Alrighty, i'll try and be thorough:KING CRIMSON:1969 - In the Court of the Crimson King
In the Court of the Crimson King is the 1969 debut album by the British progressive rock group King Crimson. The album reached No. 5 on the British charts, and is certified gold in the United States.
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 No. 4 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".
Has been had quite a few releases on CD, vinyl and DVDA. Some notable pressings and editions:
Korean Pressing Definitive Edition Remaster 1989
Pink Island Vinyl
30th Anniversary edition
40th anniversary edition
My personal favourite is the 40th Anniversary, and I don't think many people will be opposed to me calling it the best sounding edition.
It was done by Steven Wilson and Frippsicles at SWHQ.
Some youtube links from no defined edition (and weren't hand picked):21st Century Schizoid ManEpitaphIn the Court of the Crimson King
There was once a clayanimation clip with epitaph in the background, which some youtuber strung together. But I can't find it. It was quite nice.1974 - Red
Red is a 1974 album by progressive rock group King Crimson.
It was their last studio recording of the 1970s and the last before the lead member Robert Fripp temporarily disbanded the group.
The title track was ranked #87 in the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs list of Rolling Stone.
Same deal with In the Court... Has been released on DVDA, Vinyl and CD:
Any major first pressing
This album has some of my favourite guitar work by Fripp. Everyone's performance on this album is amazing, and mesmerized me for weeks after I first heard it. It also goes to show just how powerful a three piece band can sound (or power-trio, whatever you prefer).

I'll flesh this out later on. Let me know what pressings/editions you think are worth noting. Or any information you'd like added.
I'd like to do this for quite a few bands.
