About ELP | The Birth of a Band

Continuing our series commemorating Oscar-Winning documentary director Murray Lerner, we are pleased to present Emerson Lake & Palmer “The Birth Of A Band.” It was ELP’s first proper live concert, their only previous gig having been a warm up in Plymouth the previous night. Playing in front of 600,000 people, at what remains the biggest festival in rock history, they became overnight stars with the press raving about their virtuosity and daring. They would go on from here to become multi-million selling artists, but this unique film—from the historic August 29, 1970 Isle of Wight Festival—is there right at the beginning.



Inspired by a deep respect for the innovative music of Emerson,Lake & Palmer, the four talented and dedicated musicians that comprise Eruption endeavor to go beyond a mere tribute. Without a single costume or wig in sight, they meticulously recreate the repertoire of the progressive rock movement’s first supergroup inviting their audience to immerse themselves in the bold and dazzling fusion of classical, jazz and rock that made ELP the groundbreakers that they were.

Few musicians are talented enough(or perhaps crazy enough) to take on the intricate pieces that make up ELP’s collected works but these four hardworking musicians - Steve Baker on keyboards, Ron Stewart on drums, Bill Plourde on guitar and vocals, and Bill Drake on bass guitar succeed in a way that must be experienced to be believed!
