4 stars Welcome back my friends is the last really good album from ELP from my point of view. Despite some critics of the sound quality I think it's good enough.

Musicianship is great as usual and what's more, songs from Brain salad surgery sounds better due to the live energy of performance.

The highlight is definitely Tarkus. What more can be said? I am amazed and what's more, a bit of King Crimson's Epitaph is included! Also Hoedown, Take a pebble together with piano improvisations are really very good performed. Of course, Karn evil is another triumph of ELP.

Moreover, even Jeremy Bender / the sherrif is quite good performed live.

To sum up, this is a very good live double-album full of great musicianship and songs. A must have for all who like almost perfect live prog.
