King Crimson catalog to Spotify soon

2019-04-07 by on suicide watch | 42 Comments
Finally, as announced by band manager David Singleton, the entire King Crimson back music catalogue, from 1969's In The Court Of The Crimson King to 2003's The Power To Believe will go live sometime in May to non-Spotify stream services before coming to Spotify on June 10th.

Singleton offered the following:

"The reason we’ve been slow on Spotify is that, unlike apparently the whole of the rest of the industry that’s been telling us that physical is dead, we’ve had rising physical sales for probably the last 10 years," Singleton said, referring to titles issued via the band’s own DGM label. "But that argument was valid for a while, and it isn’t anymore."

June 10th is also the date the band will set off on a new 50th anniversary world tour starting in Leipzig, Germany.

I figured that would be the endgame after their successive Steven Wilson re-releases coming to a close with The Power to Believe. We can say goodbye to all those stingy Fripp memes on Prog Snob!

If all the Steven Wilson remixed versions are going up that'd be perfect. I'm guessing yes since Spotify always seems to pick the remastered version of every album if it exists.

Crimson fanbase is very selective dude. I'm not expecting a guy who listens generic music to pick in the crimson court any time soon.

The Steven Wilson remixes are better in a lot of ways yea, especially Lizard. Wilson even got Fripp himself to appreciate that album more, when Fripp heard Wilson's remix of his own album!

Good news, this means I can finally check their discog beyond In the Court (I probably could have anyway, but effort would've be needed).

i have no idea why court is their most popular album, especially with that title track. i feel like people buy into the apparent elitism of that album without either liking or getting any of it. not that there's anything to get in the first place, and at the same time i definitely still like it, but i find it's an amateurish debut album that is overshadowed by almost any of their following records. this band goes MUCH higher than they do in court

agree Sin, I actually didnt get the hype of them becasue I had only heard Court, and wasnt looking to hear more after hearing court. I am really glad I got around to hearing more, becasue their others are unreal

also I know I am old, well on here anyway, but as a music lover I want to hold something that I love, maybe it is the record collector in me, but hearing everything on line sucks, it is only in emergency situations. I know everybody laughs at me about it but whatever

Nothing against the guy, but does anyone else feel like any album Steven Wilson remasters ends up sounding totally flat by the end? Just me?

Very excited. Was already when they recently released a bunch of live albums throughout the years, but this is great news. Wonder if they'll have Wilson remasters and/or originals

Nah I really enjoy at least 80% of Wilson's remasters but production is a very subjective thing.
