At last: King Crimson in surround



The U.S. release dates are finally official for the first batch of KC on DVD-A (yes, DVD-Audio): Sept. 22 for Red, Oct. 13 for In the Court of the Crimson King, and Oct. 27 for Lizard. And as we reported some time ago, the surround mixes are indeed by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, with Crimson king Robert Fripp serving as executive producer.

The announcement came on KC's Web site, PT Stay tuned to the print edition of Sound & Vision for special expanded coverage of these releases, as well as other surround titles coming soon — including Porcupine Tree's new studio album, The Incident, due Sept. 22.
