Emerson, Lake & Palmer were, without question, one of the greatest rock bands of the 1970s. Selling millions of albums across the globe, and with all three members winning awards for their dazzling musical ability, ELP were no ordinary group. Superlative in every aspect, with a pioneering attitude, they were adored by their legions of fans, none more so than in the USA, where they toured widely in the first half of the decade. Considered one of the genre-founding bands of progressive rock, ELP were the embodiment of the dinosaurs that punk sought to kill. However, just like their peers - Yes, Genesis and Pink Floyd - they survived punk's onslaught, continuing to make albums until the mid-90s and touring right until their final concert, a headlining performance at London's High Voltage Festival in 2011. This book charts their rise, from the origins of each member in The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster respectively, via every track on all nine of their studio albums recorded between 1970 and 1994. Key recorded live performances - such as 1971's Pictures at an Exhibition - are also included. In addition, there are overviews on all three member's solo projects, together with the albums and singles they made before forming ELP. With informed insight and information, this is the ultimate guide to the band's music - a must-own companion to Emerson, Lake & Palmer's recorded legacy.
