Earthbound 50th Anniversary edition

Earthbound, originally released in 1972, was one of the earliest (if not the first) "official bootleg" released by a major rock band, consisting of a series of deliberately lo-fi live recordings of King Crimson's Islands era line-up on tour in the USA. When issued, because of its mid-price, it was excluded from the main album charts in the UK but topped the mid-price charts rubbing shoulders with Jim Reeves and Mantovani. Atlantic in the USA didn’t even bother to release it. By then, the band had broken up and the label had already been alerted to the likelihood of a new King Crimson line-up promised for later in the year. Like the later live album, USA, Earthbound remained deleted on vinyl and unreleased on CD until both were finally released in 2002 on CD. An expanded CD/DVD edition appeared in 2017 alongside the Sailors' Tales boxed set. Ironically this non-availability in the peak CD era served to enhance interest in the album while DGM's live releases made fans aware that there was a larger story to be told of this line-up's history.

When Robert Fripp was asked to guest on the second Grinderman project, Nick Cave noted: "I wanted to work with Robert Fripp because he has done some of the most uniquely unsettling guitar work I have ever heard along with some of the most delicate and finessed" explained Cave. "I grew up listening to a lot of the King Crimson stuff. The vinyl copy of the phenomenal live album Earthbound, is one of my most treasured possessions."

• Earthbound - is the final remaining release of the original King Crimson vinyl albums series.

• The album has been cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering.

• Continues the highly collectable King Crimson series.

• Much requested reissue by fans of the band
