King Crimson - Lark's Tongues In Aspic: 40th Anniversary limited edition 15 disc box set (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 23-KCCBX 5
Yes, it's overkill, but it's kind of magnificent overkill, as it includes every recording there is by this band and much more. Read below to see what is included in this insanely deluxe set. The live performance DVD is beyond revelatory, as is the Session Reels and Alternate Takes discs. Now out of print and no more are to be made.
