King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King [DTS 5.1] RE-UP

Audio Format: Digital Surround DTS 5.1

To play DTS CDs you need to have equipment that supports DTS and a surround sound system that is capable of decoding the DTS signal. Don't play this on equipment that isn't compatible because you'll only hear static!

is the 1969 debut album by the British progressive rock group King Crimson. The album reached #3 on the British charts. The album is certified gold in the United States. The album is generally viewed as one of the strongest of the progressive rock genre, where blues-oriented rock was mixed together with jazz and European symphonic elements. In his 1997 book Rocking the Classics, criticmusicologist Edward Macan notes that In the Court of the Crimson King may be the most influential progressive rock album ever released. The Who's Pete Townshend was quoted as calling the album an uncanny masterpiece. The album was remastered and re-released on vinyl and CD several times during the 1980s and 1990s. The original stereo master tapes were finally located in a Virgin Records storage vault in 2003, leading to a much improved remastered CD version released in 2004.
Barry Godber (1946–1970), an artist and computer programmer, painted the album cover. Godber died in February 1970 of a heart attack, shortly after the album's release. It would be his only painting, and is now owned by Robert Fripp. Fripp had this to say about Godber: Peter brought this painting in and the band loved it. I recently recovered the original from EG's offices because they kept it exposed to bright light, at the risk of ruining it, so I ended up removing it. The face on the outside is the Schizoid Man, and on the inside it's the Crimson King. If you cover the smiling face, the eyes reveal an incredible sadness. What can one add? It reflects the music.
The album consists of only 5 long songs. Most of these have additional titles given to sub-sections. This was done not to reflect actual divisions in the music but to ensure that the group would receive the full amount of song writing royalties from their music publisher. With the sub-sections included the album can be seen as having a full 12 songs, the typical number for a standard rock album. Since the album was made new rules have become standard in the music publishing business which take into account the length of the songs as well as the number of titles on an album.
Initial sessions for the album were held early 1969 with producer Tony Clarke, most famous for his work with the Moody Blues. After those sessions failed to work out the group was allowed to produce themselves. However, unofficially it is thought by most fans that Greg Lake actually did most of the production work on the album by himself. The album was recorded on an 8-channel master tape recorder at Wessex Sound Studios in London. The engineer was Robin Thompson. It took many hours of overdubbing to build up the orchestral sound of multiple layers of Mellotron and woodwinds played by Ian McDonald. Robert Fripp has since claimed that at least some of the original 8-channel master multitrack tapes for the album have been lost. Soon after the recording sessions were completed in 1969 it was discovered that a stereo tape recorder used to mix the album had recording heads that were mis-aligned. A loss of high-frequencies and undesired distortion affected some parts of the album, most apparently on 21st Century Schizoid Man. While preparing the first American release on Atlantic Records a stereo sub-master tape copy was created that attempted to correct some of the sound problems. The first-generation stereo master tapes were filed away and forgotten for many years.
The most recent CD version (described as the "Original Master Edition", DGM0501) was released in 2004 on Robert Fripp's Discipline Global Mobile label. This release has greatly improved sound over previous CD editions. LP and CD re-issues during the 1980s and 1990's by Polydor and EG Records were taken from tape copies several generations removed from the corrected stereo sub-master tape. This resulted in a lack of clarity and excessive tape hiss. Several different remastered CD versions were released in this period while attempting to make the best use of the tape recordings that were available. The first generation stereo master tapes for the album were finally rediscovered in the archives of Virgin Records in 2003. They had been misplaced for many years. The latest digital technology was used to repair high frequency problems caused during the original mixing sessions. 24 bit mastering was also utilized to enhance the sound. This latest edition also has a twelve-page booklet that includes pictures and press clippings from the period. ---
Steven Wilson has begun remixing the original master tapes into 5.1 Surround Sound, and a 40th Anniversary edition is scheduled to be released around October of 2009.
