    Emerson Lake & Palmer afternoon

    Post by MontanaWay on Sun Mar 30, 2014 5:25 pm

    I've been listening to Emerson Lake & Palmer all afternoon on my ST70, oh my, I'm all gooey inside!......what a sound!  drunken 
    These vinyls I bought as a teenager in the early to mid 70's and they still sound as good as the day I bought them!
    Just as well my wife and son are in town for the day!!!!!!!

    That's so '70s ... twere I you, if I found myself listening for over four hours straight, I'd seek immediate professional ELP!

    If you're into rock opera, Kompendium;s Elements and Strangers on a Train's The Key both fit the bill and are quite tasty. Elements is three cd's counting the instrumental version, and The Key is two disks, so that'll keep you busy for a while.

    If it's all the keyboard work that gets your heart pumping, how about Handel's Concerti for Organ? I recently scored a nice box set ... in QUAD!

    PS ... at least you're just stuck in the last century. I hit the Goodwill up for a 12 disk Readers Digest boxed set of light classical this week - RCA Red Label, monophonic, and really choice condition. Been wandering past the turntable most of the day and cuing vinyl for ripping to FLAC. New meets old. GW wanted $4, but I talked them down to $2 ...

    I like the fact those guys are/were classically trained and adapted the music into the then rock, moog & synth, pretty cool stuff.
    I'm a moog and synth nut since the early days, also love the old Hammond's.
    That Handel sounds interesting, love big cathedral pipe organs, also like Bach for that reason.

    Boy, you're stirrin' up memories. ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition was my introduction to classical music, though I'd been forced to play all the basics in piano lessons as a pup I thought I hated the stuff, but we rocked out to ELP, especially Pictures and Nutrocker, they called it. Was cruising the Record Hut in Salem, Oregon, and by chance watch through the classical section, and there was Pictures at an Exhibition by some guy named Mussorgsky, orchestrated by some frog named Ravel and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic by some conductor named Von Karajan on a label I'd never heard of, DG. Took it home, spun it once on my system, which then was a Heathkit AR-15 and a pair of Mac ML-1C speaks, and never looked back.
    Rick Wakeman from Yes was another guy who could bang out the classics and send you back to the originals. The Paramount Theatre in Seattle ran six floors beneath the street, which was where the organ sat on an hydraulic riser. Yes, during their break, disappeared from the stage and Rick came rising out of nowhere with the organ and pounded out Bach's Tocatta & Fugue, stage all dark, a single light on him. Brought the house down.
    Them were the days. Maybe that's what I'm trying to recreate with tubes. Got Horowitz pegging the meters as we speak.

    I have all EL&P's vinyls, I do treasure them!
    You mention Herbert Von Karajan, he is my 'hero', for one of the better words, when it comes to classical orchestral director. A genius he was, I love his rendition of Beethoven's 9th, coral, Berliner Philharmonic Orchestra, it is just wonderful to listen to, especially on the ST70, matter of fact, I have a 1964 copy, Deutsche Grammophon edition, use to belong to my parents.

    I don't remember what song it was, but I used to listen to ELP and tried to shred various speakers with the super low bass.
    I worked in a hi-fi shop selling JBL speakers which had lifetime warranties and no fault, never got one to blow out.
    Tried real hard when the Carver 700 amp came out!! Pegging the meters constantly!
    Check out the drum solo on this performance! He must have been on speed!
