Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1974 at the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas.

ELP were at this time on their Brain Salad Surgery Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. This tour found the group at the height of their improvisational power. In areas like “Aquatarkus”, the band sometimes went on for ten minutes or more!

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
