Nostaligc Song of the Day: ‘From the Beginning’

Emerson, Lake & Palmer helped popularize “prog” music, or progressive rock, in the 1970s. Also known as “art rock,” this avant-garde approach marrying new technology in music with conceptualized lyrics was used by a number of English bands at the time, including Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and The Moody Blues.

“From the Beginning” was ELP’s highest-charting song. It was part of 1972’s “Trilogy” album, and features Greg Lake’s vocals and acoustic guitar.
