More information: Hot on the heels of their famous, critically acclaimed performance to 600,000 people at the Isle Of Wight Festival in August 1970, came ELP’s ground-breaking debut album ‘Emerson, Lake & Palmer’ (1970).
‘ELP’ comprised their strongest early originals and two dazzling classical adaptations filled with rippling piano and synthesizer playing by Emerson alongside lightning-fast drumming by Palmer, anchored around Lake's excellent bass work.
‘ELP’ was a huge, instant success, reaching No.4 on the U.K. albums chart / U.S. No.18, and setting the group well on the road to global stardom.
Disc One is the 24 bit / High Density 2012 remaster of original 1970 album by highly renowned rock mastering engineer Andy Pearce.
Disc Two contains the Steven Wilson 2012 Stereo Mix (of the 2012 Remaster) of the original album, including four extra bonus tracks from the original albums sessions and four alternate versions of original album tracks.
The CD booklet features extensive notes of new 2016 interview with band members Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, by legendary rock journalist Chris Welch.
