|Larks' Tongues In Aspic Boxset
|:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Aug 13, 2012
The long-awaited 40th anniversary edition of the legendary Larks’ Tongues In Aspic quintet will be released on October 15th.
One of the key recordings in the King Crimson canon, and the only formal studio recording by the LTIA quintet, the 40th Anniversary Edition will be released in three separate editions to satisfy the merely curious and the expectant collector.
1. CD/DVD-A: CD: New stereo mix + selected audio extras – all new content.
DVD-A featuring 5.1 new surround mix, original & new stereo mixes in hi-res stereo, a full album of alt mixes by Steven Wilson & more than 30 minutes of unseen footage of the band live in the studio.
2. Limited edition Boxed Set:13CDs, 1DVD-A, 1Blu-Ray in 12” box with booklet & memorabilia. DVD-A content as above, Blu-Ray content as per DVD-A with further hi-res stereo material – all presented in DTS Master audio, 4CDs of studio content including CD of session reels featuring the first recorded takes of all pieces on the album, 1CD live in the studio, 8CDs of live audio restored bootlegs & soundboard recordings + 36 page booklet with an extensive new interview with Robert Fripp, notes by King Crimson biographer Sid Smith, album sleeve print, concert ticket replica (with code for further concert download) & band photo postcards – limited to initial orders, one pressing only to a worldwide maximum limit of 7,000 units.
3. 2CD: Complete original & new mixes with selected audio extras.
Whilst the clip of the quintet performing LTIA pt1 during the Bremen Beat Club recording has been available on the internet for several years in varying degrees of quality, there has been some fevered speculation as to whether the full concert would ever see the light of day.
Though it's been a long time coming, the full video of David Cross, Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Bill Bruford and Jamie Muir will now be seen in full. We hope all Crimheads agree that the waiting to get this in the best possible quality will have been worth while.
Pre-ordering details will appear soon.

Travis & Tippett
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Sep 9, 2013
Theo Travis will also be playing with Soft Machine Legacy in London later this week. Alongside Theo and fellow SML band members John Etheridge guitar, Roy Babbington bass, John Marshall drums, will be one-time Crimson collaborator, pianist Keith Tippett.
Thurs 12 Sept and Fri 13 Sept. (8.30 pm)
Pizza Express, 10 Dean St, Soho, London W1
Soft Machine Legacy is a reunion of 3 members of 70's pioneer band Soft Machine (John Etheridge, Roy Babbington, John Marshall) + reedsman Theo Travis. They have been together for 9 years (originally with Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean) and have produced 5 albums…the latest "Burden of Proof" is premiered tonight and has received glowing reviews.
"Burden of Proof is to put it mildly absolutely exquisite. These are four musicians at the top of their game, not only as soloists, but as contributors to an actual band” – Peter Pardoe, Sea of Tranquility.org.
Pianist Keith Tippett has been a national treasure and cornerstone of the improvising scene for 5 decades with an astonishing history of creativity. At last year's Frankfurt Jazz Festival, Keith joined Soft Machine for a triumphant concert.
"Tippet's playing was dizzyingly virtuosic" (Decode Magazine).
"Power, Beauty and musicianship" (Chris Searle).
Theo Travis can also be heard discussing his work with Steven Wilson, Soft Machine Legacy and Robert Fripp in the latest edition of Podcasts From The Yellow Room.

Como & Crimson!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Sep 1, 2013
My thanks to throbber and several others who got in touch to tell us that King Crimson was heard on BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live. Chef Simon Hopkinson chooses tracks that mean something special to him. His first choice is Catch A Falling Star by Perry Como but then he chooses 21st Century Schizoid Man and talks about how he first heard it and the impact it had upon him. You can hear the section near the end of the show at around 1hr and 15 minutes.
