be available September 25th as well.

Both albums will also be digitally, specifically mastered for iTunes by Grammy-award winning engineer Brad
Blackwood (Alison Krauss & Union Station, Maroon 5, North Mississippi Allstars, Saving Abel).

AXS TV will also exclusively premiere the Emerson, Lake & Palmer 40th Anniversary concert this August. The
legendary Rock Band reunited to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and headlined London's first High Voltage Rock
Festival. This was the historic moment when Emerson Lake and Palmer performed for the first time since 1998.
This spectacular performance with extravagant special effects and lighting recaptured the magic and musical
genius of Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer as they performed their greatest hits in front of thousands of
fans and leaving a lasting memory of the stunning musicianship of these three legendary performers.

Razor & Tie’s full catalogue re-issue campaign will continue with the release of newly expanded, re-mastered,
editions of four additional ELP classic albums: Pictures At An Art Exhibition (1971- Live Album), Trilogy (1972-
Studio Album), Brain Salad Surgery (1973- Studio Album), and Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never
Ends – Ladies & Gentlemen (1974- Live Album).

Considered by many to be one of rock’s original first super-groups, Emerson Lake & Palmer 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. Their penchant for appropriating themes from classical music and the group’s more nuanced,
textured approach to symphonic arrangements set ELP apart from their more bombastic guitar-based
contemporaries of the time.     This subtler and more sublime approach carries on today in the expansive
atmospherics of Radiohead and Muse and also in the prog-influenced sphere of band’s like Porcupine Tree, Dream
Theatre, Opeth and many others, making ELP one of the more relevant torchbearers of the progressive rock sound.
Along with Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, and Rush, Emerson Lake and Palmer ushered in the Prog era and as one of
the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970’s having sold over 40 million albums. ELP’s dramatic
                                                                                                                   2
flair, sincere passion, labyrinthine song structures, and symphony-worthy virtuosity proved that classical rockers
could compete for arena-scale audiences as the band headlined stadium tours around the world.
