This is the definitive critical review of the music of Emerson, Lake and Palmer in concert, on record and on stage. During the '70s ELP were the biggest band in the world playing to colossal crowds and mounting ever more spectacular and flamboyant stage shows. When the band split in 1978 the legacy disappeared almost overnight. Featuring rare archive footage, every ELP studio album is reviewed and critically assessed by a leading team of critics, working musicians and musicologists to explore the secrets behind the phenomenal rise to success and the equally spectacular fall from grace of this legendary band. The DVD also includes rare archive film from the vaults which features ELP in performance of the key tracks from the first album. This is the ultimate review of a great band and a must have for every ELP fan.
