King Crimson: Red (Vinyl LP)
Recorded at the end of two lengthy tours of the USA in 1974, the final album of the 1970s finds King Crimson in an raw and uncompromising mood. Consisting of Crimson founder guitarist Robert Fripp, bassist and vocalist John Wetton and drummer Bill Bruford, the trio serve up a sound that’s metal-edged, gritty and powerful.
Opening with the classic bulldozer instrumental title track, the album contains a typically eclectic mix that includes the jazzy rock of "Fallen Angel", the punchy attack of "One More Red Nightmare", the unsettling but dazzling near-telepathic improvisation of "Providence" and the stirring anthem, "Starless" whose opening ballad section gives way to a moving and emotional climax that is frequently cited as the ultimate King Crimson listening experience. 2013 reissue on 200 gram vinyl.
