Emerson Lake & Palmer biography
Emerson, Lake & Palmer

ELP revolutionized the 70's rock scene by introducing a new line-up format. This fact really mattered due to each musician's geniality and unlimited talent that, put together, generated a level of music never achieved by anybody else as of yet. All of the musicians came from established bands before joining forces together: Greg LAKE came from KING CRIMSON, Carl PALMER came from ATOMIC ROOSTER, and Keith EMERSON came from THE NICE.

They explored their capabilities to an extreme, even with the technology limitations of the early 70's, breaking ground, setting the new parameters for a new vein in the english pop music (at the time) which would be called progressive music. ELP released 10 outstanding albums during the 70's, and after a long break, they got back in the 90's with a new approach, but still making good music. In 1986 Cozy POWELL replaced PALMER and they put together EMERSON, LAKE and POWELL, a good effort as well.

They've pushed their ambitions over-the-edge. On "Tarkus" the title suite was an inventive and edgy suite revolving around jazzy textures. Their most popular album "Brain Salad Surgery", was their most grandiose and refined. Next, the more adventurous listener might try "Trilogy" or ELP's self-titled first album. In my opinion, these four albums form the core of ELP's best material. Other good ELP albums include "Pictures at an Exhibition", their provocative, fiery and intense take on a classical work. and "Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends", a triple-live album (now on double-CD) with some absolutely stunning playing.


Being that some albums belong to a different band with only two members of ELP, we have to make this addition:


Emerson, Lake & Powell

Emerson, Lake & Powell, often abbreviated to ELPowell, were an offshoot of a classic prog band Emerson, Lake & Palmer with Cozy Powell taking over the drumming duites in place of Carl Palmer which released one self-titled album in 1986.

After releasing Love Beach in 1978 Emerson, Lake & Palmer became silent for a couple of years until Emerson and Lake met during summer 1985 inspired by Jim Lewis, a vice-pr...

Emerson Lake & Palmer Symphonic Prog

Review by TCat

5 stars This is the debut album from this supergroup of stellar musicians. This was to become the outlet for Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer to showcase their musicianship. But, at it's peak, it was more than anything a spotlight for Emerson's spectacular keyboard playing and composing. As you listen to this album, which has been reviewed plenty of times here already, you will notice that everyone gets to shine, but the balance of the spotlight is tilted quite heavily to Emerson, which is fine. His talent has inspired countless musicians and has influenced many people to explore other avenues of music that they normally would not have explored.

This album is amazing, especially for a debut album. There is quite a mix of classically inspired rock. The mix of sounds you get here should not be too surprising because of the talent. You start off with "The Barbarian" with the full band doing their take on a Bartok composition from 1911; "Allegro Barbaro". After this somewhat bombastic instrumental where each band member shows off their talent, an epic track named "Take a Pebble" follows. This track has vocals from the amazing voice of Greg Lake. The sections where there is singing is performed by full band, but the very long instrumental break is surprisingly acoustic piano through most of it with a short break for an acoustic guitar solo and a return to the piano with drums joining in eventually. This is a very nice surprise because the sound is amazing and anyone who knows keyboards will be blown away by Emerson's playing. "Knife Edge" is another harder edged song again with full band and vocals and is very progressive. It is based on the first movement of Leo? Janáček's Sinfonietta. with a organ solo during the instrumental break that follows Bach's Allamande from the French Suite in D minor.

Following this you get two long instrumentals. The first being a suite called "The Three Fates" which is definitely another chance for Emerson to show off, of which I have no complaint. This is one of my favorite ELP tracks and probably one of the least known. You get a very cool organ solo on the first movement, and nice piano solo on the 2nd movement, and then the piano gets joined by drums and bass for the third. This is a very progressive number that always gets my heart pounding. This also demonstrates that Emerson is not only an amazing player, but an outstanding composer also. Next is "Tank" which is a full band instrumental which spotlights Carl Palmer this time. This is another excellent instrumental with a completely different feel from the last track and a very excellent drum solo in the middle which is not stretched out to a never-ending length. Palmer shares the spotlight with Emerson not only with the instruments but with the composition also. Great stuff. The album ends with the popular Lake folk rock ballad "Lucky Man" which features his vocals and guitar and ends with Emerson on synth that was overdubbed on the end so that everyone would know (on the radio) that this is not a Lake solo. Good song, but not very indicative of the rest of their sound and I'm sure a lot of people were surprised when they heard the song on the radio, bought the album and heard something they were not expecting. But it worked for the band and made them hugely popular and that popularity continued for several years.

