Radio Erewhon on Live 365

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Went to Greg Lake's "Songs of a Lifetime" show in Atlanta last night (4/26/12). I highly recommend that you go if you get a chance. The evening is divided about equally between music and reminiscences, with an audience Q&A segment. Greg has some great stories and is quite the raconteur. The music includes songs from throughout Greg's career, as well as songs by artists who influenced him. The latter category includes songs like Elvis' "Heartbreak Hotel," the Beatles' "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready," and Hendrix' "Axis: Bold as Love." The Lake songs include "From the Beginning," "Still . . . You Turn Me On," a medley of "Epitaph" and "In the Court of the Crimson King," "I Talk to the Wind," "Lucky Man" (of course), and much more. He plays and sings with pre-recorded backing tracks, so the sound of the music is quite full, but the setting remains intimate and personal. A great evening for any fan of Lake, Crimson or ELP.
