Emerson, Lake & Palmer Sign With Razor & Tie For Catalog Releases

Emerson, Lake & Palmer have signed with Razor & Tie Records to administrate their extensive catalog. The company will re-issue the group's albums with the album The Best of Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Come & See the Show already available in both digital and physical formats.

A full catalogue re-issue campaign will kick off later this year with the release of newly expanded, re-mastered, editions of the band's first six albums: Emerson, Lake and Palmer (1970), Tarkus (1971), Pictures At An Art Exhibition (1971), Trilogy (1972), Brain Salad Surgery (1973), and Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends – Ladies & Gentlemen (1974).

Razor & Tie will actively seek licensing opportunities for the catalog and set up a new direct to consumer store which will feature an array of newly created limited-edition items.

"As Emerson, Lake & Palmer remain unique in their categories, it's only fitting that they are now with a record company with a unique name like 'Razor & Tie," explains Keith Emerson. He continues "Don't question anything as the music speaks for itself and 'Razor & Tie' yells volumes on ELP's behalf."

Carl Palmer offers, "The time was right to make this move. It's a great, enthusiastic music company."

Greg Lake also enthuses, "We are looking forward to a long and productive relationship together."

Razor & Tie co-owner Cliff Chenfeld adds, "We are very excited and honored to distribute and represent the Emerson Lake and Palmer catalog. ELP helped create prog rock and we will use this opportunity to bring ELP's amazing body of work to an even broader audience and to finally understand what the Tarkus album cover means."
