2.0 poorGratefulJerry | October 29th 17

The major drawback with this collection is that almost all of it's focus is on the band's three '80's albums. Of the 10 albums released between 1969 and 1975, only songs from "In the Court of the Crimson King" album appears on this cd release and those songs are bundled up at the end. The vinyl and cassette versions did include an additional two songs Red and Cat Food (single version). This collection also seemed to do away with "A Young Person's Guide to King Crimson" which gave a much better overview of the band's earlier era. I would've preferred it if this collection had either just included the '80's or stuff that hadn't been used on "Young Person's" and that collection remained readily available. Thankfully, later King Crimson collections give a better overview than this one does.
