King Crimson Islands: Limited Edition Ultra-Heavyweight 200gram Vinyl LP

Overview:

Single title, limited edition vinyl releases of titles previously available in boxsets only. Original studio album remixed by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp, pressed to audiophile black 200gm Vinyl, limited to 2000 copies per title worldwide.
Originally begun in 2009 by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp for King Crimson’s 40th anniversary, a series of new mixes were prepared in both stereo & 5.1 formats & issued as CD/DVD-a sets. The CD/DVD-A series also provided the catalyst for the larger scale King Crimson boxed sets as issued from 2012 onwards. The impact of both the CD/DVD-A series & the boxed sets helped to kick start a wider interest in the mainstream market for surround sound & for all-encompassing artist boxed sets. These titles are now being made available in limited editions & for a limited period as individual titles.
