As mentioned in part one of this series of 40 years of classic rock albums progressive rock was starting to make a move, a couple of pioneers in that genre would be Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson, Greg Lake being a part of both.

Due to the length of most songs and obscurity of the music radio airplay was limited but that didn’t stop fans from jumping on the progressive rock band wagon.

King Crimson formed in 1969 and by 1973 they had been through three personnel changes, “Larks, Tongues in Aspic” was their fifth studio album and produced six tracks that were instrumentals.

The song “Exiles”was in demand at every¬† live performance.
