Release Date:08/21/2015;Notes:Purple Pyramid Records will be releasing legendary Greg Lake's live album from the Hammersmith Odeon in London, November 5, 1981, featuring guitar hero Gary Moore on vinyl! The concert recording features ELP and King Crimson classic tracks such as "Lucky Man", "Karn Evil 9", "21st Century Schizoid Man" and "In The Court of The Crimson King", as well as songs from his critically acclaimed first solo album from 1981. As a founding member of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Greg Lake has been a major force in music for over 40 years. He has long been considered a legendary voice and musical powerhouse whose impact changed the landscape of rock and roll. Many simply refer to him as "The Voice". It was not an extravagant performance - no lasers, no levitating keyboards, no priceless Persian carpets. The myths and legends that surrounded ELP when they toured were all firmly locked away. The Greg Lake Band toured like a band, and on stage they simply took up their positions and played. Brilliantly. That last date on the tour is where this disc was recorded, in front of 2, 000 fans who now had every note of Greg's new album memorized, and the rest of the set firmly entrenched in their DNA: the snatch of "Karn Evil 9" that eased out of the opening "Fanfare" "Love You Too Much, " the song Lake co-wrote with Dylan in what remains another of the tantalizing collaborations of the age "Retribution Drive" and "The Lie" from Greg Lake. "21st Century Schizoid Man" and "The Court Of The Crimson King, " from Lake's stint with King Crimson, wrapped up the evening in positively rhapsodic fashion, and, finally, "C'est La Vie, " from ELP's Works.
