Chock full of sensational instrumental versions of ELP and ELP-inspired classics, featuring the prodigal talents of Simon Fitzpatrick on guitar and Paul Bielatowicz on bass, Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy Live (the DVD performed and recorded when he was supposed to be celebrating his 50th anniversary as a professional musician) is a simply divine audio and visual experience.
On the DVD performance, our dynamic trio are accompanied by The Center For Contemporary Dance Ensemble, including during the Emerson tribute "Pictures At An Exhibition". It's been said down the years that both Palmer and Emerson were inspired by the piece and it gave them some early common ground. [The booklet also comes with brand new sleeve notes by Carl Palmer].
"I am so pleased to have been able to dedicate a DVD to Keith and Greg," Palmer has said about this release. "I am still thinking about all the great times we had. The music is strong and my memories will be with me for ever! Emerson Lake and Palmer Lives On!"
