    Posted: February 07 2019 at 20:20
I am writing here because I am trying to acquire the 3 now out of print music books of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. These three books are “ELP (Black Book)”, “Tarkus (Album Book)”, and “Anthology”. I have been on the search for these books for a while, and I believe that they have all been out of print since the 80s. They do not appear on either Amazon or eBay when searching for them. These books just seem to be extremely rare, but it would be awesome if someone knew where I could find a copy or would be willing to sell me one.

EDIT: I am mainly in search of the sheet music for "Memoirs of an Officer and a Gentleman", which is presented in its entirety in the "Anthology" book. I have tried searching for it online, but I have only ever come across a midi version. If there is anyone who does have the Anthology book, or at least has the sheet music, I would be eternally grateful if I could get a copy.

Actually, I have what I think you call the 'Black Book" if it's score circa "Works" your talking about.
Sorry, it's not for sale...or is it???
Hmmm, do I hear an opening bid?
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Thank you for that link. I already had the PDF file of Tarkus but it was nice to find some of Anthology, even though it's not complete.

This is amazing, thanks for the link!  I saw the Tarkus book way back in the early 80's at my local sheet music store but didn't have the money to buy it.  Next time I went back it was gone and I never saw it again.  I did have the Black book though but loaned it to a friend 30 years ago and never saw it again LOL
