A companion to the successful 2014, 2015 and 2016 Tour Boxes, the 2017 Elements Tour Box was previously only available at venues on King Crimson's sold-out 2017 US/Canada/Mexico 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, new live recordings, elements from studio recordings, full tracks, alternate takes and finished recordings from 1969-2016, many of which make their first appearance on CD.
Every line-up is featured across the double CD set. Of particular interest on the new set is the inclusion on disc 2 of every part of Larks’ Tongues in Aspic (some studio, some live) from Part I to Level 5 – interspersed with elements taken from the original studio sessions and rehearsals.
Packaged in a DVD-sized fold out digipak style book case with a 24 page booklet including sleeve notes by co-compiler Sid Smith, photos of memorabilia, full info about the 2017 tour and a number of band and individual photos of the current band line-up.
The 2015 and 2016 Tour Box releases are in stock and shipping now.
