2 stars This CD is mainly a compilation of diferent "21st Century Schizoid Man" version played by different line ups between 1969 and 1974. The original version from the ITCOKC, and the edit version that already appeared in some KING CRIMSON compilations. The last 69 song is a live version from the "Epitaph" boxset. Next is the version from the some years deleted LP "Earthbound" (with the same poor sound quality). Finally, the 1974 version, the same that appears in "Live in Asbury Park" (released originally with some Eddie Jobson overdubs in the LP "U.S.A."), in the remastered edition and without overdubs.

Is it a great record? Not really, provided that the material is well known for King Crimson lovers, so they won´t find anything new in it. And for newcomers to the band, there are much better records to satar with. Just for collectors.