Anyway, this is an excellent album that introduced a lot of people to the challenging music of progressive rock. In that way, it is essential in that it helped bring a lot of rock lovers around to becoming interested in classical music and a more sophisticated style of popular music. The importance of this album in rock music can not be denied. ELP would go on to produce some other great albums and some trashy ones too, but their influence in progressive and popular music is still felt today. Essential album. 5 stars.

Review by brydon10

3 stars I put off listening to this album for a long time. The cover art is terrible, and the reviews are generally negative. When I finally listened to it, I was pleasantly surprised, there is some good music here.

Tracks 1-5 are pretty poppy and generic, not terrible but not very interesting. Track 6 "Canario" is quite a nice little instrumental transposed from Fantasia Para Un Gentilhombre.

Track 7 "Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentleman" is a 20 minute suite. This piece is quite good all the way through, I've listened to it multiple times now and it really grows on you. This is the saving grace for the album and in my opinion a hidden ELP gem.

In the end, "Canario" and especially "Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentleman" make this album a worthwhile listen.

Live at the Mar Y Sol Festival '72
Emerson Lake & Palmer Symphonic Prog

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The Mar Y Sol Festival took place in Puerto Rico in April of 1972. The accounts of the media who were there suggest that this festival was not a success pointing to several accidental deaths along with a murder. Also the promoter had to sneak out of the country before the festival was over with the police looking for him. BLACK SABBATH was cancelled due to the fact they couldn't get them to the venue on time due to the traffic. Along with ELP the festival boasted Alice Cooper, The Faces, The Allman Brothers, Osibisa, Mahavishnu Orchestra along with many other bands taking part. We get the whole performance here from ELP, so just under 80 minutes of great live music with good sound quality.

I have to mention here that ELP has never been a band I appreciated a whole lot although I love their debut. So imagine my surprise at how much I like this album. There's not the silliness here and the playing is incredible to say the least, but I just love how this sounds. Listening to this recording feels like a meeting with an old friend which again completely surprised me. And I really like how prominant the bass is but then all three guys were at the top of their game here.

The recording starts with a passionate announcement of the band "Here they are, from England, Emerson...Lake...and Palmer!" to a huge ovation. The crowd was really into this and one man who was there suggests that they were the highlight of the festival. They start with "Hoedown" but without the country vibe(thankyou). That familiar organ sound kicks it off with a full sound in tow. Check out the bass after 2 minutes. The synths replace the organ but not for long. An excellent uptempo instrumental. "Tarkus" opens with Keith I believe announcing "Okay we'd like to play something your probably familiar with, there's a picture of an armadillo and this is called "Tarkus", thankyou." This is my favourite track on here and it clocks in at just under 23 minutes. Just a killer song with Emerson leading the way. Vocals before 2 1/2 minutes as it settles down. So good! Love the instrumental section starting around 6 minutes then the vocals return a minute later. An interesting vocal section starting before 13 minutes with guitar. They change gears before 17 minutes as the crowd cheers. Keyboards galore follow along with upfront bass.

"Take A Pebble" is a change of pace after the furious ending of "Tarkus". With Lake singing I did think of KING CRIMSON. Nice piano solo around 3 minutes. It doesn't take long for the crowd to recognize that the next song is "Lucky Man". Up next is "Piano Improvisation" and it's just that for close to 10 minutes. I like when it turns jazzy before 4 minutes. Vocals actually arrive just before it ends.

"Pictures At An Exhibition" is good but my least favourite tune on here. They do kick some ass early on before a clam arrives before 3 minutes. Vocals 2 minutes later as it kicks back in. An interesting instrumental section starts before 11 minutes and it's actually experimental at times(gasp). Vocals return a couple of minutes later and this track ends their performance until we get the ovation that brings them back out to play the almost 19 minute "Rondo" to end it in style. Train sounds can be heard with lots of clashing cymbals. It's picking up speed, then we get this extended drum solo starting before 6 minutes. The crowd gets involved before 12 minutes and when the drum solo ends after 13 minutes we get a huge ovation. He's not quite done though(haha) then the bass joins in. Outstanding! Train sounds return followed by Emerson. Great sound!

So yes I highly recommend this fantastic live release and if your a big ELP fan you need this.

