Those familiar with this album will already know a) this was ELP at thier peak live B) the recording was thin and muddy sounding. Well this 2016 remaster has vastly improved the sound. The music has punch clarity and hugely better EQ. Still there are moments where you feel you are at the back of the auditorium due to the reverb particularly on Greg Lakes vocal, but this no longer is an issue as the sound is just so much clearer. Toccata sounds violently terrifying and Tarkus never sounded better. Haven't played disc two for BSS yet but wanted to let anyone know who was in two minds as to whether to get the 3rd remaster in 10 years, yes do it is far better than any previous version by a long way.

At last , a great remaster of this classic live album, previous versions always sounded muddy and boomy to me but this is a great sonic improvement. As for the album itself it captures ELP at their peak, recorded on the 'Someone get me a ladder' tour featuring nearly all of the then current Brain Salad Surgery album as well as a great version of Tarkus, in 27 minutes of glory ! Other highlights include a faster more uptempo Hoedown , Emerson's Piano improvisations , which show what a great pianist he was. as well as a solo section of Greg Lake and Carl Palmer , one of the few drummers who made the drum solo exciting !! A double ( triple vinyl ) album for a knockdown price makes this an essential album for ELP fans , RIP Keith Emerson and Greg Lake

There is nothing that proves the worth of a band so well as a live album. If they can reproduce in concert what may have taken many takes in the studio, they are musicians of a high order. Emerson lake and Palmer show themselves to be exactly that with this double CD of live performances.

What a good live performance brings is a sense of risk: can they really take it that fast? There's a very complicated section coming - can they do it? The answer on this release is 'yes' and 'yes' and in many ways this is a better album to play than the studio versions, simply for the satisfaction of hearing three musicians at the top of their game performing live on stage.

Hoedown is good start. I have heard Keith Emerson do this in such a rush that it seems he is trying to beat himself to the end. This performance is much better controlled.
Jerusalem is good: Lake's voice was still at maximum strength. Toccata and Tarkus are excellent versions.

I find myself increasingly drawn to the second CD. 'Take a Pebble' is effectively split over the two, with the piano improvisations showing Emerson's mastery of the keyboards. But for me, the high spot is Karn Evil 9 performed in its entirety and live. It is a tour de force. I still listen in admiration at the sheer complexity of this piece in a first-rate live performance.

This is a recording of ELP at their very best. Some people berate prog rock, but I hope that everyone who listens to this album will recognise the musicianship and talent that has gone into it.

For Prog Rock fans, it is essential listening. Five stars.

By 70s VINE VOICE on 9 Sept. 2012
Format: Audio CD
This is the best live album(s) that ELP ever issued. Blistering versions of their albums up to BSS. Impossibly fast and virtuosic ( is that a word?). It is a shame that at 3 albums they still had tracks that had to be left out. At the time the public wouldn't have stood for a 4 vinyl album set ( so the story goes), it was expensive enough as it was, a shame as I couldn't get enough of ELP at the time.
Apparently they felt that another version of Pictures would have been a step too far. I for one would love to have Pictures, Rondo and nutrocker added, The overall length is not too long to add these tracks and still be a 3 disc set.
The only minus is the slightly below par sound, not that bad, so dont' be put off, when I say below par, I mean not super top notch, just a little flat. But again, why in these days of 780 minute cds, can't the whole set list be reproduced????

As a record of ELP at their finest, this is a must, must buy incredible artifact

Post script. The latest version 2016, still has naff sound, not terrible, but especially the second side has some thin recordings, must be the original tapes
