3 stars Bought this when I was about 14 (1974) as I wanted everything KC had out on vinyl. I didn't understand the album at the time and I guess I'm still unsure. I certainly didn't like Earthbound and for 20 years it sat gathering dust along with USA whilst I wore out the grooves on the studio albums. 20 years on and I resurected Earthbound and found to my joy some delights, the sound quality is dire in places and poor the rest of the time, but then you already know that. 3 stars primarily for Peoria and Earthbond both of which still blow me away! Groon has too many farts and squeaks to provide any meaningful message and appears to be a filler. 21st Century Schizoid Man is excellent and Boz Burrell adds rather than detracts. Yes I guess you could argue its for completists but there are too many golden nuggets in there to be ignored.
