This album may very well be the equivalent of the super weapon that ended W.W.II.

I've been waiting for this on CD since I wore out the tapes. The sound is much cleaner than the records or cassette tapes. Unlike Keith Emerson with the Nice it includes Country Pie/Brandenburg Concerto No.6, plus 5 bonus tracks. Recorded live in Oct of 1969 it's the next best thing to having been there. If you liked the orchestration on ELP Works Live Tour then this one will take you back to the early days of Emerson and the Nice.

After not hearing this album for quite a few years, it was very enjoyable to listen again. I was surprised how some moments of it are as inculcated in my memory as any Beatle song or other item of the era. Lee and Brian play with authority, Emerson is amazing--this was my first exposure to his stuff. Over time, I acquired the 3 Immediate albums and Elegy besides this (LPs long gone now). For me, this remains the high point of the Nice; I did go on to follow ELP for awhile and saw them once in Atlanta in 1971. It struck me at one moment that the Nice were better rehearsed than the orchestra! Naturally, rehearsing an orchestra is a far more complicated and expensive proposition. And no doubt Emerson and Eger would make some changes or corrections in that process, which would hinder polishing things. That said, the orchestra plays quite well. An energized and joyous live performance. Absolutely recommended.

Only 24 years old at the time, Keith Emerson writes a Concerto and this is the live premier caught on tape at the Fairfield hall. If ever their was a time when reefer smoke was in the same hall as a tuxedoed stuffy orchestra, this is it. THis is also the first time this was done anywhere, before Deep Purples Concerto a year later, the Moody Blues did it, bu tonly in the studio and Yes tried to play live their Time and a Word record with an orchestra with disasterous results, But Keith, Lee and Brian pull it off here, what an amazing record.

As a bonus, they included in this long awaited release, side one of the record "Autuum to Spring"

The battle to determine the best rock band ever (certainly of the progressive rock era) was settled many years ago. However, very few people knew about the outcome. I count myself among those unfortunates who were left out of the loop by an uncommunicative rock label that had THE NICE under contract. This album may very well be the equivalent of the super weapon that ended W.W.II. An example of an event when very few people knew what had happened. It took a large communication effort to let the world know.

To convert the barbarian hordes of singleminded drones that adore the tired gods of progressive rock is my life's work. I feel the daunting task of what looms before. Even now I can sense the massing of gigantic armies to divert (nay prevent) me from my righteous quest to communicate to the world the good words: "THE NICE are the masters of the Progressive Rock universe". One listen to the FIVE BRIDGES album could be all that is needed but it is a sneeky opus. My task with this expanded edition CD is made even easier. But I would still wholeheartedly accept the commission if given only the original vinyl pressing. My favorite song of the last year is contained herein. "Country Pie/Brandenburg Concierto No. 5". I can't imagine life without it. And yet, with those words, I am only increasing the array of enemies that will form an axis against my undertaking. Their very worst complaint does no harm against the magnificent armor that protects my enterprise, which is the voice of bassist/vocalist Lee Jackson. So often maligned by those who have no inkling of what it's like being the first at the beginning of a movement, a genre, a new creation. Certainly there are more pleasant voices. But are they perfectly balanced vocals with the subject and the content?

I bought the original LP on vinyl in 69 or 70 when I was in Europe. I loved it, particularly the cover of Dylan's Country Pie. That song has run in and out of my head for 40 years. I didn't think I'd ever find the recording again after losing it when relocating back to the states. Amazing. It's here and better than ever with the remastering.

Over those past 40 years, my passion for music expanded to include classical as well as rock and other genres. This album was part of that expansion, particularly Tchaikovsky's Pathetique. I thank Keith Emerson (and the other classically-trained rock musicians) for helping me investigate new areas.

Although I'll never play as well as Emerson or Greg Lake (I play bass and Hammond organ) they, along with those others, have been inspiration to me.

I'd recommend this remaster to anyone who heard The Nice or ELP in the 60s/70s, particularly those who heard the 5 Bridges Suite. It never sounded sweeter. (Bad pun...sorry.) Anyway, it's a great album, a great job of remastering and a steal at the mp3 download price.

I finally got this album following a bout of nostalgia for my native land and in particular for an area of the country where I frequented my youth.

Thirty seven or so years later, the album does not generate as much enthusiasm as it did in my younger days. While the expanded edition is a most welcome addition to the growing repetoire of the available music of the Nice, it really has not stood the test of time too well.

All the trademarks of the band are there in their glorious splendour while Keith Emerson towers as a colossus virtuoso against the others in the band who are no novices in the rock game themselves. However there is a gnawing sense of doubt against the project of group and orchestra in the Fairfield Hall. The music of the time stands as empty as a Tyneside shipyard today despite all of Emerson's skills as a musician. I find that the commissioned work is not a real reflection of the city either then or now. The city which has undergone a major renovation and has been transformed into a city of culture from a city of deindustrialisation and now presents a bold new face to the future.

In retrospect it seems to me that this is a vainglorious attempt at a novel approach for the arts in bringing a progressive rock band together with an orchestra via the mechanism of Emerson who clearly is a talented and gifted musician but who lacks the rquisite skills of composition to do a significant portrayal of the city of Newcastle.

Having said all of that the musicianship of this album is no doubt exceptional and certainly portrays the power and intensity of the Nice and the orchestra. It is a real pity that a DVD does not exist which would transform the aural experience to the multi-media event that a Nice performance was.
