It's difficult between Court, Lizard, and Larks. And Red is pretty good too. But since there are parts of Lizard that I don't like su much (everything after Bolero), and I don't like Larks part 1 so much, I go with Court.

Lizard, Islands and Larks are some of my favorite KC's songs.  Islands this time.

Just keep trying and you'll adjust to the weird until it sounds normal!

But my vote goes to Larks'. Can't beat the raw power (on Pt. 2) and intense beauty (on Pt. 1 & 2) of Larks'.

The track 'Starless and Bible Black' is not on the album of the same name - it is on Red.  However, because it is on your list I will vote for it!

There is "Starless", which is on Red, indeed.
There is also "Starless and Bible Black", which is on album called "Starless and Bible Black".

So, Starless and Starless and Bible Black are two different tracks.

Yes, and while Starless is usually voted the best KC song of all (if not the best prog song) Starless and Bible Black is a somewhat aimless improvisation that is not generally well liked.

You are absolutely right.  I can't believe that I made such a schoolboy error!  Mind you, even the lyrics of Starless say (at the end of each verse): 'Starless and bible black'.   No excuse though....!

I wish I could change my selection now.  I should have chosen 'Red'.

My favorite live DVD is probably Three of a Perfect Pair: Live in Japan.
My favorite live CD package is The Great Deceiver(especially disc 2 in Providence, RI June '74), which is excellent, although I think it might be out of print now.

I like even better "Collectible King Crimson, Vol. 1", which has two concerts from the same era, and my very favourite version of Starless, Exiles, and 21st Century Schizoid Man. Plus one of my favourite versions of Easy Money.
