- The Barbarian – 5:06
- Take A Pebble – 11:47
- Pictures at an Exhibition – 35:49

- Nutrocker – 4:45
There is also a six minute interview with the band.
Here is a video of ELP performing Take A Pebble live in concert at the Lyceum Theatre in London in 1970.
This recording is interesting from a historical perspective because it captures the band in their first week of live performances. Casual fans may be better with the opus Welcome Back My Friends or Pictures At An Exhibition.
