(Classic Rock) King Crimson are gearing up to release the fabled Blue Tapes recordings from the Starless And The Bible Black era. The recordings were made during performances given by Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Bill Bruford and David Cross in 1973 and 1974.
They're to be included in a multi-disc box set entitled Starless, which continues a series of extensive live collection released by Fripp's DGM Live label.
But the contents have not been finalized - and Crimson staff are keen to hear from fans who might have pictures, tapes or memories from the era. They say: "DGM is pleased to confirm that an October release date has been set for Starless, a multi-disc CD/DVD-A/Blu-Ray boxed set featuring live and studio recordings from October 1973 to April 1974.
"This set will feature the first complete release of the Blue Tapes - the highest quality reel-to-reel direct to stereo/soundboard live recordings, with many appearing on CD for the first time." more on this story
