Yes. Indeed - I hadn't made that comparison before

Good lad

I don't know either band well, though am more familiar with ELP than Nice - from my little bit of knowledge I'm inclined to agree.

JJ, do you know the Refugee album- The Nice minus Emerson and replaced by Patrick Moraz - a wonderful album

My mates and I used to play this after school for about three weeks on it's release

(although if push comes to shove - the album Ars Longa Vita Brevis is my favourite)

Norwegian Wood!

America!

Elegy
Possible I've not heard it (hangs head).

Elegy & Five Bridges I know the best, preferred Bridges but not hugely enamoured of either at the time. I do have very fond memories of my mate who owned them. He was rather into Gentle Giant too - much better! To absent friends.

Live at Fillmore is much better than Elegy

I think you'd enjoy the Refugee album
