Pictures at an Exhibition remains the only complete classical suite that has hit the top 10 in either the US or the UK.

Hell yes, totally right. Of his endless discog, he already produced 3 or 4 exclusive classical influenced albums.

Procol Harum flirted with classical music quite a bit but not to this extent.

Just looked it up and that was recorded a few months after this so that doesn't count after all.

Yes totally, and like I said to the previous page here, ELP screams classical.
More than that, they are the pioneer of the symphonic prog rock genre.

Yes were inspired by classical. ELP were more like a tribute to classical, so to speak.
