Editorial Reviews

Pictures At An Exhibition was filmed at the Lyceum in London in December 1970. A slightly different version was
recorded for a live album release in Newcastle in early 1971. The film version was finally released in cinemas in 1973
and has had brief previous releases on VHS and DVD. This new special edition, forty years on from when it was
originally filmed, has the most complete version of the film available and is presented in the best possible sound and
picture quality, complete with the original seventies psychedelic effects. The band is in fantastic form and their
awesome musicianship is instantly apparent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's have a real review of the product, shall we? August 27, 2010
By Chuck
Verified Purchase
Having just finished reinforcing my sagging old postal box in anticipation of the oncoming barrage of hate mail, I'd like to present a few points about this release which you might find usefull.
The Amazon Editorial review is pretty complete and accurate so refer to that for DVD specifics (sans ranting and raving.) There's one thing they didn't mention since the DVD cover (insert actually) gets it wrong. The jacket states that the sound is PCM Stereo. It is most certainly NOT stereo, in PCM or any other format. It is the same mono soundtrack that the previous DVD had, at least as far as the P@aE concert is concerned. I've never previously seen the Belgian TV footage that is included here, but it also is simple mono, issued from both L & R channels. I listened carefully to the entire disc (over 100 minutes longer than the previous one!) in Sony headphones and there is not a single sound from either side that is not precisely duplicated on the other. Credit Eagle Rock Entertainment for having the sense to NOT create a fake digital stereotrack, which would've been easy with today's mastering software, and keeping the film's original integrity. I don't pretend to know if the original audio recordings still exist somewhere, but I DO know that remixing and sync-ing them for this edition WOULD be a hellatiously time-consuming and expensive project, and the few die-hard ELP fans like you and me out there just plain don't rate it. Fact of life...
That said, I'm delighted to have this even though I bought the 2001 version not long ago, and it's the ONE to have if you don't own this piece of prog history. The extras are extensive and as good or better than the centerpiece suite. As ELP were known for, they almost never played songs "straight" like you'd hear them on a studio album.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHEN will ELP's Camp Get This One Right?? July 30, 2010
I've said it before, in previous reviews: the ELP camp consistently &^@!!?!!'s on its fan base. After all these years...the constant complaint about this concert has been the superimposed psychodelic and cartoon crap. I read once that a "clean" videotape copy exists, sans the obnoxious effects. I've hoped against hope that someday "they'll" get it right...apparently not. After all, these are the same people who blew it with the "Beyond the Beginning" DVD ( California Jam footage out of sync with the audio, while stereo audio from the one-time FM simulcast exists; a disjointed montage of concert clips, etc ).

Fortunately for me, another reviewer posted that the "bonus" concert is nothing other than the Masters of the Vaults footage, already out for a few years. That footage, too, hasn't been changed...more superimposed images, albeit not as blatantly obnoxious as the Lyceum debacle. Tell me again just where the incentive for buying this latest rip-off is?

If anybody from ELP's management happens to be reading this...I won't buy this concert until you get it right. NOBODY WANTS MARVEL COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS ON TOP OF THIS PERFORMANCE. If you STILL don't understand, back up and read this again. That means actually going to the trouble of doing some research,and tracking down that pristine copy...we'll wait. We'd rather you take your time, and GET IT RIGHT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful film of an often underrated band August 28, 2010
Prog-rock, for sure, so if you don't like that; this isn't the thing for you. But if you like a creative combination of classical music, rock techniques and showmanship, and some great writing, this is the deal. Some of the music is very beautiful. And for those of us who're a bit older, it brings back the wonderful innocence and excitement people had at seeing this sort of thing live. Excellent.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a wasted opportunity April 11, 2011
I never saw ELP live but I remember seeing the movie of Pictures (along with 'Woodstock' and 'Grave New World' - a fantastic triple bill) back in the early 70's. That was a good version. This version, with all the needless psychedelic add-ons is dreadful. There is a place for cartoons and psychedelia - for example, they were an integral, and I think valuable, part of The Old Grey Whistle Test - but here, they are totally distracting and disruptive. I cannot bear to watch this movie. (Of course, the music is good.)

As with many other commenters, I hope that at some time the real video is released.

1.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same? November 10, 2010
I have both Pictures at an Exhibition DVD's the Lyceum DVD, and the more well known one.
While the Lyceum DVD offers a few extra songs, the cartoon overlays
are three times more annoying. I'm as big an ELP fan as anyone, but I'm going
to pass without even watching this DVD. One day, preferability before I pass
to see them 'Live in Heaven', I'd like to see the straight no cartoon version.
Hey boys (ELP) your fan base isn't growing, it's getting older and wiser.

Those cartoons. After all these years these marvel cartoons hasn't been removed from this ELP historical performance and now they are presented as psychedelic effects (laughs).

This is an authentic early performance with no gimmicks or overdubs. The band performance and image are very good and naive: K Emerson, in his brand new suit, fighting with the oscillators of his new MOOG synthesizer; G Lake is absolutely fantastic in the breathtaking acoustic solo; C Palmer was even then a solid drummer and it can be seen trying to get into the rhythm on a part of The Great Gates of Kiev.

The extra material was already available on previous DVD Master from the Vaults.

I recommend this DVD but I put one star just because the cartoons.
