Product Description

'This is King Crimson....re-imagined.' - Robert Fripp, June 2016.

A comprehensive and immersive account of the 2015 live incarnation of the ever evolving entity that is the mighty King Crimson.

It has been stated many times that King Crimson is not so much a band as it is 'a way of doing things'. Less frequently stated but equally true, is the fact that the band inevitably seeks different ways of doing things. The current incarnation of the band, 2014 the present day, has already released two taster sets in the form of 2015 s Live at the Orpheum mini-album and the vinyl picture disc EP that accompanied the 2015 tours of Canada and Japan, while the full raw concert performance from a single night in Toronto in 2015 was presented as a 2 CD set earlier this year to great acclaim. Now, with the release of Radical Action comes the most fully realized audio and visual statement from this band to date, running to three themed CDs and a Blu-Ray disc offering the filmed content along with an audio-only option in lossless high resolution stereo and surround sound.

The set includes at least one performance of every song/piece of music played by King Crimson in 2015, some pieces originally composed in 1969 the year of the band's inception, others composed/initially performed at a variety of points since, some new to the tour, all arranged for this specific line-up.

Featuring a 20-page booklet and presented in two mini-vinyl style gatefold sleeves in an outer slipcase, Radical Action includes:

* Three CDs - presented as individually themed 'virtual studio albums' with no audible audience - featuring a representative example of every song/piece performed by King Crimson on its 2015 tours of the UK, Canada and Japan.

* One Blu-Ray featuring a complete concert performance in high-resolution stereo and 5.1 surround audio, complete with 'picture off' mode allowing the music to be heard independently in pristine, lossless audio. (24/48khz as per original recordings).

Robert Fripp: Guitar & keyboard
Mel Collins: Saxes & flute
Gavin Harrison: Drums
Jakko Jakszyk: Guitar & voice
Tony Levin: Basses & stick
Pat Mastelotto: Drums
Bill Rieflin: Drums & keyboards

Review

'This is as comprehensive an account of the current incarnation of Crimson as you are likely to find. It's been superbly put together, both musically and in the way it's packaged.
Here we have the tour edition of this package in all its glory... Each performance is as it was recorded on the night, but with all audience noise removed. The performances have been sequenced to flow over the three themed CDs: 'Mainly Metal', 'Easy Money Shots' and 'Crimson Classics'.
They include representative performances of every piece played by the band during the 2015 shows, and as such cover all eras of the band's existence from 1969 to the present. Needless to say, the musical dexterity is peerless, and the performances, sourced from a variety of shows, are simply stunning in their intensity and prowess...' --The Afterword

'Radical Action is the definitive live Crimson release from the definitive live Crimson lineup; more than enough to bolster the suggestion that Fripp is, indeed, the Miles Davis of the progressive/art rock world...and, considering the full breadth of his career, other arenas as well. And for that reason alone (and there are many others), 'Radical Action (To Unseat The Hold of Monkey Mind)' is a landmark recording from a group whose discography is filled with them...' --All About Jazz (John Kelman)
