King Crimson: Starless and Bible Black: 40Th Anniversary Edition (CD+DVD-Audio HiRES 96/24) 2011 Release Date: 10/24/2011
Alternately trippy and thunderous, this 1974 LP (featuring Fripp, Bruford and Wetton) hit the U.S. charts almost a year to the day after Larks' Tongues in Aspic did. The Great Deceiver; Lament; the Night Watch; Trio this experimental gem managed to outdo the prog classic that preceded it; this reissue is full of alternate mixes and other special treats.
The CD features a new stereo mix plus bonus tracks including the ultra-rare (performed once only) Guts on My Side. The DVD-Audio disc has the original and new mixes plus a 5.1 surround mix, 5.1 Lossless audio and stereo mixes, video footage of Easy Money and an improv from NY's Central Park ('73), audio extras including live cuts and radio edits and more!
