AllMusic Review by

Comprised of songs cut during the final 13 months of the Nice's existence, Elegy is a must-own title for fans of Keith Emerson, offering his best live performance on piano ("Hang On to a Dream") ever to get a legal release, showcasing his organ playing on unique and beguiling arrangements of Tchaikovsky and Dylan material, and ending with a live version of the Nice's showstopper, "America." CD buyers should be aware, however, that the British compact disc release from Virgin Records offers superior sound and a lot more music (albeit from their psychedelic era) by the band.
