For Immediate Release

King Crimson To Release “Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017” & “Sailors' Tales (1970 – 1972)” - Limited Edition 27 Disc Boxed Set

King Crimson's “Official Bootleg: Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017,” a two CD set, taken from the band's most recent US tour, will be released on October 13, 2017. Presented as a King Crimson Collectors' Club special edition, King Crimson's “Live in Chicago is packaged in a media-book style hard cover 2CD edition with a 24 pages booklet featuring photographs by Tony Levin, introductory notes by Robert Fripp and photos/production notes by KC producer/manager David Singleton. 

The album showcases many iconic King Crimson pieces performed live by this line-up for the first time – some being played live for the first time ever, including: “Islands,” “The Lizard Suite,” “The Errors,” “Fallen Angel,” “Cirkus” & more..

Featuring:
Mel Collins: Saxes & flute, Robert Fripp: Guitar & keyboards, Gavin Harrison: Drums, Jakko Jakszyk: Guitar & voice, Tony Levin: Basses, stick, voice Pat Mastelotto: Drums, Bill Rieflin: Keyboards, Jeremy Stacey: Drums & keyboards

 “If we are looking for a KC live (show); Chicago was exceptional” – Robert Fripp

 “One of our best” – Tony Levin

Reasons for the CD release:

1) Musicians know when a gig has really worked; when all the practicing, rehearsing, playing, set-list comes together in a particular time & venue with a particular audience. So, when musicians unanimously say that a concert was special, it's time to pay attention & plan a release for the broader community of fans as soon as is possible

2) King Crimson is a band that's best experienced live & if you can’t be there, the live album is the next best thing. Those fortunate to have recently witnessed the band live will surely want to also own this new live release.

“King Crimson - Sailors' Tales (1970 – 1972)” - Limited Edition 27 Disc Boxed Set containing 21CDS/4Blu-Rays/2DVD (all audio) will be released on November 3, 2017.

With much of the material from “In The Wake Of Poseidon,” “Lizard” and “Islands” now being performed by the current King Crimson line-up (2014 - to present), it is only in recent years that the wider world has begun to realise what fans have always known: this era's recordings are as vital as any other segment of the King Crimson catalogue. 

Recorded between the dazzling impact of “In The Court Of The Crimson” in 1969 and the startling reinvention of the band in 1973's “Larks' Tongues In Aspic,” this boxed set documents a crucial period in King Crimson's history and shows it to be brimming with innovation, experimentation, and boundary-pushing energy. 

With a wealth of previously unheard studio recordings from band rehearsals to full alternate mixes and a vast array of live material, much of it on CD/Blu-Ray for the first time and including four recently found, never before released concerts, this set presents the complete King Crimson recorded history of the period in the best quality audio possible.

A lot of bells and whistles (27 discs!) but the concert sounds intriguing.

Never. ;)

Unless its 90% of the already released concerts from this lineup...then agreed.

The Poseidon/Lizard/Islands era is my 2nd favorite after the Wetton/Bruford years, and the extensive collection of live shows is tempting, but I've already got the KCCC discs, "Live at Summit Studio", "Live at Detroit 12/13/1971", "Live at Plymouth 5/11/71" & "Live at Jacksonville" so I think I'll pass.
