Canario From Fantasia para un Gentilhombre J. Rodrigo 7. Japanese Edition Bonuses : 8. Canario Rehearsal 9. Taste of my Love Rehearsal Letters from the Front Rehearsal Some Emerson, Lake and Palmer fans expressed their disappointment at Love Beach Atlantic , with its short love songs, weak synthesizer sounds, an appearance on Top of the Pops and what they perceived as inferior lyrics, but this was not entirely the case for the young future Chinwagstuff blogger.

At first, it did not even match the singer-songwriter material of Still. An interesting fact about Rodrigo I just made up; he invented sani-flush for RVs.

But the best I could come up with is frisbeeing it at the heads of zombies, the way the heroes do the shitty LPs in their record collection in Shaun of the Dead. Metal Machine Music? The soundtrack to Suspiria? You may even be contagious, what with the prog germ jimmying around in your system like a clutch of hopped up clog dancers.

I sent this article to a friends friend who writes music reviews out on the West Coast. He said you ought to be fired, and wondered what kind of editor would put up with this crap. But come the trumpet shattered dawn will the spirit they shared be reborn. Comrades in arms, may they rise, fight and shine again, till "who goes there", will be answered with friend again.

Once there stood a man, alone, sword in his hand. In the face of the teeth and flame - and it was all in England's name. I was told how she grew, she alone shone her light on everyone.

And if you made the first eleven then you'd be sure to get to heaven, like the captain of the school. I was taught how to win and to lose with that "get you next time" smile, Learned Latin verbs in fear of a beating and for years thought central heating, was for just old people's homes. I was raised on the past, the Tower and Saint Paul's and Westminster escorted well-bred girls to dances, and learned to drive a horse in harness, through the English countryside. Formed of five tracks, the album includes a rendition of " Jerusalem " which features the debut of the Moog Apollo , a prototype polyphonic synthesizer.

The minute track " Karn Evil 9 " is the longest song recorded by the group. Brain Salad Surgery was released in November and reached No. From November to September , the band toured North America and Europe which included a headline spot at the inaugural California Jam Festival on 6 April at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California , to an attendance of , people.

Their performance was broadcast across the US. Their theatrics included Emerson playing a piano as it spun, suspended, end-over-end; Palmer playing on a rotating drum platform; and a Hammond organ thrown around the stage to create feedback.

Emerson often used a knife, given to him by Lemmy Kilmister who had roadied for the Nice, [45] [46] to force the keys on the organ to stay down. Emerson used a large Moog modular synthesizer on stage but it was unreliable as heat affected its sound. The album peaked at No. It is a double album with one side of an LP containing songs by each member and a fourth of group material.

Much of the album was recorded with an orchestral accompaniment; Emerson's side consists of his minute, three-movement "Piano Concerto No. Lake contributes five songs he co-wrote with Sinfield, and Palmer's includes two covers of classical pieces by Sergei Prokofiev and Bach.

One of the two group tracks, " Fanfare for the Common Man ", is a cover of the same-titled orchestral piece by Aaron Copland , who gave permission to have the band release it. Works Volume 1 was released in March and peaked at No. A single of "Fanfare for the Common Man" was released and reached No.

In November , Works Volume 2 was released as a compilation of shorter tracks recorded from —76 during various album recording sessions.

The album was not as commercially successful as the band's previous albums; it reached No. The two Works albums were supported by North American tours which lasted from May to February , spanning over dates. Emerson wished for a double album release, but Atlantic Records decided against it due to the band's pending dissolution at its time of release.

In , the album was repackaged with additional tracks as Works Live , and put out on video in Lake and Palmer blame Emerson for the loss as the use of an orchestra on tour was his idea.

After their —78 tour, the band discussed their next move. Emerson recalled that in order for the group to continue, "we would have to do a lot of cutting down" and considered the possibility of producing music with just a piano, bass guitar, and drums. The second side is taken up with "Memoirs of an Officer and a Gentleman", a four-part minute track that tells a coming of age story of a soldier during the World War II -era.

It did sell enough to be certified gold in the US for , copies sold, in January In early , Palmer attempted to organise a farewell summer tour and have the group disband at its conclusion.

Due to internal problems, such as "what we should play and how we should play it", the tour never materialised. Palmer declined to participate in a reunion as he was busy with commitments with Asia.

Rumours also linked Bill Bruford to their new line-up, but he was committed to King Crimson and Earthworks. A far cry from any of their previous efforts. A dismal album with only sparse moments of brilliance. Pretty good not real long though, get it on the cheap. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Translate all reviews to English. In the remaster, track 12 is mystifyingly identified incorrectly.

On the label it says it's an alternative mix of "Honourable Company A March ", which is the final, instrumental section of "Memoirs of an Officer and a Gentleman". How can a supposedly professional music company get something so basic as the title of a song completely wrong???

I was taught to behave, like an officer and a gentleman, And when I finally marched from Sandhurst I learned to put my fellow man first And there was daily talk of war I spent in the United States of America, I grew to love it's many faces, and they had built some amazing places, And I thought they'd come in on our side [Love at First Sight].
  7. 'Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentlemen' is 20 minutes of mediocre music dressed up in pretentious lyrics. Surprisingly it's still easy to buy this album. Ironically, prevalent sniggering about the album over the years has probably resulted in some sales: people want to hear for themselves what the fuss is all about/5(69).
