Editorial Reviews

Emerson, Lake & Palmer, also known as ELP, are an English progressive rock super group. They found success in the 1970s and sold over forty million albums and headlined large stadium concerts - one of the largest at California Jam (Cal Jam) in 1974 was in front of 200,000 people. The band consists of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). They are one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands and from the outset focused on combining classical pieces with rock music. The legendary Rock Band reunited to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and headlined London's first High Voltage Rock Festival. This was the historic moment when Emerson Lake and Palmer performed for the first time since 1998. This spectacular performance with extravagant special effects and lighting recaptured the magic and musical genius of Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer as they performed their greatest hits in front of thousands of fans and leaving a lasting memory of the stunning musicianship of these three legendary performers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply An Amazing Show August 27, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is quite simply an amazing show. I just got the DVD of it today, and it looks and sounds very good, indeed. The song listing is the same as the double disc CD that came out late last year. You can still hear the squeals and screeches that were heard on the CD. However, the squeals do not seem as annoying to me on this DVD. It's not a perfect concert. It does have its mistakes. The picture quality is suberb, with the images clear and crisp. Really nice use a camera angels make this show all the more pleasing to the eye. Great lighting as well. Nice visuals. Additionally, the color schemes are very good. According to the info on Amazon the single disc runs 210 min., however that is not correct. A bit of a typo, I'm afraid. Total time is 120 minutes. The concert runs 91:45, and the new documentary runs 28:15. The documentary consists of Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the live concert director, the DVD editor, and the producer as they talk about various ELP related topics. The documentary is not one of those discussions with all the participants sitting around some table, instead each person is at a different location, interviewed, then edited as a whole piece. It is well done, though at this moment I've only seen a quick sampling of it. This concert may indeed be their last. Highly recommended for any music fan.

I have seen some other video of these guys and also bought the ELP Beyond the Beginning ripoff and none of them come close to this. The only thing better in some ways is their shortly filmed performance at Isle of Wight.

Song selection of this is good. Half of their first album and Bitches Crystal off of Tarkus are represented here. We also get Pictures at an Exhibition which is announced just like on the original live album of the same name. I have a few hundred concert DVDs but hardly any come close to two hours of solid well perfomed music.

Even Lucky Man is performed this time like it was on the original album complete with drums and the moog solo at the end (it stands out so much that I do dare call it a solo).

Very good and I thought Live at Montreaux was going to be the last. I just have to thank these guys for putting this on at their ages. Carl Palmer is very fit and Emerson looks better than I have seen him before. Except for Lake, these guys almost appear more youthful than at the beginning of the Black Moon era.

Greg, I am sorry but you need to start pedaling that bike old man. I love your voice from the early years and you try very hard here and do achieve for the most part. If you were 100 pounds lighter I know you would blow everyone else away but good enough for me on this performance.

I do really respect Lake and do not mean to appear cruel here but when you have gifted talent like him, I believe you should hone yourself like a marble statue. Palmer is a very solid skinsman and has amazed over the years, he always been consistent.

And finally after years of pondering, who is better; Emerson or Wakeman?

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect? No. Great? Definitely! October 1, 2011
Format:DVD
I started watching this with some trepidation, after reading some of the negative reviews here. Yeah, I've known about Keith's hand-dexterity issues, and I'm well aware that Greg is as big as a house now, and has lost some of his vocal ability. At the same time, there isn't a lot of full-length video concerts of these guys, so I was thrilled to know that this was out. Sure, there are a few flubs...Greg's voice isn't what it once was...not everything is perfectly tight. But as Greg points out in the documentary, here they are at sixty-plus years old, playing complex music written and performed when they were in their twenties. Going into this with that conceit, I thoroughly enjoyed this concert. For the most part, these guys still perform near the top of their game, and yes, this is music that is often difficult technically, and would pose a threat to any musician half their ages. And to hear them do most of Tarkus, as well as the bulk of the first album was worth the admission alone. Sure, I wish there had been more from Trilogy and Brain Salad, but they apparently had to cut their set due to time constraints. Anybody who watches this expecting perfection from sixty-year old musicians who hadn't performed together for twelve years is giving this show short shrift! (And Carl Palmer?? Still the third greatest drummer in the world to me, behind just Neil Peart and Bill Bruford!)

I have just about everything that has ever been released by ELP, except maybe those Manticore Bootleg releases from several years back. I guess I'm not entirely compulsive about ELP, but they were always an important part of my life.

This concert was okay to watch. As always, Keith and Carl show a great deal of energy with their art of performance. But, they did sound a little slower in their performance for this show, which is expected of any artist performing at their ages. If they were to release this concert as a CD only, I would recommend that they speed up the tape a little bit. Then, it would probably sound just fine.

I feel like I've really watched Greg Lake grow up. I've seen his little changes in his appearance and his probably questionable health issues, all his life. He was definitely a handsome young man in the early seventies. I envied him, as well as admired him, back in his earlier days. He was my hero, and I guess he still is. I mean, we are all grower older, and some of us are a little thicker than we use to be. So Greg, please, take care of yourself and get some exercise, and start eating right. If you're hanging out with Steven Seagal and hitting up all those "all you can eat" buffets up the road, then you need to stop that. I could stand to lose about 20 pounds myself, but you should try to lose about 40. I'm not criticizing you, Greg, I'm just concerned for you. One day, you're not going to be able to perform because of your health, and that will be a sad day for all of us.

Anyway...

This concert did seem like they tried to stick to the limitations of what they've chose to do on stage for the last 20 years.
