Emerson Trio demos available on CD and digital

Keyboard hero hopes long-lost 1960s recordings will inspire the next generation

Keith Emerson's early demo recordings captured in his parents' living room have been released on CD for the first time.

The long-lost recordings were previously issued on vinyl earlier in 2015, and are now available on CD and digitally via Cherry Red Records.

The Keith Emerson Trio Recordings were made in the early 1960s before the keyboard icon found fame with The Nice and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

Emerson says: “Well, we all have to start somewhere. I'm happy that Cherry Red is releasing my very earliest beginnings and I hope it will inspire future generations of musicians.”
