disappointing that you cannot find anything by ELP you like. Not even Lucky Man or Knife Edge?

ELP - Karn Evil 9
Genesis - Suppers Ready
Yes - Gates of Delirium
Tull - Aqualung
Floyd - Time
Crimson - Cirkus

the only tricky choice was Crimson. They have so many classic tracks but nothing that is obviously head and shoulders above the rest

Thanks for reminding me about "Lucky Man". I'll choose that as my favourite, seeing as that's the only ELP song I really know. Smile

Me too! LOL

But seriously,

Genesis - The Knife (Hard one for me, could be "Supper's Ready too...)
Yes - Awaken (Or Close to the edge, I love both)
King Crimson - Lizard (Or Starless, both are masterpieces)
Pink Floyd - Echoes
Jethro Tull - Taab part 1, (not the biggest fan of Tull honestly but I really like TaaB)
ELP - Tarkus!!

And I'm deeply sorry for the alternative choises.

Dancing with the Moonlit Knight - Gates of Delirium - Echoes (wins the price for the best of the best big 6 tracks) - Industry - Dun Ringill - Take a Pebble
Went for extreme outsider choices of KC and Tull because of both of these I love about 5-10 equally. Could also have nominated Starless and Aqualung but wanted to have more fun.
