Off The Shelf
is a compilation selected by Keith Emerson containing some of his favourite prog output. Tracks include covers from those who have inspired him over the years along with rare and previously unissued tracks.
"Some of the musical styles presented here contributed to my work with Emerson, Lake & Palmer and also The Nice. I feel very fortunate to have played certain pieces with musicians who are the best in their field. So abandon any expectation of continuity and expect the unexpected as I present 'Off the Shelf' - a veritable cornucopia of potpourri within an audio montage! This is all stuff I love and want to share with you now."
