Description

Pictures At An Exhibition on LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Emerson, Lake & Palmer were one of the most successful, innovative and ground breaking British groups of the golden age of progressive rock. As well as creating spectacular 'live' shows that incorporated advanced technology and showmanship, they also recorded a cascade of powerful albums that sold millions around the world. During 2016 and 2017 the band's musical legacy will be celebrated by BMG with an important and comprehensive re-issue program that will put the spotlight on ELP's nine studio albums as well as their 'live' recordings and compilations. ELP'S third album Pictures At An Exhibition (1971) has been credited with inspiring many young musicians to embrace and study classical music. Based on the group's enthusiastic interpretation of the famous work by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, it was a major hit and reached Number 3 in the U.K. and Number 10 in the U.S. album charts. Pictures was recorded on March 21st, 1971 at Newcastle City Hall, where Emerson made use of the hall's thunderous pipe organ. The LP reissue comprises an excellent new remaster cut from the original master tapes.
