King Crimson / Earthbound deluxe
King Crimson‘s 1972 live album Earthbound will be reissued in November as a CD+DVD deluxe edition, with an interesting array of content.
Full details have yet to be confirmed, but the CD element will feature an expanded 12-track version of the original 5-track album.
The DVD will include this same expanded edition in hi-res stereo (24/96) and a quadraphonic mix of the 1972 Summit Studios (in Denver, Colorado) performance. This is apparently the only surviving multi-track from that tour. A hi-res stereo is also included.
Additionally, the album length Schizoid Men sequence of edits of 21st Century Schizoid Men taken from the Ladies of The Road live album, and a transfer of the original vinyl album.
This reissue comes in a slipcased double digipak and features notes by Sid Smith along with rare photos and archive material.
Earthbound is reissued on 3 November 2017.
