Emerson, Lake & Palmer were one of the most successful, innovative and ground breaking British groups of the golden age of progressive rock. As well as creating spectacular 'live' shows that incorporated advanced technology and showmanship, they also recorded a cascade of powerful albums that sold in millions around the world. During 2016 and 2017 the band's musical legacy will be celebrated by BMG with an important and comprehensive re-issue program that will put the spotlight on ELP's nine studio albums as well as their 'live' recordings and compilations. The band's second album Tarkus (1971) saw ELP take a new direction with yet more complex keyboard sounds. The title track took up the whole of side one of the original LP, and defined the band's exultant, bombastic approach."Jeremy Bender," "Bitches Crystal," "The Only Way (Hymn)," "Infinite Space (Conclusion)," "A Time And A Place," and the rocking "Are You Ready Eddy?" complete this groundbreaking Number One U.K. album that also shot to Number 9 on the U.S. charts.
