40th anniversary series DVD Audio and CD

Mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original studio masters

Bonus tracks and video footage included

This classic album has been mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original studio masters by Steven Wilson* (Porcupine Tree) and is fully approved by Crimson founder Robert Fripp. The CD features a completely new stereo album mix by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson ("Trio" and "The Mincer" have been up-mixed to 5.1 by Simon Heyworth and Robert Fripp.)

The CD also features extra tracks, some previously unreleased, including the full version of "The Law of Maximum Distress"/"The Mincer improv," a 1973 live version of "Dr. Diamond" (always popular live but never recorded by the band in the studio) and a restored audio bootleg recording of the extremely rare, performed once only, "Guts On My Side."

Alternately trippy and thunderous, this 1974 LP (featuring Fripp, Bill Bruford and John Wetton) hit the U.S. charts almost a year to the day after Larks' Tongues in Aspic did. Featuring "The Great Deceiver", "Lament," "The Night Watch" and "Trio," this experimental gem managed to outdo the prog classic that preceded it. This reissue is full of alternate mixes and other special treats.
