Editor's Note:

Well.... it hasn't really been "two long years of bones and beaches" since the last Digest but it's too close for comfort. WHen last I emailed, I was trying the "new" ELP Channel on Facebook to see how that works. Well, it's worked ok but not great. Mostly, I think because there are so many ways to get ELP news on Facebook, the web, etc. Still... I know that some people don't see all the news and don't seem to mind the occasional Digest.

So, at least occasioanlly, we're back.

I've still got my overly busy life and still get to as many ELP-related shows as I can. In fact, just last Friday, I saw a few ELP Digest friends in Shirley, MA at the 2nd show of the current ASIA tour where Carl Palmer is still getting some of the biggest applause of the night!

This reminded me of the Digest and in a stroke of serendiptity, I got contacted by the folks at emersonlakepalmer.com (the band's official web site) asking if I'd help spread the word about some new releases and re-releases from Keith and Greg.

So, here we are. Some info that may be "news" to some and a reminder to those of us who also find our ELP news through other channels.

Read on, McDuff! (pardon the Shakespeare misquote!)
