Back to an intimate three-piece and recorded in the Bahamas, this was ELP’s seventh studio album. Released in 1978 during the New Wave and Disco explosions, the album still went gold on both sides of the Atlantic and features some much-loved ELP songs. It was to be their last album for 14 years.

The real problem with Love Beach was timing, and that BLOODY AWFUL COVER. It came out during one of the most shameful periods for Britsh music journalism when being fashionable became more important than the music and if it wasn't punk it got a bad review, but strangely so many of the bands and albums that the press so savagely attacked have out lived, and out sold, the punk bands that where so slavishly praised.
The other problem was that it came after a run of truly stunning albums from a band that managed to live up to the hype of being simply the best prog rock band in the business, if this had been one of the early albums instead of the last I'm sure it would have had a better reception.
Basically what I'm saying is this is one of the few times that the small cd booklet is better than the proper album cover, it makes it easier to ignore the cover and listen to the music, and its worth listening to.

Best thing to say about love beach is the cover that cracks me up! The contents are pretty tragic though compared to their earlier albums!Published 12 months ago by Simon P.
