Our Price: $249.99

  • An incredible British Sunray pressing of this ELP classic with both sides earning our highest grade of Triple Plus (A+++)

Super Hot Stamper

Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Trilogy

  (Item #: emerstrilo_1810) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This UK Island pressing has two outstanding sides - both came in right behind our Shootout Winner, earning nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades for their BIG, BOLD sound
  • From The Beginning has the kind of Tubey Magical liquidity that made it a staple in practically every stereo store I walked into in the '70s
  • An excellent recording by the Prog Engineering Master, Eddie Offord, that really shines on a pressing as good as this one
  • "By 1972, Eddie Offord's recording and producing techniques had reached a peak. He provided a lush, comfy finish to the album that made it particularly suited for living-room listening and the FM airwaves... Every track on this album has been carefully thought, arranged, and performed to perfection..."

Super Hot Stamper

Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Brain Salad Surgery

  (Item #: emersbrain_1807_1812) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Superb Double Plus (A++) sound throughout - it took us a very long time to figure out which pressings were potentially the best sounding on Brain Salad Surgery
  • Forget the awful domestic pressings and whatever crap is on Heavy Vinyl - these killer UK pressings are the only way to fly
  • Eddie Offord engineered, brilliantly, so if you like the sound of Yes, or this band's first three albums, this LP should be a real kick, especially if you turn it up good and loud
  • Pretty darn quiet too! Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Emerson, Lake & Palmer's most successful and well-realized album (after their first), and their most ambitious as a group, as well as their loudest..."

Hot Stamper

Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Tarkus

  (Item #: emerstarku_1804_1811) 

Our Price: $89.99

  • This UK copy of the band's sophomore album earned very good Hot Stamper grades on both sides
  • The best British pressings took top honors for sound in our shootout, with the kind of sweetness, openness, Tubey Magic, correct tonality, presence without aggressiveness, well-defined note-like bass, extended airy highs and all the rest that are the hallmarks of the Hottest of the Hot
  • Emerson admitted that Tarkus was one of his favorite albums, "not least because the title track has taken on a life of its own."
  • "Tarkus is a thoroughly written, focused piece of music. It remains among the Top Ten classic tracks in progressive rock history..."

Emerson Lake & Palmer - Trilogy

Our Four Plus Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: emerstrilo_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

This British Island Sunray LP has THE BEST SOUND WE’VE EVER HEARD for this album; it ranks right up there with the best sounding copies of the first album, a Top 100 Demo Disc! From The Beginning has the kind of analog magic that made it a staple in practically every stereo store I walked into throughout the '70s. (Even if the crappy speakers they were demonstrating didn't have much bass, this record had the kind of bottom end that would make you think they did.)

Emerson Lake & Palmer

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: emersemers_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

The Brit copies may take top honors for side one ("sweetness, openness, tubey magic, correct tonality, presence without aggressiveness, well-defined note-like bass, extended airy highs") but the Hot Stamper Cotillion copies KILL on side two. They really ROCK, with greater dynamic contrasts and seriously prodigious bass, some of the best ever committed to vinyl.

The Brits tend to be a bit too "pretty" sounding. They're too polite for this bombastic music. This music needs the whomp down below and lots of jump factor to work its magic.

Emerson Lake & Palmer

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: emersemers_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

TWO SUPERB SIDES! We just finished a MAJOR shootout for this great album, and this Top Copy is going to make an AMAZING Demo Disc for the Lucky Man who takes it home! If you’ve got the system to play this one loud enough, with the bass power this album demands, you are in for a treat. The organ that opens side two will rattle the foundation of your house if you're not careful. This music really needs that kind of megawatt reproduction to make sense. It's big bombastic prog that wants desperately to rock your world. At moderate levels it just sounds overblown and silly. At loud levels it actually WILL rock your world.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Pictures at an Exhibition

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: emerspictu_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Minty looking original Island British Import LP has some of the best sound we have ever heard for this album. This copy KILLED a bunch of other Brit imports we played it against. It wasn't even close. This pressing was so much more TRANSPARENT -- you could hear into the crowd in a way that no other copy managed to let you do. When the band started playing the sound was much more clear and present than the other Brit copies we played.

Great live sound thanks to EDDIE OFFORD.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Tarkus

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: emerstarku_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This British Island Sunray pressing has EXCELLENT A++ SOUND on BOTH SIDES. If you prog rock junkies are looking for your next fix, this killer copy is the hot ticket! Both sides have got it going on; you won’t find this kind of energy, transparency, or presence on most copies out there! This one is full of tubey magic on both sides, yet clean, clear, and open throughout. The transparency is OFF THE CHARTS.
