Product Description:

Even by the frequently, if unintentionally, bizarre history of the UK's premier chart television show 'Top of the Pops' there are few less likely performances than that of a temporary line-up of King Crimson miming to the band's early 1970 single release 'Cat Food'. The band's first (& only) - isolated from album release - foray into the fickle world of the singles market did not, even with a TOTP appearance, produce a hit to dominate UK & worldwide charts but, along with it's non-album b side Groon, both tracks have achieved long term appeal with King Crimson fans & in KC set lists. A longer version of Cat Food would appear on the band's second studio album in May 1970, "In the Wake of Poeidon", a live version of Groon was a highlight of the Earthbound Live album while numerous studio takes were featured on both the 40th anniversary CD/DVD-A of "In the Wake of Poseidon" & the "Sailors' Tales" boxed set. Cat Food appeared in a powerful version on "The Great Deceiver" boxed set & made a lauded return to KC's repertoire in 2019's world tour.This 50th anniversary edition has been expanded to a four track release including the A & B sides of the original single, joined by a 2019 live recording, making it's first appearance on disc & a mix of the album version of Cat Food undertaken by David Singleton as part of the band's 50th anniversary digital release series - also making it's debut on disc.Released on 10" vinyl & CD in a picture sleeve replica of the original 7" art, 50 years on, Cat Food retains it's distinctive flavour & reputation as being
