    I like the 3.2 stuff better than the original 3 album which was a big disappointment after ELPowell

    Have been playing this non-stop since I received it last Friday. Great melodies and song arrangements. I also love Robert Berty's voice. Really impressed!

    I didn't realize that this was released on the 12th. I just bought it from iTunes. I'm liking the first song!

    I recently purchased the other 3 live release, "Rockin the Ritz". This was broadcast on WNEW. It's a lot cleaner than the earlier 3 live release, "Live Boston '88", which has a lot of crowd noise, including one guy who shouts "F*ck Yeah" every few minutes. The Ritz show is much tighter than the Boston show.

    Just listened to this today. I think I like this better than The Rules Have Changed, but maybe I'm just ready for this now. Berry's musicianship is crazily impressive; he gets the Emerson 80s sound down (though not so much the organ stuff) and the songs are catchy and powerful.

    I did the same thing. I should look into this release.

    Yes, it's nice to have. I also did the same thing, especially being that I was in attendance at The Sundance on Long Island, NY, on 4/8/1988, six days prior for their Ritz show. I had to be home for The Ritz show so that I could tape it to enjoy after that. I still have the actual working copy of that show on cassette, by the way.

    As a stroke of luck would have it, someone has recently posted a soundboard copy of that complete Sundance show. I just wonder why he/she waited so long in doing so (maybe the soundman or a friend of the soundman). At the time, I was just getting over tonsillitis, and the 3 performance was just what was needed.

    Anyway, here is the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...M1SZg1RTDyl2i0

    Enjoy!

    Frank Cariola’s Sundance. I was there. Recorded the show. Still have the masters. If I recall that was the show where a black rap comedy opened up. They got pelted off the stage.

    Correct, Ken! Not sure as to who had that bright idea!

    Hey Ken,

    Will you be getting more copies of the 3.2 Third Impression CD back in stock soon? Also, will you be getting the Keith Emerson Tribute DVD/CD set in next month?

    Yes, so do I. I will buy album to support the artist, even if I can hear it on Amazon music without buying.

    This new 3.2 CD follows in the footsteps of its predecessor "The rules have changed". Vocals are still very robust and in sync with the bombastic keyboard sound that Robert uses so methodically and is clearly the Keith Emerson legacy he honors so well.
    I was fortunate to see Robert Berry Live at the previous (hopefully not last) Progstock with his 3.2 band that not only performed material from 3, but also ELP and his solo material. 3rd Impression - Highly recommended.

    Thanks! I'll have to dig into this. Still have The Ritz cassette myself. Seems odd that it would surface recently after all this time, but that's pretty cool that it has.

    I guess Frank Cariola. I recall the DJ Johnny Fingers screaming at the audience over the PA.

    Saw one other show at Sundance. Rick Wakeman with John Ford opening up. Excellent show. Made a nice recording of that one as well.

    That is the question. People around me, where I was standing inside The Sundance, were completely confused with this opening act. We all thought it was a total joke.

    I just listened to my copy yesterday. Robert does not fail to impress! This album has a harder edge than the last album with guitar coming more to the front. He's got Emerson's sensibilities down, always respectfully. A hallmark of this album and the last is that the songs take unexpected twists and turns (not so much on the first album, except for maybe Desde La Vida), but it all flows and doesn't feel forced.

    This looks like the last 3.2 project, but I look forward to more original music from Robert.
