thanks for that.

but i somehow missed west side story. i have my gaps, mwwhaha

An optimistic release indeed. Wonder - was Emerson's burning of the flag a publicity stunt for the single as much as a protest?

One of the very few musicals I've enjoyed.


Keith Emerson -the man who thought 'My music will put an end to war and bring peace to mankind in the 21st Century'

What he actually achieved was reaching people via the internet and getting them to check out West Side Story on laser disc or streaming service if they have not seen it for a while, or ever.
