Ma'am I have been asking you for YEARS to provide proof of ownership. You are staling my family including my underage children. With no proof. I heard there were charges in California and they said NOOOOOOOO. So just crawl under the Identity theft rock.

Take this off too! Stealing things doesn't mean you own them! It just makes you a thief!

This is the one I have, has to be from either 1975 or 1976 since the blue rim palm tree label was introduced sometime in 1975 and King Crimon's catalog moved to Polydor in 1976 or 1977 with this album being reissued on Polydor in 1977.

There is also a version without MP3 download. Everything else is the same.

There is also a small mistake in the lyrics for the first line in the 4 verse. It is written "sun shine down", but he sings "star(s) shine down".

This KC album does not get enough praise. It's my personal favorite.

Highly under rated King Crimson LP in my opinion. I think the opening track is fantastic, the way its drifts off into a heavy string melody. All around a classic I think.
