Reviews of the King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King (An Observation By King Crimson) (3):
Scoreboard Bleeding
Typical NZ pressing of the era; really nice SQ and packaging. I've recently play graded my copy and it sounds like it should, with very little noise and excellent dynamics. My only criticism is that it's maybe a little bright, but that's VERY subjective.
Pruster
If anyone has a spare copy of the sleeve of this issue please sell it to me! My mint condition copy of the vertigo vinyl has the wrong sleeve. Thanks!
WinDImmortaL
Hi there, I have a copy of this version. Would you be interested in buying the album as a whole?Cheers
