Originally released on CD as part of King Crimson's 40th-anniversary series, the 1980s trilogy of Discipline, Beat and Three Of A Perfect Pair have long been over due on vinyl.
Seven years after King Crimson had "ceased to exist," King Crimson's reinvention as a new quartet consisting of Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew and Tony Levin brought about a surprising new era, which delighted fans old and new.
Stylistically very different from the King Crimson of the 1970s, this new line-up incorporated rock with electronica, funk, pure pop, modern avant-garde, and a complex variety of musical textures and influences.
Beat (1982) was released just eight months after the quartet's recording of Discipline and marked the first occasion where a KC lineup had remained intact for a two album stretch and the first album by the band to employ a separate producer — Rhett Davies. The album also charted upon release in the U.S. and the U.K. with compositions such as "Waiting Man," "Neal and Jack and Me" and "Heartbeat" becoming firm favorites with fans and concert-goers. This edition of Beat features the extended version of "Requiem."
