KING CRIMSON: ELEMENTS OF KING CRIMSON (Ltd 2CD Tour Edition Compilation / Rare & Unreleased Tracks - Stock # 1735945) Normally 2CD £18.99 - Ltd Offer 2CD £14.99

'Elements Of King Crimson' is a 2CD set created to promote the band's 2014 tour of the same name.
It was sold exclusively through the band's merchandise stand on the tour and from the Discipline Global Mobile online stores and now we've managed to get some copies on import.
The box's content is less focused on actual songs and more on song "elements"; extracts of studio recordings, alternate takes, mixes with one or two instruments isolated, live recordings and rehearsals.
The tour box is the first CD release for most of the tracks included. Some of them have already been released for digital download through the DGM Live website, while some others are set to be included in future DGM releases.
The box comes with a 24-Page Booklet and marks the first time both 'studio' and 'live' recorded material with Gavin Harrison has been released on CD, the first time material with Jakko Jakszyk has been released under the KING CRIMSON name, and the first time material with Bill Rieflin has been released overall.

KING CRIMSON personnel for this title: Robert Fripp (guitars / keyboards / soundscapes), Michael Giles, Ian Wallace, Bill Bruford, Jamie Muir, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin (drums / percussion), Ian McDonald (woodwinds / keyboards), Greg Lake, Boz Burrell, John Wetton (vocals / bass), Peter Sinfield, Richard Palmer-James (lyrics), Peter Giles (bass), Mel Collins (saxophones / flutes), David Cross (violin), Mark Charig (cornet), Tony Levin (bass / Chapman stick), Adrian Belew, Jakko Jakszyk (guitar / vocals / lyrics) and Trey Gunn (Chapman stick / Warr guitar).
