Record Label: Sony Music * Catalog#: I98 CD99644 Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Prog Rock trio. ELP found extraordinary success in the 1970s and have sold in excess of 40 million albums.

In my mind (and to my ears) this is the best remaster of the best album in the ELP catalog. There is no clipping during Tocatta and the music sounds rich, full and crystal clear. What a nice change from the dreadful 2007 Shout remaster which is so compressed it may well damage your home speakers. As another reviewer pointed out, "drums don't ever sound like that." This version is a little louder than the 1993 Victory remaster but a smidge less bright, though this point is very subjective. (You may find th..
