Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Brain Salad Surgery
Cut from a 24Bit / 96khz HD remaster of the original album by Andy Pearce in a replica of the elaborate original sleeve artwork with die-cut gatefold sleeve and fold out poster with foreword by Greg Lake. Considered by many to be one of rock’s original first super-groups, Emerson, Lake and Palmer helped to broaden the audience for the genre from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions. ELP formed in England in 1970 consisting of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). The band created a brand new world of music, combining classical and symphonic rock fused with beautiful vocals. Emerson, Lake and Palmer's most successful and well-realized album (after their first), and their most ambitious as a group, as well as their loudest, Brain Salad Surgery from 1973 was also the most steeped in electronic sounds of any of their records. The main focus, thanks to the three-part Karn Evil 9, is sci-fi rock, approached with a volume and vengeance that stretched the art rock audience's tolerance to its outer limit.
