Icon47 Emerson, Hughes, Boniila - Boys Club Live From California


Got my copy (autographed by Emerson & Bonilla ) today, listening to it now.

This is a must-have release, every track essential, and the sound quality is superb!

It's definitely not the gig though that is out there on bootleg, which is Santa Cruz CA I believe, and part of it sounds suspiciously overdubbed

Tarkus very unfortunately lacks Glenns vocal solo during 'Stones of Years'

Don't forget you can already order the CD via Keith Emerson's official store!

Cheers,
Christian

I absolutely agree with chrisloeb , this is a must-have CD !! Every song is great , Marc Bonilla plays fantastic guitar with a monster sound but most important : Glenn sings brilliant ! The live version of " Cover me " is my favorite tune , I think every fan of the "Addiction" album will love it!

Hi,

I bought the cd of 8 tracks with the signatures on K. Emerson site. In the European Bonus, does Glenn sings or play on "Dreams" and "Afterburner"?

Thanks.

Cheers.

Pere

I don't actually have it, but I do know; YES, he sings on "Dreams".

If I'm not mistaken, "Afterburner", is an instrumental track. Remembering the shows, Glenn was only on stage during his songs, plus a couple during the encore, so NO, I don't believe he is featured at all on that particular track. In fact, he only sung and didn't play any instruments at the gigs, at least the one's Shirean and I attended.

Yes, David is right - I don't have the European version either, but on the recording that has been circulating for over a decade, Dreams is a vocal track with Glenn, and Afterburner is an instrumental track.

Afterburner was the show opener and features Bonilla & Band only. Emerson came onstage 2 songs into the set (Hoedown) and Glenn after him, 8 songs into the set (Whiter Shade).

If you listen closely to the bootleg recording of Afterburner, you will notice that the drummer (I always thought it was Shane Galaas, now I know better) obviously loses one of his drum sticks during the first break

Cheers,
Christian

Just got the album and it sounds very good indeed. I will compare it to the tapes I got from these shows to see if the recordings are the same. Anyway it's a killler show. Middle of a Dream is such a great track - too bad Glenn never worked this out for a release on one of his solo albums. Must be a reason, but it can't be that the track was considered too weak. It's a great melody.

hasta luego

Here's one other review for this release:

Have to agree with you there Christian, now that I have this thing; the omission of this is a real shame. It would of been great to have a clear version of that. I've attached my personal favourite part of it, from the San Francisco gig Shirean and I attended. It was a very good night indeed Seems like yesterday, but was over 10 years ago now

Thanks for posting the SF snippet, David!

It's very different to the one I know, which is from Santa Cruz (most likely).
I have extracted, pimped up the sound a little bit and attached about the same bit from that other show.


Enjoy!

Cheers,
Christian

Many thanks for that snippet Christian. Again brings back some good memories! We were at that one too. Always remember it; as we must have been the youngest one's in the place!! It was like stepping back to 1971...smelt good though Can't imagine how Glenn handled it that night

I just listened to that so many times I lost count. Holy ...holy moly.
To hear just that snippet was so awesome, you can tell Glenn just flat out laid the crowd OUT.
Thanks so much for posting that!!

I never knew you were such an ELP fan, Roger!

Although ELP wasn't exactly my first concert ever to attend (I saw them twice in Sept./Oct. 1992 though), Tarkus will always be one of my favourite pieces of music ever. It defines Progressive Rock.

That combined with Glenn's awsome performance is a musical wet dream and gives me the goose bumps every single time I listen to it.


Cheers,
Christian

I saw EL&P when I was 14 or so, and they played a lot of Brain Salad Surgery and Tarkus....it was a very incredible way to experience my first loud rock concert ever...to say the least! lol

I have not listened to them for many, many years, but I should. I instantly recognized Tarkus...you're so right..having Glenn singing what he did on that clip was wild for me.

When I saw (and finally got to meet) Glenn in LA, I sat a couple of chairs down from Keith in the balcony. I kept thinking, I have seen this fellow before. lol It was only 35 years earlier at my first concert! lol That's what I told Glenn then, also... hey, it's been a while, haven't seen you in 31 years. lol

Just heard 'Dreams' on the radio. I was in the kitchen and thought I heard Glenn singing. Went to the living room to check my satellite radio where it gives you the artist and song title.....lo and behold it was Boys Club

I didn't see it listed on the CD I have and was wondering where it came from. After coming here to visit my old friend, Search, is when I remembered there was a Euro version with bonus tracks. 'Dreams' is such a good track, now I have to get these bonus tracks

Gig poster from Palookaville, Santa Cruz, 14th May 1998. It was signed by both, Keith and Glenn, and sold last October on ebay for 45 USD.

As the auction had already ended, it was a bit tricky to copy it...
