King Crimson Announce Live Album


Radical Action To Unseat The Hold Of Monkey Mind‘ is scheduled for release 2nd September, with pre-orders now available from Burning Shed. The multi-disc set will be available as a 3cd/1 bluray set or a limited 3cd/2dvd/1 bluray version.

From King Crimson’s website:

Taken from the 2015 tours of the UK, Canada & Japan, Radical Action represents the most comprehensive release for this incarnation of King Crimson, and will be available as a 3cd/1blu-ray set, and in a 3cd/2dvd/1blu-ray limited edition.

Radical Action features every song and piece performed by Pat Mastelotto, Bill Rieflin, Gavin Harrison, Mel Collins, Tony Levin, Jakko Jakszyk and Robert Fripp and as Fripp commented last month while supervising mixing, “This is King Crimson… re-imagined”.

The details for the 3cd/2dvd/1blu-ray limited edition are as follows.
CDs presented as individually themed “virtual studio albums” with no audible audience & mixed for audio presentation

One Blu-Ray featuring a complete set-list drawn from Japanese concert performances – almost 3 hours of music – in high-resolution stereo & 5.1 surround audio complete with “picture off” mode allowing the music to be heard independently in pristine, lossless audio. (24/48khz as per original recordings)

Two DVDs featuring the full concert performances in stereo & 5.1 surround sound.

Expanded, perfect bound, booklet: 36 pages with additional tour photos.

Six disc set presented in two triple digi-packs with booklet housed in an outer slipcase.

All copies come with a postcard featuring Francesca Sundsten’s striking cover artwork

King Crimson – Beat and Three Of A Perfect Pair coming in 5.1

From DGMLive website:

DGM have confirmed the next releases in its celebrated King Crimson 40th anniversary CD/DVD-A series for an October release. ‘Beat’ (1982) and ‘Three of a Perfect Pair’ (1984) have been remixed in stereo and 5.1 surround sound by Steven Wilson with Robert Fripp.

Confirmation of full track listing / contents and a pre-sale announcement will follow in the next two weeks. Also it should be noted that all material on both titles will also be a part of a forthcoming King Crimson boxed set – “On and Off The Road 1981-1984”, also due for release in October 2016.

It has also been confirmed by David Singleton that ‘Discipline’ will be included in the new box set, neatly putting all 3 1980s King Crimson output in one place.

Following on from the recent ‘Live In Toronto 2015’ official bootleg series double cd set, a ‘full’ live release is planned also for later this year –  CD/Blu-ray, ‘Live In Takamatsu’, presumably to coincide with the European tour later this year.

Exciting and expensive times for the King Crimson fan!
