Label: Island Records (UK), Atlantic Records (USA)

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. The CD reissue does not significantly improve the overall sound quality of the album, due to its cassette origins.
