Ah, good call. I was listening to them all day yesterday, and wondered what the "SEE THE SHOW!" topped at.
How about that note at 9:48/9:49? "Ya gotta SEE the show" A4/Bb4?

Got a hold of Greg Lake's solo albums to see if there were any cool performances or notes on them.
WOW, are they bad.
Gary Moore's guitar playing is top-notch though.

Sounds pretty close to fry to me.
So I'm still not entirely sure about this note, but it turns out he hits another G♯1 earlier in the song, and it sounds a lot fuller/stronger. Check it out: http://picosong.com/naDz/

Real wtf note in their song "Brain Salad Surgery" from the album Works Vol. 2.

Not quite sure what that is on the "BRAIN salad surgery". Sounds like a strained C5.

Maybe that's why his voice got destroyed...
I'm actually wondering if this man even knows how to go above C5. I've never heard him use falsetto, not even for a quick C5 or D5. Heck, not even for a 4th octave note....

At least his voice sounds good.

His fourth octave singing is pretty solid, though, for how low his voice seems to be.

Greg's voice

Post  Clem on Thu Jul 11, 2013 4:25 am

Such a nice voice. Really striking and different to a lot of 70s prog singers. He didn't use an excessive range, but his tone was so passionate and mighty. Like Graham Bonnet and David Gilmour created a super 70s voice! ELP are my probably my favourite 3 piece, maybe even more than Rush Shocked

At 3:58 Falsetto harmonies, topping at D5. It's almost definately Greg, as no one else is credited with any vocals, on that album.

I hear no falsetto used there. And I'm not even sure those reach D5.

Btw, I recently bought Steven Wilson's remixed version of Tarkus, and I must say it's done really well. He added a few more tracks, such as an Emerson sung track called "Unknown Ballad" (Which has created controversy as many fans believe it not to be ELP, and Keith Emerson himself says he does not recall recording the track) and this beautiful piece written by Greg Lake called "Oh, My Father", written about his father's then-recent passing.

A beautiful and emotional performance by Greg.

It could be a blended head tone, though Greg never seemed to use that. His higher stuff was generally belting in chest voice, but he got quite a good sound out it, to be fair. However, he struggled to hit C5s, and that top note sounds more than comfortable. Either way, the backing vocals throughout those few seconds are harmonised an octave obove, and definately tops D5. If we are to assume that it wasn't someone else, uncredited, then it's a notable high.

I've re-listened a couple of times, and I still don't hear any D5s. I hear C5 as the highest, but no D5s.

I could swear it tops at D5. But it's your thread, so the call is yours.

I'd rather get other opinions on the note.

I think there actually is a vocal line going Ab4-Bb4-C5-D5 on Tarkus. I can barely hear it on my headphones.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. A harmonised backing vocal line, but it is rather quiet. Another one of these times isolated tracks would be very handy.

I read somewhere that they played a Donovan song live very early on, and I randomly stumbled upon this video.



It's the last song. I'm hearing up to G♯4 and B4. Long sax solo, as well.

edit: but I guess there's another version on a live album.

I would argue that "The Only Way" is his best, as he seems to blend some head resonance in on a few highs, which is rare for him, but gives quite a nice effect in that song. But that's more a matter of opinion. You've got all the best ones in there, so the order isn't as important. Although, "Jerusalem", "Are You Ready, Eddie?", and "In The Court of the Crimson King" also had nice vocals, but I suppose on a top 10 list there's always going to have to be some concessions. Good list overall  Thumb up
