King Crimson will continue their 50th-anniversary celebration this year with a new set devoted to the album that started it all: 1969's landmark debut In the Court of the Crimson King.

The collection includes three CDs with new stereo mixes plus a Blu-Ray featuring 5.1 surround sound mixed by Steven Wilson and approved by Crimson leader Robert Fripp.

The set also includes additional material alongside the classic album, including the duo version of "I Talk to the Wind," an alternate edition of the LP featuring different takes and mixes, instrumentals, the original 1969 mix of the LP and the A- and B-sides of "The Court of the Crimson King" single.

The box set arrives on Oct. 25; a two-LP edition of In the Court of the Crimson King will be released a week earlier, on Oct. 18.

You can see the track listing below.

The album caps a golden-anniversary year for the band. In addition to a new documentary and a series of archival releases, King Crimson are hitting the road for 50 dates that started in June and make their way across the planet through October. U.S. shows start in Toronto this weekend, with other shows planned in Boston, New York and Cleveland. You can see the full tour schedule at the band's website.

King Crimson have also been dusting off rare performances from its archives weekly that are available to listen to on YouTube and for download online. The latest addition is a previously unreleased alternate mix of fan favorite "Catfood," which you can listen to below.
