King Crimson - Earthbound

Earthbound is a live album by the band King Crimson, released in 1972 as a budget record shortly after the line-up which recorded it had broken up. It has been praised for its funky grooves (unusual for the band), and a blistering performance of "21st Century Schizoid Man", but widely criticized for its very poor sound quality, due to it being recorded onto cassette by live sound engineer Hunter MacDonald.
This is the firste King Crimson album that properly displays the name of the band and the title
The CD reissue does not significantly improve the overall sound quality of the album, due to its cassette origins.
The songs have great jazz Influences,and as you can see in Groon,it has a lot of Experimental Jazz Stuff going on live

Robert Fripp - electric guitar
Boz Burrell - bass guitar, vocals
Mel Collins - baritone saxophone, mellotron
