Drummer Carl Palmer announced, on May 15, the release of Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy Live​, a new two-disc set. Palmer is the sole surviving member of progressive rock giants Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The title comes from BMG on​ June 29 and encompasses two concerts captured together on ​CD ​and ​DVD. Pre-order it here.

The CD, recorded on November 25, 2014, includes a full-length version of ELP’s Tarkus album, plus other music from Palmer’s career, including King Crimson’s “21s​t Century Schizoid Man,” before a sell-out crowd at Buffalo, New York’s Tralf Music Hall.

The DVD is a two-hour tribute show to Keith Emerson, recorded at Olympia Theater in Miami, Fla., on June 24, 2016. The performance features special guests Steve Hackett (Genesis), Mark Stein (Vanilla Fudge) and David Frangioni. The show includes ELP classics such as “Hoedown,” “Karn Evil,” “Fanfare For The Common Man” and “Jerusalem.”

The combo release is ​presented with a deluxe booklet including sleeve notes by Palmer. See complete track listings below.

Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy was formed in 2001 and includes Simon Fitzpatrick on guitar and Paul Bielatowicz on bass. The power trio takes classic ELP works and reconstructs them with drums, bass and guitar rather than replicating the unique keyboard/synth work of Emerson. “It’s metal prog-rock playing Emerson, Lake and Palmer,” Palmer says. “It’s original and unique, and that’s important to me.”
