The Press Release:
The Shame, The Shy Limbs, King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, solo artist, producer, composer, lyricist, bass player extraordinaire, Greg Lake had it all. On October 23rd, BMG will pay fitting tribute to Greg Lake’s career journey with ‘The Anthology’, an essential collection of his outstanding songs and iconic performances.

‘The Anthology’ has many notable highlights: for starters there’s the hugely collectable Psych 45 ‘Love’ that Lake recorded in 1969 whilst with the Shy Limbs, alongside carefully curated treasures from ELP’s hit albums, notably ‘Take A Pebble’, ‘C’est La Vie’ and ‘Lucky Man’. No Anthology would be complete without that much-loved solo hit ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’, the inclusion of King Crimson’s ‘21st Schizoid Man’, ‘Peace’ and ‘In The Court Of The Crimson King’, plus Greg’s re-recording of the old ELP favorite ‘Closer To Believing’ which he made towards the end of his life and can be heard on CD2.

“Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin is one of the monster tracks of all time. How do you top that? Well, you can’t but we decided to just have fun with it. I came up with this On Green Dolphin Street kinda chord progression as the intro on the synth with a heavy-duty brass sound that worked pretty well. The guys fell into it right quick and it rocks the house. Carmine did a great job with the drum track and Tim and Vince killed it. I did the vocals in Florida and sent it back to Carmine in Los Angeles and he mixed it. Hope you dig it.”
