Two CDs of digitally remastered masterpieces from King Crimson's many incarnations, all lead by the guitar majesty of Robert Fripp. Spanning the years 1969-2003, this may not hit upon every musical turn that Fripp and the boys have taken, but it certainly tries. Over 30 tracks including "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Vroom", "Epitaph", "Ladies Of The Road", "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Pt. 1", "Heartbeat", "Discipline" and many more.

Heck I already have all the tracks on the original CDs and even I'm tempted to buy it again... for the car..
Now I'm guessing that you are reading this because you are a) New to King Crimson or B) have heard something in the past and suspect it is something you would like but don't quite know where to start.
but maybe the price as a starter, almost 10 GBP seems a little high??
But don't let yourself hesitate for one moment longer for there is simply not one bad track on here and more so some really excellent ones make no mistake this is a group of muscians at the height of their power playing really great music well.
There are 32 standout tracks no less.. Each and every one has its own merit.
It would be near impossible to list or describe outstanding tracks and their story there simply are too many.. you might just as well select a CD from Crimson's extensive catalogue and read the reviews of that particular one to get a better description.
I really would urge you to take a chance and buy this trul;y excellent double CD set...
This really should be banned BECAUSE I suspect that just like me when you hear one track then another you realise just how good this band are and you will end searching out up buying the whole lot. Just Like I seem to have done!
This is like crack cocaine to a recovering addict!! (apologies for any I offend with this comparison)
If you do I envy your journey over to the Crimson side .
You have been warned!!
This CD is a good place to start if like me you want to dip your toe in the Crimson pond.
A good starting point for an intro to king crimson, but buy some of their other albums to see just how good they actually were.

Outstanding album for an overall view of King Crimson and their change in style/mood over the yearsPublished 4 months ago by John F.
bought this because I wanted to know how Pro rock music started and apparently these were the forbearers. Read morePublished 21 months ago by The Director
I had forgotten how progressive King Crimson are. Sometimes a little too progressive for me. Although I'm glad I have it in my collection. Read morePublished on 28 Sept. 2010 by E. Carruthers
