"Love Beach" by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Absolutely stunning.  A work of sheer genius.  Utterly compelling.  Truely gorgeous.

No, I'm not talking about the music on prog giants Emerson Lake and Palmers 1978 album.  In fact, I have no idea what it sounds like.   I don't get paid for this, y'know.

But who could resist ELP looking like they'd rocked up on a tropical island looking for a Bee Gees fancy dress party?  Lot of kudos must go to Carl Palmer's combination of high pants, hairy chest and male camel toe.  Though, being a drummer he does have to work harder to get the ladies.

Apparently, hard core ELP fans who aren't so keen refer to this album as 'Love Bitch' (well, that's what it says on Wikipedia anyway, and that's a good enough source for Daily Mirror reporters, so it's good enough for me too).
Hahahaha, see what they did there?  Love Bitch!  Because 'bitch' sounds a bit like 'beach'!  Even more so if you say it in a cod-arabic accent.  Yeah, prog albums and casual racism dance hand in hand on my blog.

Anyway, here's an MP3 for you to get a real feel for the album (that's what people go to music blogs for, right?)



  1. Most go straight to the music without reading the entry - as might I if you persist with references to male camel toes.


  2. High pants/camel toe dood is Keith Emerson.

  3. That's some nasty ass camel toe. On a chick yes, on a dude, NO.
