3 stars So the question is 'Do You Want ELP music played by a guitar based band and no keyboards?'. If so then this is the place to be. After ELP's last split in 1999 Carl decided to form his own band and went off to play (mostly) small venues around England.Dave Marks (bass) and Shaun Baxter(guitar) were recruited, both (I think) coming from a music teaching background.Very skilled players and they needed to be.I've seen this line up on both tours and have to say that the CD's don't really capture their power for some reason.Either the sound is too clean or perhaps the recorded peformances were'nt their best..or perhaps its difficult to translate the live experience onto record.Shame really but that said both discs are perfectly listenable and would certainly be of interest to ELP/Carl Palmer fans. However I would recommend saving your money instead for the DVD 'Live In Europe' which is more enjoyable..and you have visuals!
