"The Three Fates"--One of the most eerie pieces of music I have ever heard,,,,"Gargoyles,catacombs,Stained-glass Cathedral windows ,Bats from the Belfrey"--- An instrumental from the first Emerson, Lake & Palmer album, "The Three Fates" is based on the Greek legend of the Moirai, three women that determined one's destiny. The song is a suite divided into three parts, each representing one of the Moirai. Clotho - The spinner of the thread.
Lachesis - She who measures the thread.
Atropos - The one who cuts the thread.
Keith Emerson composed this. Emerson played the "Clotho" section of this song on the pipe organ. He played the "Lachesis" section using 7-foot Yamaha grand piano at Advision Studios in London. ... See MoreSee Less
"Muddy Water"--Another outstanding song by John(Rabbit)Bundrick from the Classic Heartbreaker Album..Rodgers vocals are sublime nobody sings Rabbit songs better than Rodgers..Tetsu holding the bass, and Simon is playing guitar ,backup vocals with Rabbit, and playing the drums ,they all had to pull their weight on this Album.No Koss is not on it he felt it did not need lead guitar and I agree with him Rabbit's wonderful piano and Organ carry the song.I could hear Marvin Gaye singing this real soulful..The sound Engineer on this as the Album by Richard Digby Smith and Andy Johns is amazing one of the best sound of any Rock Album..Great lyric by Rabbit as well fine songwriter..Hope your keeping well Rabbit and Thank You.Turn it up. ...

Rex released their "Electric Warrior" album on Sept. 24th, 1971. It was their sixth studio album (being the second album under the name "T. Rex", with the first four billed as "Tyrannosaurus Rex").
The first single off the LP was "Get It On" which was released as "Bang A Gong" because the band Chase had already released a single by the same name earlier in the year.
Marc Bolan had a couple of 'guest' performers on this record. Rick Wakeman (Yes) played keys on "Get It On" and Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman ( The Turtles, The Mothers of Invention, Flo & Eddie) sang backup vocals on the record.
Would you agree that "Bang A Gong / Get It On" is one of those songs that has to be played at 11?
Happy 49th Birthday to "Electric Warrior"!!! ... See MoreSee Less
