Formed in 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were torchbearers of the progressive rock sound and one of rock's first super-groups. The world-conquering, stadium-filling prog giants helped to broaden the audience for the genre from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions and were one the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s. Their first 7 album releases all made the U.K. albums chart top 10 and U.S. top 20.
Works Volume 2 is ELPs sixth studio album, released in 1977, and now expertly remastered for the first time in 24 bit / High Density formats from the original tapes by world-renowned rock studio engineer Andy Pearce.
The album's brief, eclectic compositions cover an array of musical styles, combining stimulating originals and handsomely orchestrated renditions of 'Maple Leaf Rag', 'Honky Tonk Train Blues', and 'Show Me The Way to Go Home'. Works 2 showcases incredibly strong performances from all 3 band members Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer. Includes the massive, perennial, global hit single 'I Believe in Father Christmas', Greg Lakes beautiful composition, highlighting his strong voice and vibrant acoustic guitar.
The LP is the complete, remastered original album, with original sleeve artwork. Features a foreword on the 140 gram LP format by Greg Lake.
