  • Emerson, Lake and Palmer Keith Emerson- keyboards (lots of them) Greg Lake- bass and vocals Carl Palmer- drums and percussion Stanley Park Stadium Toronto, Ontario, Canada August 12, 1971 performance quality: close to an A, classic ELP recording quality: C/B (not too bad for this era, but there is some keyboard overload in parts of the mix.) source: audience tape (unknown low generation, probably either 1st or 2nd) runtime: 72:08 setlist: 1: the barbarian (cuts in) 4:42 2: take a pebble > piano medley 15:05 3: tarkus 24:56 4: knife edge 7:00 5: rondo (with drum solo) 20:23 comments: Sometime around this time I made my life's largest single album purchase at one time. Ten albums, one was Brave New World by Steve Miller another was Recall the Beginning a Journey from Eden by Steve Miller (lotsa luck finding that one now, mine is gone), one was Ten Years After a space in time, and one was the E.L.P. eagle cover debut album which to this day is my favorite work I've ever heard by a keyboard/bass/drum trio. There aren't lot of those (PFM is also quite good) and I have always tried to find any decent recordings of ELP, especially this tour, Pictures at an Exhibition, and Brain Salad Surgery. (from what I've heard, there was no tour for "trilogy" (unfortunately!) and even that song has very rarely been played live. It took until 1974 for the eagle to fly with Traffic (another great tour) but it flew right away for ELP, just as it did for Greg Lake's previous effort (King Crimson). It's about time for the dime to hear some more from this tour, and I got tired of waiting for the ELP Messiah. (I'm Jewish, so I know the messiah is not coming. Not even the ELP in Concert messiah.) this is the era of ELP I like best. Tarkus was the "new album" and the eagle one was the featured one in this, the 1st ELP tour of North America. The 1st stop in Boston was around this same time, outdoors on the Esplanade along the shore of the Charles River, but I've never heard a recording of that. (If anyone has a recording of that please post it) The second would come toward the end of the year, and was posted by shopkin in a pretty good quality.. This is an up close recording, maybe a little too close to a speaker, but most of it sounds pretty pleasant and it is a young fresh fellows ELP show, Greg's voice sounds very inspired. the recent shopkin post of ELP in Prov. 74 prompted me to dig this out, and also because it is the season for outdoor shows. this comes from the same fellow who provided Jeff Beck from Boston in 1971, may have been recorded with the same deck and mikes as that was. The deck was shut off at the ends of all the songs just moments after ending, so I have spliced it up the best I could with very little to work with, to make it less abrupt from song to song. It's pretty close to complete, not much missing from any of the songs. It does have a few flaws but nothing too drastic or lasting, the worst thing is some of the loudest keyboard parts overwhelm everything else in the recording, but there's no clipping, and no saturation in my copy. It sounds a little like there is because of the heavy lower-midrange frequencies (which tend to often be the most bothersome for auds, not just in this concert, but especially with ELP auds because of the synthesizer.) Do not sell this recording. Trade freely and losslessly.
