I'm working my way through the latest King Crimson box set, which i picked up exactly on release date !
The Sailors' Tales box covers the period 1970-1972, and consists of 21 CDs, 4 blu-rays, and 2 dvds, plus additional goodies (including a filmposter for The Devil's Triangle, a documentary on the Bermuda triangle, narrated by Vincent Price, for which King Crimson apparently provided some of the sounds and music)
This is my fifth of the huge KC box sets, and arguably the best one yet, as overall sound-quality is superb, even though some of the live CDs are taken from audience cassette recordings that still sounded a bit rough in the Larks' Tongues In Aspic box set. Obviously, a lot of tender loving care went into this project !
I tried listening to this, but sadly long gone are the glory days of the earlier albums. It just sounds too dull and didn't hold my interest. I listened to 3 or 4 songs off and then turned it off and put on this ....
