Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Reissued album reviews

Album Review

Trilogy/Brain Salad Surgery/Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends – Ladies And Gentlemen Emerson Lake & Palmer - all repackaged, remixed and reworked once again

There are creative purple patches and then there are the three scant years in which ELP wrote and released Trilogy, Brain Salad Surgery and brought new meaning to the term ostentatious when they unveiled the triple vinyl live album, Welcome Back…. It says something about their place in the world at the time that a three-disc live album would land them the Number Four spot on the Billboard chart in the US. Commercially and creatively speaking, ELP were at an all-time high.
