Live In Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

LP (Item 615573) A&M, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+

Procol Harum always had a very heady sound in their music – a mode that was much more complex than their contemporaries, full of these richer currents of sound that matched the deeper ideas in their music! Yet here, they really take things even farther over the top – working with an orchestra in Canada, and turning out these fantastic live versions of some of their grooviest tunes – plus a few surprises as well! Unlike other "with orchestra" presentations, which can sometimes sound a bit schlocky – or have the orchestra carrying the weakening talents of aging musicians – this set captured the group in their prime, and has the amazing voice of Gary Brooker right out front – with rock solid backing from the core group, with Dave Ball on guitar and Chris Copping on plenty of organ – as the orchestrations just underscore their genius in a very effective way. Titles include "A Salty Dog", "Conquistador", "All This & More", "In Held Twas I", and 'Whaling Stories".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it!
