“The Great Deceiver” is an edited collection of tour material 1973-1974. Almost five hours of 47 selections are included in a handsome box, with a 72-page booklet full of relevant information. Many of the cuts are 9-12 min. long, with 4 around a minute. This means long, extended plays giving David Cross, Robert Fripp, John Wetton, and Bill Bruford plenty of space to stretch out in. There is a fifteen-minute song “A Voyage To The Center of the Cosmos,” which will be sure to please. King Crimson’s strongest line-up, they were even better on stage and this box set is perhaps the best representation of that, making it an essential purchase for King Crimson fans.