2 stars Varicose Vein Salad Surgical Stockings

We rehearsed for five weeks, which I could never understand why we needed to rehearse that long, Upon hearing the recordings, maybe five weeks was not long enough. It wasn't to the standard that I liked and I didn't think it sounded that good (Carl Palmer)

They sound like a hungover pub band bluffing it under the delusion that only friends and family are in attendance. On the evidence of this superannuated bumper pay day that the trio repaid with their greatest hits karaoke, it saddens me to report that ELP are no longer even the best ELP tribute band around. Many of their missed entries and cues conspire to sound rushed and tardy, too early and too late which makes for a very nervy listening experience for this self-confessed ELP fanboy.. Bum notes proliferate throughout making parts of Take a Pebble and Fanfare for the Common Man stray perilously close to self-parody. (I could swear Emerson is wearing mittens during Karn Evil 9 1st Impression Part 2) Musicians of this calibre however, cannot be uniformly abject for 90 minutes (which is exactly how long a soccer match lasts but it probably feels longer seeing as how we're watching Chelsea's wheezing pensioners, one of whom is certainly worthy of a red card or failing that, a red face Greg...) The FOH mixing boffins were clearly unable to tame the sonic gremlins that spoil much of this performance: the drums at the outset sound alternately like Tupperware surdos or timpanic watering cans. The Barbarian they portray here would probably break into your apartment, dust the place, tidy up the rooms and leave behind some baked fruit scones. Similarly, the extant Tarkus critter has been lobotomised into some sort of de-fanged proggie moggie who answers to the name of 'Mr Frisky'. Lake's bass on Knife Edge approaches 'twangy brittle' rather than the required 'guttural brooding' although in mitigation, the aforementioned knob twiddlers have managed to perform some much needed running repairs to the appalling sound quality in the interim. On the up side, there appears a genuinely innovative moment re the unconventional piano intro to Lake's habitually guitar led From the Beginning which explores the implied jazz flavour of his 9th chord vamp quite beautifully. The synth patch used on Keith's outro solo alas, is a disaster, coming across like a creepy Rolf Harris in the role of Pied Piper using Casio's flagship stylophone. Touch and Go lives up to it's associations with a completely fumbled/dropped ball intro from Keith that seems plain vanilla senile (How does this one go again lads? high dotage/dosage?) but settles down thereafter into a reasonably robust reading of what is probably the only classic post 80's ELP number by any permutation of those initials. I'm trying hard to accentuate what few positives there are but why is everything on here just so damn half-baked, wimpy and soulless?

For me, it's just a pride thing Unless it's as good as what it can be, then I can't do it. I would have carried on if it had been as good as it was. I don't believe it was and I don't believe it would have ever gotten back to that standard. (Carl Palmer)

The piano improvisation through which Emerson negotiates from Take a Pebble to the Tarkus medley is brilliantly realised and the resultant Stones of Years is spared the indignity of degenerating into any anticipated 'Gallstones of Tears'. Things have perked up considerably hereabouts and Keith's organ solo is a veritable highlight of the set. Rather bizarrely, Greg deems it prudent to attenuate the feedback present on this number by erm, shouting 'feedback x 3' into the microphone as if this will somehow make it less noticeable? Worse than that, the now spherical blimp has the chutzpah to regale us with Mass without a trace of knowing irony. Although it's hardly a stand-out in their songbook, it's refreshing to hear a live version of Farewell to Arms from the criminally neglected Black Moon album. This has a quiet and understated dignity about it that survives Lake's habitually treacly 'spoken tag-line' bathos and the odd lapse into poorly digested Elgar betrayed by the arrangement. The grazing anti-warhorse that is Lucky Man benefits from a slyly ingenious piano intro which seems rather wasted on what has always been for me, a very insubstantial ballad. What weight it might possess is further undermined by it's author forgetting the lyrics to the first verse. Keith's gritty and ballsy organ certainly beefs things up considerably but once again, this is a brownie with delusions of being a three tiered wedding cake. To be fair to Prog's favourite law firm, (Emerson, Lake & Palmer est 1970 prop G. Lake esq) they offer a very spirited and in places, moving retread of Pictures at an Exhibition which follows the latter day truncated versions as contained on the likes of the Return of the Manticore. Here the band at least exemplify the hard won lesson that despite the stubborn excesses of their Prog lineage, 'less' is finally acknowledged as begetting a more satisfying and economic 'more'.

