5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear... Come over to the Crimson Side....., 20 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Condensed 21st Century Guide To King Crimson (1969 - 2003) (Audio CD)
This CD set is excellent.
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...

BUT..

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!!

I like the way you set this review up Glenn.I have got myself hooked on the Old Grey Whistle Test performance of Frame by Frame. Currently looking for an overview to get more familiar with their work. I think this will do the trick.Must dig out my Crimson vinyls .I have never played them,should be very entertaining.
