King Crimson The Elements 2021 Tour Box - Sealed UK 2 CD album set (Double CD)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
Last year's Tour-box 2020 wound up charting a postponed tour. But fans still wanted it and now that it looks like a 2021 tour (at least in the USA) is happening, here we are with what has, in recent years, become something of an annual tradition for King Crimson fans since the 2014 (present) line-up(s) commenced touring again.
As per usual, it's an opportunity to compile material - much of it unreleased on disc - to present King Crimson's music in slightly unexpected ways and, hopefully, shedding some new light on the band and its music along the way. For this year's compilation, and perhaps appropriately for a band that has sported a three drummer line-up seated at the front of the stage since 2014, disc one features tracks which showcase KC's rich history of drummers and percussionists, while Sid Smith's liner notes also focus on the drummers. Disc 2 take a slightly more song based detour through all eras of Crim history ending, as concerts have since 2014, with Starless. Both discs feature plenty of historic material and lots of live material by the current band and both also feature a sneak exclusive track/edit from the forthcoming, much anticipated, Robert Fripp “Exposures” multi-disc boxed set.
While initially designed as a one-off equivalent of a tour booklet for the 2014 tour these two-disc sets have since grown into a much loved and well collected series in their own right.
