Product description

Product Description

The Nice with keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson (later to be a founding member of Emerson Lake & Palmer) at the helm was one of the most adventurous bands of the British psychedelic scene. “Diamond Hard Blue Apples Of The Moon” is a 2 CD collection consisting of live recordings from 1967-’70 concerts, TV, and radio appearances and the first complete overview of the live history of The Nice, covering the bands entire lifespan and all the tracks have been newly re-mastered. The first Volume – The Quartet documents the band’s quartet phase and features a re-invention of Dylan’s “She Belongs To Me”, acid-fantasy lyricism of “Flower King of Flies”, surprisingly never recorded covers of The Byrds “Get To You” and Frank Zappa’s “Lumpy Gravy” and the bands biggest charting single a bold radical reinvention of Bernstein’s “America”. The second Volume – The Trio documents the band’s trio phase (minus a lead guitarist) finds Emerson as a front man unleashing particularly proto ELP pieces “Intermezzo Karelia Suite” and “Pathetique” a choral arrangement of Tim Hardin’s “Hang On To A Dream, a pych-soaked take on Dave Brubeck’s “Rondo”, Sonny Rollins jazz classic “St Thomas” featuring a surprise guest, the renowned U.K. troubadour Roy Harper on vocals and the ambitious “Five Bridges Suite”. “Diamond Hard Blue Apples Of The Moon” also features cover artwork designed by illustrator William Stout, internationally renowned as one of the first rock ‘n’ roll bootleg cover artists. In Keith Emerson’s own words “I hope you will enjoy listening to these unique recordings as I do”.
