PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’m not the biggest of the vinyl collectors these days I just might have to break that stand and order myself copies of these releases and set them aside for the archive. I’m not too sure I want to do mail order of vinyl since I have little experience in this practice. I know a lot of my friends do it all the time so maybe its a non-issue. There isn’t a Walmart near our Metal Sanctum Sanctorum so its probably my only option. I do have a number of these albums remastered editions on CD already so as I close this news up I wonder what you think about it all. Will you be purchasing? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.

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.
