Biography

Considered by many to be one of rock's original first super-groups, Emerson Lake & Palmer formed in England in 1970 consisting of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). The band created a brand new world of music, combining classical and symphonic rock fused with beautiful vocals. Their penchant for appropriating themes ...

Yes they were bombastic, sometimes silly but often brilliant. So, to save you wading through triple live LPs, double solo/group LPs and in order to avoid dross like 'Love Beach' and 'Jeremy Bender' this greatest hits collection is short, sharp and rather brilliant.

i bought this to add to my prog rock collection as i had no previous ELP recordings. This is not for me i find the tracks weak and not to my personal taste. If you predominately lean towards the rock side of prog rock then this will not be for you.

This is a good introduction to ELP for modern prog rock fans. The true aficionados will already have these tracks on other albums but I suppose the obsessive fan will need this just to complete the collection. Handy for in the car (if you can't be bothered to cut your own 'best of') but like most collections this had some tracks I would have omitted in favour of others (I'm not saying which - it only leads to arguments :-) ).

I realised a number of years ago that best of albums where first rate to play in the car as all the tunes you knew so you could sing along ,this is one of those albums to me.I never followed E.L.P. in particular though I did go and see them on the Brain Salad Surgery which was most enjoyable this was in 1974 so that means BSSis 40 years old and still seems just as relative today

I have yet to forgive them for the 44 minute drum solo inflicted on me in the seventies but having all of the pre -1975 stuff on vinyl I thought a CD would be useful for the car,and it is.

Does sound very dated,but so am I
