Tongues In Aspic, from 1973, is widely regarded as one of the truly great King
With its raw tone, inspired improvisations and hard hitting odd-metered
rhythms, the album marked a radical departure for this most forward thinking of
groups and was the first to include Bill Bruford and John Wetton as band
This 40th Anniversary cd/dvd-a edition features new mixes by Steven Wilson
(Porcupine Tree) and Robert Fripp.
The cd features a new stereo album mix by Robert Fripp & Steven Wilson and also
features three extra Steven Wilson alt takes/mixes from the multi-track tapes.
The dvd-a contains a 5.1 DTS Mix and High Resolution Stereo mixes
Dvd-a players and some Blu-Ray players can additionally, access a 5.1 Advanced
Resolution (Lossless audio) mix.
The dvd-a features the original album mix, the new album mix, an album's worth
of alternate mixes by Steven Wilson (in High Resolution stereo) and over 30
