King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King (1999) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
This extremely well digitally remastered version of Court in a beautifully designed mini-lp sleeve replica package is a real treat for Crimson fans. Not only has the sound been remastered to perfection but the liner notes are also very well designed with lyrics and paper clippings harking to the old days included to boot. I thought the 30th Anniversary version was great but if you can believe it, this version is much better. The sound quality is excellent and makes the 30th Anniversary version sound mediocre in comparison. For want of a better definition and to satisfy those that absolutelymore… have to categorise everything that they hear, this would be the godfather of the progressive rock genre. To call it the progenitor of progressive rock would be misleading and incorrect as depending upon how you think about it, even Sgt Pepper's, Velvet Underground's first album and Pink Floyd's Sid Barrett days could all be called progressive rock but still this album is a work of art on it's own and is deserving of all the accolades that it has received to date and continues to receive today. Great opening powerhouse track followed by more mellow Moody Blues-like stuff and ending on a powerful note. Essential listening for music hobbyists and a recording that is seminal and really grows on you. Recommended.
