Works Volume 2 is ELP's sixth studio album, released in 1977, and now expertly remastered for the first time.
The album's brief, eclectic compositions cover an array of musical styles, combining stimulating originals and handsomely orchestrated renditions of ‘Maple Leaf Rag’, ‘Honky Tonk Train Blues’, and ‘Show Me The Way to Go Home’. Works 2 showcases incredibly strong performances from all 3 band members – Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer. Includes the massive, perennial, global hit single ‘I Believe in Father Christmas’, Greg Lake's beautiful composition, highlighting his strong voice and vibrant acoustic guitar.
CD1 features the remastered original album. Some of CD 1 and all of CD 2 feature tracks from the ‘In Concert’ (1979) album (later reissued as ‘Works Live’, 1993). These were recorded at an outstanding August 1977 show at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, plus other shows on the 1977 world tour, and capture ELP performing at the pinnacle of their career.
