℗ 1973, 2014 Leadclass Limited

On the 40th anniversary of its release, Razor & Tie are proud to announce that Brain Salad Surgery, the definitive and indispensible album by Prog rock giants Emerson Lake & Palmer (ELP), will receive its greatest expansion ever.

Featuring the original HR Giger artwork, brand new mixes and previously unreleased material, Brain Salad Surgery will receive a 40th anniversary celebration worthy of its genre defining place in history. Brain Salad Surgery is an album that saw Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer displaying more creativity than most bands achieve in their whole lifetime.

“We are amazed that after 40 years, so much of the original recordings, photos and artwork are still usable. Some of it has never been released before, but it’s fascinating to hear how the recording progress. We are delighted that this new version will reveal some of these transitions,” says Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

1973’s Brain Salad Surgery, was ELP’s first album on their own Manticore imprint. From their rendition of the William Blake/Hubert Parry hymn ‘Jerusalem’ to Emerson’s adaptation of Alberto Ginastera’s “Toccata”, this was a world-class album. And that is before the side and a half long “Karn Evil 9.” It became their greatest statement, their calling card, the one every self-respecting music fan fell in love with, complete with their catchphrase in song, “Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends . . .”

Now celebrating its 40th Anniversary, this classic album has been full restored and reissued as two disc Deluxe Edition. The first disc containing a remastered version of the original album and the second a disc of alternative mixes and rarities.

Recorded in June–September 1973, Advision Studios and Olympic Studios, London, England
