A companion to the successful 2014 and 2015 Tour Boxes, the 2016 Elements Tour Box was previously only available at venues on King Crimson's sold-out 2016 European tour. 
 
Elements 2016 represents a fascinating 'alternative' audio history of King Crimson featuring extracts from rehearsals, live recordings, elements from studio recordings, full tracks, alternate takes and finished recordings recorded between 1969-2015. Many of the pieces are making their first appearance on CD and every KC line-up is featured on the double cd set. 
 
The set also provides tantalising hints of forthcoming King Crimson releases. 
 
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 2016 tour and a number of band and individual photos of the current band line-up.
 
The companion 2014 and 2015 Tour Box releases are in stock and shipping now.
