Sounds from the horrible eighties
on 24 December 2016
What might have been if this album had been recorded in the late sixties or early seventies? Could have been just great. Here we have one of the greatest musicians of all time play with his toys and sounding small. Those were the days in the horrible eighties when all you got was pounding and lifeless drum machines and childish and cheap synth sounds all over the place. A missed opportunity you might say. Anyway, now that it is Christmas, I played the album twice and had fond memories of Keith Emerson, a musical giant and genius.
