excerpts from “Full Frontal Fripp,” an interview conducted by Ihor Slabicky at the New York offices of Atlantic Records on October 18, 1974, and published in the January/February 1982 Trouser Press Collectors’ Magazine
IS: I thought that the first album, An Observation, was excellent and from there it went down a little until you reached Islands, which was very different, and then you had Earthbound, which showed what, maybe, American touring was like, but then…
RF: Earthbound wasn’t King Crimson.
IS: I think in a way it was because it sounds like an awful bootleg.
RF: It’s King Crimson’s own bootleg.
IS: I think what the album stands for…
RF: The album was released to show why the band broke up.
It seems that Fripp was talking about the qulaity of the recording.
Whose bootleg is it?
"It’s King Crimson’s own bootleg."
