Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Brain Salad Surgery


For the upcoming album, Peter Zumsteg, the manager of the record label, introduced Emerson to the artist HR Giger. In April 1973 the group played a two-day concert in Zurich as part of their European tour. After the concert, Emerson and Zumsteg visited the artist in his home. Coincidentally, under the influence of the music of Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, Giger had just created a triptych entitled Work 216: Landscape XIX. When he revealed the triptych to his guests, Emerson immediately decided to use it for the album cover. Giger painted two new pictures, Work 217: ELP I and Work 218: ELP II, roughly the size of the vinyl record cover. The group chose the first picture as the cover picture. It shows a human skull clamped in a machine in the monochrome biomechanical style typical of Giger over the new ELP logo, also designed by Giger, which Emerson, Lake and Palmer has carried since then.

After the end of an exhibition of Giger's works in Prague, both original paintings Work 217: ELP I and Work 218: ELP II were lost on August 31, 2005, where they were presumably stolen and have not reappeared since. (I do not have them :))
