5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Live Album, 23 Sep 2011
This review is from: Pictures At An Exhibition (Audio CD)
There was a time when Emerson Lake & Palmer was THE band to see live. At the cutting edge of the '70s Prog Rock movement they did the business and others usually followed. They were incredible live, amazing how 3 musicians could produce such a symphonic sound on stage. Emerson was a keyboard master, Lake's voice like velvet, his bass playing matching Carl Palmer's supercharged drumming.

They couldn't lose with this marvelous album. It came out at a budget price with a wonderful cover and became a sort of benchmark for every live album that followed. If Ravel had put Mussorgsky's little known work on the classical music map then ELP made it a household name.

So popular was the album that their fan's demanded a studio version to put alongside the live version. Sadly, that didn't come about yet the live album is a lasting fragment of their fantastic stage performances.
