In The Hot Seat is the ninth and final studio album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1994. During the album's recording, Keith Emerson suffered medical problems with the nerves in his right hand, which made it difficult for him to play the keyboards. The tensions between him and Greg Lake surfaced again during this album. Daddy" was written in memory of missing child Sara Anne Wood and used to raise awareness of missing children.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer's In the Hot Seat is an album, not unlike their 1978 album Love Beach, which was made for the wrong reasons, at a bad time, and probably shouldn't have been made at all. Speculation is that ELP was contractually obligated to record the third of a three-album deal at a time when Carl Palmer had required minor surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome and Keith Emerson had required major surgery for performance-induced damage to his right arm. Clearly, the band's head was not in the game and it shows

The final studio work by ELP was more a case of one step forward two steps back. On the back of Black Moon and a successful 92/93 album/touring period, the return to the studio seemed doomed from the start. Long forgotten tensions re-emerged and the start of long term medical difficulties for Emerson made for a difficult period. The reliance on bringing in outside writers to contribute plus a puzzling inclusion of a cover of Dylan’s Man In The Long Black Coat given an eighties electronic treatment was a sign of lack of inspiration and how bare the cupboard must have been.

In The Hot Seat is a music studio album recording by EMERSON LAKE & PALMER (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1994 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. The album starts with 'Hand of Truth' which is easily the best song in the album, but it is nothing more than an average ELP track. Daddy follows as the second best from the album which is mellow and tragic. the rest is unmemorable garbage of poor songwriting, and terrible synth usage of Keith. the only good thing about this album is the modern 'picture of exhibition' version.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer Format: Audio Cassette. There are a few good songs on "In the Hot Seat". The best one is Lake's song "Daddy". However, I'd only recommend this album for ELP completists. This album was recorded when both Emerson and Palmer were recovering from surgery, and the lack of quality in their playing is evident here. There was a reason why ELP never played any of these songs live once Emerson and Palmer recovered, and the band resumed touring.
