The 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[according to whom?] the first true progressive rock album. The Nice are also a forerunner of the much more widely known Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
