Court Of Crimson King Lyrics

The 2009 remix of In The Court Of The Crimson King sounds better than ever, but for old time's sake it's great to also have high definition (PCM and DVD-Audio) versions of the original stereo mix. The 'alternative' versions are worthy bonuses - and it's a real treat to. The courtiers exert pressure on the man who would be king through public statements, and running to the town criers, the media to publish their ideas. In the court of the crimson king.

37 second sample from King Crimson's 'The Court of the Crimson King,' demonstrating the sound of the first incarnation of the band, with its classically-influenced style and use of the Mellotron instrument.
