About this hidden track
(Title Unknown) is a hidden song by King Crimson from their album Islands.
The track consists of guitarist Robert Fripp giving instructions to an instrumental ensemble as they tune their instruments.
Released in 1971, Islands is the fourth studio album by the British progressive rock band King Crimson. The album features the band’s signature sound of complex time signatures, dissonant guitar and bass lines, and haunting melodies. Unlike their previous albums, “Islands” has a more jazz-influenced sound, incorporating saxophones, flutes, and mellotrons in addition to the usual rock instrumentation.
Islands features a mix of longer and shorter tracks, with “The Letters” and “Sailor’s Tale” standing out as notable tracks. “The Letters” features a beautiful and haunting vocal performance by Boz Burrell, while “Sailor’s Tale” is a fast-paced instrumental track that showcases the band’s technical prowess.
Islands is often regarded as one of King Crimson’s more experimental and eclectic albums, and while it may not be as well-known as some of their other works, it remains a classic of the progressive rock genre.
