Ladies of the Road by King Crimson


Ladies of the Road is a live album (2-CD set) by the band King Crimson, released in 2002 and reissued in Japan in 2008. It is named after a song on the Islands album.

The first disc consists of live recordings performed by the band's second active lineup (Robert Fripp, Boz Burrell, Mel Collins, Ian Wallace, Peter Sinfield) recorded in 1971 and 1972. The second disc consists of excerpts from performances of the song "21st Century Schizoid Man" recorded at the same time - these have been edited together to form a single 46-plus minute extended version of the song.

The album is compiled in part from King Crimson Collectors' Club albums - limited release live recordings of concert performances, studio sessions and radio sessions.
