Boz Burrell died on 21st Sep. 2006... when i was a teenager, i really loved King Crimson and Robert Fripp... but one day, i found Robert Fripp was really "great deciever"!!! from that period i hate Fripp's works, so then i sold all my King Crimson and Fripp's records and many bootlegs, except for 1st album and this "Earthbound" records... because King Crimson's 1st album is not Fripp's work, it's Ian McDonald's work for me... also his boring guitar work is not so featured on their 1st album yet... so it's a good way for me!! and Earthbound, i read a book Fripp didn't like this live album... of course i understood his mind easily, other members play R&B without Fripp!! i can listen to Fripp's perplexity so bad blues guitar!!! hahaha...!! he can't play Blues even he is called the great rock guitarist!! ha!! what the fake rock guitarist is!!
anyway this live album gave me a big influence to me when i was a high-school boy. when i listen to 1st track "21st Century Schizoid Man", i got a big shock! what the so heavy sound is!!! indeed, what is called the recording quality is kind of bad... maybe it was recorded by a portable tape-recorder... but it's so great sound quarity as the rock music!! if you have listened to "21st Century Schizoid Man" live version of their another live album "U.S.A.", you can understand what i say... "U.S.A." version is like a cheap heavy metal sounds even they live recorded by good recording systems! so when i discovered this album, i started to record my music by over-gain! if you've listened to my early works around 1980, you can find same atmosphere from some tracks...
and i really like this line-up, Boz sings very blusy by his beautiful voice, Ian Wallace's drumming is so heavy, Mel Collins plays the saxophone so mellow and Pete Sinfield puts so nice effects!! i prefer this line-up and the original line-up both to any other line-ups of King Crimson's history!! and this line-up's performance is the craziest in all of King Crison's history!!
when i released AMT & TMP U.F.O.'s "Electric Heavyland" from Alien8 Recording, i asked the designer of the label to make the artwork as copying of Earthbound! because the sound quarity is so bad and so heavy...
Fripp still keeps the name "King Crimson" for his recently group now... but it's already not King Crimson for me since 1981... (1981 King Crimson had another name "Discipline", but Fripp changed the name to King Crimson for getting more money!) but i'm not interested in another King Crimoson "21st Century Schizoid Band" too, even Ian McDonald and many good musicians of ex. King rimson play... why do they have to play only their old songs? it's a tragedy for musicians, especially Ian McDonald is a gifted musician... he chose the suicidal way as musician...
while an ungifted musician Fripp's recently King Crimson play so boring at first sight new style sound that is actually remake of past King Crimson's works... sadly this is a proof that Fripp is an ungifted musician...
anyway King Crimson is already dead for me...
