This is one of those Cd's you better buy now. Once the IPOD nation takes over, I seriously doubt you'll be able to find this to download. The version of America is everything. As a kid listening to this album for the first time, I couldnt imagine how he was getting those sounds out of the organ. I assumed he had some sort of Moog or Arp involved. When a friend pointed out that on stage synths didnt exist at the time this was recorded, I realized Keith's genius! Theres a fire & rage is his early playing thats as wicked as Hendrix and as punk as Steve Jones!

When I ordered this LP from my Record Club in 1971, The Nice had been a Memory for over a Year's Time. "Jackson Height's", was Up-And-Running, as was a Group called: "Emerson,Lake & Palmer". But, as a Fan of The Nice, {since 1969} it was a pleasant surprise to see this...the Last Release, by a Sixties Band that was so different from everyone else, and a Band that could play circles around just about everybody else in the Music Business, had One more Record left for us.

With the Piano of the Opening Track: "Hang On To A Dream", we here have what is widely regarded, as Keith Emerson's finest moment on Stage with the Nice. With just Bass Guitar, Triangle and Traps, and Mr. Emerson {The Man with 12 Hands}, this Re-Working of the Tim Hardin Classic, is almost a History Lession of the last 100 Years of Popular Music. This 12+ Minute Track, with Keith going Gonzo, and backed by the Amazing Walking Bass Lines of Lee Jackson and the Subtle Percussion of Brian Davison, is Fantastic, and ELP aside...this is one of Keith's Best Moments on any Record, by far my Favorite Track by The Nice.

Track Two is: "My Back Pages", a Bob Dylan Tune, that was a Minor Hit for The Byrds in 1966. This Selection almost made onto: "Five Bridges", but was left off that gem at the last minute. Keith is still on Piano for the first half of this Number, but in Dramatic Fashion he switches to his Hammond, and it is here where it all takes off, Mood & Timing...The Nice were Masters of this!

Side Two begins with "Pathetique", which I had heard before on: "Five Bridges" with the full Orchestra. Now this Version of The Tchaikovsky Classic is performed by Keith, Lee & Brian, without assistance and allows the Trio to show the World as nice as the Orchestra was, the Nice don't need one to sound like one.

This is certainly the best of the collection.Outstanding performances of "Hang On To A Dream","My Back Pages"and "3rd Movement". This version of "America" is their absolute best.The six extra cuts from previous works fill out the album nicely.A truly great work!

The "Pathetique" Mvt is The Greatest Thing Keith Ever Did With The Nice,It Kicks Arse(so does The Hammond L-100),Espically when he starts Blusing it Up At The End,The Energy Of This Thing Is Just Over The Top.Tchaikovsky would have Sprung A Woody seeing Keith Peforming This Number Live.Really Nice Innovative Piano In "My Back Pages" & "Hang On To A Dream"(In time you'll even get use to Lee Jacksons Off Key RASPY Vocals),as well.P.S. Live Version Of America Is Great Too.

Of course the highlight here is the live "America" from madman Keith Emerson at the knive-ridden Hammond L100. THis is like ELP on steroids folks, highly recommended and I think I like The Nice better than ELP in a strange way, they were much more raw and in your face.

This album is worth it just for Keith Emerson's astonishing reading of the Tchaikovsky 6th ("Pathetique") Symphony's 3rd Movement. One of the most impressive recordings of his career, this one's adrenaline-pumping factor is right up there with ELP's later "The Barbarian". It's both true to the original AND innovative. And that Hammond: what a sound!

Also, the melding of Bernstein's "America" from WEST SIDE STORY and part of the finale of Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World" works just great, although IMO the home listening experience is somewhat marred by Keith's extravagant Hendrix-like more-about-the-visuals stage show.

Those are the two standouts for me.

Of the added tracks from EMERLIST DAVJACK: only "Flower King of Flies" and "Rondo" from that album have ever moved me and neither of them are here, but so what? The point here is Emerson's immortal tour-de-force performances of the Tchaikovsky and the Bernstein/Dvorak. Every progressive rock fan should have these.
