Prog legends Emerson, Land & Palmer will release a new 10 LP/seven disc live box set in October.
Out Of This World: Live (1970-1997) will be released through BMG Records on October 29 as part of Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s 50th Anniversary celebrations.
Available for the first time, this new career-spanning box set showcases some of the biggest and most important live shows ELP have ever played. Encased in a special, matt black rigid slipcase with foil finishes, each LP has been reimagined with beautiful new designs as deluxe gatefold double LPs. Most of the LPs are previously unreleased on vinyl and have not been re-issued on CD for many years. ‘Phoenix’ 1997 has never been released.
“I could not think of a better way to celebrate this anniversary period for ELP. The box set is one of my proudest moments,” says surviving member Carl Palmer. “I know Keith and Greg would agree with me! Out Of This World is something I will remember for a long time to come. For me, this shows ELP at their very best throughout years of touring and recording. The box set represents the lifeline of our music in our time.”
Featured within each box set is an extended glossy photobook, with many intimate, rare and unseen images of the band from legendary photographers such as Lynn Goldsmith and Neil Preston. Foreword written by Jerry Ewing, Editor of Prog magazine.
High quality, fully-restored audio, remastered by ELP expert and renowned mastering engineers Andy Pearce and Matt Wortham.
