A King Crimson ProjeKct, A Scarcity Of Miracles is the debut release from (Jakko) Jackszyk, (Robert) Fripp, and (Mel) Collins.

Featuring a dream rhythm section comprising Gavin Harrison and Tony Levin, ASOM is a sonically rich and detailed collection of surprisingly accessible and heartfelt songs which boasts a seductive, widescreen production.

Echoing elements of King Crimson's unique vocabulary, while presenting a unified group sound far removed from anything previously released under the KC name, A Scarcity Of Miracles manages to be both intimate and epic, complex yet immediate.

Honouring a great band's legacy, whilst undoubtedly taking it somewhere new, ASOM is the Crimson related album your wife and ballad loving friend might just fall in love with!

'One of my favourite albums of those where I am a determining element. It has the Crimson gene, but it is not quite KC.' - Robert Fripp

The album comes as a standard cd, a heavyweight 200gm gatefold vinyl edition and in a deluxe cd / dvda version (which features a 5.1 mix, 24/96 stereo, the ASOM video, and an album's worth of alternate mixes and improvs from the original sessions).

I heard about this, but I'm not really familiar with Fripp's work outside of early Crimson... There are so many KC releases and variations on the theme, along with Fripp's various side projects and solo work, I've always been hesitant to dive in. It could potentially be a very expensive proposition. :lol:

Have you heard any of this stuff, Napster?

That is strange. I'd have pegged you for a fan of their early stuff.

I have their first few albums (mostly the anniversary editions from PT's store)... I've liked them, but I'm still a bit hesitant to try their later work, which to my understanding can definitely be an acquired taste.

Larks' Tongues In Aspic Boxset


The long-awaited 40th anniversary edition of the legendary Larks’ Tongues In Aspic quintet will be released on October 15th.

One of the key recordings in the King Crimson canon, and the only formal studio recording by the LTIA quintet, the 40th Anniversary Edition will be released in three separate editions to satisfy the merely curious and the expectant collector.






1. CD/DVD-A: CD: New stereo mix + selected audio extras – all new content.
DVD-A featuring 5.1 new surround mix, original & new stereo mixes in hi-res stereo, a full album of alt mixes by Steven Wilson & more than 30 minutes of unseen footage of the band live in the studio.


2. Limited edition Boxed Set:13CDs, 1DVD-A, 1Blu-Ray in 12” box with booklet & memorabilia. DVD-A content as above, Blu-Ray content as per DVD-A with further hi-res stereo material – all presented in DTS Master audio, 4CDs of studio content including CD of session reels featuring the first recorded takes of all pieces on the album, 1CD live in the studio, 8CDs of live audio restored bootlegs & soundboard recordings + 36 page booklet with an extensive new interview with Robert Fripp, notes by King Crimson biographer Sid Smith, album sleeve print, concert ticket replica (with code for further concert download) & band photo postcards – limited to initial orders, one pressing only to a worldwide maximum limit of 7,000 units.

3. 2CD: Complete original & new mixes with selected audio extras.
Whilst the clip of the quintet performing LTIA pt1 during the Bremen Beat Club recording has been available on the internet for several years in varying degrees of quality, there has been some fevered speculation as to whether the full concert would ever see the light of day.

Though it's been a long time coming, the full video of David Cross, Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Bill Bruford and Jamie Muir will now be seen in full. We hope all Crimheads agree that the waiting to get this in the best possible quality will have been worth while.

Oh, damn you Steven Wilson! Why do you keep picking my pocket like this? :x

:lol:

I guess I just have no "Discipline"... :?

I feel like Sheldon when Will Wheaton faked him out with the dead "Mee Maw" story during the "Mystic Warlords of Ka'a" tournament.

<Cue "The Wrath Of Khan"-inspired extraplantary fade-out>

Wheaton!!!! Wheaton!!!! Wheaton!!! Wheaton!!! Wheaton!!!


Or, in this case...

Wilson!!!! Wilson!!!! Wilson!!! Wilson!!! Wilson!!!

:lol:

PS ~ If nobody else here watches "The Big Bang Theory," I guess this whole post was just an exercise in futility... :lol:
