EMERSON, LAKE & POWELL - Complete Collection [Cherry Red Records 3xCD Box Set] (2024) *HQ* - full

Musical visionaries Keith Emerson and Greg Lake planned to re-form ELP in 1984, however drummer Carl Palmer was unavailable. Into the frame stepped the legendary Cozy Powell, best known for his work with Rainbow and Whitesnake. EMERSON, LAKE & POWELL was born, and recorded some awesome music.
Now Spirit of Unicorn Music | Cherry Red Records are releasing “EMERSON, LAKE & POWELL – Complete Collection“, a wonderful 3xCD box set.
Included here is the band’s one and only studio release 1986’s ‘Emerson Lake & Powell’ featuring three bonus tracks, their live album ‘Live in Concert’, and a CD of demos and rehearsals, ‘The Sprocket Sessions’, only previously released in the 90s as a bootleg.

The band’s self-titled studio album delivers material familiar in style to ELP with long progressive rock tracks, but also commercial lite AOR melodic songs, and a classical theme (‘Mars, the Bringer of War’ by Gustav Holst, a piece previously performed by Lake during his tenure in King Crimson).
All recordings have been re-mastered by renowned engineer Andy Pearce (Rock Candy). If you are a fan of ELP, lite Prog AOR, or any of the 3 musicians involved, you cannot afford to have this part of the Emerson and Lake history missing from your collection.
