Singles review: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Singles (12 x 7″ singles box set)

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - Singles (12 x 7" singles box set)

BMG [Release date 26.08.22] It may be hard to believe that Emerson, Lake & Palmer, progressive rock titans, actually produced singles and -  moreover – some became hits. This splendid box set includes a dozen of them from around the world including such territories as Angola and Portugal. There are a couple of singles from Japan including ‘Fanfare For The Common Man/Brain Salad Surgery’ and several from Germany. The band n… Continue reading

Album review: EMERSON LAKE & PALMER – Out Of This World: Live (1970-1997)

EMERSON & LAKE PALMER - Out Of This World Live 1970-1997

BMG [Release date 29.10.21] Prog legends Emerson Lake & Palmer (ELP) were one of the early super groups (formed from the roots of The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster in 1970) and cemented their legacy in the first half of the 70s. Often overblown, they stripped away much of the blues, soul and psychedelia from rock music, playing classical music like an insane robot. Immensely popular and rightfully so. ELP split at the end of the dec… Continue reading

Album review: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Reissues (Works Vol.1 & 2, Love Beach)

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - Reissues

BMG [Release date 26.05/17] Formed in 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were one of the first progressive rock supergroups, and certainly one of the most successful. Keyboard player, pianist and keen advocate of the Moog Keith Emerson had previously played with The Nice (whose debut widely considered the first ever prog rock album), bassist, guitarist and vocalist Greg Lake had recorded with King Crimson, while drummer Carl Palmer had previously… Continue reading

Album review: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Reissues (2)

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - Trilogy

BMG [Release date 30.09.16] To many Emerson, Lake & Palmer represented the worst excesses of prog rock  – a genre that was destined to have its collective arse kicked in the late-1970s.  This latest tranche of remasters does demonstrate why prog rock got bad press at the extreme end of the spectrum, with a band like ELP who were rumoured to have a roadie whose job was to transport and clean the gigantic £2000 Persian rug on which they… Continue reading

Album review: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER – Reissues

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER - Anthology

BMG [Release date 29.07.16] In a year that has had its disproportionate share of rock/pop casualties, Keith Emerson’s passing was one of the saddest.  And, inevitably, there is an immediate reflection on a long and varied back catalogue. This latest batch of reissues presents us with nothing really new, other than 140gm vinyl versions and updated liner notes.  Indeed they are an excuse to recycle the 2012 Steven Wilson album remixes but w… Continue reading
