Emerson, Lake and Palmer made a song called ‘Oh, My Father’ in 1971, but never released it. It is a song unlike every other ELP song. Keith’s keyboard work is unregonizeable. It is the lead guitar which is on top. It nearly sounds like a ‘placeholder’ for a HELP track (Hendrix, Emerson, Lake & Palmer). Check out the similarities (1m15 seconds in the ELP track versus 15s in the Hendrix track). They are striking. HELP was never to be. Strange though that a perfectly good track ended up in ‘the bottom of some old road cases’.
Manhatten: What guitar instruments did you use on “Oh My Father” also lyrics for the song are hard to find
Lake: I believe I would have used a Gibson J200. This record was never intended for release and only came out because someone discovered it on an old tape in the bottom of some old road cases that I had in storage
