  Emerson, Lake & Palmer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Emerson and Lake first discussed the possibility of collaborating at that point, but only after the Crimson lineup began disintegrating during their first U.S. tour did he finally opt to leave the group (after agreeing to sing on the forthcoming Crimson album).
Emerson was interested in further exploiting the range of the Moog synthesizer, and had conceived of an extended suite built around an opening eruption of sound, while Palmer had come up with an unusual drum pattern that he was eager to use.
ELP split up in 1979: Lake embarked on a moderately successful solo career, Emerson took to composing film scores and recorded the occasional solo project, and after a stint with the band P.M., Palmer joined the pop supergroup Asia.

 Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Emerson, Lake and Palmer were one of rock and roll's earliest "supergroups" who were formed from members of three already successful bands, The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster.
Emerson, Lake and Palmer were forced to head to Compass Point Studios in The Bahamas to record what would become an album called "Love Beach", a disjointed, uninspired collection of songs released in mid 1979, It also marked the end of ELP for 12 years.
Palmer was still contracted to Asia and was unable to participate, but gave his blessing to Emerson and Lake to work together again.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Pictures
ELP's California Jam performance was broadcast nationwide in the US and is often seen as the summit of the band's career.
(Palmer declined to participate in a reunion, preferring to stay with Asia.) In 1987, Emerson and Palmer joined with Robert Berry to form the band 3.
Lake admitted that he did not train his voice: a few live shows were generally enough to get it in shape, he claimed.

 Ground and Sky review - Emerson, Lake & Palmer - self-titled
Emerson, Lake and Palmer's debut album was in many ways their most interesting; there seems to be have been very little development after this release, just refinement of the existing elements.
Those that complain that ELP are too pretentious or over-the-top seem to miss the point; yes, these guys will suffocate you with their machismo, but that's precisely the charm of this type of music (for me, at least).
ELP was one of the most important bands of the progressiev rock era in terms of influence.

 ELP - Biography
Although most ELP fans believe their first gig was at the massive three day long Isle Of Wight Pop Music Festival on August 29th., the first gig actually took place six days earlier at a 3000 seat hall in Plymouth Guildhall.
Emerson Lake and Powell released their debut LP in 1986 and began rehearsing in England for a US tour.
Emerson cut more tracks for a solo album; Lake cut several songs with Asia's Geoff Downes for a band project that was eventually shelved; and Palmer returned to the Asia line up for a series of tours.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Emerson is clearly running out of ideas, as he recycles his stereotypical playing for the zillionth time on endless synth/organ/piano solos, and Lake isn't really any better.
The album mostly showcases Lake: Emerson, who just had had an operation on his right hand, never engages in lengthy piano solos or synth noodlings (which doesn't mean that the album is totally deprived of keyboard work, though; it's just a little more restrained), while Palmer still sticks in the background.
Lake's voice has somewhat improved since his Black Moon problems (he quit smoking, they say), but it's still weaker, hoarser and darker than before; Palmer still relies too much on electronics; and Emerson is a little bit too hard on hi-tech synths that give the whole performance a somewhat mechanical and artificial feel.

 Ground and Sky review - Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Pictures at an Exhibition
ELP's rendition, on the other hand...well, it's actually at its best when the band gets away from trying to adapt the classical piece.
Speaking of Lake's lyrics, things like his climactic lines "There's no end to my life, no beginning to my death, death is Life!" foreshadow some of the horribly bad lyrics he would write on later albums.
ELP is at their best when they are not aping (raping?) Mussorgsky, but unfortunately this only happens on one track, "Blues Variations".

