ELP - Once Upon A Time In South America (2LP)
A superb collection of live Emerson, Lake and Palmer concert performances recorded in South America:
• Estadio Chile, Santiago, Chile (1 April 1993)
• Obra Stadium, Buenas Aires, Argentina (5 April 1993)
• The Metropolitan Theater, Rio de Janiero, Brazil (16 August 1997)
This collection covers some of the best known hits of ELP, The Nice and King Crimson and is especially poignant with the recent passing of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake. Good enough to crank it up to 10, these tracks on this LP compilation are complete, as performed in concert by ELP and you're hearing them exactly how the songs were performed on stage.
Emerson, Lake & Palmer were progressive rock's first supergroup. Greeted by the rock press and the public as something akin to conquering heroes, they succeeded in broadening the audience for progressive rock from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions of listeners, creating a major radio phenomenon as well. Their flamboyance on record and in the studio echoed the best work of the heavy metal bands of the era, proving that classical rockers could compete for that arena-scale audience. Over and above their own commercial success, the trio also paved the way for the success of such bands as Yes, who would become their chief rivals for much of the 1970s.
