Info for Works Volume 1 (Remastered)
Formed in 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were torchbearers of the progressive rock sound and one of rock’s first super-groups. The world-conquering, stadium-filling prog giants helped to broaden the audience for the genre from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions and were one the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s. Their first 7 album releases all made the U.K. albums chart top 10 and U.S. top 20.
Works Volume 1 (originally released as 'Works') is ELP's fifth studio album. It was released as a double LP in 1977, and has now been expertly remastered for the first time in 24 bit from the original tapes, by world-renowned rock studio engineer Andy Pearce.
Each member of the group was allocated one side of the double LP album for their own compositions. The fourth side features songs written by the entire group. Keith Emerson wrote Piano Concerto No. 1 (Side A), Greg Lake wrote several songs along with Peter Sinfield, and Carl Palmer chose tracks of various styles.
Features ELPs anthemic and stylish 'Fanfare For The Common Man', a massive hit which reached No.2 in the U.K.; the brilliant, Keith Emerson compiled 'Piano Concerto No.1', performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra; excellent romantic songs from Greg Lake at the peak of his creativity, and hard rocking classical adaptations from Carl Palmer – featuring Joe Walsh on lead guitar for one song. The great jazz composer Harry South is present, and Carl contributes a powerful new version of 'Tank', first heard on the group's debut album. Works 1 took ELP's bombastic, keyboard-driven prog rock epics to the limit!

Emerson, Lake & Palmer
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 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.