Much of the raggedness and inaccuracies that crept into Emerson's playing circa the early 90's were attributable to a trapped nerve condition that eventually required corrective surgery. Although the operation was considered a complete success it did have a debilitating effect on Keith's pianistic abilities thereafter. He had to pare down and relax his playing style somewhat compared to the shredding pyrotechnics of his 'gun-slinger' years. However, based on the evidence of the subsequent Keith Emerson Band studio album and Live in Moscow recordings with Marc Bonilla, his playing is unfailingly top notch on both so I'm at a loss as to why there are so many clinkers on High Voltage

By this point ELP didn't even have either 'Ham or Cheese' to offer their famished but faithful fanbase but we can at the very least finally answer that nagging question first posed in 1971: Are You Ready Eddy to pull those faders down? Yep, and turn out the lights when you leave the building thanks, this show ended 30 years ago.

Review by psychprog1

3 stars This is surely a mediocre album, but I would urge all prog fans to hear it, at least for two reasons: First, to discover some beautiful, 100% prog moments -actually the 20+ minutes of the suite that covers side 2 of the LP (Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentleman)! The rest of the album is inferior but I really feel that people who attack this album as a whole are exaggerating in such a manner that I doubt if they have heard more than one or two minutes of it before they condemn it.

Second, in order to realise that one shouldn't be too prejudiced by previous reviews and external factors like the silly album cover or the recording date, because then one will miss an album that is quite pleasant, well-played and, I would say, much more human than most ELP albums! Just listen to all of it once.

Review by Anon-E-Mouse

4 stars I am surprised how this CD received little love. It contains some of the better material this band have released post "Brain, Salad, Surgery" Released as a bunch of singles, this is pretty good.

The surprise is that the piece "Paper Blood" included only - as opposed to leading this selection.

The tune is the best Deep Purple riff based Rock anthem since Blackmore left that band. Except that is by ELP, probably written by Greg Lake. Emerson gets to play a few notes. but really, he is not the creative force here.

The rest of the tunes are quite fine in their own way, but "Paper Blood" steals the show and it should have been released in it's own right.

If you have the original albums, then this bunch of singles would be of no interest. Sitting on 3.5, knocking on 4 - when not compared with ELP's early works - these tunes are quite enjoyable, deserving some attention.

In The Hot Seat
Emerson Lake & Palmer Symphonic Prog

Review by DrömmarenAdrian

2 stars In the hot seat is Emerson, Lake & Palmer's tenth and last studio album. Perhaps they'll reunite and do something more. I'm not sure I want that, at least if they can't make anything better than this, cause this wasn't enough. The cover picture shows a train approaching with the "ELP"-sign in the top and it's not wrong to compare Emerson, Lake & Palmer with a train. This record sounds like the band just follows a staked out trail where nothing unexpected happens.

I guess it's possible to find short passages where the former glory is present, but as a whole the songs are just average and in the best case a bit good. I also find the sound of the record noticeably fatigue. In the 70s, these three guys could fill the air with their three instruments. Twenty years later, they unfortunately couldn't. As as some other's have stated, in one way it's sad they produced these last mediocre releases instead of ending with a partially lovely bit as "Love Beach".

Even if this record wasn't so interesting, we must remember how important ELP is for the creation and development of the prog rock. For an inspiring and pleasant journey through their production I recommend you to begin with "Emerson, Lake & Palmer" and continue with "Tarkus", "Trilogy", "Brain Salad Surgery" and "Works Vol. 1-2". I think that will be enough. Two stars!

Black Moon
Emerson Lake & Palmer Symphonic Prog

Review by DrömmarenAdrian

2 stars I have recently followed "Emerson, Lake & Palmer's" career and most of their material hav yet been absolutely lovely to listen to. The last record I reviewed was Emerson, Lake & Powell from 1985 with a totally different drummer. This time I will write about "Black Moon" from 1992 with the proper line up. Twenty two years ago ELP made their second last record. The cover of this record shows a carousel whirling around. I wouldn't say it is especially interesting to look at. Unfortunately the music isn't very interesting either. Some songs have decent themes and enjoyable melodies. Though is the whole experience negative of this record.

As usual, Carl Palmer drums, but the rhytms are quite usual and Keith Emerson doesn't make his best works on the keyboard. Neither does Greg Lake with his voice, it hasn't the same edge as before.

