Emerson, Lake and Palmer's entire catalog will be reissued over the course of the next year. The first batch of three albums — E.L.P, Tarkus and Pictures At An Exhibition — arrives July 29, 2016. 1971's Tarkus is a concept album about a creature that was part-armadillo, part-tank.

Side one of the original LP is occupied by the 21-minute title epic track, beating both Genesis' "Supper's Ready" and Yes' "Close to the Edge" by a year, writes AllMusic. Unlike Yes' cut-and-paste technique to obtain long suites, Tarkus is a thoroughly written, focused piece of music. It remains among the Top Ten classic tracks in progressive rock history.
