2 stars I can say nothing new: terrible sound quality destroyed that record from KC pre-72 era.

When I'm telling TERRIBLE, it doesn't means, that sound is plain, or bad mixed, or too rounded, as often happens, when we're speaking about recording quality of other albums. NO! The quality is terrible in direct sense, sound was recorded ot portative recorder (of that time) and just put on the disc as it is.

It's a mainly reason, why it's almost not possible to speak about album's music: what you are hearing there remains sound, recorded from radio from 70-th.

For a long it was very limited possibility to listen live sound of KC from early years. After USA album, "Earthbound" missed that exclusivity. And now, when you can choose perfect "The Great Deceiver"from the same era, only crazy KC-maniac could be interested in "Earthbound".
