Earthbound is a live album by King Crimson.
It was recorded in the USA in February & March 1972.
King Crimson at this stage were:
- Boz Burrell – vocals and bass
- Robert Fripp – lead guitar
- Mel Collins – saxophones, mellotron
- Ian Wallace – drums
This isn’t one of the legendary versions of the band but they also recorded the better known live album Ladies Of The Road.

Mentions of dodgy sound quality always make me want to hear it before committing to buy. This is hard to do for King Crimson albums so I’d veer towards Ladies Of The Road first.
