The Nice
« on: March 07, 2016, 06:57:52 PM »
Keith Emerson's band prior to forming ELP. The Nice would showcase a lot of his ELP trademark organ and piano theatrics. This band consisted of Emerson, along side Lee Jackson (bass/vocals), Davy O'List (guitar, The first Nice album only, after which the band was a power trio), and Brian Davison.

AWESOME, that is definitely the definitive version. I'll be picking up that remaster. unfortunately I'm listening to it having just heard that Keith has passed away   :'( RIP Keith. He was by far the greatest rock keyboard player that ever lived as far as I'm concerned and one of the best showman in rock history, and the greatest one that was not a singer/frontman or holding a guitar PERIOD.
