(3. Would have been "Killer" has it not been for the lyrical amateur hour on Pete's part.)

Let's add "Darkness", "Refugees", and "White Hammer" to it. Awesome tracks.

Great additional choices.  This was originally side 1 of the vinyl and blew me away the first time I heard it.
why not add 'Whatever Would Robert....' ,  'Out Of My Book' and 'After The Flood' for an absolute PERFECT list LOL.
Whilst on the subject, there are 2 versions of 'Refugees'.  My 'Least We Can Do....' LP features a longer version, whilst the single version on subsequent pressings is a 'lesser' version, in that it is about a minute shorter and somewhat 'polished'.  Opinions ??

Never liked the single version. There's only one Refugees.

I can't believe i haven't posted here yet, totally thought i was on page one. Embarrassed

I voted for Emperor iIn His War Room, it's a favorite of mine. I love the quiet beginning section. Just a classic of theirs in my eyes. Though VdGG's early era is probably my favorite collection of albums from a single band.

A friend knew I was a King Crimson/Fripp maniac and played me Emporer...it was the 1st VDGG song I ever heard and I was instantly hooked.  I love all the VDGG 70's albums, but the early albums remain my favourites to this day.
I'm using the chicken to measure it.
