I agree with the first reviewer. 'Come And See The Show' provides a decent look at ELP's lengthy career, and it even includes 'I Believe In Father Christmas' from the 'Works, Vol. 2' album (extra pointers for that!). And the American radio hits are here too. 'Lucky Man,' and 'Karn Evil 9: First Impression, Pt. 2' and 'Toccata' all appear on this set. And Shout! Factory did a good job remastering this. The sound quality is superb!

But I have a question: Why didn't Shout! Factory include the entire 'Karn Evil 9 Suite' or maybe even a song like 'Brain Salad Surgery' or 'Tarkus.'

Bottom line: If you're going to make an ELP collection, PLEASE MAKE IT TWO DISCS. It is impossible to summarize ELP on a single disc, although another disc with the same title (minus the 'Come And See The Show') does the best job representing the band through one disc.

Overall, unless you are a very casual ELP fan or a collector that has to have everything ELP ever released, than get this. It's got great sound quality and most of the American hits, but if you want the BEST of ELP, check out 'The Essential Emerson Lake & Palmer.'

Recommended, but only for casual fans. But it's still a solid comp.

Greg Lake of ELP is the most underrated singer of the era. He has the range and pitch control of Art Garfunkle but in a completely different genre. The CD showcases Emerson on Keyboards (Toccata for example) but listen to Greg Lake on "Still you Turn me On" or "C'e La Vie". Palmer can play tympany too. The group covers classical songs well and has done more than any rock group to evoke the essence of classical music: the evokation of emotions from music.

This says "best of" but with a band as great as this, you really can't pick a best of.

The entire "Tarkus" album (1971) is a must-listen for any fan of progressive rock, yet there's not even one song from this album. Also, "Black Moon" (1992) is one of their better songs and one of their more popular, and that isn't here either.

"Pictures at an Exhibition", "Brain Salad Surgery" and their self-titled are all great albums as well. And even their least-accepted albums have a few songs you should definitely check out. "Memoirs of an Officer and a Gentleman" from "Love Beach" (1978) and "Hand of Truth" from "In the Hot Seat" (1994).

If I were to pick a best of, I would include at least one song from each album, something this compilation fails to do. There are no songs from Tarkus (Their best album, in my opinion) and nothing from their post-1977 work. Do your research if you want a best of compilation.

Or, just go pick up every album, there are only 9 studio albums (10 counting Pictures At An Exhibition Live), and they are all fantastic and unique.

The first time I saw this, my heart rate jumped a bit...then dropped back down, realizing that this is yet another greatest hits collection. It is indeed ironic, given the title for this effort, that there are at least two complete 1977 Works Tour concerts accessible at Wolfgang's Vault, yet currently unavailable as even a legal download! You can listen to the streaming audio free ( and if you happen to have a recording device with analog inputs... ). I just don't understand these guys: ELP released two massive sets ( The Manticore Vaults ) of generally horrendous quality bootleg shows; bad recordings and a few embarrassing moments for the band, performance-wise! Yet they ( or their label ) continue to sit on pristine, well-recorded, STRONG performances from 1977...?? What gives, guys?
This album isn't a bad set by any means; it's just that there's nothing new here. It's the same old portrait with yet a new frame! ELP fans deserve better than this reconstituted pan of old beans.

The collection is good even if the songs are threaded together without any major theme. Probably genuinely artistic in their unique way the musicians can sound pretentious and overdone if taken in too large of a dose. This collection is some of their better work..

Sounds a lot better than when I listened to some of these songs on my 8 track player that I had in my 1965 Chevy Impala. I missed not having access to this music and it was nice to get back at such a reasonable price.

This is a fine, representative collection of classic Emerson Lake & Palmer tunes. All of the performances are good, and the album does a great job of summarizing the work of a unique ensemble. I was just developing my own musical awareness when these gentlemen started performing as ELP; coming from a classical-music family, I was delighted to find in their work something at once familiar and modern that even my mother could appreciate. Sadly, all of those vinyl albums are "well listened to" now, and have been for quite a while... Now that my youngest has reached that same stage and is developing his own tastes in music, I was having a terrible time explaining to him what "style" I listened to - and what should I find on my first trip to Amazon's MP3 store but the perfect collection for introducing him to the concept of a three-piece rock combo reinterpreting classical music. From there he and I wandered through the idea of "covering" famous tunes, took a YouTube trip through some of Aaron Copeland's orchestral works, and ended up at a place where "orchestra" makes sense in the same way "band" does. Of course this "Best Of" album doesn't have "all of my favorites" - that collection would be far too large - but "Come And See The Show" is broad enough to be a great ELP primer for a young man and a pleasant reminder for an older one. (Added bonus: now I recognize at least a little of the noise coming from my son's room; this is an improvement.)
