One of the guys picks up his guitar and plays this perfectly as we stare at the stars overhead. It was so sad as the moment ended. Moments like that are what makes life special.
 
Cool post, S_D.
I too had the Trilogy t-shirt!

Sounded great on the FLAC feed.   Thanks much for the FLAC feed.   Listening from Logitech Media Server Community Edition 7.9.1 with RadioParadise FLAC Plugin.

 
True that!  This is FLACing awesome!  This is one of the first tunes I remember hearing as a kid, thanks to my dad, that sounded great to my young ears, and then eventually the meaning of the lyrics became clear to me.  I'm at a 9 and so close to going full 10 on it.  Such a great, clear sound that seems to match the lyrical content perfectly.  LONG LIVE RP!!

Perhaps there's a thing or two
I think of lying in bed
I shouldn't have said
. . . But there it is

Always loved those simple but poignant lyrics.

I agree, but I see it as a window not a door.  A window into what can be.  It is still there, we have just lost our way.

That's a pertinent observation, Stephen. I'd agree. I don't know but I get the feeling that it's almost all been done now.

I'm not getting older. It's the people around me that are getting younger.

Back in the day when I lived in a house full of guitars and had assorted friends whose homes were also full of guitars (*sigh* all those years ago) I was shown how to play this in about 10 minutes. "First play this little bend and riff like this, then these few simple to do chords go like this, then watch my fingers as I pluck"...easier done than said. It was a lotta fun and was no real task to learn at all. Very cool.

Started listening to ELP when I found out Lake went from King Crimson to ELP.

I wonder if I would have ever figured out that I really liked classical music if I had never listened to ELP.  I have an extensive classical library thanks to listening to toccatas and concertos from ELP.  

We sang a song they covered in church today, Jerusalem.

I think Emerson's classical training lead them to do stuff like Pictures at an Exhibition, Fanfare for a common man and other classical stuff.  

But Trilogy was probably there best overall album.

It is hard to believe both Emerson and Lake are gone.

 I read that Emerson offed himself out of perfectionism, that he feared that his fingers could no longer do his bidding in his old age and that his performances would be poor. I don't know how true or not that is, but it is a sad loss to music.
