PROG REVIEWER
4 stars As Keith will confirm in the interview available at the end of these Wight tracks, it was their SECOND show. Actually, six days earlier, ELP appeared in Plymouth (Guildhall). Lake even recalls that they were paid 500 £ !

Lake tells us that the band did not had a long time to rehearse. Four to six weeks in total and there you go for the Isle Of Wight music festival ! They were not particularly stressed since they were already experienced musicians.

Palmer recalls that they played around 3:30 PM (they were far from the top of the bill). Actually, they were the third band to go on stage. After "Spirit" : you know the ones who were at the origin of "Stairway To Heaven" and ... Mungo Jerry ! The rest of the day will look rather appealing : John Sebastian, Free, Sly & The Family Stones, The Who, Joni Mitchell and Ther Doors. Rather impressive, I must say.

They were already in the recording sessions from their album and several tracks were already under construction. "Barbarian" and "Take A Pebble" are two of them. Although "Barbarian" still need to be polished, this version of "Take A Pebble" is pretty well acomplished.

According to Plamer, they decided to play the suite "Pictures At An Exhibition" because Emerson already was interested in this work during "The Nice" period. They had already rehearsed it quite extensively but did not consider to play it live because of its complexity. I guess that since they did not have a lot of numbers to chose from, this very long number (over thirty-five minutes) was the central part of this live set.

Emerson had the idea of bying two antique canons and to use them to punctuate PAAE at the Isle Of Whight. He still needed to test them out. He did pick-up London Heathrow to do so ! Just before showtime, he asked one roddie to double the charge. So the explosion WAS huge.

"Rondo" is a bit noisy, with no real structure. It sounds a bit as a jam. It was the last number of this short set. As an encore, they will play "Nutrocker" which will be later on be included as the finale of "PAAE". I have always loved this song. Great track.

From this show, John Peel, a popular BBC music journalist called ELP's performance at the Isle of Wight, "a tragic waste of time, talent and electricity."

I do not agree with him. I strongly believe that this live performance is precursory of their legendary live sets. To have reached such a complicity in a so short period of time is quite remarkable. This is a piece of prog music history. Therefore, I add one star to the deserved three stars rating.

4 stars When I watched the DVD of Pain of Salvation BE live where I knew that the performance was made a year before the concept album BE was released, my memory reminded to ELP's "Live at The Isle of Wight Festival 1970". The two are not similar in style but the two have made similar thing: doing a concert without yet releasing the songs being played during the show. In this concert ELP performed what (in the next months) would be coming out in the next studio album of ELP. So, the crowd who attended the festival was not aware about ELP's music by the time they saw the show. The show itself was a quite theatrical in nature with the dynamic stage acts of Keith Emerson. The festival was held for icons of 70s music like Jim Morison and The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Who.

Knowing such background one should not expect good recording quality of this CD. But for me, that's okay. The recording technology at the time was quite primitive in a sense of providing the best for prog music like ELP.

As far as live concert concern, I would say that songs which were performed by the band during the show were really good especially with improvisations on Keith Emerson Hammond as well as Carl Palmer's dynamic drumming that really colored the show. At the end of the CD there is a discussion about the festival.

As this is a very important stepping stone for one of prog rock legendary bands on planet earth, I would suggest you to own the CD even though the CD sonic quality is not quite good. Well, you might consider it as a documentary album. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

3 stars ELP from the beginning

It is of course now a matter of prog history that ELP played their first gig together at the Isle of Wight festival. OK, so the pedants among us may point out that they actually played a warm up gig prior to that, but in the true spirit of overblown pomposity which goes with the band, let's allow history on this occasion to be bent slightly in favour of folklore.

At the time, the band did not have their extensive catalogue to select from, so there's no "Karn evil 9" here for example. Indeed the focal point of this album is a full rendition of "Pictures at an exhibition", a piece which would later be released in live format as an official album. The recording used for that album came from a gig in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK; this version thus predating it.

The relative shortage of rehearsed material is evidenced by the inclusion of a piece by The Nice and a cover of the 1960's single "Nutrocker" which is itself a classical interpretation. There are a couple of early versions of tracks which would appear on the first album, but clearly that album was still in development at the time.

All that said, the quality of both the sound and the performance here are remarkably good. There is a raw energy to pieces such as the opening "Barbarian" which would stay with the band for a few years at least. "Take a pebble" is the only other song which would appear on an ELP studio album. As with "The Barbarian", this version is pretty much the finished article, the smoother tones of the song offering the audience the chance to chill.

The rendition of "Pictures.." is also pretty much as it appeared on the live album of that name, and thus represents an astonishingly ambitious work for such an early point in the band's career. The early synth sounds may now come across as dated, but at the time they would have been highly original and somewhat exciting. The track concludes with the now legendary cannon fire, which (allegedly) destroyed half of the Isle of Wight.

The version of "Rondo" is heavily abbreviated, while "Nutrocker" is allowed to run on a bit longer. In order to pad out the CD, a six minute interview is included, with the band looking back from more recent times.

Quite what the audience would have made of ELP is a matter for speculation. Bear in mind that this recording is taken from a music festival which featured a diverse range of artists. ELP's blend of the classics, improvisations and progressive rock may have gone down well with those who were familiar with combos such as The Nice, but others must have been mystified by what they witnessed.

The main attraction with this album is that it serves as a historical document. The music is contains has been performed many times since and better live recordings of everything here are available. This is though where it all began for ELP, it is akin to witnessing the birth of a new planet.

3 stars This is a very good live album in the early phase of ELP's career. It is better seen than heard but overall the raw quality is captured well featuring some of the most amazing performances of the group. The Barbarian is certainly a wonderful rendition from the debut, Take A Pebble is one of my favourites from the group and this version is stuning running for about 12 minutes. Of course the main event is the multi movement suite of Pictures At An Exhibition clocking about 35 minutes. This is followed after the cannons boom almost blowing up the stage, with encore pieces Rondo and Nutrocker, crowd pleasers these days but it was all new to the crowd back in the 70s.

Once again I recommend the DVD over the CD but it is still a wonderful concert that has since become infamous and created a hyped interest in this new insanely brilliant super group.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Bit of a problem this DVD as it only features about 10 minutes of live footage (the BEEB turned off the camera's after that) so what should have been an interesting document of an historic event (the birth of the greatest prog rock supergroup) is somewhat tarnished. If you can pick this up for a fiver and you are a completionist (and massive ELP fan) then its worth having but otherwise best avoided. Instead you should get the deluxe edition of Pictures At An Exhibition which has a cleaned up version of the Isle Of Wight performance and other goodies. About 1.5 stars rounded up as I'm a fan.

1 stars I guess you had to be there: I am sad that this didn't remain a bootleg, as it kind of tarnishes my image of what this show actually sounded like.
