^Tubular Bells, brilliant album, never been a huge fan of Hergest Ridge. The other records shown here are great!
Called out a tune, but I never saw the face. Heard but not replaced.
I ventured to talk, but I never lost my place.

It's funny about ELP, for me......I've never been the biggest fan of ELP. I admit, I got caught up in the whole symphonic thing back in the mid 70's with ELP as it was super interesting what Keith was doing. I bought some of the early albums.....And now I own multiple copies of Tarkus (3), Trilogy (2), Pictures/Exhibition (2), ELP (3) one of these is a reel to reel version.
Basically me just on the hunt for the best sounding version on LP, problem is here in 'Merica it is very hard finding ELP in the wild with VG+ condition. Their records were played to death round these parts......

Quote reel to reel version
That's like a crazy expensive format but when it's a good quality tape, it's way better sonically than crackly vinyl IMO.
A different side to claim the most...

These R2R albums are just ok, they were played on not very good machines back in the day and you can experience a lot of tape drop outs. I bought it cause it was inexpensive, it sounds fine. Think of cassette tapes only being played in a car, usually not the best transports or heads they get beat up pretty good.
Now the tape dubs I make sound fantastic for sure.......I've even dubbed some CDs to tape and on occasion my ears like that better than the disc.

So in the spirit of 'You show me yours and I'll show you mine'...Wink

Only the ELP Vinyls. I also have all associated solo/soundtrack/offshoot band stuff as well on CD. Not to mention pretty much any ELP bootleg recording (on CDR) that exists, to my knowledge.

I went through all my/my dad's records and cataloged them. I should post the complete alphabetized list here, or maybe in chunks

I almost went to Cal Jam but was told to young Cry. I wanted to see Earth, Wind & Fire and Black Sabbath....

Cool. I do think ELP had great artwork on all their early albums and more diverse than Yes and Genesis for instance. After BSS they seemed to give up on that side of things which was a shame. Gigers BSS will always remain my favourite for sure. Dark genius that chap and he was an ELP fan apparently.

I like it more and more. It has more layers and depth than The Future Bites, I see now how Future Bites is very shallow compared to Harmony Codex. To me I can sense how much more SW was "into" this record than the last one.
Also the production is excellent and sonically this record will make your head and ears spin, really hard to argue against Steven Wilson's mixing abilities.......
I ordered early enough I got the 4-pack of postcards as well, they are just the Burning Shed post cards focusing on  Harmony Codex themes, but nice to have.

Ordered ELP - Live At Tokyo (1972). Great live album and insane version of Pictures. I will post a pic once I receive it.

WOW !!
Looks really, really nice. I need to know the sound quality please, is it a Soundboard recording or an Audience recording?
I have a CDR of that concert but it is an audience recording, and a best a good recording. Very clear, but a little distant sounding.  It's also missing Hoedown, but has a partial Nutrocker and Tarkus ends after Mass (only 11 minutes appearing). My Pics at an Ex is 16 min long, and there is no Piano Solo (Piano Improvisations) after Lucky Man. So I'm wondering if they are even the same concert?

^ I think its the original Japanese broadcast version so is good quality. Everything is perfectly clear to my ears. Version of Tarkus is fully intact as is Pictures. Its all good. They did play 2 gigs in Japan so it may be that you have the other version. I am aware of a very bad video with a suspect audio track that is well circulated on the web and this is not the same as that. The only issue is the announcer talking over the beginning of Hoedown but its a small thing for me. I love this kind of live album. The band are very loose so it's not ELP quite as 'tight' as they are on other live recordings of the time but they are having a blast! I think I would put this only slightly below the Mar Y Sol Festival performance of the same year which has a similar set list but there is not a lot in it.
