howdy. how was procol?

i've never heard the album all the way through, but it sounds so much what i loved about the first.

Procol were excellent especially the second half when they got into the great old stuff. Paul Winter showed up and played two songs with them.


yes!

i really am so jealous. i've been a procol freak since i was a brat. never got to see em

wonderful section here, again FLUTE... then the wind-up... then the bluesy jam.

I'm hearing a similarity in vocal phrasing to how Pete Townshend sang on some of his solo albums. But then it's been a long week and I am very old.

Nice one.

I only saw Procol Harum once and that was in 1971 supporting Jethro Tull (at The Royal Albert Hall)







A lovely guitar solo here

This track was co-written by Margaret Busby a Ghanaian-born publisher, editor, writer and broadcaster, resident in the UK. She was Britain’s youngest and first black woman book publisher

The bass guitar is very tidy throughout - no heroics but very tight

Yeah C never saw them and was glad to finally see them and Gary's voice was still quite good. He is a funny chap too told a few stories and kept telling us that whisky was good for his vocals as he took another sip.

Kath me too when they ended with Conquistador then into A Whiter Shade it was a dream.
