I was 17 then. I am now 60. Yet I remember it like it was yesterday. What an awesome day it was. And oh what a lucky man I am to have been there! I was by the speaker tower to the left of center stage looking in. I get goose bumps just thinking of the night sky filled with flying water jugs!!! LOL!

I'd love to see Kanye sit and play and sing...can't do it because he can't ply an instrument. He's better while casually chewing gum than Kanye and all these R&B hacks are. Kanye can't even sing and chew gum, can't even sing period. This guy can chew gum, sing and play guitar. We need more true musicians, like Aaron Lewis, not all this Kanye crap.

By the time of CJ in 1974 ELP were briefly the top concert act in the world, bigger than Zeppelin for a brief time. They were rich and at the top of their game as this video of Greg shows. After this show they would spend 3 years sitting it out and then would waste it all on the 1977 Orchestral Tour. They would never recover, but they were one of the best live acts around for this time. Listen to any ELP record and then realise Lake sang it all, wrote all the lyrics, and played all guitars.

Juli Greenspan
Juli Greenspan 2 months ago

Considering he was 12 years old at the time he wrote this, I don't think Greg was overly concerned about getting all the historic facts correct. He was just writing his first song about a childhood fantasy. Later on he did though. He did a lot of research for the song Pirates from what I understand.

Simply put: Just an amazing, deep song. We lost our father 2 weeks ago at a young age, and one of the things he left us all was this song. Had never heard it before until he passed and we got his "funeral" CD out he had made. Absolutely amazing song.

This concert tho seen on TV meant a lot to me. It was like a friend I returned too every night. Thank you for the you tube vodeo

Much as the SQUEEK noises resulting from sliding the fingers along a wound guitar string are an integral part of the total sound of a guitar, (many bristle at hearing that sound) the sound of the pick brushing the strings is also part of the whole of a guitars sound as well

Greg Lake had a great voice in 1974. He was phenomenal in his solo performance of "Lucky Man". He had a great vocal range when he was young. This tune wil go on in infamy.

A beautiful live version by Greg Lake in 1974. Emerson, Lake, and Palmer were phenomenal. A trio of talent equivalent of "Cream". But much better vocals.

I can't even walk and chew gum at the same time, to coin a phrase. This could be the #1 under-exposed song today.
