If you are considering purchasing this boxed set, then obviously you are familiar with the album, the group's 5th, and most popular, featuring the lengthy progressive rock epic "Karn Evil 9", plus four shorter selections.

A general summary of the boxed set's contents: CD 1: the original 1973 mix. CD2: outtakes, alternate mixes & non-L.P. B-sides. CD3:A new 2014 stereo mix by engineer Jacko Jakcsyk. DVD-audio: The original 1973 stereo mix, the 2014 stereo mix and a 2014 surround sound mix engineered by Jakcsyk. DVD-Video: The Manticore special. Disc 6: a vinyl L.P. containing the original 1973 mix. If you're not equipped to play the high-resolution(better than CD sound quality) DVD-Audio, don't worry, because the DVD-Audio disc also contains lossy DTS & Dolby Digital versions that will play on any DVD player.

The packaging: The set is housed in a package identical in construction to the 2013 35th anniversary edition of "Fleetwood Mac-Rumours". You get a sturdy 12" x 12" slipcase containing the vinyl L.P. in a gatefold sleeve. The L.P. fits into the left side of the sleeve, the 5 optical discs are in cardboard mini-sleeves and the right inside of the gatefold has pockets to hold 4 of the 5 optical discs. Apparently, it was a last minute decision to include the video documentary, so that DVD-video & its sleeve are included, free-floating inside the left side of the sleeve. Perhaps this oversight can be addressed if there is a second production run of this set. As with the Fleetwood Mac set, there is a 12" x 12" 19-page booklet of liner notes and photos, and additionally, this set includes a 6-panel insert of photos and lyrics(it's identical to the one included with the original 1973 L.P.). Fans will bemoan that the L.P.

TARKUS deluxe 5.1 - ELP deluxe 5.1 - Brain SS deluxe NO 5.1 - WHY? Makes no sense.
Preordered this especially for the 5.1 as documented by sites associated with amazon. See superdeluxeedition.com - As I write, they are saying both BSS sets include the 5.1 mix and link you directly to BSS purchase on amazon. Something not right here, deeply disappointed.

This would have been a 10 star review if it wasn't for the unforgivable way the record companies are treating the fans. When I pre-ordered this I not unreasonably expected the DVD to come with the 5.1 mix and it DOESN'T. There is no excuse for this. Add to this the unforgiveable absence of the now crsytal clear lyrics and it's clear just how cynically the record company are behaving here. What makes things worse is that the booklet refers to the 5.1 mix on disc 4,which clearly suggests that they've saved money by using the same booklet in this version and in the super deluxe edition.
Musically this album cannot be faulted, it is justifiably widely regarded as ELP's finest achivement, and the 2014 remaster is just superb with everything sounding better than ever, which almost makes this worth the asking price, but the missing 5.1 mix is unacceptable.
So 10 stars for the music and NO stars for the atrocious way the fans are being treated.

Who would have thought a prog rock track would become the title song to a well-known family-orientated game show? Thanks to Jim Davidson being a mega-ELP fan, the first movement of the albums Karn Evil 9, better known as "Welcome Back My Friends" is the theme song to "The Generation Game". Karn Evil 9 is a complex, often dark, often tricky work, harking back to the days of "Tarkus", the theme being man being ultimately governed by machines. But as well as the brooding metallic passages, there is also a chance for the great Keith Emerson to indulge his passion and immense artistry as a jazz pianist. It all makes for an unforgettable and mesmeric piece.
However, perhaps the most haunting is their rendering of "Jerusalem", that stays faithful with its sacred overtones. No-one has produced a better version of this eternal song.
Their classical bent continues with the racy and dramatic "Toccata" and the trademark commercial track is the lovely acoustic "Still.....You Turn Me On". And there is a novelty track "Benny the Bouncer", a real Cockney ragtime little number with extremely menacing overtones.
Brain Salad Surgery - which incidentally was a track but only available as a freebie floppy disc with a music paper back in the 70s - ranks as one of the greatest ELP collections. Full of contrasts fusing the influences of classical composers with out and out rock rhythms, the music is timeless and still sounds fresh. God bless Jim Davidson for giving it a brand new lease of life and hopefully a wider audience.

Hi.
This is my first review ever. I promised myself I will never write a review at all. But I had to. I'm very disappointed with this version. I bought it only for 5.1 mix of the album. DVD contains only high resolution stereo mix by Jakszyk. To get a surround mix you have to buy a limited edition for £58. What a politics? ELP and Tarkus contain 5.1 mix (by Wilson) for the price of £11 each. Don't buy it. Maybe they will find out they made a mistake and issue a version with surround mix. For now, DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!!!! Waste of money. I'm going to sell mine copy straight away even without listen to it.
