On this compilation, the version of "I Talk To The Wind", recorded at 93A Brondesbury Road, London, England, UK, July 1968; it differs from the version released on "In The Court Of The Crimson King”. The most notable difference is in the vocals, which are sung by Judy Dyble (Fairport Convention) rather than Greg Lake. This version is also available on The Brondesbury Tapes (1968) under the name of Giles, Giles and Fripp.

A personal selection by Robert Fripp.

1978 reissue according to legal deposit at BNF.
A 20 page booklet included.

King Crimson

Profile :

King Crimson are an English progressive rock band formed in London in 1968. They have exerted a strong influence both on the early 1970s progressive rock movement and on more recent rock and experimental artists. Although the band has consistently undergone changes in personnel throughout its history, guitarist and primary composer Robert Fripp, the only remaining founding member, has acted as a driving creative force. Though he is often seen as the band’s leader, Fripp himself tends to shun this label.
