Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Brain Salad Surgery
Review by Josh Turner
I would not be the first to say that their music has not held up over the years, because it obviously hasn't. Before we count them out completely, it is important to point out that Emerson demonstrated many innovations in music long before the digital age.

Emerson, Lake and Powell - Emerson, Lake and Powell
Review by Larry Toering

King Crimson - In the Court of King Crimson written by Sid Smith
Review by Steve Alspach
Few bands in progressive rock have a more colorful past than King Crimson. As Sid Smith says in the preface, the history of King Crimson is the "triumph of spirit over adversity. And sometimes the triumph of adversity."

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Pictures at an Exhibition
Review by G. W. Hill

What a year it’s been, and not in a good way. Since the last issue of Music Street Journal went up at the end of January, we lost three great (and very different musicians).

Greg Lake and Geoff Downes - Ride the Tiger
Review by G. W. Hill

Apparently this album was recorded in the 80s, but has never before been released. I have to say that’s a shame. There is some solid music here. It’s definitely progressive rock, but on the AOR side of that equation. I’d say this is far closer to what you’d expect from Greg Lake than it is what you’d expect from Geoff Downes, but both men are represented well by it.

Review by G. W. Hill
This book is something very special. A good tag-line for this would be "come for the pictures, stay for the stories."

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - The Birth of a Band: Isle of Wight Festival
Review by Steve Alspach
Since the two products are essentially the same, this overall review is taken pretty much intact from the accompanying DVD review. Check out that one for more specific details on the video content as the DVD is essentially the same as the video side of this DualDisc - ed.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - The Birth of a Band: Isle of Wight Festival DVD
Review by Steve Alspach
The Isle of Wight Festival, is sometimes known as the "Kill the Messenger" festival for the hostility towards many of the performers (boy, that Joni Mitchell is a sensitive sort, isn't she?). It had at least one highlight - the "first debut performance" (um, how many debut performances can you have?) of The Supergroup (in caps) of the 1970s - Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Then And Now

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Works Volume 2
Review by Gary Hill

This album is definitely a mixed bag. Of course, part of that comes from the fact that it is literally a collection of odds and ends.
