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 ...

Product Description

Buoyed by the success of Black Moon, ELP released In The Hot Seat in 1994. Another well-received album, they toured it until 1998, when they called it a day again - until their 2010 re-union at the High Voltage Festival in London.

Format: Audio CD
This is the second 'reunion' album, produced in 1994.

This is more 'Lake, Palmer and Emerson'. Every track has Lake singing - there is no instrumental tour-de-force where Keith Emerson takes over. And there is a good reason for that: when they made this, Emerson was suffering with his hand injury. He was in great difficulty at the time, so the flamboyance of earlier albums just could not be there. The end product is basically Greg Lake accompanied by Carl Palmer and Keith Emerson.

As with 'Black Moon', its predecessor album, I believe the treatment of the drums is all wrong here. Carl Palmer is one of the fastest, most technically accomplished drummers around but here he is presented as crashing out sound on the off beats, all flair and speed put to one side, or mixed out.

Even so, this album was well received. The material, mainly four and five minute songs, is reasonably strong and Greg Lake is is good voice (apart from the cut-down 'Pictures at an Exhibition' where he sounds to have a sore throat!) This sounds very much like the original Isle of Wight recording.

It is definitely the ELP sound and after the long break before 'Black Moon' and this, it is just great to hear original ELP material again. So for fans there is a certain joy here, simply to hear them again.

But please ... this is not a five star ELP album, not even for a die-hard ELP fan like me. Emerson is struggling and Palmer doesn't shine on this. This is nowhere better shown than in 'Pictures', which by the standards of the 1970s live album, is a pedestrian affair, taken more slowly and missing the exuberant rocking links.

So, how to mark this? I gave 'Black Moon' four stars, simply because it was so good to hear them again.

This was there last Studio Album ELP made back in 1994,and I don't understand why this Album got a few poor reviews? there are some very good tracks on this CD,for instance the track "DADDY" sung by Greg Lake is a true story about a little girl missing from school,and it's so moving it's just brilliant,and the other track is the "MAN IN THE LONG BLACK COAT" which is on the slightly darker side of ELP,and there is also some bonus tracks on this Album a newer version of "PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION",and I regard this Album is no way poor! SO JUST 'ELP YOURSELF!.

The 2 worst covers by ELP relates to the music beyond those covers, I have reviewed Love Beach and now this one , Street War, and Hand of Truth hold up a bit, and what happened to Greg Rakes voice at the time, too many ciggies.
The rest is bilge , only saving grace for the rest is an excellent recording of Pictures, but that still has Greg's voice on it!

They still got it! 6 Dec. 2012
By dklange - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had never heard this album before and being that I had really liked the previous studio release from ELP (Black Moon), I took a chance and bought "Hot Seat". From the first listen, I liked it! I should mention that I have been a fan since the first album was released back in 1971! This album is no disappointment... perhaps not as commercial as Black Moon but still another excellent record. Greg Lake's song "Daddy" is amazing! The recap of "Pictures at an Exhibition" completes this album in typical ELP style! This is one of those albums that the more you listen to it the more you like!!

Not very good. Bad songs and bad voice. 29 Jan. 2015
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My version came a bonus track of Pictures at an Exhibition, recorded in 5.1 surround sound. This track could not be played on standard CD players, but it plays in my new car stereo. It is 14 minutes. It is labeled as track 11 in the liner notes, but it is actually broken up into 6 separate tracks. I think it is pointless and tedious. I don't see any reason for yet another truncated version of this piece.

The main album has 10 songs and is about 42 minutes long. The sound quality has that digital booming quality that was popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

This is a collection of songs that are not very good for the most part. And the musical accompaniment is not very interesting. There is a Bob Dylan tune, but I don't like the way they play it. I think this album is worse than Black Moon and Love Beach.

The one song that is moderately good is Thin Line. There are two other songs that I didn't totally hate: Change and Street War.
But, none of these songs are close to being as good as anything on the group's first 6 albums.

Daddy is a really depressing song about a man's daughter being kidnapped and murdered. It has a nice melody if you listen to it in the background, but you really don't want to listen to the words.
ELP Fizzles Out 28 Oct. 2014

I start the cd and think, 'this is a good album. Better than I expected' No its not. The first 2 songs are the only good songs on the album. Then I said, 'well, there's the bonus track of PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION. Now that's got to be good' Its the worst version of that song I've ever heard. And they might as well forget doing DYLAN'S Man in The Long Black Coat. Its Nowhere Near the feel Dylan gives it. Id rather listen to Carl Palmer's Works Live. Way better, in my opinion.
Decent Album 4 April 2014

Not my favorite E.L.P. effort - however the musicianship is excellent & there are a couple of quality nuggets in there.

Last album has some merit 31 Jan. 2014
By Zach Clayton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
it's not bad. Black Moon is far superior, and they obviously weren't going for one type of song. It's okay, not as bad as Love Beach. But for only having one hand to work with, Keith still did superbly.
