I remember being 13 and hitchhiking home from the ELP concert... The good old days when kids could be kids after midnight. Brain Salad Surgery ranks 2nd to my favorite of those times... Close to the Edge.

I remember being thirteen and seeing this on TV Friday night- California Jam- unbelievable live. Went out and bought the album the next day. There is no other music quite like this. One of my few regrets was never seeing them live.

@grantgal... a b o u t any song from this album or Tarkus...but there aren't but a VERY few drummers on this planet who can keep up with -- much less show off like -- Carl Palmer.

Dean, especially since I'm a keyboardist now, the biggest mistake of my life was NOT going to the Brain Salad Surgery concert when it came through Albuquerque. I wasn't a musician at the time, and wasn't fully aware of who ELP was yet. If only I had known...

Probably the second concert I went to when I was young . 1973-74 Brain Salad tour . Providence Civic Center .

I don't think there is another drummer in the world that can keep pace with Keith Emerson and make it sound so effortless.. . C a r l Palmer simply rocks!!

I will never forget coming home on a Saturday 1975 I was a senior in high school and found my dad listening to this album. He didn't like most of what I listened to but he'd say these guys are pretty good.

Joe is right, it should be Karn Evil 9: 1st Impression, Part 1, not 1st Impression, Part 1 (You also have this problem with part 2).

I'll be there, I'll be there, I will be there. The phrase "Karn Evil" is a slight alteration of the word "carnival".

Wrong name. It's supposed to be Karn Evil 9: 1st Impression, Part 1

Arguably THE ELP masterpiece. My favorite for sure!
