    Well, I got the flash drive from my friend. He gave me everything that he had of KC:

    - In the Court of the...
    - In the Wake of Poseidon
    - Discipline
    - Beat
    - Three of a perfect Pair
    - Absent Lovers
    - Thrak.

    I will start listening to them in the next day or so.

    Wow, your friend missed all of KC's mid-70s albums. At the very least, Larks' Tongues and Red are essential. FWIW, I don't care much for Beat or Three of a Perfect Pair. Absent Lovers is one of their (many, many) live albums. It's a good one, though. Certainly one of the best documents of the 80s incarnation of the band.

    Unless you have deep pockets or you're willing to hold up liquor stores and convenient marts do your best to avoid becoming one of those "must-have-everything-ever-released" types of KC collector - as you will rue the day you ever asked the question...

    I'm a casual fan and don't like everything they've done (I'm not a big fan of Larks Tongue, if I'm honest and a few of the later releases leave me cold) however when they're good they're very good. I had the privilege of seeing them live in 1982, in Stuttgart (that was a great day festival), and they blew me away. This is my favourite track by them. Certainly not typical but achingly beautiful.

    I'm never one of those people who have to have everything ever released by anyone. Often I will collect every studio album by a band or artist, but most Live albums I can live without. There are those classic Live albums that sometimes define a band's experience, but they are rare.

    That’s gorgeous! I’ve never heard it before. Pity it’s so short. I saw them in Edinburgh a few years ago (see Post 8). Took me a day or so to ‘come down’. Experience of a lifetime.

    I'm one of those types, and I have all those KC box sets. They're truly glorious, and I applaud whomever sacrificed the time and effort to put them together. They're all chock-full of great content, especially the live material and the multi-channel blu-rays.
