Check out this signature tune from Emerson Lake and Palmer’s last performance with a 70-piece orchestra on their 1977 tour in support of Works. “Pictures at an Exhibition,” presented here as an exclusive advance stream, is part of a forthcoming 2-CD set Live in Montreal 1977 that’s due November 23, 2013 from Shout! Factory.

Set, it’s said, in the largest stadium ELP ever appeared in, Live in Montreal 1977 is dotted with a number of tracks from the then-new Works album — including the third movement from Keith Emerson’s “Piano Concerto No. 1,” Greg Lake’s “C’est la Vie” and Carl Palmer’s “The Enemy God Dances with the Black Spirits” — as well as key cuts from their career to that point.

“Pictures at an Exhibition,” the title track from a 1971 ELP effort, is featured along with “Lucky Man” and “Tank” from the band’s eponymous 1970 debut, “Abaddon’s Bolero” from 1972’s Trilogy and “Karn Evil” from 1973’s Brain Salad Surgery, among others.

Live in Montreal 1977 is being called the most complete look into this show to date. Also included on this special release are personal anecdotes from both Palmer and Emerson. This tour was previously the subject of 1979’s Emerson, Lake and Palmer in Concert, and then 1993’s Works Live — but both have become increasingly difficult to find.
