OMG yes, lol

This is why he's still my favorite guitarist - "sloppiness" be damned. His sonic palette is unmatched.

2:13 - 2:30. Short but sweet.

I love the whole treacly performance but especially 1:55 - end.

Of all the words written about Bob D, I'm not sure if "treacly" has ever been one of them until now! LOL Good choice though, ribbons; I've never heard that version before.

For me, a dramatic example of a really good part in an otherwise irritating song has always been the closer to ELP's Lucky Man. How many times have I sat through Greg Lake's pedestrian song while waiting for K Emerson to bring the song to life? Well, here's a pretty decent cover which is 100% good bit. Thank you, internet.

Bob’s cadence is really drawled and slow as molasses there – which is what I meant by *treacly*. I actually like the live version much better than the original studio version – glad you liked it too!

Totally agree with you, Lisna. “Lucky Man” is a yawner until Keith’s Moog solo comes in. Much as I love Greg Lake, I always felt “Lucky Man” was underwhelming. That’s a good cover of the solo, btw – and as you say, 100% the good bit. I wonder what Synthgirl thinks of it!

Keith Emerson is one of my favorite and most influential musicians of all time. As a teenager I tried to master the entirety of the Tarkus album while playing along on my eldest sister's split-level organ for hours on end (she lost interest in the organ and I later *adopted* it. )

Are you at all familiar with keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Flowers? Here she is, playing Tarkus on Keith’s modular Moog. Rachel is also blind – and pretty amazing. This brings back a lot of memories.

Big ELP fan, and I absolutely love the Lucky Man synth solo. I like the song just fine (I'm a sucker for medieval themed lyrical imagery), but that part elevates it so much. Props to you for tackling Emerson's keyboard parts, his technique is so far beyond what I'm capable of, haha. Truly a legend.