 MSJ - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer - Brain Salad Surgery
In a way, ELP, as they are commonly referenced, is the missing link between progressive groups of yesterday and today.
From what I've heard, Emerson would turn 360 degrees while playing a grand piano, ride his Hammond organ, throw knives at his equipment, lay flat out on stage with a Hammond on top of him, and even launch fireworks from his portable ribbon controller.
In a way, ELP is defined by their stage antics and live performances as their studio works.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Emerson, Lake and Palmer were formed in 1970, after a chance meeting between Keith Emerson of The Nice and Greg Lake of King Crimson.
Keith Emerson wrote his "Piano Concerto No. 1", a piece that proves that his talents as a composer are not dependant upon using the synthesizer.
The fourth side presented "Fanfare for the common man" and "Pirates", the former a piece by Copland, augmented by a bluesy keyboard solo by Emerson, the latter resembling the score to a Hollywood musical.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer
An extraordinary inventive and tasteful organist, Keith Emerson, as the prime moving force of the Nice, was one of the few performers capable of holding his own against the flood of guitar oriented heavy rock groups of the ten thousand ton variety.
Though Emerson is "featured" on piano and organ, he has some extremely strong support from Greg Lake (formerly with King Crimson) on vocals, bass, and guitar; and from Carl Palmer (formerly with Atomic Rooster -- a group formed by Arthur Brown's ex-organist Vincent Crane) on drums.
Keith Emerson is heard to great advantage and at last he might achieve some of the recognition he has long missed.

Carl Palmer's value is amply shown on Tank, notably the final section with the thumping drum riff overlayed by Emerson's screaming Moog.
ELP are accused of being pretentious and lacking in emotion, though Greg Lake disproved the latte with Lucky Man, a song that brings a tear to my eye to this day.
ELP were one of the leading perveyors of progressive rock in the 1970s, focusing on the classical side of music.

 EMERSON LAKE & PALMER (ELP) discography, MP3 and reviews
They explored their capabilities to an extreme, even with the technology limitations of the early 70's, breaking ground, setting the new parameters for a new vein in the english pop music (at the time) which would be called progressive music.
ELP released 10 outstanding albums during the 70's, and after a long break, they got back in the 90's with a new approach, but still making good music.
Other good ELP albums include "Pictures at an Exhibition", their provocative, fiery and intense take on a classical work.

 Emerson Lake & Palmer Reviews
Influenced by Mussorgsky and Stravinsky, ELP wreaked havoc with the conventions of what rock and classical music could and could not be.
With former members of King Crimson, The Nice, and Atomic Rooster, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were a veritable supergroup, and the 1970 release of their debut album, ELP, was the first step for a band that went on to define progressive rock.
With capable Keith Emerson at the controls of the Moog synthesizer and the Hammond B3 organ, Greg Lake on guitar and vocals, and talented Carl Palmer on drums, the debut release leaned heavily toward a new technical wizardry that became the band's halmark.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer Discography
Today, the band invokes images of baroque excess, the final indignity seemingly served by Blender's readers in a September 2003 poll that ranked them the 2nd worst band of all time.
Of course, prog fans are musical adventurers by their very nature, willing to plumb the most profund pits of darkness, to climb the tallest spires of truth, to dance with the invisible spirits of music in an embrace of faith.
ELP may not be your favorite band (or second or third), but they remain one of the principal gods in the great Pantheon, and to assail their virtues is to shake the foundation of the building itself.

 BobbyShred's Emerson Lake and Palmer Tribute Page   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
ELP is one of the hardest rocking bands in the world that has very little guitar in it.
Keith Emerson's lightning fast keyboard playing, mixed with his total command of the ground breaking synthesizers built especially for him by Robert Moog, is nothing less than inspired.
Greg Lakes rock solid bass lines, his beautiful acoustic guitar work, Keith's pyrotechnical keyboard playing, and Carl Palmer's unmatched drumming ability, provided for one of the most musical, and technically performances I have ever seen.

 Emerson Lake and Palmer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Both Keith Emerson (The Nice) and Greg Lake (King Crimson) were former key members of groups that had pretty much created the genre, and as such one could only expect them to continue what they seemed to have a knack for.
Keith Emerson, let's face it, was almost indisputably the greatest keyboardist on earth, hands down (I think he was officially given the title by some renowned magazine twenty five times in a period of thirty years).
And Lake does just that; not that the lyrics are all bad ("the sadness on your shoulders like a wornout overcoat, in pockets greased and tattered hang the rags of your hopes," there's a good line), but they really need that extra oomph in order to make them work.

After being an avid ELP fan for the past few years, I still feel that this is the album that led me to the path of progressive rock, which I still feel has always been under appreciated.
Emerson Lake & Palmer's material defies reduction to a single disc, but if a single disc you must have, this is the one to get.
Highly recommend for those ELP fans and those who just like their music.
