Fantastic Friday Track: King Crimson


From ArapahoeTim:

“In the Court of the Crimson King" is, in my opinion, the best of many great tracks on King Crimson's debut album by the same name. Michael Giles’s drumming on this track reminds me of the fantastic drumming of Mick Woodmansey on David Bowie’s album The Man Who Sold the World.

In the Court of the Crimson King

I would recommend King Crimson to any fans of Pink Floyd (Sid Barrett era) David Bowie (particularly the albums Man Who Sold the World and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars), and the debut album from the band Yes called The Fragile, to name a few.
