Former Ringo Starr All-Starr Band member Greg Lake released a new live CD "Songs Of A Lifetime" late last month on Esoteric Antenna/Manticore Records, according to his record company. "Songs Of A Lifetime" documents Lake's musical history from his beginnings with King Crimson to work with Emerson Lake & Palmer and his later solo career.
Song titles on the album include "21st Century Schizoid Man", "From The Beginning", "Still....You Turn Me On", "Lend Your Love To Me Tonight", "C'est la Vie" and "Karn Evil 9", as well as homages to Elvis Presley and The Beatles and Curtis Mayfield.
The CD release coincides with the upcoming release of Lake's autobiography, “Lucky Man,” though the two projects are not the same, the record company says. The autobiography will be a narrative of Lake's experiences from childhood to the present, including never before revealed details of his life. It will be released both as an audio book read by the author and a complete print edition. Both are expected by the end of the year.
Lake will also be touring the United States, Japan, Europe, South America and Canada. The dates will be announced shortly.
Lake was a member of the seventh Ringo Starr All-Starr Band in 2001. That group, that edged toward a more progressive sound, also included Ian Hunter, Howard Jones, Roger Hodgson and Sheila E. A concert from that tour, recorded at the Rosemont Theatre in Rosemont, Ill., is available on Concert Vault.
