Sounds brilliant apart from "hoedown" where there's suddenly loss of quality, the song is very quiet compared to the rest.

Anyone else experiencing this??

I have a copy of this record that varies very slightly. Specifically, the labels on my copy are identical in all ways except that my copy does not have "Made in England" printed at 6 o'clock. Also, my copy has "Sleeve printed and made in England by Gothic Print Finishers Ltd, London, SE9" printed the base of the credits box in the top left corner of the inner gatefold. I believe this differs to listing's images but I am not sure as the resolution of the photo is not clear enough to read the text. It also has a "Rock 4" Island promotional inner sleeve. Should I list mine as a separate release or as a variation to this listing?

[copied from Discogs Master Notes text - author unknown]

Trilogy is the third studio album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1972. The front cover depicts Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, while the interior of the original gatefold sleeve features a photo-montage showing multiple images of the band in Epping Forest carpeted with Autumn leaves.

The band had already released two very carefully performed studio albums, Emerson, Lake and Palmer (1970) and Tarkus (1972). Trilogy increased ELP's popularity worldwide, and included "Hoedown", an arrangement of the Aaron Copland composition, which was one of their most popular live songs.

The Endless Enigma consists of three parts: Endless Enigma Part One, Fugue and Endless Enigma Part Two. Endless Enigma Part One has a 1:36 intro that consists of the Moog, bass drum and Piano. It's very quiet. The song Endless Enigma Part One opens with the sound of a beating heart, an effect created by the bass drum pedal of Palmer's Ludwig Octoplus kit. Notably, this effect was used by Carl Palmer before it was used on Jethro Tull's 'A Passion Play,' Pink Floyd's 'The Dark Side of the Moon,' and Queen's 'Queen II.'

The opening drum solo on the track "The Sheriff" features a slight time-mistake, followed by drummer Carl Palmer responding with the word "shit" which can be heard when listening carefully. The Sheriff ends with a Honky Tonk type piano solo with Carl playing woodblocks.

"Abaddon's Bolero" sounds like a martialised Bolero (in 4/4 rhythm rather than the usual 3/4). A single melody containing multiple modulations within itself is repeated over and over in ever more thickly layered arrangements, starting from a quiet Hammond organ making a flute-like sound over a snare drum, and building up to an ear-shattering wall of sound. This aspect may well be a nod to the similar effect in Maurice Ravel's famous Bolero. Abaddon's Bolero is replete with overdubs. Almost every time an instrument comes in, another overdub follows.

The album reached #5 on the Billboard 200. "From the Beginning" reached #39 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was also covered by Czech folk rock band Marsyas, albeit under a different name (Studená koupel - Cold Bath) and with Czech lyrics. The album peaked at #2 on the UK album charts.

When I bought this album long ago (in 1991) when I was 18, I noticed Emerson was credited to Zoukra Moog IIIc synthesizer. I was wondering, what's the difference between a regular Moog IIIc and Zoukra Moog III. Turns out they forgot to put a comma between Zoukra and Moog IIIc. A Zoukra (or Zukra) is a bagpipe originating in Libya and is heard near the beginning of "The Endless Enigma Part 1". For many years I thought the Zoukra was the instrument used in India to charm snakes (because the Zoukra bagpipe sounded so similar on this album), but that instrument is actually a Pungi or Been, which isn't used on this album.
