Exclamation Greg Lake Tour announced

a very unexpected announcement upon ELP's 35th anniversary!

While Keith Emerson had to cancel his Tour upon being diagnosed heart problems, Greg Lake has announced UK dates, European dates coming up!

This comes a big surprise.

Thankfully Mr.Lake seems to have quit smoking - his voice, compared to 1992/93 and especially the 1997/98 Tour disaster, has become much better again - which could be heard during Ringo Starr's 2003 AllStarr Band Tour. Losing a little weight has probably also helped here.

Tour poster attached - visit
Greg Lake.com
for more information and dates.

Cheers,
Christian

of course

I had it preordered from play.com and recieved it around the release date.

Many clips I only knew from still photographs - a very good compilation - I only wished they wouldn't have cut some of the clips short, especially the Japan 1972 stuff. A whole show from that Tour had been recorded, but maybe they are going to release this seperately - and the Milano 1973 show too....!?

As for CalJam - this is finally proof that excellent source material really exists (sound and picture-wise!)! Strangely enough they seem to have taken an ABC TV-source though, since most of the clips are cut/edited quite roughly - I guess due to commercial breaks!?

Cheers,
Christian

Tony,
the DVD, as far as I remember, is Region free PAL - I don't have it on hand now, because I lend it to a friend, so I can't check. You still may be able to watch it, but only in b/w.
I hope though, that Sanctuary will release it in the US aswell - why shouldn't they - ELP have always been very popular in the States.
The 1972 Japan show on video?
How long is it - and what about the quality?
(very curious!)
Later,
Christian

You'll love it.
