1 stars Keith Emerson should be hanging his head in shame and doesnt even wince when he plays bad notes and slurs runs. Well it made me wince. I loved ELP have everything they made, but this video could curdle cream. What is wrong with Greg Lake? He may as well be in the studio on his own. At no point does he look at Emerson or seem to aknlowledge the other band members. The whole thing is badly played, Carl playing out of time and as mentioned, Keith making a real mess of the playing. I guess this was around the time of his arm problems. Advice to Greg, for gods sake look as if you are having fun, smile, maybe even try to enjoy it. The sad thing is that ELP went on to play for another 7 years after this dismal concert and get better, but this is such a low point. I always thought Emerson could do no wrong, well with this he came crashing to earth and along with changing states cd and off the shelf, destroyed his reputation for a long time. So,so, so, so sad...get me a ladder
