Focusing on Greg Lake's overly pretty radio tunes ("Lucky Man," "In the Beginning," etc.), this well-programmed single volume becomes almost definitive by finding room for the only Carl Emerson opus that stands the test of time--the still-powerful 20-minute suite from Tarkus. --Jeff Bateman

"ESSENTIAL ALBUM!!! If you aren't an ELP fan then this is the disc for you. It has all the hits: "Lucky Man", "From the Beginning", "Still...You Turn Me On" & "C'est La Vie". This has two more singles which barely scraped the charts (but still good songs): "I Believe in Father Christmas" & "Black Moon". This disc also contains some of their very best album tracks" "Tarkus", "Knife Edge" & "Trilogy". The only real improvement I would make would be to eliminate "Honky Tonk Train Blues" (which is really a very indicative choice of what they did) & replace it with the live version of "Peter Gunn". That would make this the perfect ELP compilation album. But, don't be confused; this is one band you should really get by the studio album."

"I bought this CD for Carl Palmer to autograph when I saw him with Asia again in April (he signed the 1982 Asia CD instead). Since I have grown to love prog over the past several years, I thought maybe I'll play this. You get "Fanfare for the Common Man", "Jerusalem", and "Lucky Man". Lacking are "From the Beginning", "Knife Edge", and "Pictures at an Exhibition" due to lack of space, though they appear on later, superior compilations anyway. I'm just starting to like ELP, and if you are as well, this is the way to go. This time, I will slowly add the studio and live albums, instead of just getting them all at once.
This particular release is long out-of-print, as they've changed labels a few times, recently to Shout! Factory in North America. My copy is an early West German import for US release."
