Always dug Tarkus and knew there had to be more. Thanks for the recs. Back in the day Atom Heart Mother and Ummagumma were the only other things I had to go to, even if they're not similar at all.

perhaps YK is already familiar, but as I was browsing this thread again, Far Out (Japan) came up on my playlist, and I think they would also fit pretty well into this category. I believe they only had the one album, but its definitely worth looking into!




*edit* is abbreviating Japan as J a p really that offensive? on initial post it showed up as I-LOVE-PENIS. this forum host or whatever kills me occasionally, hahaha. absolute PC hell.

Actually the self censorship is an attempt at making this forum semi work safe. Some of us have day jobs with strict IT guidelines. It's not 100% perfect but it's better than nothing. We all know what our personal ideologies are without using racial slurs.

YK check the prog thread on HRPS. Lots of good info, including a lot of under the radar bands.

I wasn't familiar with the ELP stuff but noticed similarities with

understandable, I guess I should have attempted to abbreviate Japan to JPN instead. I am after all known to be improper and inconsiderate at times. total lapse of judgement there Laughing

OT though, Far Out is recommended if you hadn't caught wind of them previously, and they were from Japan at that

if you like the hard-edged side of early ELP, you definitely want to search out the album "Beyond L'eng" by the italian group Le Orme. they don't really have any great records other than this one, which is a comp of stuff from their best period.

I'm going to respectfully disagree old chap, Felona E Sonora is great from start to finish. I've never heard the version with Peter Hamill doing English vocals, however......

This is pretty cool. Always thought the name Emerson Lake & Palmer hinted at a Crosby Stills and Nash sound, so i avoided.

Can't say i know enough to compare anything to this, but on the subject of Camel, MOONMADNESS is something that came to mind after a bit of listening.

It should also be mentioned that the first ELP album is unreal, totally great. Plus Pictures at an Exhibition, most of Trilogy, 70% of Brain Salad Surgery and one track from Works Vol. 1 (motherfucking FANFARE amirite lads?) are exceptional. They really are an amazing band with some incredibly gay shit in their discography.

Live at the Mar Y Sol Festival '72 and Nassau Coliseum '78 are two great, easily accessible live albums recently reissued. Welcome Back My Friends rules most of the time.

I forgot about a Nektar: A Tab in the Ocean until seeing it recommended on the previous page. Definitely check that one out. Need to track down a copy myself.

il balletto di bronzo- ys has its atmospheric moments amid all the ELP-esque noodles.

not like ELP much at all but completely atmospheric prog is the first side of geinoh yamashirogumi's osorezan.

Drumming on that album is insane.

Some good recommendations here, but very few particularly ELP-ish ones with the exception of perhaps the Ys albums.

Collegium Musicum is worth checking out, particularly the live album from '73. A little more jazzy (perhaps a hint of Focus) and maybe closer to the first ELP album, but highly recommended and the most ELP-ish I can think of at the moment!

Egg's self titled LP from 1970 is another organ heavy, classically inspired record, not as insane as ELP again, but still a great one!

In places Yes's "Tales From Topographic Oceans" and "Relayer" might appeal, Relayer in particular has some pretty insane synth moments, but not really similar to ELP.
