1972-1974 contains a fourth album featuring a complete alternate version of Larks’ Tongues in Aspic – mixed and produced by Steven Wilson and featuring the LP’s original US artwork – plus the expanded edition of USA (in its 2013 mix by Robert Fripp, David Singleton and Tony Arnold). The set also contains a full-sized 24 page photographic booklet of the band during the period plus a poster of the King Crimson album art as it originally featured in The Young Person’s Guide to King Crimson.
All albums are cut from the same hi-res masters used for the 40th anniversary CD/DVD-A series, pressed on 200g super-heavyweight vinyl, and presented in their original sleeves.
Pre-order CD 1969-1972 for 2nd November release and 1972-1974 for 23rd November release. A bundle of both boxes is available for 23rd November combined shipping.
Cries And Whispers is the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s A Foreign Place, Anthony Reynolds‘ hugely successful biography of Japan.
Detailing the fascinating musical adventures of Richard Barbieri, Rob Dean, Steve Jansen, Mick Karn and David Sylvian from 1983 to 1991, the book takes in Sylvian’s solo work, The Dolphin Brothers, Dali’s Car, the brilliant but ill-feted reunion release Rain Tree Crow, and more.
This limited deluxe hardback first edition (cloth-bound with a gold and silver foil debos) – designed by Carl Glover – includes many rare photographs, plus contributions from Bill Nelson, Johnny Marr, Bill Bruford, Robbie Aceto, Simon Raymonde, Ivo, Martin Fry, Michael Brook, Tim Bowness, Paul Morley, Thomas Dolby, the late Colin Vearncombe and others.
All copies will come with a postcard signed by the author.
Pre-order for 26th October release. To coincide, the softback version of A Foreign Place will be available at the special price of £13.99 until the release date of Cries And Whispers.
Nosound‘s 2018 studio album Allow Yourself finds the band in a new space once more, wholly embracing Alternative/Electronic influences and incorporating elements from The National, Notwist, and Portishead (alongside a production inspired by Bowie’s Blackstar and Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool).
Available as a CD in digipack reverse-board packaging with a 16-page booklet, a limited crystal clear 180g vinyl edition in a reverse-board gatefold sleeve at ‘early bird’ price, and a fetching red t-shirt.
Orders through Burning Shed will receive an exclusive signed postcard & wristband (while stocks last), immediate download of the first single Don’t You Dare and, on release date, the full album as an uncompressed binaural mix & FLAC 5.1 surround sound mix. One customer from pre-orders will be randomly selected to receive a signed vinyl test-press.
Uncertain Times is a limited edition double 45rpm 10” EP vinyl release in gatefold sleeve.
Featuring 4 tracks – 1 per side drawn from the three most recent King Crimson live albums plus 1 track from the forthcoming Live In Mexico set – recorded between 2015 and 2017, Uncertain Times ably demonstrates why Crimso’s current line-up is shaping up to be one of the most revered yet.
Painted by Francesca Sundsten, each side of the gatefold sleeve features one of the 4 pictures which form the main image of the 2018 tour poster.
