Emerson, Lake and Palmer "Pirates" for the first time since about twenty years. Thirteen minutes prog rock cheese with just the best lyrics. What other tune could get away with the line "back you dogs give 'em room to turn"? Pirates, gold, killing people, spending filthy lucre, theres everything to like right there.
 
I have a sound check version of this from the Salle de Parc in Bordeaux 1983, it is fast and furious. I saw them as support to Magazine for their Secondhand Daylight tour at the Manc Apollo in 1979, they all wore burgundy suede Chelsea boots and the audience liked their set very much, was a double edge sword for the main act, warmed up crowd expecting more and better.
