Product description

Product Description

It was 1986 and a reunion was being planned for the 1970s British super-group, Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Carl Palmer however was still contractually obliged to record two more albums for Geffen Records with his own platinum band, Asia. Although ELP hadn't worked together for nearly seven years, there was still considerable demand for the band and its music. So, with the blessing of Carl Palmer, Emerson and Lake decided to carry on with another drummer. After a brief search, it was suggested to Emerson and Lake that they should approach Cozy Powell, a handsome Brit with a long list of successful band memberships, would soon prove to be the best choice to fill Palmer's illustrious shoes. For one thing - and although both Emerson and Lake said the P in his last name had nothing to do with their decision to hire Powell - it allowed for the popular nickname of the band ELP to remain intact. But after only one rehearsal, it was clear to both Emerson and Lake that ELPowell would indeed be a very different sounding band than Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Cozy Powell, having played in a wide spectrum of rock bands ranging from The Jeff Beck Group and Bedlam to Richie Blackmore's Rainbow and the post-Ozzy era Black Sabbath, was no lightweight. Nor was his drumming style. Having cut his teeth in heavy metal and hard rock acts, Powell brought machine gun-like precision along with a hammer-like power to the band and its repertoire, both old and new. Six weeks prior to the start of its 1986 U.S. tour, Emerson, Lake and Powell began rehearsing inside a London recording studio, recording each day's progress. As well as the live concert CD, this special double album features the best selection from what is now known as The Sprocket Sessions. For posterity the band's chatter and song fragments have been kept in place - it's all here, including a few mistakes. In the end, most fans should find the historical value in these recordings far outweigh the rough edges. It is also a chance to hear the progress behind an actual band rehearsal. Previously, these recordings could only be heard on illegal bootlegs, with considerably poorer audio quality, but after locating a first generation board recording, the tapes were digitally re-mastered and are now sonically better than ever. Since Emerson, Lake & Powell only lasted for one studio album and one tour (before Palmer returned) these tracks remain among the few professional recordings of the band made outside of its official LP. Enjoy a trip back to 1986 and the year of Emerson, Lake and Powell!

While nobody could argue huge musical talents of Emerson Lake And Palmer, a considerable portion of their reputation rests on their tremendous live shows and unfortunately, apart from Pictures At An Exhibition, none of the live recordings issued to date captures just how good they were. Even Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends, which came closest, was let down by the same problem as all of the ELP live recordings, poor mixing and poor production.
But now we have a shining example of just how good they were, even though here the P is Cozy Powell not Carl Palmer. But don't let that put you off. Cozy Powell had the reputation of being one of the best drummers in the business and here he shows why, doing a tremendous job and amply demonstrating that he was one of the very few drummers who stood any chance of filling Carl's position albeit only for one album and one tour.
This should be on any ELP fans list of must have recordings even if only for the superb performance of Lucky Man.

I just want to express a different point of view regarding this release. Being a long time ELP fan who is always hungry for a new release, I invested in this title due to all the glowing reviews. Now you have to remember these are rehearsals and as such the selections are a work in progress, and a revisiting of material the band has been performing for years. Parts have elements missing and the performances lack any inspiration or excitement. I have experienced similar situations where you get a better sound vs the original masters. Unencumbered with processing, excessive limiting, over mixing, etc. rehearsals can often sound fresh, live, like you are in the studio with the band (i.e. Yes's Tales From Topographic Oceans, on the Rhino label, has one such example). Unfortunately, that is not the case here. So perhaps, with this in mind, those who choose to pull the trigger on this release will do so from an informed perspective and some realistic expectations. Love live ELP!

the gods that are elp strut their stuff as only they can.this would have been a 5* rating if only 'learning to fly'& 'still you turn me on/watching over you'had been added.the show is a well known radio boardcast(later a bootleg).the 2cd is a rehearal set featuring several tracks performed during the tour.this is a cd set that no elp fan should be without.
