King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King (Album Cover Art) - Framed Print - 16" x 16"
In the Court of the Crimson King is the debut studio album from the English rock band King Crimson, released in 1969.
The album is considered to be one of the first and most influential of the progressive rock genre, where the band largely departed from the blues influences that rock music was founded upon and combined elements of jazz, classical, and symphonic music.
Barry Godber, a computer programmer, painted the design for the album cover. Godber died in February 1970 from a heart attack, shortly after the album's release. It was his only album cover; the original painting is now owned by Robert Fripp.
The album cover is painted on a wall in the 1987 Troma Entertainment film Surf Nazis Must Die.
