[News] Emerson, Lake & Palmer to release “Out Of This World: Live (1970-1997)” boxset

Prog legends Emerson, Lake & Palmer will release a new 10 LP/seven disc live box set in October 2021. “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.

The new set pulls together five of the biggest and most important shows ELP played across their 50 illustrious years, including their performances at the Isle Of Wight Festival in 1970 and their headline show at the 1974 California Jam.

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.” 

Each album has been reimagined with impressive new artwork, reflecting various aspects of the band and their epic, ground-breaking music. The LP box contains 5 x deluxe gatefold double LPs with high quality, fully-restored audio mastering.

Most of the LPs are previously unreleased on vinyl; “Phoenix 1997” has never been released. The CDs have been out of print for many years and never released to this standard of artwork and audio. Each set comes complete with a 32-page, glossy photobook, featuring many intimate, rare and unseen images of the band from legendary photographers including Lynn Goldsmith and Neil Preston. Liner notes are provided by Prog Magazine Editor Jerry Ewing.
