King Crimson / The Elements of King Crimson – 2017 Tour Box

King Crimson continue their popular ‘Tour Boxes’ with the 2017 Elements Tour Box, a double-disc package which you could only get hold of (until now) if you’d attended any of their tour dates this year in Canada, Mexico or the USA.

This two-CD set contains all manner of curiosities, including new live cuts, rehearsal audio, alternative mixes, various extracts (from live and studio material) and finished recordings. This all spans from 1969 to 2o16, with many making a first appearance on CD.

The second CD includes a curious take on Larks’ Tongues in Aspic, which looks to be an aural patchwork quilt of studio and live material

This new package comes with a 24-page booklet with sleeve notes by Sid Smith. It is released on 16 June 2017.
