The Unofficial EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER Audio Listing

This list represents the other side of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's recorded
work, the so called "bootleg" material.  There is an amazing legacy of live
recordings of ELP, covering all phases of their career, from the Guild Hall
in Plymouth 6 days prior to the Isle of Wight festival, to the 1998 USA/Canadian 
tour.  Some are unique in that the material may never have been played
before, or involving radical changes from the original studio version.

The audio quality of many of these recordings is obviously not up to
commercial standards in many cases, but this is often more than compensated for
by they shear exuberence of the playing.  There are, however, many recordings
which are of an excellent audio standard, and at times surpassing the official
live albums which may have been extensively remixed.  This is one of the prime 
advantages of hearing these "bootleg" recordings : it gives the listener the
opportunity to hear the band as they would normally sound in concert.
