Epitaph delivers on what it was like for the band in their year of 1969, when they were the hottest band going, and in context people were right to take notice.
Epitaph is an apt title, for despite being a recording of King Crimson at their very beginning, it was all over by the end of this tour.
Fripp's notes in the booklet are required reading for fans of Crimson, but also of ELP and Greg Lake, as it tells of all the influences that were pushing the band at the time, and relates Lake's famous meeting with Keith Emerson of The Nice which led to the formation of ELP.

Despite the problems that occur with live recordings, (and "Epitaph" has its' share of them) "Epitaph" is perhaps one of the most interesting releases King Crimson has ever released (in my humble opinion).
Although KC was a heavily bootlegged band and the early BBC recordings featured on Disc 1 of Epitaph have been circulating with varying degree of quality on the "boot" circuit, all of the recordings on this box set have been digitally enhanced.
And on that merit alone, I found well over 3/4ths of the entire Epitaph box set to be very poor; to the point I cannot make it halfway through a single listening of discs 2 through 4.
