Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
Robin 2, Wolverhampton
2 December 2011
itself kicked off with 'KE9', a firm favourite of every ELP fan, but
being the Carl Palmer Band things have a different twist. The
keyboard parts are taken on by Paul Bielatowicz , a superb guitarist who
manages to pull off just about every trick in his arsenal to make every
track seem familiar, yet unfamiliar at the same time.
ELP tracks followed including 'Hoedown' and 'Abaddons Bolero' (Which was
only played a handful of times by ELP themselves). Paul's guitar
solo followed which included a frantic version of the William Tell
This led to
'Take A Pebble' in which bass player Simon Fitzpatrick nailed down a
beautiful rendition of a timeless classic...
I must admit
that it seems odd at times not hearing the voice of Greg Lake singing
these tracks, but I was making up for it in my head.
'Pictures at an Exhibition' followed before the crowd pleaser 'Fanfare
For The Common Man' (including the mighty Carl Palmer's drum solo)
closed the show.
obscure live track 'Trilogy' and 'Nutrocker' sealed the deal on a great
evening and the crowd queued patiently to get various items signed by
the man himself.
