Editorial Reviews

Emerson, Lake and Palmer, known to all as ELP, were progressive rock's first supergroup. Keith Emerson (keyboards) came from The Nice, Greg Lake (guitar, bass & vocals) from King Crimson and Carl Palmer (drums) from Atomic Rooster. Formed in 1970, they were an instant success and went on to have a series of huge selling albums throughout the seventies before splitting up in the early eighties. Reunited in the early nineties they produced a new album, Black Moon, and began to tour again. In 1997 they embarked on a world tour, which included this superb performance at Montreux on July 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray EL&P Fantastic June 26, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Comment: Usually I don't like old farts giving concerts that represents the music they were able to make when they were young. I usually don't get the same "vibe" because it isn't the same sound I remember... analog and distorted. This Blu-ray changes that by starting out moderately and building to a crescendo that if you can stand to raise your volume to live concert levels (and your neighbors don't mind) you will get an experience that matches the concerts of younger days. The picture is stellar... giving you an up close and personal look at three aging rockers that can still knock your sox off! If you are a fan of EL&P... buy this Blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Choice in ELP Concerts on Disc June 19, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been a serious ELP listener since I bought their first LP, and have purchased several DVD's of their performances from the 70's, only to be disappointed by the abysmal sound and video quality. So I was glad to see that a stage performance was available in Blu-ray and 5.1 surround. I was also happy to read mostly glowing reviews of the disc on the Amazon site. So I bit, and now have my own review to offer.

I agree with most other reviewers that this disc was better than expected, but not all that you would like it to be either. My personal take in this disc: Performance=4, Picture=4, Sound=3.

I feel that considering their age (and mine), ELP gave a fine show. Energy and musicianship is about as good as you can expect. The disc showcases some of the best material of their career, especially those from ELP(first), Tarkus, Trilogy, Pictures, and BSS. However I have a hard time appreciating the selections from the later, and justly unsuccessful, LPs after BSS.

On the production quality side, this is certainly not the "technical audio and video gem" opined by another reviewer. It is a Montreux Jazz Festival Production, with post at their own facilities.

I checked with other web reviews of the disc to confirm my conclusions about audio quality, which are:
- Greg Lake's vocals are pretty badly buried in the mix, not center channel as you would expect, but disembodied in the L, R, and surrounds. Thankfully his guitars are well presented, especially the acoustic.
- Keith's keyboards are well recorded and mixed. No complaints except: why didn't he use his original Moog more than he did?
- Carl's drums are "all there", but not up front in the mix like they should be in a power-trio.

2.0 out of 5 stars wishing for the old days July 19, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Well to start Ive been a diehard #1 fan of ELP since I got BSS for my 16th birthday in 1976. Any serious ELP fan will find something to love about this Bluray. I love it because Im in the Home Theater biz so its a technical audio and video gem of the band I have loved and admired for 30+ yrs..
That being said most will have to agree, if they are honest, that most of the magic that made ELP a progressive rock legend is sadly gone. The laser intensity, the seamless, mind blowing musicianship has given way to a tired and obviously puppet like performance. Obvious is Keith's degenerative, now 3 finger playing and Greg's sorely lacking ANY real energy or soul in his performance. Carl is still Carl the one and only, banging away with much energy and is probably the cohesive bond still bringing these guys together.
I found the TARKUS arrangement to be the highlight and was played with as much more enthusiasm than most of the other songs (biased you bet).
To me the sound is excellent and earned an extra star.
The video looks great but the camera editing is amateurish at best with very annoying and awkward scene changes and panning.
Im sure to play this BR many times to come....... just sighing at the end wishing for the good ol days.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Star Excellent December 25, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you're an ELP fan, and I one of their biggest fans, this DVD will help you remember the days when rock ROCKED! This DVD has excellent video and audio, no weakness in either.

The program gives a full overview of the masters of Classic / Jazz & Rock fusion that is ELP. While I would have loved to have full versions of Tarkus, Pictures at an Exhibition and Karnevil 9, the time allowed me to enjoy one of the best groups ever.

Don't pass on this DVD at a great price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Expected December 24, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Better than I expected. Sound quality is excellent, and as usual Amazon lists the sound as just DTS 5.1 when it is actually HD Master. I always enjoyed ELP's unique style and energy, and if your a fan, unless your a stuck in the mud fan that insists they must sound exactly as they did 40 years ago, I think you will enjoy this. Lake's voice was a little weak in the beginning, but once he got warmed up he did a very respectable job on Lucky Man. Emerson's energy is astounding as well as his keyboarding talents and virtuosity, and Palmer did a very nice drum solo.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and will continue to enjoy it for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected! July 24, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are fond of ELP'ers music, you will love this title. Yes, 1970 is long gone, so you naysayers really need to get over it!

Performace = 5 stars, AQ/VQ = 5 stars. After watching this, I think Keith Emerson may be a better keyboard player than John Lord. Of course, we all know Lord ruled on keyboard, no.

Great performances get played more than once or twice - this one is gonna get spun quite a few times.
