Digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD/DVD) edition of the Prog Rock band's classic 1974 album, released to coincide with King Crimson's 40th anniversary. The CD features three extra tracks (two previously unreleased) including pre-overdub mixes of the title track and 'Fallen Angel', which illustrate perfectly why the album has been such an enduring influence. The DVD features a 5.1 DTS mix and high resolution stereo mixes plus rare performance footage of four tracks broadcast by French TV in 1974. Presented as digipak in a slipcase with new sleeve notes by Robert Fripp and King Crimson biographer Sid Smith along with rare photos and archive material.

That being said RED is by far one of Crimson's best album's. The Line up of Fripp, Wetton and Bruford worked great together. The only thing that stinks is they only made three album's (well studio there are also a bunch of live CD's from this point in Crimson's career). If you like Prog. Rock or band's like Tool or NIN you might really like this CD. Best tracks "Red" and "Starless". I can not wait for to hear the DVD-A 5.1 mix.(Just got this today from Amazon.ca and Wow what a great mix. I was at first a little let down when i saw it was 48/24 and not 96/24 (there is a 96/24 stereo mix) but (for the first time) i really didn't notice any sound loss. This series was made from the original multi tracks and it really shows. The mix is what i call a center of room mix. That is were the sound is all around you and not just in the front with reverb in the back. Great liner notes and almost a half hour of live clips from French TV. These are in stereo (well double mono) but sound great. I guess French TV took better care then North American TV with the sound back in the 70's. Plus as far as i know this is all there is for this line up of King Crimson. Figures they can record anything today and most of the groups are crap.)

I had been looking for a used vinyl, unsuccessfully, for quite a while now. I was very happy to see a re-release.
This album comes from the regrettably short lived '73-'74 lineup of King Crimson, which features Robert Fripp on guitar and mellotron (the only constant member of all Crim's lineups), John Wetton on bass and vocals, Bill Bruford on drums, and David Cross on violin (who had quit the band when this album was recorded, but still played as a session musician). At the time of this album's release, it was believed that this was King Crimson's final album--and what a way to end this incarnation of the band at that! I find it astonishing how they still managed to function as a tight unit even though their relations were falling apart. Few albums made by bands on the verge of breakup can hold their weight against this one--the only two I can think of that measure up are The Beatles "Abbey Road" and Pink Floyd's "The Wall". Yes, "Red" is good enough to be mentioned in the same sentence as "Abbey Road" and "The Wall".
Many people are going to tell you to start with "In the Court of the Crimson King" in your investigation of King Crimson, but I think "Red" is the best starting point for everyone, reguardless of tastes (and to a previous reviewer who stated that "ItCotCK" is a better starting point for fans of other prog bands, you're wrong--I'm also a huge Floyd fan, and "Red" did a whole lot more to get me hooked on Crim than "ItCotCK" did).Read more ›