I like some of the songs: "Black Moon" initiates the album with a typical quite rocky ELP' song (6/10). "Romeo and Juliet" has something interesting in it, well it's a lovely melody but ELP here doesn't make anything extraordinary with the classical piece as with "Pictures at an exhibition"(6/10) and "Farewell to arms" and "Burning Bridges" have beautiful vocals and some of the holy feeling the band has proved before (7/10). The other songs, unfortunately aren't so special that I want to write about them. Sometimes it just feels like that the listening time is too long. As a whole this album doesn't work well. This was absolutely not the same band that produced so magic music twenty years earlier. Two stars!

Pictures At An Exhibition

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars ''Tarkus'' was undoubtfully a huge selling success for E.L.P. with the album taking his place at the top of the British charts and reaching the top-10 of the American Billboard, eventually leading the trio to a great tour in North America.But its side-effects were beyond this success.The band had recorded a performance based on Russian composer's Modest Mussorgsky most famous composition ''Pictures at an exhibition'' at Newcastle City Hall in March 26th, 1971, which was set for release, but Island's management refused to publish in time, believing it was way too pretentious to have any commercial value.The answer came though with the huge success of ''Tarkus'' and the label decided to release this recording in November 71'.The artwork was again a responsibility of William Neal.

The truth is that ''Pictures at an exhibition'' Classical depth and tension was a great choice for a group like E.L.P., the reworking of the trio is up to the standards of the original composition, flavored with Greg Lake's excellent voice and Keith Emerson's diverse keyboard work.It brings back memories of THE NICE and their tendency towards Classical Rock, although E.L.P. were far more refined and progressive.Opening with the pipe organ, which was installed in the City Hall around 1928, this Classical adaption is full of Emerson's smooth piano preludes, powerful Hammond organ and nervous Moog synth fanfares, that eventually switch from mellow passages to bombastic offerings, always having a grandiose Classical nature.The album contains the flaws, evident in any live recording, however most of its part is nicely executed with long, keyboard-led solos and acrobatics and good work by Lake and Palmer on bass and drums.The bulk of synthesizer lines are way too pompous, angular or even abstract and the best qualities come during the great organ runs with the dynamic rhythm section backing up.The much needed acoustic breaks are rather limited and the absolute peak of the album seems to be ''The hut Of Baba Yaga'', featuring maybe the best vocal performance of Lake with E.L.P., the measured organ work of Emerson and the solid drumming of Palmer, creating music somewhere between Psychedelic and Classical Rock and at least delivering some nice, romantic textures through the storm of keyboard strikes.

Not the best work of E.L.P. for sure, yet this is far from an uninteresting album.It's a fine reworking of a deadly Cllassical composition mostly performed with passion and accuracy, suffering a bit from some stretched and abnormal instrumental solos.Recommended.

Black Moon
Emerson Lake & Palmer Symphonic Prog

Review by Anon-E-Mouse

3 stars I've long given up on ELP as their classic period had concluded with "Brain Salad Surgery" - at least in the sense of a complete album worth of admiration. Having heard their efforts since left me underwhelmed - if not bitterly disappointed. With that in mind, I've bought this CD only because it was marked down with a cut out inner sleeve. What I paid for was worth the expense though, in relative terms.

The title song "Black Moon" doesn't do a thing for me. indeed I find it rather ordinary and totally forgettable. What follows is "Paper Blood" a dynamic and excellent riff based piece that is akin to a Rock anthem, closer to Deep Purple's "Machine Head" era than anything to do with ELP, ever. But it's a great piece and the harmonica playing complements it splendidly. This tune alone was worth my purchase.

That Lake sings about "American Express" in a critical tone is a bit rich, considering the band were flown around in private jets with no expense spared. Surely, they are not short of a restaurant meal paid by credit card, or have they made bad investments?

Lake's socio-conscious messages carry through the album and it's hard to tell if they are genuine concerns, or just a populist approach. Nevertheless, his ballads here are far better when compared with "Love Beach" and the rest since BSS.

Emerson makes an effort to be noticed in a couple of mediocre compositions that are kinda OK, but far from his best. This band has largely lost their drive, one that made them Prog peers. I consider this album better than average since BSS, but hardly a masterpiece.

Surprisingly, ELP are still able to perform excellent live renditions of their classic era, so what makes them churning out sub-standard studio material remains a mystery. And here I agree with a previous comment that implies that Mark Mancina's involvement was detrimental to the end product.
