In The Court Of The Crimson King

  (Item #: kingcinthe_1802_1) 

Our Price: $899.99

  • With two sides rating a Triple Plus (A+++) or very close to it, this was one of the best copies in our most recent shootout

  • At good loud levels the horns blasting away on 21st Century Schizoid Man are guaranteed to blow your mind on this copy
  • 5 Stars: "The group's definitive album, and one of the most daring debut albums ever .... it blew all of the progressive/psychedelic competition out of the running, although it was almost too good for the band's own good -- it took King Crimson nearly four years to come up with a record as strong or concise."

  • "The group's definitive album, and one of the most daring debut albums ever .... it blew all of the progressive/psychedelic competition out of the running, although it was almost too good for the band's own good -- it took King Crimson nearly four years to come up with a record as strong or concise."
