A Burning Question
"Cut by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering from original 24/96 high-resolution source files with artwork derived from the original paintings, as meticulously restored for the limited edition full sized, signed prints." What are these "limited edition full sized, signed prints"? Thank you.

ItCotcK Cover - Photos of paintings
I´d like to expand Harry Spade´s question. Could you please post photos of the original paintings done by Barry Godber of the album artwork (The crimson king and the 21st schizoid man)? I assume those are two paintings? We don´t know how they really look and how big they are and besides don´t know the condition they are in. Please take some pics at Robert´s home ;-) And of course: Happy 50th Anniversary KC!

album cover question
I've enjoyed all the write-ups about the debut album, but have a lingering question. What's the story with the inside cover artwork? Was it painted at the same time or upon request after the front cover was approved? I've always loved the image and would like to know a bit more about it. Thanks!

Thanks, the music was the great winner.
I went with the highest expectations, but I never expected a concert such this. It was far beyond my expectations, it was impressive, each one did his part as a fundamental stone in the music, even the public. I still can't believe how great the show was, I'm still kind of shocked. Thank you guys to make us enjoy the music and the experience like never did before.

The best concert in my entire life
It was the first King Crimson concert in Brazil, and words cannot describe how glad I am to have had the privilege to witness this historical moment first-hand. Easily the best concert I have ever attended, and I truly hope King Crimson will be back to Brazil - and South America in general - in the near future, and, if that happens, you can bet I'll be there again. Thank you for such an amazing experience.

Crimson indeed rocked in Rio
I'm 29 years old, and since my teenage years I've seen great live acts: New Order (2006), Paul McCartney (2010), Suede (2012), The Cure (2013), Blur (2013), Pixies ( 2014), Radiohead (2018)... Now King Crimson joins this pantheon, and is probably the top spot. Because the gig was at Rock in Rio, a Brazilian televised festival, the band had only one hour to play its set, instead of the almost three hours of their regular performances. Fripp and the others were very wise in the track selection, prioritizing the songs from their 50-year-old debut ("In the Court of the Crimson King", "Epitaph" and, as the thrilling finale of the gig, "21st Century Schizoid Man"), along with the ferocious title track of Red (an album that coincidentally celebrated 45 years of its release on the day of the Rock in Rio gig), two selections from the '80s albums (" Neurotica" and the marvelous "Indiscipline") and the three drummers solo "Drumsons" as the opening song. The audience was low for Rock in Rio standards (the lineup is full of contemporary pop acts and popular metal bands), but massive for King Crimson standards; it was probably their biggest attendance since Hyde Park 1969. I was at the front row, near the grid, and the people around me were from polarizing ages: most were 50 or 60-years-old, but surprisingly there were also lots of 20-years-old Crimso fans. The band noticed the passionate audience, and seemed very happy during and after the show. The songs were impeccably played; the best performances were "The Court of the Crimson King" and "Indiscipline",although "Epitaph" was a good download choice, as the chorus was extremely powerful (and the drums are fantastic). I was aware of King Crimson's reputation as a great live band, but this concert at Rock in Rio gave me the definitive proof of that. I'm more than glad, and I really hope that they return to Brazil in their next tour!

Memorable Night!
King Crimson is one of my favorite bands since the time I was at school (it's been like 15 years), so to see them live was an amazing experience! It was one of the best concerts I have attented in my life: the quality of the sound was amazing, together with the high music skills and creativity from all the members of the band. Thank you for this memorable night and for been such an amazing band, your music is really important to me and I really hope to see you guys again in Brazil!

1st KC Concert - Starless made me tearful
Just brilliant performance from the band. That moment the stage lights turned from blue to RED during the 1 note solo still gives me them chills...
