EXCEPTIONAL, EARLY LIVE US BROADCASTS FROM PROCOL HARUM Procol Harum s third album, A Salty Dog (1969), was popular among both fans and critics alike and was the group s first album to sell well in the UK. The title track gained major US FM radio airplay and saw the band s profile rise significantly. Between the recording of the record in January 69, and its release in June, the mighty Harum hit the road, performing shows in both Europe and in the US. On March 16th the group were on the East Coast of America and performed at Bill Graham s Fillmore East venue in New York, where they put on a quite majestic show which included cuts from all the group s releases to date. Tracks one thru nine on this CD now feature the full show Procul Harum played at this stunning show, which took place more than fifty years ago. A few weeks later the group were on the West Coast, and in early April they played a short set at LA s Troubadour, which featured quite possibly the best live version of Whiter Shade Of Pale ever committed to tape (both shows here were recorded for live FM radio broadcast). Tracks ten - fourteen herein feature this show in full.

A good representation of the group's three Chrysalis albums, this is all the casual fan needs from this period, while sparing them the overwrought, side-long "The Worm & The Tree" from Something Magic. Tracks like "Grand Hotel," "Toujours L'Amour," "Nothing But The Truth," and "Idol" belong on any Procol Harum "best of" package. Despite the absence of Matthew Fisher (organ) and Robin Trower (guitar) on this collection, it is a satisfying chronicle of the band's last work with the distinctive drummer B.J. Wilson, who died in 1989.

Procol Harum's first album for Chrysalis, Grand Hotel, found the band returning to the grandeur of earlier works such as Shine on Brightly and Salty Dog. Robin Trower's replacement Mick Grabham is capable, even powerful, but not nearly as distinctive as his predecessor; consequently, the material tends to rely more on ornate arrangements than guitar riffs, making this somewhat more dignified than either of their previous studio albums, Home and Broken Barricades. Brooker and lyricist Keith Reid step up with strong material, notably the title track, "Toujours L'Amour," and "Fires (Which Burnt Brightly)." While the keyboard and orchestra-based arrangements harken back to earlier triumphs, the lyrics deal less with whaling stories than with social commentary; "A Souvenir of London" is about social diseases, with "T.V. Caesar" about the pervasive influence of television.

Procol Harum's seventh studio album, Exotic Birds and Fruit, was released in April 1974. In its original LP incarnation, four songs made up side one "Nothing But the Truth," "Beyond the Pale," "As Strong as Samson," and "The Idol" all of which featured some of the band's best later work. They had retreated somewhat from the orchestral hybrid of their previous album, Grand Hotel, although "Nothing But the Truth" still boasted a string arrangement. They replaced the sweetening with extra muscle in the remaining instruments, making this one of the group's harder rocking sets.

It is a natural tendency to assume that a collection with a title like that surveys the group's entire career, but in fact, this one focuses on only the first four albums, Procol Harum, Shine On Brightly, A Salty Dog, and Home…

Procol Harum's debut album is amazingly engaging, considering that it was rushed out to capitalize on the hit title track. The material was all already written (before the hit, in fact), but the group recorded the LP in just two days, simply to get a long-player out, and came up with one of the more pleasingly straightforward releases in their history…

As an album, "Shine on Brightly" is somewhat of a concept piece. It seems to chronicle the fall and subsequent rise of an ordinary individual as he/she progresses through paranoia and insanity to self actualization and nirvanic bliss. This journey is summarized in the epic eighteen minute "In Held 'Twas In I." But, more on that masterpiece in a moment…
