What is one of the most unnecessary albums ever released?

Emerson Lake and Palmer’s (ELP) Love Beach, released in 1978, is the album Keith Emerson said is “an embarrassment against everything I’ve worked for.” Yet, it exists.

During most of the 1970s, ELP was a paragon of daring, forward-leaning progressive rock. Conceptually and musically, the album was a high dive by the band into a two-inch deep pool of mediocrity. The band dissolved a year after Love Beach was released.

I had assumed for years the album’s cover photo of the band bearing their paunchy torsos through their vividly hued silk shirts on a beach at sunset was an unfortunate decision made by Atlantic Records executives who forced them to make the album due to contractual obligations. However, according to Palmer, the portrait on the beach was the band’s doing.

ELP dared to be dull on Love Beach, and it hastened their implosion.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
