(Glass Onyon) A previously unreleased album by Greg Lake & Geoff Downes titled "Ride The Tiger" has finally seen the light of day with the effort's official release. We were sent the following details:

"Ride the Tiger" contains six songs which the duo wrote together - one went on to became an Asia song and two became ELP songs. Four of these tracks had been released on compilations before, but this is the first time they have been collected together with two previously unreleased tracks plus one alternate mix.

Greg Lake had this to say, "To be honest I thought that these recordings had simply disappeared off the radar until one of my management team, Daniel Earnshaw, reminded me of their existence. My initial reaction was not entirely positive as I generally view many of these re-releases to be a bit tiresome, however, upon hearing these recordings again I immediately identified their value, both in terms of song writing and of musicianship and production. Geoff, of course, is a masterful musician with an instinctive ability to maximise the potential of any song both as a player and as an arranger. His contribution to these recordings is clear for all to see and for me it was a real pleasure to reflect upon our friendship together both personally and as musicians."

Geoff Downes adds, "One of the privileges of my career has been the opportunity to embrace a number of bespoke projects with some of the world's greatest musicians. Greg Lake, of course was at the forefront of the progressive revolution, lead vocalist and bassist with both King Crimson and ELP, bands which literally changed the world, pushing boundaries of excellence and creativity, creating a brand new musical genre from London which would soon captivate the planet. This collection of songs represents a particularly creative period in my life. I'm delighted that Greg and I have rekindled our friendship, and worked together again in order to share this collection with you."

1. Money Talks
2. Love Under Fire
3. Affairs Of The Heart
