    I'm sure you just did a ctrl-c, ctrl-v on this....but I think you'll find this to be Emerson, Lake and Powell. Carl Palmer didn't rejoin ELP until '92.

    Nice catch! I edited the post to make the change. Now while it's on my mind I'm going to see if I have "Touch And Go" on any CD compilations to listen to.

    Yes, popular music is MUCH worse today! I pray that Hip Hop dies soon!
