First official Emerson Lake & Palmer book unveiled

ELP will be released in 2021

The first official, illustrated book to tell the remarkable and unique Emerson, Lake & Palmer story has been announced by drummer Carl Palmer. Created from over a quarter of a million words spoken by the musicians in original and unpublished interviews, recordings and films, the text is illustrated throughout with classic, rare, private and recently discovered photos of the men, the band, and the world they created.

Palmer created and edited the book with the “full cooperation” of the families of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, who both died in 2016.

ELP will be available in three deluxe editions sometime in 2021. The Classic will be a large format 272 page, full-color hardback; the Signature will include signed copies of the Classic, housed in a bespoke presentation box and include extra, rare items; while the Ultimate will be very limited in number and content.

The book will be available only via Rocket88 and will ship to most countries around the world.

Fans are encouraged to sign up to the book’s website to receive their name printed in the book, get an early discount when pre-orders start, and to learn more information as it becomes available.
