Greg Lake Releases Songs Of A Lifetime
Greg Lake has released live solo album Songs Of A Lifetime via Esoteric Antenna / Manticore Records.
The ELP icon recorded the work during his experimental solo tour under the same title last year.
It documents his personal musical history, featuring songs that have meant the most to him through his career.
Lake says: “From time to time during the writing of my autobiography, these songs would crop up that were in some way crucial or extremely important in the development of my career.
“They weren’t always songs I had written myself, but sometimes songs that had been written and performed by other artists. I realised that what they actually represented was the journey that I had shared together with the audience over all these years.
“Behind these songs there were often stories to be told – and it occurred to me that the same must be true for the audience as well. It was then that I thought of doing a series of very small intimate concerts, where I could perform the songs and exchange stories with the audience.
“In a way we were reliving a time when the music we shared together really became part of our identity, and became the backdrop to our lives – a sort of tapestry, I suppose.”
Lake’s autobiography will be released this year in ebook and print formats, and he’s planning to tour Songs Of A Lifetime across Europe, Japan, and North and South America.
