Next month, veteran rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) will release its performance from the 1997 Montreux Jazz Festival on CD.

Live at Montreux 1997 will be released on Friday, September 11th. It will mark the first time ever that the classic concert will have been released on CD. The concert’s thirteen-song set list is spread across two discs and features some of the band’s biggest hits including: ‘Karn Evil 9’ (‘Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends’), ‘Hoedown,’ ‘Take A Pebble,’ ‘Lucky Man,’ ‘Tarkus,’ ‘Pictures At An Exhibition,’ and ‘Fanfare for the Common Man.’ Also included with the double-disc recording is a handful of previously unreleased songs such as ‘Touch and Go,’ ‘Creole Dance,’ and ‘Carmina Burana.’
