EMERSON LAKE & PALMER – ” Singles ” Deluxe Vinyl Box

Posted: August 27, 2022 in MUSIC

Although considered an “album” band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer created some great 7” singles during their career. On August 26th, 2022, BMG released the group’s first singles box set, a deluxe collection featuring 12 reproduced 2-sided 7” coloured vinyl singles pulled from U.K. and international pressings, complete with rare original picture sleeves and label artwork.

The box set also contains an extended booklet with detailed notes, a foreword from Carl Palmer, rare band photos, plus twelve 7″ companion art cards, inspired from the original single sleeves.

Released in celebration of ELP’s 50th anniversary, this 1971-1992 career spanning collection of 45’s have all been remastered by world-renowned ELP mastering engineer Andy Pearce and include amongst others, the majestic ‘From the Beginning’ alongside fan favourites ‘C’est La Vie’, ‘Lucky Man’, ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Stones Of Years’, ‘Tiger In The Spotlight’, B-side curio ’Living Sin’ and the UK Chart Number 2 classic ‘Fanfare For The Common Man’.

The single edit of “Fanfare” features Keith Emerson’s Yamaha GX1 synth after the trumpet intro, and a punchy dynamic to Greg Lake and Carl Palmer’s powerful rhythm section.

Palmer noted in the announcement, “This box set of singles is very important to the development of ELP. The music that you will hear opened the door to radio around the world, and then the musical concept of ELP was born.”
