2 stars Not a good compilation, but....

Originally this compilation was a two vinyl set. When they released it in CD, two tracks were missed. The CD includes four of the five tracks of King Crimson's first recording "In The Court of the Crimson King", and the rest of the tracks are from "Discipline", "Beat" and "Three of a Perfect Pair" . These recordings are from the eighties, and are very different from King Crimson's first eight records. Most of us think that "Red" was KC "last album", and don't like this "new" group of the eighties. That's the reason why is very difficult to understand why Robert Fripp made this "personal selection" (as the booklet says) that combines such different styles. Nevertheless, this compilation has one advantage: If you don't have "In The Court of the Crimson King", you want a copy but can't find it, this is a good substitute. Forget that "Moonchild" is missed, insert the CD in yor CD player, press "9" and listen to one of the greatest masterpieces of prog-rock.
