K ronomyth 12.1: I WOULD LIKE A SECOND ELP’ING. When the future didn’t arrive in 1984, the past came flooding back to fill its place, including a band thought lost to the tarpits of time: ELP. (In coming through the time machine, the letter P pulled Cozy Powell along with them since the original P for Palmer was already transported in A for Asia.) To my amazement, ELP came through the time machine clean and pristine with “Touch And Go,” their pomp and majesty intact. Unlike the retrofitted Yes, Emerson and Lake return to their original height and haunts with only slight concessions made to tiresome modernity. The single doesn’t edit/extend the remarkably succinct original, though the 12-inch adds a version of “The Locomotion,” which I’m informed by Miles Husoy is the Goffin/King track we all know and loathe.
