40th anniversary stereo mix by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp of King Crimson’s dazzling 1984 release, Three Of A Perfect Pair.
On 200g super-heavyweight vinyl for the first time. Mastered by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering from original studio masters.
Seven years after King Crimson had ‘ceased to exist’, King Crimson’s reinvention as a new quartet consisting of Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew and Tony Levin brought about a surprising new era, which delighted fans old and new.
Stylistically very different from the King Crimson of the 1970s, this new line-up incorporated rock with electronica, funk, pure pop, modern avant-garde, and a complex variety of musical textures and influences. The intricacies of the playing and details in the compositional style became a key influence on sub-genres such as math rock.
Three Of A Perfect Pair (1984) was the first of the abnd's 1980s albums to reach Top 30 in the UK album charts, signalling the increasing popularity of the 80s line-up and helping to ensure the group’s status as one of the most interesting and innovative bands of the decade.
