King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King 3CD+blu-ray

50th anniversary reissue of the seminal debut • 2019 Steven Wilson mixes in 5.1 and stereo!

King Crimson‘s 1969 debut album In The Court of the Crimson King is to be reissued as a Blu-ray+3CD edition and a double vinyl set, for its 50th anniversary.

The blu-ray features an enormous amount of content, including all new 2019 stereo and 5.1 mixes by Steven Wilson (at 24/96 resolution), the original mix (the ‘master edition’) also at 24/96, a complete alternate version of the album comprising 2019 Steven Wilson mixes, 2019 instrumental mixes and more. This blu-ray is all-region and playable on all drives.

The three CDs in the box set feature the new 2019 Steven Wilson stereo mix, an exapanded edition of the alternate album in the blu-ray and the original master edition of the 1969 mix plus additional tracks. Full track listings and details below.

In terms of packaging the four discs are presented into two card gatefold sleeves which sit alongside a booklet within a rigid exterior slipcase. New sleeve-notes by King Crimson biographer Sid Smith feature in the booklet.

The 50th anniversary double vinyl edition of In The Court of the Crimson King features Steven Wilson’s new 2019 stereo mix on the first record with the alternate album with tracks mixed by Wilson and David Singleton. These are pressed on 200g vinyl and have been cut by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering from original 24/96 high-resolution source files.

Also, the artwork for both Bluray/CD and vinyl has been derived from the original paintings and has been meticulously restored.

Note, all material on this blu-ray+3CD package will feature on the forthcoming Complete 1969 Sessions – the eighth boxed set in the series documenting King Crimson’s studio & live recordings from 1969 onwards.

In The Court of the Crimson King is reissued on 25 October 2019, via Panegyric

Available as a pre-order on Amazon UK for $38.25

So I guess the 40th Anniversary edition wasn't good enough.
