New 2017 remaster of the original 1994 album
Released on vinyl for the first time!
Foreword on the LP Audio by Greg Lake
ELP's ninth and final studio album was first released in September 1994. Produced by Keith Olsen, In The Hot Seat was an appropriate name, given that the trio was under pressure to consider adopting more "commercial" material. Keith Emerson had also begun to suffer weakness in his fingers that affected his playing and had to undergo surgery to cure the problem. Understandably, he approached the sessions with some trepidation and would comment: "It was a tough time to make a record."
Nevertheless, ELP devised many great tracks, notably the excellent "Hand of Truth," that launches this 10-track set. Greg Lake gives a foreword on the songs, which include the heartfelt ballad "Daddy" and Bob Dylan's "Man In The Long Black Coat."
All ELP's album tracks have been carefully re-mastered by world renowned studio engineer Andy Pearce and made available in a variety of formats. They include high quality CD, freshly cut vinyl LP and HD digital download. At the special request of the late Greg Lake, the LPs are presented on 140-gram vinyl to ensure a superior, high quality sound.
