: : : What is the origin of the phrase:" Welcome to the show that never ends." ? Please email any ideas to my email account also please.

: : In a previous life I was a recording engineer and, for my sins, worked on all of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's albums (I could tell stories that would frighten livestock). Anyway, I recall, and at that volume its hard not to recall, a line from their show's opening song - "Welcome my friends to the show that never ends". I've not much doubt that Greg Lake nicked this from somehwere else but just maybe he coined it himself.

: Including "Pictures At An Exhibition"? It's a very brave man that's prepared to admit this.

Yes, 'fraid so.
