Greg Lake Tells Stories And Performs Classics With New "Live In Piacenza" Release

English musician, singer, songwriter Greg Lake has been a vital part of the history of progressive rock. He was the founding member of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP), but has enjoyed a successful solo career since the early eighties. His latest release is a new live album title "Greg Lake Live In Piacenza," which was recorded back in 2012 and was released in a number of different formats, including CD, vinyl and a limited edition box set.

The new release kicks off with a short introduction led by the King Crimson favorite "21st Century Schizoid Man." The show is called "Songs Of A Lifetime" and continues with the acoustic strumming of "Lend Your Love To Me Tonight." Lake explains why he picked these certain songs for this "storyteller" type concert. Fans appreciate his rendition of Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel," before Greg Lake goes back to his early days with King Crimson, performing "Epitaph/In The Court Of The Crimson King." Lake pays tribute to The Beatles with "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away," then showcases some of his days with ELP performing "Trilogy/Still... You Turn Me On." He also delivers his Christmas single " I Believe In Father Christmas," before closing his show with the popular ELP songs "Lucky Man" and "Karn Evil 9 (1st Impression, part II)."
