The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

20 CD set presented in 10 x 10" box with 48-page book. The definitive Keith Emerson collection, featuring virtuoso performances from throughout his incredible career. Featuring material from his time in The Nice, and Emerson Lake & Palmer alongside his ventures into composing and performing movie soundtracks as well as his solo works. This deep dive into the creative life of Emerson is divided into five parts, beginning with his early years in The Nice and Emerson Lake & Palmer. The collection moves onto Keith's solo albums, his soundtracks and collaborations and finally ends with a set of stunning live performances which present his breath-taking keyboard skills to full effect. Presented in a 10 x 10" box, this definitive collection is accompanied by sleeve notes written by Jerry Ewing, editor of Prog magazine who casts a magnifying glass over the immense catalogue of this once-in-a-generation artist. Ewing speaks with many of Emerson's collaborators and delivers a fascinating history of the man behind the keyboard. The collection is also presented with a 48-page book containing many never-before-seen photos taken directly from the Emerson family archive. All 20 CD's have been mastered from the best available sources by renowned engineer Andy Pearce and include a previously unreleased show from BB King's in 2004. This incredible collection has been curated with the full involvement and blessing of the Emerson family, which has allowed for the inclusion of some unique and rare material. Whether you are a seasoned fan or just starting out on your Keith Emerson journey, there is no finer, deeper or more definitive collection available on the market. A tribute, in the truest sense, to one of the greatest musicians of all time.
