4 stars This record is a compilation of excellent songs from their first albums: "Trilogy", "Brain salad surgery" and "Works Vol 1 & 2". Notice that the songs are short, so it is a good choice given this constraint. Nevertheless I do not agree with "Peter Gunn", a bland pop synth for the simple minded. "Lucky man" should not belong to the list; one must not take popular for best. This is a good LP for the beginner who looks for catchy and accessible songs, but it does not represent the whole work of ELP, which is also full of complex epic tracks.
