SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
2 stars This must rank as one of my worst concert I ever saw, but I got to visit the Olympic stadium for the same price so all was not lost. I will speak mostly of the concert since I was there in this review and I never owned the record , but everytime I heard it at a friend's house I was slightly annoyed because of the rotten souvenir. OK, sure enough, the concert setting was grandiose enough with the Big O stadium filled to an impressive capacity. By the time they got to this concert , late in the tour (I wonder if the Montreal concert was not the final one of the tour) , they had brought back the Orchestra for a few gigs after having dropped it for themiddle gigs. But clearly the concert organization was shoddy as far as the sound was concerned: Echoes , Feedbacks etc.... All these plagued a concert that was also concentrating (logically) on the later albums, so even the track selection was shoddy also. Adding to the fact that E and L were acting like superstars and not communicating with the public. Nice to hear the Peter Gunn theme, though!

I think that Harmonium was to share the bill with them but there was a fight about who should open so they dropped out . As Harmonium was on top of their game and playing at home and regarding the garbage ELP was putting out at the time , they could have headlined it, without doubt.

For die-hard fans!!!

3 stars They welcomed back their friends for one more show to sing of recent Works and twice-told tales the "Knife Edge" might have grown a little dull and "Peter Gunn" unsheathed to small avail but living legends call the enemy god draw forth the "Pictures..." from their proud museum lament that "c'est la vie" for every bard and please the stalwart souls who came to see them. But thinking that the gift might be too poor. The show was double stuffed in ninety three with seven extra songs at double score. That seems to be the one to own (to me).

3 stars I don`t think this is crap. The recording was done in a Stadium, so is not very good, because it lacks the acoustics of other venues designed for music concerts. The mixing is also not very good (it was done by Emerson). But I like these live versions of "C`est la Vie", "The Enemy God", "Knife Edge" and "Pictures at an Exhibition". Emerson`s "Piano Concerto" is also good, but the sound of the orchestra is marred by the bad acoustics of the place. "Knife Edge" has a very good orchestra arrangement, the same as "C`est la Vie". The end of "Pictures..." ("The Great Gates of Kiev") was played with a lot of energy. The best version of this concert to buy is obviously "Woks Live". This one L.P. album called "In Concert" is out of print. This concert was recorded during E.L.P.`s last tour of the seventies. They used the orchestra and the chorus for some days, but they had to do finish the tour without the orchestra and the chorus because it was so expensive to be on the road with them.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This live album is a further contractually obligated release, from the 'Works' Tour of 1977, the tour with the over-blown budget, complete with 3 semi-trailers worth of gear in tow, and a massive orchestra, but boy, did they draw a crowd !! The album, recorded at Olympic Stadium, Montreal, features only about a half of the entire set, of which a full-length video exits of. Opening with a Synth 'Fanfare', this 51 second intro leads into the 'Peter Gunn' theme - its main feature being the catchy riff that most people are familiar with, but a bit of a 'goofy' choice of song, I think. Emerson and his 'new-found friend' - the Yamaha GX-1 synth, suits the piece perfectly. It has some interesting sounds and effects to it, but ultimately sounds rather 'cheezy'. Still, Keith has his Moog Modular unit present. Phew !! 'Tiger In A Spotlight' is a cool track, but its melodies and key changes have been done many times before, by more 'standard' rock bands. And now for Greg Lake in a spotlight with his lovely 12 string ballad 'C'est La Vie' - a very pretty song actually, with the French vibe helped along by Emerson's Accordion solo. 'The Enemy God' is an ELP treatment of an excerpt from a suite by the classical composer, Prokofiev. This is quite a storming version which has a dramatic feel to it, and halfway through Emerson's Hammond rings through brightly - the first truly impressive song here. Nice to hear a fully orchestrated version of 'Knife Edge', from the wonderful debut album, always an exciting listen. I have to say that Lake's 8-string Bass Guitar has a very 'spikey' tone to it, and the overall sound of the album is quite 'thin'. I admire Palmer's Drums and Percussion playing around this time (probably the best trait of the mis-understood 'Love Beach' album also) but he really stretches out by creating elaborately decorated arrangements for his instruments - quite a busy performer in other words. Side 2 starts with the dramatic end section of Emerson's 'Piano Concerto No 1', not a bad piece of music, but perhaps comes off a little too serious and sophisticated for most prog-heads. The surprise on this album comes in the form of the 2nd half of the 'Pictures at an Exhibition' suite, 15 minutes of awesome Prog, complete with the up-dated equipment the band were using, and the added sonorities of the orchestra. This period wasn't the best time for the band, but I'm glad this recording exists. 3.5 stars.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Recorded in Montreal's Olympic Stadium, In Concert was basically a contract-fulfilling album since the band had already broken up prior to this 1979 release. There really isn't anything spectacular about this album and for all intents and purposes, one might just consider it a supplement to the two previous live albums ELP released (Pictures at an Exhibition and Welcome Back My Friends...).

Many of the selections are forgettable, but there are still some charming numbers like the cover of Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn, The Enemy God, and Knife Edge. Emerson's piano concerto piece is quite a sleepy affair. The recording is about average.

Again, nothing spectacular. Just an average live album with so-and-so selections from a group that should have known better than to harp this onto their fans. Only the die-hards and collectors need to seek this out. Otherwise, I would recommend getting their re-released and repackaged Works Live, which also contains much junk, but at least has some of the better numbers from the Works tour. Two stars.

2 stars I do not recommend that you buy this album. Unless you are a completist, there is no reason to purchase this. Everything on here is on the later expanded release, under the title Works Live. Second, this album has never been remixed. Again, buy the remixed versions on Works Live.

The best thing I can say about this album is that none of the tracks appear on the great ELP album, Welcome Back My Friends.... But there is some value here. The live version of The Enemy God Dances With The Black Spirits is worth hearing, as is the excerpt form Emerson's Piano Concerto No. 1. Other than that, there's some great keyboard work in a speedy version of Pictures At An Exhibition.

And why didn't they include Pirates?

I might have given this three stars, but with a better, longer version available, it's for collectors only.

1 stars A live album is by definition fan material. It's got to be something really special to motivate me for more then 3 stars. But this affair from ELP is an insult, even to their most ardent fans.

For a band that filled such huge venues and disposed of such budgets, the recording quality is downright awful, cheap and careless. The performances are possible worse. The Peter Gunn theme is fun of course but you sure have that one already on one or other compilation. The two other pieces I can bear to listen to are C'est La Vie and The Enemy God.

Like most of the albums in my prog vaults, I bought this one as a second hand vinyl at the end of the 80's. Back then, you could buy tons of records because people started to replace their vinyl catalogue by the crappy first generation CD's that were being released back then. Anyone remembers the trashy 1988 CD releases of Pawn Hearts and In The Court?

Anyway, I am digressing, even second-hand it must have cost me around 3 beers (international currency) and even counting how cheap those are around here (you get about 3 Belgian beers for one USA beer), it wasn't even worth that little investment.

3 stars Actually I'm not a big fan of live records. The possibilities for them to be good is in my opinion smaller than usually. One thing that could go wrong of course is the sound quality. The audience's noise could be a nice background but the music most be heard. My biggest problem though with liv ... (read more)

2 stars The gig in Paris from the Works tour if I am not mistaken. This forty three minutes long album takes us through some of their best music and it is a good live album.
