|Soon to be released, and all available for Pre-Order right now.
First up, the next 2 in the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series.
Available at http://www.burningshed.com/store/kingcrimson/ and should ship in early to mid september.
These discs have been lovingly remixed from the original multitrack tapes by Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No-Man etc), overseen by Robert Fripp.
The attention to detail is astounding - the first batch in the series included the legendary "In The Court Of The Crimson King" and they went back to original submix tapes in a lot of places, allowing far more control over the final mix.
With the next 2 in the series, Steven again delivers the goods, turning in what can only be described as an outstanding mix of "In The Wake Of Poseidon" that simply gets better every time you hear it. Not any one particular track, but the whole lot.
Islands will be another "must have" for any fan of the band too, as not only do you get the new mixes in both Stereo & 5.1 and the 30th anniversary remaster of the original mix, the extras section really pulls out all the stops with a 50 minute "Routes to Islands" section featuring early versions, rehearsals & live performances of what turned into Islands. In addition there is an "Alternate Islands" set with out takes & alternate mixes. If that is not enough, then okay - they have yet more with an "assorted ladies" section and another 6 different tracks.
Also up on Pre-Order is the latest DVD-A/V release from Gavin Harrison & O5Ric, "Circles" and can be found at
This is a fine album, with a superb 5.1 mix by Jakko Jakszyk that really gets you deeply into the mix with an agressive but far from showy approach. Punchy, tight & powerful this is a must buy for surround fans.
