Emerson, Lake and Palmer, known to all as ELP, were progressive rock’s first supergroup. Keith Emerson (keyboards) came from The Nice, Greg Lake (guitar, bass & vocals) from King Crimson and Carl Palmer (drums) from Atomic Rooster. Formed in 1970 they were an instant success and went on to have a series of hugely successful albums throughout the seventies before splitting up in the early eighties. Reunited in the early nineties they produced a new album, Black Moon, and began to tour again. In 1997 they embarked on a world tour which included this performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 7. It is the only film from this tour that is available. The set includes ELP classics from across their career including Karn Evil 9 (“Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends”), Hoedown, Take A Pebble, Lucky Man, Tarkus, Pictures At An Exhibition and Fanfare For The Common Man. Also featured are rare tracks that have never appeared on ELP studio albums such as Touch And Go, Dance Creole and Carmina Burana. The booklet features individual sleeve notes from Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer.
E L P
Perhaps one of the greatest groups of all time.You have not truly enjoyed rock and roll until you have listened to them
I agree, I saw them live several times in LA. They had that classic background and turned out the best rock. They were fabulous!!!
ELP Live at Montreax
This is one of the greatest bands ever. They toured in the U.S. some but never became well known here. In Europe they were number one. I've viewed all of their videos and this is the best even though it is 20 years after their prime. If you are not familiar with ELP then start this video with "Lucky Man" and watch it through the grand finale. You will llove it!!!
