King Crimson 1969-1972 is a limited edition boxed set presenting the band's celebrated quartet of studio albums from that period — In The Court Of The Crimson King, In The Wake Of Poseidon, Lizard, Islands — in their 40th anniversary edition mixes (created by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp between 2009-2010).

Additionally, a 2LP set of rarities is included, a complete alternate version of "In the Court of the Crimson King" mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and featuring artwork as originally presented in "The Young Person's Guide to King Crimson" — the band's first, 1975 issued, compilation. A full-sized replica of the original King Crimson timeline booklet which accompanied that compilation is also included.

This is the first time that these mixes have appeared on vinyl. All albums are cut from the same hi-res masters used for the 40th anniversary CD/DVD-A series, pressed on 200-gram super-heavyweight vinyl, and presented in their original sleeves.
