ferocious A Sailor's Tale.
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.
