Emerson, Lake and Palmer

40th Anniversary Reunion Concert DVD

Review by Gary Hill

While Emerson and Lake have toured recently, and Carl Palmer frequently performs ELP songs with his own band, real Emerson Lake and Palmer concerts are a rarity these days. In 2010, the trio reunited to celebrate forty years since they first got together. The concert was held in London and filmed for the purpose of preserving the experience. This DVD represents the document of that historic concert.

The concert was really trademark ELP, and while time has worn on the guys, the music still sounds fresh. The video and audio quality were both good, but not stellar. There’s a nice bonus in the form of a “making of” documentary. All in all, this video is recommended to both hardcore and casual ELP fans.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2011  Volume 5 at
