hi rez
:: Posted by Undisciplined on August 30, 2016

Yes, Em is spot on with the current state of affairs. The Greater Crim has been very aware of this sector of the audience, and been willing to provide. A lot of credit goes to Steven Wilson for the surround mixes, but we have to give a big nod to Neil Wilkes for the work he does on these releases.

With the benefit of hindsight, DVD-A wouldnít be the standard hi rez format. After the box set started to gather steam, the Blu Ray audio really gathered steam. Back in 2009, this couldnít have been foreseen when the 40th Anniversary Series started. Still, itís nice to have choices available.

Very much looking forward to the two major releases over the next few days and then in October!

Confusion about Radical Action content
:: Posted by alexdrumoff on August 30, 2016

There seems to some confusion about the differences between the two editions of Radical Action...

Does the bigger set just contain additional 2 redundant DVDs + 16 extra pages in the booklet? Or is some "real" extra content included?

Best of times (audio resolution)
:: Posted by emory0 on August 29, 2016

Gotta say Iím loving the notion of more high-rez Crimson recordings. Though anti-audiophiles (ie, dudes with no ears) will wail and screech that one canít possibly hear the difference between CD and (say) 24/96, Iíd say that the real difference is that the higher resolution recordings are a lot less shrieky in the dynamics. Itís subtle, Iíll grant, but your ears can remain a little more relaxed, and you find that with lots of instruments (in particular), thereís just much more "room", so to speak, to hear all thatís going on. But the 7 piece Crimson really makes use of the higher resolution, even in Stereo.

And just before the tour, too!

Claypool Lennon in the Court of the Crimson King

During the their set at Outside Lands and Arts Music Festival, The Claypool Lennon Delirium whipped out a wonderfully creepy version of "The Court of the Crimson King".

Best of times
:: Posted by Bwilmot on August 29, 2016

Has there ever been a better time to be a Crim fan? Over a span of a little over a month we get the release of not one, but two very promising deluxe packages. I am going nuts waiting for Monkey Mind. Then there is On And Off The Road. The more I look at it, the more I like it. My system isnít audiophile by any means, but after springing for a 5.1 soundbar last year, Iíve been really digging the 40th Anniversary series. Wilsonís mixes have been the most worthwhile reissues of any music Iíve purchased. I was just going to get Beat and Pair but the rest of the box was too much to pass up. 5.1 Absent Lovers and all the video concerts are just too much to pass up. If you are on the fence, join frequent flyers club. There is a substantial discount.
Best of all, the new band is on the verge of another tour. Sadly, there is an ocean between us. I shall be awaiting your reports. Iím surprised there has not been more speculation over the material to be added representing Lizard and SABB.
I thing Cirkus has to be the Lizard number. Starless is harder. The most hoped for has to be Fracture but that would be highly unlikely with Frippís new standard tuning. My guess is Lament but my wish is Night Watch. Canít wait to find out. I do so envy my brothers in Europe. Enjoy. Brad Wilmot

JBeerLTIA: Someone feel free to correct me, but I believe the sound is the mellotron and on recent tours it was played by Bill.

clearing shelves
:: Posted by gojikranz on August 24, 2016

pretty much every release of the wetton era is redundant if you have the three boxes, though I suppose the great deceiver box has some exclusive edits if you are a crazy completest (and if you have the boxes this may be a fair bet...).

I would probably be cautious about dumping the champagne urbana sessions and rehearsals and blows given how in thrakboxx they did not include every track from the vroom session and Nashville 98 sessions discs.

to answer the last question
:: Posted by Undisciplined on August 24, 2016

Clearing shelf space is also a concern of mine, as is regaining some value for the redundant CC discs with On and Off the Road contents as replacements.

According to my best:

Moles Club, Bath
Live in Munich
Live at Cap díAgde
Champaign-Urbana Sessions
Rehearals & Blows
Absent Lovers (obviously not CC)
Neal and Jack and Me (DVD)

As someone pushed for shelf real estate, a question to the forum.
Has anyone already listed what discs, including KCCC, are made completely redundant by the issuing of the big boxes?
If not Iíll start looking into it myself.
