12th Release in King Crimson's Superlative 40th Anniversary Series (CD + DVD-A) featuring 2016 Stereo/5.1 Surround Mixes by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp, Bonus Tracks & Sid Smith Sleeve Notes!
Having released two albums in a nine month period between October 1981 and July 1982, Three of a Perfect Pair served as the final part of King Crimson's recorded trilogy that begun with Discipline and Beat. Originally released in April 1984, from the pointillist minimalism of the title track through to the urgent rush of "Sleepless" and the album's closer "Larks' Tongues in Aspic III" - the only reference to the 1970s incarnations of the band – Crimson's distinctive mixture of rock, electronica, funk and pure pop songs, ensured the group's status as one of the most interesting and innovative bands of the decade.
Released as part of the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series, the CD features a new stereo mix by Steven Wilson and Robert Fripp, including several bonus tracks, while the DVD-A features a 5.1 mix of the album and high resolution of both the original and new stereo mixes. The DVDA also includes the bonus tracks from the 30th anniversary CD and the promo film for "Sleepless."
