The album was highly anticipated, as it had been four years since the release of ELP's most successful album, Brain Salad Surgery. However, it was extremely different from the synthesizer-driven music that most fans had expected. Side 1 of the first disc was the Keith Emerson Side, and was a classical music piece on the piano. Side 2 was the Greg Lake side, and consisted of acoustic ballads, most of which were written by Lake & Peter Sinfield. The Carl Palmer Side on the second disc was considered at that time to be the best of the three "solo" sides, as it was the closest to prior ELP compositions. Palmer's side include a remake of "Tank" which was on ELP's first album. Another track on Palmer's side which was the rocker "L.A. Nights" featured Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh on lead and slide guitar and scat vocal. Side 2 on the second disc featured the entire band together, and consisted of two long-form songs: "Pirates" and an updated version of Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man. Brain Salad Surgery is the fourth studio album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1973 and the first under their Manticore Records imprint. ...

Because the sound was so different from their past albums, reaction was mixed. Works Volume I attracted new fans to Emerson, Lake and Palmer, but turned off many others. ELP can also stand for Extra Long Play, a format for the VCR tape. ...
