Item Description
30th Anniversary Edition - The lineup that recorded "Islands" was the only incarnation of King Crimson to look towards rock’s traditional Blues origins for influence. The one studio album they left behind is, nonetheless, a fine example of the many disparate influences that informed the 1971 King Crimson. The album also marks the final appearance of Peter Sinfield as a member. For future lineups, Robert Fripp would be the sole surviving founder member of King Crimson. At first glance – with a similarly extended lineup, pieces such as the opening ‘Formentera Lady’, ‘Prelude’ & title track "Islands" & the first appearance of strings, King Crimson’s 4th studio album seemed likely to expand upon the nature of "Lizard", the album that had preceded it in 1970. But the presence of a new rhythm section, (Boz Burrell & Ian Wallace), & the fact that the core lineup was performing again as a live band, helped ensure "Islands" sounded, at least in part, more like the product of a gigging rock band than that of a purely studio based recording group. Robert Fripp: guitar & mellotron Mel Collins: saxes & flute Boz Burrell: bass & vocals Ian Wallace: drums Peter Sinfield: words with Keith Tippett: Piano Paulina Lucas – soprano Robin Miller: oboe Mark Charig: cornet Harry Miller: string bass
