More information: ELPs second LP ‘Tarkus’ (1971) stretched their sound in new directions and dimensions, with more complex electronic keyboard sound. The title track took up the first side of the LP and ultimately defined the ELP sound - loud, bombastic and boundlessly exultant in its instrumental power.

‘Tarkus’ the album was No.1 in the U.K. and No.9 in the U.S. Last minute addition ‘Lucky Man’ became their debut single, a U.K. and U.S. hit.
