Title: Collector's Club: 1981.12.16 Tokyo

Limited live release from the art/prog rock icons' Collectors Club series. This set was recorded on December 16, 1981 in Tokyo, Japan. King Crimson formed in London in 1968. The band has undergone numerous formations throughout it's history of which 21 musicians have been members. Robert Fripp is the only consistent member of the group, and is considered the band's leader and driving force. The band has earned a large cult following. Developed from the unsuccessful trio Giles, Giles and Fripp, the band were seminal in the progressive rock genre in it's first five years with it's standard of instrumentation and complex song structures. King Crimson's debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King (1969), remains it's most successful and influential, with it's elements of jazz, classical, and experimental music. Their success increased following an opening act performance for The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, London, in 1969. The group reached a new creative peak with Larks' Tongues in Aspic (1973), Starless and Bible Black (1974), and Red (1974). Fripp has dismantled and reformed the band throughout the years. Their early '80s recordings introduced them to an entirely new audience.
