ELP's take on Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" Originally a musical depiction of a viewers progression through an art exhibition, the work is best known in the guise of Ravel's brilliant orchestral version.

Considered by many to be one of rock's original first super-groups, Emerson Lake & Palmer formed in England in 1970 consisting of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). The band created a brand new world of music, combining classical and symphonic rock fused with beautiful vocals. Their penchant for appropriating themes from classical music and the group's more nuanced, textured approach to symphonic arrangements set ELP apart from their more bombastic, guitar-based contemporaries of the time. Along with Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, and Rush, Emerson Lake & Palmer ushered in the Prog era and as one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970's having sold more than 40 million albums. ELP's dramatic flair, sincere passion, labyrinthine song structures, and symphony-worthy virtuosity proved that classical rockers could compete for arena-scale audiences as the band headlined stadium tours around the world.
