The Nice – America (Live on British TV “How It Is” 1968)

According to Wikipedia, not to be confused with the Australian band Nice. Well that’s clear then. Moving right along …

The Thoughts of Emerlist DavjackThe Nice were an English progressive rock band from the 1960s, known for their blend of rock, jazz and classical music. Their debut album, The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack was released in 1967 to immediate acclaim. It is sometimes considered the first truly progressive rock album. The Nice are also a forerunner of the much more widely-known Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

The Nice consisted initially of keyboardist Keith Emerson, bassist/vocalist Lee Jackson, guitarist David O’List, more commonly known as “Davy” and drummer Ian Hague, quickly replaced by Brian Davison. The band took their name from Steve Marriott‘s slang term for being high, a term he used in the song “Here Come the Nice”.
