DGM is proud to present the fourth in a series of King Crimson high quality vinyl reissues with the May release of "Red". The album's return to the 12" vinyl format is newly cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp. Manufactured on 200 gram super-heavyweight vinyl & housed in a reprint of the original sleeve, this edition also contains bonus MP3 codes giving access to a download of a transfer of an original 1974 pressing - in this case taken from Robert Fripp's personal file copy of the album.

Demand for King Crimson vinyl is stronger than at any time since the mid-1970s. As one of the band's most influential & best-selling albums this title has been one of the most requested titles for vinyl reissue.

Released in 1974 after King Crimson had “ceased to exist”, Red remains a remarkably powerful document of a group quitting at the top of its game. The grinding crunch of Red appears to anticipate much of the heavy metal scene whilst the epic Starless brings together several strands of the group’s musical history.

Including powerful contributions from Ian McDonald, Mel Collins, David Cross, Mark Charig and Robin Miller, Red form what is arguably the definitive statement of the ‘70s period Crimson. Bill Bruford recently described the album in just five words: Prescient, short and bass heavy.”
