Emerson, Lake & Palmer were one of the most successful, innovative and ground breaking British groups of the golden age of progressive rock. As well as creating spectacular ‘live' shows that incorporated advanced technology and showmanship, they also recorded a cascade of powerful albums that sold in millions around the world. During 2016 and 2017 the band's musical legacy will be celebrated by BMG with an important and comprehensive re-issue program that will put the spotlight on ELP's nine studio albums as well as their "live" recordings and compilations.

ELP were formed in 1970 by flamboyant keyboard player Keith Emerson (formerly of The Nice), singer and guitarist Greg Lake (formerly of King Crimson) and drummer/percussionist Carl Palmer (formerly of Atomic Rooster). Blending jazz and classical music with a wide-screen hard-rock style, ELP were one of the torchbearers of the progressive rock sound and were one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1970s. By 1974 they were as big as Led Zeppelin as a live draw.

Originally released in 1972, Trilogy is cited by Greg Lake as his favorite Emerson, Lake & Palmer album. The album, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200, and No. 2 on the U.K. album chart, featured the band's only Top 40 single in the U.S., "From the Beginning," as well as a live favorite, a cover of Aaron Copeland's "Hoedown." Trilogy increased the worldwide popularity of the band.
