Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, from 1973, is widely regarded as one of the truly great King Crimson albums.
With its raw tone, inspired improvisations and hard hitting odd-metered rhythms, the album marked a radical departure for this most forward thinking of groups and was the first to include Bill Bruford and John Wetton as band members.
This new 40th anniversary box set is the ultimate edition of the classic album.
* Mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original studio masters by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) & fully approved by Crimson founder Robert Fripp.
* CDs 1 – 9 feature 8 CDs of live material from audio restored bootlegs + a CD of live performance in a film studio.
* CDs 9 – 13 also feature 4 CDs of studio including a new stereo album mix, an album’s worth of alt takes/mixes, the original 30th anniversary master + audio extras & an audio documentary CD drawn from the original session multi-tracks featuring the first take of every piece on the album.
