Gemstone.
I agree, Marcin K., this is a thrilling, gripping, chilling cut. An immaculate voice carrying, especially here, a vital, Crimson gemstone of a tune repleat with impossibly trenchant lyrics. A perfect Celebration release. I didn't want it to end...

Untouchable vocal prowess og Greg...
As moving and sweeping as it always was on the ITCOTCK, here it is - the UNIVERSE of Greg's voice - thrilling and dooming at the same time, in full, clean, unthrottled glory. Untouchable prowess, with all the respects due to anybotdy who attempted to sing this after Lake... and landed sub-standard. THIS MAGIC just can't be topped anyhow. And such is the power of this melody and chorus - that, when it appeared as an vocal-guitar only interlude during performances of "Tarkus" by ELP in 1974 - it brought the show down to complete halt, leaving the audience simply stunned. (As witneseed on "Welcome Back My Friends..." live triple LP.). 50 years on - this gem shines ever so brightly, as when first laid down to tape, by a young and hungry genius of voice and bass. Thank you Greg, you are so missed.
