King Crimson / 1969-72 vinyl box

6LP vinyl box • First four albums • 2LPs of rarities • 200g vinyl


King Crimson 1969-1972 is a limited edition box set that presents the band’s celebrated quartet of studio albums from that period – In The Court Of The Crimson King, In The Wake Of Poseidon, Lizard, and Islands – along with a 2LP set of rarities.

The vinyl albums in the box feature the 40th anniversary mixes as mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp in 2009 and 2010. These are presented in their original sleeves.



The 2LP set of rarities is called ‘The Alternative Guide to King Crimson’. Many of the tracks on this set are mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and all are new to vinyl, with the exception of the single, ‘Catfood’. This rarities set is presented in the gatefold artwork originally used for the 1975 compilation The Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson and includes a full-sized replica of the original King Crimson timeline booklet which accompanied that compilation.

It should be noted that all albums in this box are cut from Steven Wilson’s original mixes and do not feature the Simon Heyworth mastering that features on the original CD and DVD-A packages. These are pressed on 200g heavyweight vinyl.

King Crimson 1969-1972 is released on 7 December 2018.
