Alternately trippy and thunderous, this 1974 LP (featuring Fripp, Bruford and
Wetton) hit the U.S. charts almost a year to the day after Larks'
Tongues in Aspic did. The Great Deceiver; Lament; The Night Watch; Trio
this experimental gem managed to outdo the prog classic that preceded
it; this reissue is full of alternate mixes and other special treats.
The CD features a new stereo mix plus bonus tracks including the
ultra-rare (performed once only) Guts on My Side . The DVD-Audio disc
has the original and new mixes plus a 5.1 surround mix, 5.1 Lossless
audio and stereo mixes, video footage of Easy Money and an improv from
NY's Central Park ('73), audio extras including live cuts and radio
edits and more!

They may be rolling out slower than fans would like, but given the superlative work
that Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson has been doing to bring the
decades-old King Crimson catalog into the 21st century—creating vibrant
new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes, with Crimson
co-founder/guitarist Robert Fripp's direct involvement and/or
approval—he can be forgiven for taking the extra time to get them just
right. So far, Wilson has managed to respect the original material,
while creating more three-dimensional audio landscapes and a stunning
degree of transparency that has made the entire series—but, in
particular, 1970's Lizard (DGMLive, 2009) and 1971's Islands (DGMLive,
2010)—sound the way they always should have. Starless and Bible Black is
another outstanding addition to the 40th Anniversary Series, with
previously unheard depth and clarity, and a whack of bonus material that
makes it the undisputable definitive edition.

By 1973, Fripp had been through more personnel than most, finally
settling in on an incarnation that would remain stable longer than any
other Crimson to date. After the paradigm shift of that year's Larks
Tongues in Aspic (Island), in addition to being the most aggressively
guitar-heavy Crimson yet, this lineup introduced the new textures of
David Cross' violin and viola, and the rhythm section to end all rhythm
sections, with thundering bassist John Wetton and drummer Bill Bruford,
who'd left fellow art-rockers {Yes}} on the cusp of massive mainstream
success, to play with the more improv-heavy (and just plain heavy)
Crimson. Jamie Muir was gone, but Bruford, in addition to his remarkable
ability for polyrhythmic complexity and an instantly recognizable
sound, had learned much from the departed percussionist who had moved to
a monastery in the Scottish Highlands. If guitarist John McLaughlin's
Mahavishnu Orchestra approached the power of rock from the context of
jazz's improvisational freedom, this version of Crimson came at it from
the flip side.

Tracks such as the opening "The Great Deceiver" and "Lament" rock harder
than anything Crimson had done before, while the mellotron-heavy "The
Night Watch" made clear there were still trace elements of the symphonic
group that shook the world in 1969 with In the Court of the Crimson
King (DGMLive, reissued 2009). What makes SABB the next logical step
from LTIA is its reliance on free improv as a context for songwriting.
Crimson shows always weighed heavily on extemporization, but here, five
of the album's tracks were actually recorded in concert, then taken back
to the studio for additional overdubs and tweaks—and, in the case of
"The Mincer," lyrics as well.

But the real achievement and greatest success of SABB is "Fracture," Fripp's
episodic, 11-minute whirlwind of rapid-fire whole-tone guitar
gymnastics, bolstered by Wetton's overdriven
triceratops-meets-tyrannosaurus rex attack and Bruford's combination of
powerful kit work and newfound expressiveness on percussion. Back in the
day, it was the tune guitarists aspired to play but most couldn't, and
Wilson's mix—as with this entire reissue—makes it cleaner, clearer and,
well, heavier than it's ever sounded before.

The wealth of bonus tracks on the CD and DVD—most available elsewhere on
King Crimson Collector Club releases—include two songs that never made
it to a commercial record: the phonetics-challenged "Dr. Diamond," first
released on The Great Deceiver (DGMLive, 1992) box set; and the more
flat-out rocking "Guts on My Side," previously only available on a KCCC
audience recording from Udine Italy. Neither song stands up to the
material around it—and that includes the improv tracks from the original
SABB, among them the pastoral "Trio," the funky "We'll Let You Know"
and the quietly angular "The Mincer." But for those who don't already
have those releases, they create—along with other bonus live material on
the DVD that includes the original improvs that led to SABB's finished
tracks, with the music that bookends them as well—a more complete and
concise picture of where this group was, in 1973-74.

Even better—albeit frustrating in its relative brevity—is the video
footage from Crimson's June, 1973 Central Park Appearance—LTIA's "Easy
Money" and the improv, "Fragged Dusty Wall Carpert," which give
Crimheads old enough to have been there a nice slice of nostalgia and,
for those who aren't, the opportunity to witness the group in its sheer
unbridled power. Now, if only there'd been some video footage of the
group performing "Fracture."

But even without a video performance of "Fracture," Starless and Bible
Black (40th Anniversary Series) continues the winning combination of
Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp, and their reinvigoration of the Crimson
catalog—an unbroken winning streak of definitive editions that are only
predictable, at this point, in their documentary completeness and
stunning sonic clarity.
