Legendary progressive rock giants Emerson, Lake and Palmer were formed in 1970 by the brilliant keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson, gifted singer / composer / guitarist Greg Lake and dynamic drummer / percussionist Carl Palmer. Torchbearers of the progressive rock sound, ELP jointly created the supergroup concept and are among the most important bands in the history of rock music, helping to broaden the genre audience into tens of millions. One of the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s, ELP’s first 7 albums reached U.K. Top 10 and U.S. Top 20. Despite the tragic deaths of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake in 2016, their inspirational music lives on. This new 4LP Anthology showcases the immense musical talents of all three members, and contains a wealth of career-spanning ELP audio treasure.
