Keith Emerson(ex Nice)-keyboards.
Greg Lake(ex King Crimson)-vocals, guitar, bass.
Carl Palmer(ex Atomic Rooster)-drums, percussion.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer were a British band, considered a super group of the decade and had the most commercial success than any other progressive rock out of the 1970's.
Their music are progressive classical rock that are high precision with keyboards and synthesizer technology.

1. Layered keyboard sounds from Emerson.
2. Churning bass, impressive guitar work and commanding vocals from Lake.
3. Intricate and powerful drumming from Palmer.

Brain Salad Surgery, their 5th album was recorded under their own Manticore label in 1973.
The live concert based on this album was the biggest concert draw on the planet.

My fave song is "Karn Evil 9"
