King Crimson Elements 2020 2CD
A 2020 addition to the popular Tour Box series originally prepared for the postponed USA 2020 tour.
 
As with previous releases in the series, the full variety of King Crimson’s music is presented over 2 CDs with extracts from rehearsals, live recordings, elements from studio recordings, alternate takes and more from between 1969-2019. Tour Box 2020 includes 15 previously unreleased recordings.
 
The main sleeve-notes by KC historian Sid Smith present a series of (highly plausible) ‘what if?’ scenarios; routes and pathways the band could have followed had things been slightly different.
 
Disc one presents a mostly live selection of material, including four tracks taken from the 2019 tour. Disc two, in keeping with Sid Smith’s notes, presents pieces played only occasionally by the current line-up, pieces from the studio (both King Crimson and Robert Fripp that were never completed or developed in different ways), and material that never made it to a studio recording.
 
Packaged in a DVD-sized fold out digipak style book case with a 24 page booklet including sleeve notes by co-compiler Sid Smith and introductory notes by Robert Fripp.
