Greg Lake's first band to gain recognition on the London scene was The Shame, whose
ad for their single, "Don't Go 'Way Little Girl," appeared in the popular British music
magazine MELODY MAKER on Sept. 30, 1967. Just a few years later, Greg Lake, along
with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer would receive several of MELODY MAKER's prestigious
awards, including "World's Best Band." Source: Wayne Blagdon. Wayne graciously combed
his collection of MELODY MAKER magazines and submitted all the Greg Lake-related materials
therein to the LotL archives. All MELODY MAKER items in this gallery are from Wayne.
