Welcome Back My Friends to the Show that Never Ends – Ladies and Gentlemen Emerson Lake and Palmer (1974)
I listened to this album constantly and wore out three copies.
After filling up on The Beatles, Stones and Zeppelin I discovered progressive rock.
No band did it quite like ELP and something about how their music complimented the lyrics and vice versa spoke to me.
Progressive rock is all about the imagery of the lyrics being brought to life by the music and I “got it.”
I also play drums and Carl Palmer was, and still is, one of may favorite drummers.
The drum solo on this record is incredible.
