The March 1971 live recording (Newcastle, UK) of the band's interpretation of Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition was issued as a low-priced record, the success of which highly contributed to the band's overall popularity.
(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.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer as shown on the cover for their 1972 album Trilogy.
Their extravagant and often aggressive live shows received much criticism in this regard – although in retrospect it was all rather small change compared to later rock spectacles: the theatrics were limited to a Persian carpet, a spinning grand piano, a few bangs on huge Chinese cymbals and a Hammond organ being molested on stage.

 Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival
The Isle of Wight Festival of 1970 has enjoyed a bit of resurgence lately thanks to the video release of a movie of the festival, with a soundtrack, plus individual performance releases by the Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
Whereas some of the acts who appeared at the Isle of Wight might sooner put it behind them or not even live to tell about it, ELP recalls the event as a monumemtal moment in the history of the band.
LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL is available on ELP's own Manitcore records, exclusively through the ELP Web site.

 Progressive Rock Music Discography (Albums, DVDs Videos and compilations), MP3 and album reviews
They were sold as one of the first rock supergroups, with Keith Emerson coming from the (at times excellent but often uneven) The Nice, Greg Lake from King Crimson, who arguably were at their best when he was in the line-up, and Carl Palmer from the terrific heavy prog act Atomic Rooster.
It's almost as good as the studio version was to these ears, and it's a shame that this classic statement of intent (it was the first song on their first album) when it actually got released doesn't seemed to have been performed a great deal after this early point in their career.
In truth, this version is almost as good as the live version that was filmed for cinema release later in the same year, though not quite as good as the live album version.

 MusicStories.net: EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER
With King Crimson bassist Lake and former Arthur Brown drummer Palmer, Emerson formed the new band in 1970.
Emerson had a British solo hit with the boogie-woogie standard 'Honky Tonk Train Blues' (1976), while Lake joined Johnny Marks as the writer of what seemed set to become one of the perennial Christmas songs ('I Believe in Father Christmas').
Emerson did film scores (Inferno, 1980, and Nighthawks, 1981), Lake a solo album (Chrysalis, 1981), while Palmer made an album with PM (Ariola, 1980) before joining Yes guitarist Steve Howe in a new supergroup, Asia, whose first album spent nine weeks at No. 1 in America in 1982.

The Isle Of Wight, with its all star line up that included Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Free, Sly and The Family Stone, was a very unnerving experience for the young band, who certainly rose to the occasion.
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.

Isle of Wight 1970: The Birth of a Band
Lake’s voice falls flat on occasion, and the occasional cue is missed—most notably during “Rondo,” a high-energy adaptation of jazz pianist Dave Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo a la Turk” where Lake completely loses the changes, often catching up at the last moment.
Still, Isle of Wight 1970 and the seventy-minute documentary on the DVD side, The Birth of a Band—featuring live footage from the performance and recent interviews—paint a vivid picture of a group that could only have emerged at a time when nothing was off-limits and anything was possible.

 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.

 Emerson, Lake & Palmer [www.progweed.net]
Emerson, Lake and Palmer were progressive rock's biggest super heroes during the 1970s, and paradoxically responsible both for some of the highlights, and lowlights, of our beloved genre.
Emerson is obviously an awe-inspiring keyboardist and pianist, and the playing here is extremely wanky, not to mention Lake's unneccesary lyrical contributions.
Emerson Lake & Palmer are the easiest targets when it comes to criticizing the entire progressive rock genre.

 PROGRESSIVEWORLD.NET: REVIEWS BY STEPHANIE SOLLOW
The sound is very, very good however, as you can hear Emerson's keyboards, Palmer's drums and Lake's bass with such clarity as to pick out individual notes.
Emerson seems pleasantly insane during parts of the Tarkus medley, during "Iconoclast," more so than on the studio version, as sqeaks, pips, shreaks, etc. "Knife Edge" sounds menacing at first, owing to Lake's deepend vocal tones, matched by the darker bass tones.
As I said, at an hour, this CD zips by rather quickly, the pieces they've chosen keep things moving, even during the still "Still..." It is a live CD that wears well after repeated listenings, which isn't always the case.
