…..on Keith Emerson…..

… for me (in the 70s), through ELP’s versions of classical works I got exposed to music I’d never heard before. It’s great to compare orchestral versions of (for example) Pictures At An Exhibition with ELP’s great interpretation….

… classic rock at some of its best… his passing reminds us it’s all “TOUCH AND GO”…

A later version of the ELP classic Tarkus with Emersons own band. Still sounds great.

… and the 40th anniversary reunion concert…

peace and freedom Keith – RIP.
