Notes from a great ELP fan:'s an amazingly important show in ELP history (and I would argue rock history) not just because it's a rare recording of the orchestral tour, but because it's the very day that the orchestra was dropped to avoid complete financial ruin.  It's a bittersweet day in ELP history.  I actually know someone on the web who was at the show.  In fact she was a groupie (I believe) who was on tour with the band and I've read her memories of that day, going out for Chinese food with the violinists who just learned it was over.  (they actually played with the band 3 times in July in NYC and once in Montreal to end the tour).  After this show, the group took a week off to practice and continue on with a three piece.  I was thinking of getting her to write something about that, although I think she's still close to people in and with the band, so I don't know if she'd do it or not.
