    In response to GreginMeffa's comment:
    [QUOTE]

    Galina Vishnevskya - Libera me (War Requiem, Benjamin Britten)

    Ian Gillan - Garden of Gethsemane (I only want to say, Jesus Christ Superstar)

    Greg Lake - Lend Your Love to Me Tonight (Works Vol. 1)

    Jon Andersen - Close to the Edge

    Janis Joplin - Summertime

    [/QUOTE]

    Great call on the JC Superstar performance by Gillan.  I was thinking of that song too.  As you probably know, Gillan's piercing screams on Child In Time had a lot to do with him landing the gig on the JC Superstar album.
