5.0 out of 5 stars May the show never end......, 6 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songs Of A Lifetime (Audio CD)
I have seen Greg Lake perform live many many times over the years, both with ELP and with his own band. Personally I think the guy is a legend. However, when I went to Liverpool in November 2012 it was the first time I had seen him play solo. I did wonder if his decision to use recorded backing tracks, rather than an actual band, would work but I needn't have worried. By mixing these tracks with acoustic numbers and anecdotes he gave us a very enjoyable and highly entertaining evening. He even flirted with a keyboard which was good to see (but won't worry a certain Mr Emo).

For me the track selection was well thought out, although it obviously won't please everyone, and I thought he was in extremely good voice. The last time I had seen him was with ELP at the High Voltage Festival in 2010 but he sang much better this time.

I pre-ordered this CD and then counted the days until it arrived. I was listening to it a couple of minutes after it arrived and I really did enjoy it. So often the release of a live CD does not do justice to the original performance but in this case I think it does.

Don't look at the track listing and think it is about milking back-catalogues, this is an honest reflection of the great man's career presented with both humour and humility.

The really good thing is that this tour has only just scratched the surface in respect of material so with a bit of luck there will be much more to come.
