Emerson, Lake, & Palmer

Got my first taste of power trios with Cream, JH Experience & Blue Cheer in the late 60s (and early 70s). Saw ELP numerous times in concert in the 70s and few times in the 90s. I would have to say that I considered Cream & ELP as my all-time favorite power trios (altho' I don't recall ever seeing the former in concert).

Also saw Traffic a few times in concert but never as a trio. Caught Genesis several times (as a trio and in larger configurations). Saw CSN a few times in concert (with and w/o Neil Young & others).
