Prog-rock supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer are well-known as an album band – as in, clear your calendar for the next hour, press play and enjoy the ride. But, since forming in 1970 the English group has also dropped some truly noteworthy 7-inch singles throughout their career.

The band is now shining a light on those releases with the release of their first ever singles box set, aptly titled Singles. This deluxe collection, which arrives August 26th via BMG, features 12 reproduced two-sided 7-inch singles pulled from UK and international pressings complete with rare original picture sleeves and label artwork. The box set also contains an extended booklet with detailed notes, a foreword from founding ELP drummer Carl Palmer, rare band photos plus 12 x 7 artcards, inspired from the original single sleeves.

This 1971-1992 career-spanning collection of 45’s have all been remastered by world-renowned ELP mastering engineer Andy Pearce and include amongst others, the majestic ‘From the Beginning’ alongside fan favorites ‘C’est La Vie’, ‘Lucky Man’, ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Stones of Years’, ‘Tiger In the Spotlight’, B-side curio ’Living Sin’ and the UK Chart Number 2 classic ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’.

This box set of singles is very important to the development of ELP,” says Carl Palmer. “The music that you will hear opened the door to radio around the world, and then the musical concept of ELP was born.”
