About the Book
Since its original publication in 2010, much has happened in the court of King Crimson - such as the untimely death of John Wetton - and this updated 2023 edition of Musical Guide to Larks' Tongues in Aspic coincides with the 50th anniversary of the release of the album in 1973. It has been revised with a new Foreword, an interview with Richard Palmer-James and an Appendix overviewing the musical parameters of King Crimson MK III 'live'.
"This is a distinctively personal, affectionate but utterly convincing musical analysis and it is a ground-breaking piece of musicology." David Cross.
