Bloatermog Fanfare For The Common Man: Yes, the Emerson, Lake & Palmer rendition, for no other reasons than Greg Lake was born and brought up about 2 miles from here in Oakdale, Poole Dorset, and Keith Emerson used to play Bournemouth's fave late 60's / early 70's smoky blues club. The Ritz, with The Nice, (with Lemmy as one of the roadies), and later with the above trio at the now demolished Bournemouth Winter Gardens. Also, it is a pleasantly uplifting tune, apt to cheer us in these stormy Winter times.
