EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER -- Brain Salad Surgery (Rhino)

Rhino recently reissued a new version of ELP's 1973 masterpiece, Brain Salad Surgery. The reissue includes a new 3-D cover, a 25-minute interview on the making of the album and new liner notes. As far as sound quality on the new disc, it's perfect. They used the same tapes that were used on the reissue from three years ago on the Victory label. The main difference here is that the Victory disc had better packaging. Unless you're a completist, look for the Victory reissue instead.
