For this edition the tape transfers have been made from the (then recently rediscovered) original studio Master tapes, transferred direct & without any additional EQ by renowned mastering engineer Simon Heyworth. This combination of the first generation master tapes, improved technology for the playback/transfer of analogue tapes & high bit rate digital encoding of the music provides an edition that sounds as close as it is possible to get on a standard compact disc to the sound the musicians heard & approved at the time of the album's completion.
This CD master was approved by King Crimson founder Robert Fripp.
