Not to be nitpicky but since there are three options the one choice should be "none" not "neither." Neither implies two. Wink

Lothlorien. Argent is a master of the Hammond, though for this poll, I vote Greenslade.


I do like the early Argent stuff (Ring of Hands is solid) and the first 2 Greenslade are good...I even listen to the last 2 , but overall Mann has contributed more in several styles and areas over the years.
Having said that ,  Argent and Greenslade are more talented on the keys as far as technical ability.
   
For me, Solar Fire is almost brilliant - Mann’s talent really works here (for me). I’ve gad several MMEB LP’s over the years, but i refuse to part with Solar Fire. If we’re talking ‘mainstream’, then Mann is a force to be reckoned with. With Argent (Rod himself, and the band entity) Circus takes the cake for me. And Greenslade, well, even Time And Tide means a lot to me, but he did have the benefit of having an equally talented player in Dave Lawson.

^ Highlight of Greenslade’s entire career !!
(2nd comes that wah’d solo on Cactus Choir)
Mann is pretty good, though barely on my radar of Keyboard greats
Argent is quite superb.

The Hammond solo on "drum folk" is one of the finest doom laden solos ever in prog history....I defy anybody to listen to the emotion that Greenslade manages to convey and not recognise his mastery of sad Hammond music. The mellotron that precedes it is also genius.....

Also I would like to chuck in that Mann's use of the cute bit of music (Chopsticks I believe) on Blinded By The Light is sheer genius!
Greenslade is very good certainly but I struggle to think of anything memorable he did.

Argent for me and easily the best song writer when you think of both Argent and The Zombies. Wakeman considers his organ solo on Hold Your Head Up to be the best so he most definitely does belong on any keyboard poll and not just this one.

I'd choose Manfred even over both of those.

Hi,

Very scary ... to choose.

However, Manfred Mann was around from the start of the "progressive" era, even though he was not always doing his own work. But one could easily say that his versions of many folks' work are/were rather progressive by comparison.

I'm not sure that Rod Argent was that great, and if one takes away one hit song, I am not sure that he would ever be remembered. Dave Greenslade, gave his name to the band, but I am not sure that the band was strictly about him.

A better listing or idea for one would be Lord vs Wakeman ... that ought to get a few folks' feathers going.
Music is not just for listening ... it is for LIVING ... you got to feel it to know what's it about! Not being told!
