DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

KING CRIMSON (ABO#143)

KING CRIMSON
ONE TIME
(1969-2003)

King Crimson is considered as the creator of progressive rock. Even if some other great so-called progressive albums were issued before KC's first issue in 1969, no one can object upon the fact that King Crimson has been the most creative, dignified and sacred band progressive music has ever generated. Even Pink Floyd nor Yes haven't much aura within music lovers community.
This baistophe was hard to set, first because so many best ofs have been made, second because of the 3 different eras that don't have much common points with each other. I finally decided just to keep the most pop/polished songs to establish what could be called a "beginner's guide"... but the beginner's guide had already been chosen for a KC best-of...
For those who will cry not to find their favourite song or more experimental ones, I (or another contributor) will be looking after a more technical King Crimson best of, comprising of only live material, be they official or not.

If I had put it, Nearly the whole first LP whould have featured in that compilation. I had to make a choice and found the other songs were better. This is only my opinion. If you want to change the traklist, feel free to edit even the back cover ! I won't damn you for making that !

Superbe choix,
c'est vraiment surprenant comme In The Court Of reste important et difficile à ne pas prendre en entier.

Bravo pour votre blog

mille pourpres

C'est exactement à ça qu'on reconnait un album essentiel.
J'ai eu exactement le même problème avec Red.

OOOoooh I just understood the joke with "baistophe", although my true first name ends with "tophe" I thought that baiztophe had to do with fucking chris or something like that, I must be very confused or dépenaillé...
et en regardant tes albums, je me disais que ça me rappelait vraiment le rédactionnel de mister moodswings... avant de voir que tu t'en réclames, comme un disciple bricoleur...
Congratulations !
