Limited box set containing two CD history of King Crimson featuring many extracts and tracks appearing on CD for the first time. Packaged in DVD sized fold-out digipak style book case with 24 page booklet. Originally available only at concert venues on King Crimson's sold out European 2015 tour, The Elements tour box was devised specifically for the 2015 King Crimson tour and as a companion volume to the highly successful 2014 tour box.
The depth and variety of King Crimson's archives allows for the presentation of such "alternate best of/introduction to... " style releases, providing a fascinating audio history of the band featuring extracts of the current line-up in rehearsal pre-tour, new live recordings taken from last year's sold out US tour, elements from studio recordings, full tracks, alternate takes and finished recordings from 1969-2015, many of which make their first appearance on CD. Every line-up is featured across the double disc release.
The set also provides tantalizing audio extracts and hints of forthcoming King Crimson releases. The accompanying booklet features sleeve-notes by co-compiler Sid Smith, photos of memorabilia, full info about the current tour and a number of band and individual photos of the line-up taken by band member Tony Levin.
