4 stars Unfortunately I've never seen ELP 'live' so I have to ease this pain with live footage, for example this great registration from the famous Montreux Jazz Jamboree in '97. The vocals from Greg Lake sound a bit less warm and powerful but in general ELP is still very impressive on stage: solid bass play and fine acoustic guitar from Greg Lake, dynamic drums from Carl Palmer and Keith Emerson with his sensational 'stage antics' on his Hammond organ ("Rondo"), the use of the hugh Modular Moog synthesizer ("Tarkus/Pictures..") and the impressive piano solo on "Creole Dance". Fun and skills during the catchy song "Honky Tonk Train Blues" and a splendid final medley including "Fanfare For The Common Man", "Rondo", "Carmina Burana", Carl Palmer's Drum Solo" and "Toccaca In D Minor". This DVD shows a more enthusiastic sounding band than the '92 concert in The Royal Albert Hall. Another great ELP DVD release but I want more, like the full Pictures At An Exhibition Concert from the Japanese laser-disc concert!
