And I don't believe we've had any Mellotron. Here's Court of the Crimson King, probably the most iconic mellotron this side of the Moody Blues. That album if my favorite of all of Greg Lake's.

Ever since I saw the scene where he and the Raelettes improv'd this song live in the movie "Ray," this song has captivated me. For anyone who's ever dreamed about going back in time to be witness to particular moments (who hasn't), this one is on my very, very short wish list.

Brownsville, Pennsylvania, outside of Pittsburgh. Venue: unknown. Time: Wee hours, around 1:00 a.m. or 2:00 a.m. Set list exhausted, but still on the clock under the evening's contract.

Ray to the Raelettes: "Listen, I'm going to fool around and y'all just follow me."

and then...magic.

Mrs. SVC and I saw American Graffiti. Four teenage girls sat in front of us. Several times we laugh out loud at scenes you had to have lived to understand fully. Those four girls kept looking at us and then the screen. They never could figure out what was so funny.
