Emerson Lake & Palmer / Brain Salad Surgery box pre-order

Emerson Lake and Palmer / "Brain Salad Surgery" super deluxe box coming

As we announced back in November Sony will be reissuing Emerson Lake And Palmer‘s 1973 album Brain Salad Surgery as a Super Deluxe Edition box set this spring.

It’s now available for pre-order and there are in fact two sets listed on Amazon: the top-of-the-range six-disc box (a reasonable £50 at the time of writing) and a cut-down three disc version.

The limited edition super deluxe edition box set comes with original release die-cut poster and digitally restored artwork; 20-page booklet with new liners; photos and memorabilia; hardcover 12″ slipcase with artwork and internal gatefold. Five discs in total plus a vinyl record.

Both sets feature brand new hi-res 5.1 mixes (on a DVD-A), previously unreleased material and original HR Giger artwork.

Brain Salad Surgery is reissued on 12 May 2014.

7 June Update: The DVD-A on the three disc set doesn’t include 5.1 just stereo hi-res.
