Emerson, Lake & Palmer – self-titled Japan LP

A high quality Japanese pressing of the first album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, featuring the song, Lucky Man.


Offered for sale is a mid-1970s Japanese pressing of the 1971 debut album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, featuring the song, Lucky Man.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer may have been hated by critics, but their brand of progressive rock certainly pleased the public, and their records sold well throughout the 1970s.  Their debut album, featuring the track, Lucky Man, got lots of airplay and introduced a lot of listeners to both classically-tinted progressive rock and the sounds of the Moog synthesizer.  Most of their albums are sought out by audiophiles, as well as prog rock fans, because they are quite well recorded as rock albums go.

The copy offered for sale is a high quality Japanese pressing of their debut LP.  Although it’s a second issue, dating from 1975 or so, it was pressed from the same stampers as the original 1971 issue.  The original catalog number, 8033A, is stamped in the dead wax.

The record is a beautiful M- and appears to have had virtually no play.  The cover is VG++, with just a bit of wear at the corners.  The original obi is included; it has a small 1/4″ tear on the back at the bottom.

A great copy of a record that sounds terrific.
