Saw them live for that tour in fall of 1973 at Boston Garden, right balcony. half way down floor. Excellent show and one of the best sounding for the old Garden. Lake had two bass amps with alternating slow pulsating blue lights. He and Emerson stood on beautiful Persian rugs. Palmer had a huge intricate kit with hundreds of percussives, and he used them all. Emerson's automated moving Moog modular at the end of Brain Salad turned itself toward the audience and did the speed-up sequence with a wonderful flash and boom at the end.
