Lol!  You have done it again.  Right up there with 'Tarkus' making it so hard to choose a particular section.  I love sitting through this in its entirety.  Anyway, if forced to choose, I go for the quite brilliant '2nd Impression' - I often wished there were more extended piano trio pieces on the studio albums ('Infinite Space' for example is horribly truncated) but this sort of makes up for it.

First impression by many magnitudes. I always skip the middle bit....its sh*te...then the bombastic ending roars back, but not as good as the first bit...tbe problem with ELP...curates egg syndrome...
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

Part Duex ! I love the focus on the piano, the steel drums and the tension in the middle section.
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

The bit where Emerson goes all jazzy on the piano.

I didn't quite understand why you divided the first impression in two parts. I voted for the first option, but to me the whole first impression is my favorite

I've never really paid attention to the subdivisions of the track, so I don't really know which has my favourite part. But my favourite part is the part which sounds like steel drums, starting from 14:30.
 
 
I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.

Not the section that has been played on the radio. It's one of four ELP songs you hear on the radio.

Fun Fact: the steel drum part quotes the jazz track St. Thomas, made famous by Sunny Rollins. It's a calypso-type tune, so fitting for the steel drum sound.

Four? What's the fourth after Pt. 1, Lucky Man, and From the Beginning?

Fanfare For The Common Man has become associated with sporting events ever since the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics.

3rd Impression easily although the live version is so much better. 1st Impression (both parts) is better on the album as the band had already been playing it live before it was recorded and it shows. 3rd Impression needed to be played live to really get the greatness out of it. The Cal Jam performance is especially brilliant.

Haven't heard it on FM in Southern California. Nor SiriusXM, but I wouldn't be surprised if they played it there. I once heard Watcher of Skies on there and was very surprised. Guess that kind of stuff just isn't played very often where I live in the States. Whatever, that's what Spotify is for.

Always loved First Impression (Part 1) more than the more famous Part 2. The interaction between all of them is superb. The half minute from about 4.50 until the 'Step inside...' vocal line always gives me goosebumps.

That's true. Fanfare was the theme song for the Bicycle Tour of Guatemala in the 80's and early 90's. It was only some years later that I found out it was an ELP track

I'll toss the radio part a vote. It was one of the songs that got commonly played at my university's football games last year and I have a lot of great memories of those football games since I'm in the marching band.
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)
