This three CD set draws together a collection of studio and live recordings of King Crimson as a double duo.

Released at the end of 2002, "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With" features mostly short tracks. This song-centered mini-album acted as an appetiser for "The Power To Believe" (2003) in much the same way that the mini-album "VROOOM" preceded and anticipated "THRAK" in the mid-1990s.

Recorded a year earlier, "Level Five" (2001) was issued as a tour CD and only available to concert attendees, with subsequent limited editions available from the band's website and in Japan before being released more widely in 2008.

With "The Power To Believe" released and greeted enthusiastically by fans and critics alike, King Crimson spent much of the next four months of 2003 performing the material. One of the Japanese concerts was filmed and recorded for DVD release. Japanese fans demanded a live CD release of the DVD concert recording and the stereo audio mix of the material was issued exclusively for that market as "EleKtriK", prior to a wider release.
