    On tv there was an Emerson Lake & Palmer concert of 1971, i tried to watch it, it's not the first time, i got bored after 15 minutes of solos.

    I was never into progressive really but i enjoy King Krimson, to me they were on another level.

    Do you like ELP ?

    I am sure it was a typo, but I like ELO and ELP exactly the same...

    For about two songs- tops. Same for Steely Dan.

    Two songs, and I'm out.

    Add Manheim Steamroller to that list with the Holidays coming...

    ELP? Gave up in 1971. Maybe I'll try again 50 years later, in 2021.

    That's it, not even a shadow of it, it was really too much, how can a normal man stand 10 minutes of drum solo ?:eek::eek::eek:

    Yes....I did like them.....A LOT. I was a big fan of almost anyone "progressive".....but some of it doesn't hold up very well today. ( :( ) I liked Greg Lake for being the voice of King Crimson, Carl Palmer for having drummed for Arthur Brown, and Keith Emerson for, well, his awesome playing. I saw them live in the early seventies, and it was a great show. That said, much of it now sounds pretentious and bombastic. The best LP I have from that era (and still listen to today) is MacDonald and Giles.....two other alumni from the original King Crimson.

    Also worth a listen....on youtube there are live videos of 21st Century Schizoid Man.....a band comprised of former King Crimson and MacD and Giles, doing their old (and best) songs.

    Yes to Yes, as well as Genesis, Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Atomic Rooster, and (especially) Gentle Giant.

    I've always been curios about the 70's progressive scene but it never cought me really, also in Italy there was a good scene and there are a lot of fans over here, the only band that i listen to is the Crimson....

    I didn't enjoy everything they did but really enjoyed some. A good starter is Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends which chronicles the '74 tour I almost got to see. "KarnEvil 9," "Aquatarkus," and "Still You Turn Me On" are great. Works contains some really good stuff. The summer of, I think, '77, I was working at the college I went to and staying in a little house nearby with the rest of the guys on the crew. I would get up every morning, put on "Fanfare for the Common Man" (their version of Copeland's work by the same name, which Copeland approved), and took my morning shower. It starts off melodic and ends up raucous. It was a great way to wake up!

    But, frankly, I haven't found anything by them on YouTube that I much enjoyed and these days their music is pretty much automatic chick repellent.
