Background: Released in early 1977, Works was the fifth studio album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The LP reached #9 on the UK charts and #12 in the U.S.
Works was a double album with the first three sides devoted to solo material, with each member getting a full side. Side four had two tracks by the entire band.
Though no one talked about it at the time of its release, this album reflected a growing split within the group. Originally, the trio’s members, tired of sublimating their musical identities within the context of ELP, each intended to do a solo album of his own. Reason prevailed, however, probably aided by the group’s awareness that the combined sales of the solo albums issued by the five members of Yes the previous year were a fraction of the sales of Yes’ most recent records. The result was this double LP; essentially three solo sides and one group side, it is the most complex and demanding of the group’s albums.
