From the Beginning is a song written by Greg Lake and performed by the progressive rock trio Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It was released on their 1972 album Trilogy. It is driven by an acoustic guitar line with layers of electric guitar (both rhythm and lead), electric bass guitar, and sung by Lake, with some backing on drums (played by Carl Palmer with tympani mallets and without cymbals), and with a distinctive closing synthesizer solo from Keith Emerson, accompanied by overdubbed random synthesizer-generated effects. It hit #39 in the US and was their highest charting single. The song was covered by the heavy metal band Dokken and Czech folk rock band Marsyas, albeit under a different name (Studená koupel) with a Czech version of the lyrics.
From the Beginning performed by Greg Lake during 2005 tour.

Bergo '45 - Song of the Week: This is a weekly dive into the musical mind of Bergo '45. At the start of each week, a new song is chosen by a different member of the band as part of our Song of the Week Series. Every selection made is one of many ingredients mixed into the band's collective cauldron of influences and generally speaking, all fall into genres under that great incestuous umbrella known as Rock And Roll. Take a chair, grab a towel and give it a listen... S.O.T.W.

It gets me every time." - Devon Beuschel "The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys" by Traffic The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys (1971) Steve Winwood - Jim Capaldi Island Records Traffic were an English rock band whose members came from the West Midlands. The group formed in April 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason. They began as a psychedelic rock group whose early singles were influenced by The Beatles and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron, reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music. Their first three singles were "Paper Sun", "Hole in My Shoe", and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush". After disbanding in 1969, during which time Winwood joined Blind Faith, Traffic reunited in 1970 to release the critically acclaimed album John Barleycorn Must Die. The band's line-up varied from this point until they disbanded again in 1975, although a partial reunion, with Winwood and Capaldi, took place in 1994. In 2004, Traffic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. © Island Records

The Best Songs Of 1970
Wooden Ships is a famous song by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. It was on their album So Far, and was one of their greatest hits. The lyrics are as follows: Stills: If you smile at me, I will understand 'Cause that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language. Crosby: I can see by your coat, my friend, you're from the other side, There's just one thing I got to know, Can you tell me please, who won? Stills: Say, can I have some of your purple berries? Crosby: Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now, haven't got sick once. Stills: Probably keep us both alive. Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy, Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be, Silver people on the shoreline, let us be, Talkin' 'bout very free and easy... Horror grips us as we watch you die, All we can do is echo your anguished cries, Stare as all human feelings die, We are leaving - you don't need us. Go, take your sister then, by the hand, lead her away from this foreign land, Far away, where we might laugh again, We are leaving - you don't need us. And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm, Out of the south over my shoulder, Guess I'll set a course and go...

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER were a British progressive rock supergroup formed in London in 1970. The group consisted of keyboardist Keith Emerson, singer, guitarist, and producer Greg Lake, and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer. They were one of the most popular progressive rock bands in the 1970s. This great classic song is from the Album "Trilogy" (1972). "Trilogy" reached No. 2 in the UK and No. 5 in the US. "From the Beginning", an acoustic ballad featuring an extended synthesizer solo, was released as a single which reached No. 39 in the US. The alternate version shown here has a totally different moog synthesizer solo at the ending. "FROM THE BEGINNING" There might have been things I missed But don't be unkind It don't mean I'm blind Perhaps there's a thing or two I think of lying in bed I shouldn't have said But there it is You see, it's all clear You were meant to be here From the beginning Maybe I might have changed And not been so cruel Not been such a fool Whatever was done is done I just can't recall It doesn't matter at all You see, it's all clear You were meant to be here From the beginning....
