Emerson Lake & Palmer - Live In Zurich 1970 - CD
Explosive, dynamic, captivating and enthralling; four words that are key in conveying to anyone the nature of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. But as is evident here, in their formative months the energy and appetite to explore and create music together would be
the group's ultimate drivers and would ultimately change the musical landscape forever. 1970 marked the first year of Emerson, Lake and Palmer, an ambitious power trio on track to change the attitude of those who didn't believe rock and roll could be
germinated with classical music. The purists and critics scoffed and chipped away; but art rock sophistos and ham-fisted hell raisers alike became enamoured with ELP. They had already conquered the Isle of Wight festival and now looked to Europe with their
reputation already making headlines. Their performance in Zurich on 4th December 1970, for RTB's 'Pop Shop', was one of the last dates of that first ever tour, undertaken to introduce them to the world after their formation the previous summer and to support
the recent release of their debut album.
London Calling revisits this incredible period when ELP shaped a new phenomenon in British rock music. Beautifully restored and professionally remastered original RTB broadcast, presented here with an 8-page booklet containing background notes and timeline photos.
