In the Court of the Crimson King is the debut studio album by the British rock group King Crimson.
The album reached number five on the British charts, and is certified gold in the United States, where it reached #28 on the Billboard 200. The album is generally viewed as one of the strongest of the progressive rock genre, where King Crimson largely stripped away the blues-based foundations of rock music and mixed together jazz and classical symphonic elements. In his 1997 book Rocking the Classics, critic and musicologist Edward Macan notes that In the Court of the Crimson King “may be the most influential progressive rock album ever released”. The Who’s Pete Townshend was quoted as calling the album “an uncanny masterpiece”. In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album came fourth in its list of “40 Cosmic Rock Albums”. The album was named as one of Classic Rock magazine’s “50 Albums That Built Prog Rock”

The Labels:
These are the Polydor labels Any spidering can barely be seen angled to the light and there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. This has obviously only had very minimal play in my opinion.
