"With such a collection of outtakes it’s possible to easily discern and take stock of the potential forks in the road that were available to the different Crimsons. The track that we hold dear to our hearts, that which we regard as certain and true as anything in our lives, could well have been radically altered had a different disposition or judgement call prevailed. Mostly they tell us that what we got, in the end, was almost certainly correct, but they can help deepen and enhance our understanding of how something we love came to be."

Contains a 24 page PDF tour booklet and a 2CD collection of extracts, elements from studio recordings, alternate takes, live tracks, rehearsals & finished recordings from 1969 - 2014, much of it previously unreleased on CD.

Cadence and Cascade
...as sung by Greg Lake, just stopped me in my tracks for a moment. Experienced a confusing mix of wonderment, regret and elation. A wonderful tune, rediscovered. Thank you.

The True Treasure Trove
I ordered this and, due to technical issues, it took awhile to acquire. Now that I have listened through several times, I must say the range of songs and styles is such a refreshing listen that one should be required to obtain a prescription - addictive, in other words. My current favorite tunes are Cadence and Cascade and overwhelmingly Sailor's Tale. It is possibly one of my favorite versions and yet I cannot explain why. Alex, maybe someone there can comment. All I know is this offering is superb and highly recommended for purchase more importantly joyful listening.
