4 stars This video obteined from an early Belgian TV presentation shows us the beggining of the band. The presentation is just 55 minutes long but the material included is exellent both in image and sound. Since this video is from 1970 , ELP just based their show on their only record at the time. The songs were a bit longer with loads of solo spots. Apart from the ones included in their debut we can also enjoy Rondo (knifes included!!) Nutrocker and a frenetic drum solo by Carl Palmer ( Which is different from Tank)

Apart from the drum solo , my favourite number is the extended version of Take a Pebble which includes a longer acoustic medley by Lake.

I can't consider this record a masterpiece because I think it should have some extra material. But we can't be hard on that aspect considering this is a non official release. I find this Masters from the Vauts DVD to be superior to Pictures of an Exhibition and really essential for any progressive rock fan who wants to see the band at their early days. These are going to be the biggest and brightest 4 stars I ll ever award a release with.
