If you thought, even for a moment that King Crimson has released more than enough material for their classic albums, you’d be wrong.
King Crimson is revisiting Red in a great big way with the UK release of The Road To Red. The Road To Red will fill a box with 24 discs, 20 of them live music from their 1974 support tour in the US and Canada. That’s 20 CDs of live Red-era concert performances. That alone should awe you.
In addition to the 20 CDs, there is a CD with a new Stereo mix of Red, a DVD of concert footage, two Blu-ray discs containing a whooping selection of goodies including five complete concerts in hi-res Stereo, plus Red in hi-res Stereo and 5.1 Surround.
The set will complete with a booklet of memorabilia, photos, and other great things.
This massive box will release via Panegyric Records and is scheduled for UK markets on October 14.
The Steve Wilson remix of Close To The Edge by Yes has a release date of October 14 in the UK. The set will be issued on two discs, a CD, and a BD (there will also be a CD and DVD-Audio set). Many of us are completely excited about this reissue hoping that we get to hear new things on such a much-loved classic. Don’t hold back. This is a ‘must get’ album for Yes fans, and remember, Christmas is but a scant few months away. Put it on your list.
EMI UK have a compelling 8CD Box set coming on September 30. The set features the live performances of one of the most underrated bands ever, Be Bop Deluxe. The set is called Be Bop Deluxe At The BBC 1974-1978. The eight CDs quite literally provide a treasure of performances that include Peel sessions, BBC live shows, and Old Grey Whistle Test performances. I’m all over this one.
Panegyric will reissue USA from King Crimson in a CD/DVD 40th Anniversary Edition on October 14.
