The release of King Crimson’s seminal 1974 album Red continues the overhaul of the
progressive rock band’s catalog that also — so far anyway — includes
their debut album In The Court Of The Crimson King and Lizard. As was
the case with those two albums, the remastering of this album was
overseen by Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson, along with founding member
Robert Fripp. Wilson was a great choice for this task for a couple of
reasons. He’s a longtime fan, and with Porcupine Tree and his other many
projects, he also definitely has the necessary prog-rock credentials.

But beyond that, Wilson understands the possibilities of recording in the lossless
surround sound format better than just about anybody. His remastering
job here literally places you in the center of the room, particularly on
the surround mixes for the DVD. This is as close to actually being
there as it gets, folks.

By the time King Crimson originally released Red, they were essentially
reduced down to the power-trio of Fripp on guitar and mellotron, John
Wetton on bass and vocals, and Bill Bruford — who left the then-mega
successful Yes to join up — on drums. Guest musicians like Mel Collins
on soprano saxophone, Ian MacDonald on alto, and David Cross also make

What makes Red really stand out from previous King Crimson albums like
In The Court Of The Crimson King though, is the way that the three core
members create such a big noise. The fantasy inspired lyrics and
symphonic sweep of their previous work had by this time been largely
replaced by a more frenetic type of playing. On Red, King Crimson draw
as much from heavy metal and a sort of pre-punk-rock racket as they do
from prog and fusion-based jazz.

It’s as though the smaller lineup — and the deceptively smaller (but no
less intricate) arrangements of the songs — had finally freed these guys
up to stretch themselves that much further musically. The result is
music that is often difficult and occasionally even cacophonous
listening — especially given the time it was recorded.

But for tech-purists and musician types, Red was, and is still now
something of a wet dream. You can still hear its influence today in
bands as diverse as Primus, Tool, and Wilson’s own Porcupine Tree. If
there is such an animal as jazz-punk-metal, King Crimson pretty much
invented it on this album.

So what we have on this deluxe edition is a double-disc, featuring the
entire album in both CD and the glorious sounding surround sound you get
with the DVD. The latter of which is clearly the main event.

You can hear the difference immediately as Fripp’s discordant fuzzed-out
guitar leaps out of the speakers on the title track, followed in short
order by Wetton’s bass and Bruford’s almost inhuman drumming. The raw
power of that track has never sounded better than it does here, and is
reason alone to get this immediately. This is power-trio playing at its
finest and most frenetic, and Wilson’s mix puts you right in the center
of it.

The middle tracks of this album — which to me always seemed to be the lesser ones — also take on new life with the surround mix.

I still think “One More Red Nightmare” would have worked better as an
instrumental, but even Wetton’s vocal makes more sense in the remixed
version. Fripp’s discordant guitars, Bruford’s intricate off-signature
drumming, and especially Mel Collins’ blaring soprano saxophone still
create a eerily irresistible noise.

“Providence” is still just a bit meandering for my tastes, but again the
surround sound here adds a new dimension, which this time comes in the
form of the separation. Wetton’s bass creates a newly thunderous boom,
which Fripp’s guitar and David Cross’ violin slices through like butter.
As for Bruford, he is just an absolute monster on the drums here.

The closest Crimson gets to the symphonic sweep of old comes on the
album-closer “Starless,” which remains one of the all-time great
prog-rock epics.

The mellotron intro sounds as gorgeous as ever — did I mention I really
miss that instrument? — and Collins’ soprano sax gives it that perfect
little extra kick. Again, Wilson’s surround mix brings everything out
that much more clearly. The way this song transitions from its
melancholic beginning to Wetton’s power bass chords, Fripp’s droning
guitar, and finally to the full-on fusion freakout at the end is
mesmerizing. “Starless” has never sounded better than it does here.

The DVD also includes rare video of four songs recorded for French TV.
As is often the case with video from this time period, there’s the usual
goofy psychedelic visual effects to put up with. But the performances
are keepers, particularly “Larks Tongue In Aspic: Part II” and

Kudos to Steven Wilson for a fine job on these King Crimson remasters. I
can’t wait to hear what he does by the time he gets to the eighties
albums with Adrian Belew like Discipline and Beat.
