EMERSON LAKE & PALMER ’21st CENTURY SHIZOID ROCK’ :OG-630 / 707 (plus FREE)

ELP 21st S R. 4ELP 21st S R

ELP 21st S R. 3

This may be the easiest to find OG release of them all.

“Total duration: 34:28  A very fragmented album of an average audience recording.”
“Track 1 – 4 is from an unknown show, most likely between April and June 1971.
One can hear Keith Emerson talking about ‘a new album’ (TARKUS) which will be released – he says – in August; ‘maybe earlier’. The last track – Lucky Man – is from the Korakuen Stadium / Japan – show in July 1972.

OG-630:

Side 1: The Barbarian (6:03) / Rondo (14:51) [track is cut in the middle of the drum-solo.]                             Side 2: Take a Pebble (4:33) [cut just before the Greg Lake-part is about to begin] / Knife Edge (5:27) [cut just before the last verse] / Lucky Man (3:34) [Tokyo 22 July ’72 “much better sound-quality”]

I am not sure if there are two different versions of OG-630 – with & without two tracks by Free added to end of side 2 – or if auction sellers are just quoting the insert without actually having listened to the record to verify.

 

OG-707:
“Some copies of this album included two bonus tracks with Free, who supported ELP on the 1972 Japan-tour.”

Track list for the second pressing: 

Side 1: Take A Pebble (Emerson, Lake and Palmer)/ Knife Edge (Emerson, Lake and Palmer)/ All Right Now (Free)/ Fire And Water (Free)
Side 2: Barbarian (Emerson, Lake and Palmer)/ Gong (Emerson, Lake and Palmer)

***

It’s unclear where exactly the two Free tracks come from. Both tracks can be found on this rare Japanese bootleg, recorded during their first Japan tour in April/May 1971:

Free Live Japan
