Brain Salad Surgery

Brain Salad Surgery is an album released in 1973 by Emerson, Lake & Palmer;. It features cover art by famous artist H. R. Giger. The most well known track is "Karn Evil 9 - 1st Impression Part 2" ("Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends..."). "Karn Evil 9" was so long it originally had to be split between sides 1 and 2 of the album. The original US CD release also divided the piece, but subsequent releases have presented it in an uninterrupted version.

The album has also been released on DVD-Audio, remixed into Dolby 5.1 and in many cases using alternative vocal tracks.
