put someone the hot seat

In the Hot Seat

In The Hot Seat is an album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1994 (see 1994 in music). Keith Emerson had nerve problems in his right hand, which made it almost impossible to play the keyboards. The tensions between him and Greg Lake surfaced again during this album (Emerson and Lake have always butted heads over the direction of ELP), and the disjointedness of this album is a result. It was the last studio album to date by the trio, and is considered by many to be their weakest, on par with 1978's Love Beach.

The album was recorded at: Goodnight LA Studios - Los Angeles, CA (engineers Brian Foraker & Keith Olson)
