Procol HarumGrand Hotel (with bonus tracks) (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Union Square/Salvo (UK), 1973. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
Procol Harum check into the Grand Hotel – and check out with one of their greatest albums ever! The set's got that majestic sound that was the group's strongest point – a strange mix of the very personal vocals of Gary Brooker and the expansive blend of piano, organ, and guitar that the group often sent soaring to the skies – augmented here with some perfect use of strings and chorus – never too heavy, but all fused perfectly with the core energy of the sextet! In fact, it's that sense of compression – of folding everything together so well – that really makes the group so great, and such an important precursor for so many acts that were beginning to blossom in the UK scene, using a similar approach in different ways. Yet it's that Gary Brooker/Keith Reid sense of songwriting that still sets these guys apart from anyone else – as you'll hear on titles that include "Grand Hotel", "Tojours L'Amour", "TV Caesar", "A Souvenir Of London", "Robert's Box", "Fires", "For Liquorice John", and "A Rum Tale".

Procol HarumLive In Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
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". Features bonus tracks – the b-side track "Luskus Delph" – and rehearsal tracks from the concert of "Salty Dog", "Shine On Brightly", "Simple Sister", and "Luskus Delph". CD

Procol HarumProcol Harum (2LP 50th Anniversary colored vinyl pressing) 2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Deram/Fly, 1967. New Copy 2LP ... On April 13, 2019
The amazing first album from Procol Harum – a group with a sound that's still unlike anyone else we can think of – even though they were a key part of the London scene of the 60s! The group are steeped in all of the blues, soul, and jazz elements that influenced so many other British acts of the period – but they have this way of presenting the music that brings a whole new sort of drama to the music – this flair that never overwhelms, and instead embellishes the music in this really special way – so that the tunes have this brilliance that's kept them fresh for many decades to follow! Lead singer Gary Brooker is a key part of the record's magic – a very distinctive singer – and a young Robin Trower contributes plenty on guitar, as does Matthew Fisher on Hammond. But there's also some arrangements that really set the whole thing in an unusual direction – and which make the record way more than just another bluesy rock set from the time. Hard to argue with the baroque brilliance of "She Wandered Through The Garden Fence", "A Christmas Camel", "Salad Days", "Repent Walpurgis", and "Conquistador" – not to mention the hit, "Whiter Shade Of Pale". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, April 14.

Procol HarumProcol's Ninth (3CD set) ... CD
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A hugely expanded version of this record – with two and a half CD's worth of unreleased material! The core record is quite an unusual moment for Procol Harum – still riding strong here onto their ninth album as a group – but also bringing in the legendary production team of Leiber & Stoller to help sharpen their sound! Yet apart from a few well-placed covers, all the genius of Gary Brooker and the group is firmly intact – organ work is maybe trimmed down a little, but his own vocals and piano are tremendous – as is the overall sense of song structure throughout! Titles include "Fool's Gold", "The Unquiet Zone", "Pandora's Box", "Eight Days A Week", "Without A Doubt", "The Piper's Tune", "I Keep Forgetting", and "Typewriter Torment". CD1 also features the original group recordings – pre-Lieber & Stoller – of most of the tracks. CD2 features Live In The USA – 12 tracks recorded in 1975, at the Capitol Theater in Passaic, New Jersey – and CD3 features Live In The UK – 13 more tracks recorded in 1975 at Leicester University. There's also a huge booklet of notes – and a small poster too. CD

Procol HarumSalty Dog (MFP) ... LP
A&M/MFP (UK), 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Maybe our favorite album from Procol Harum – a set that adds in some wonderful use of strings to the group's unique style – almost moving forward on the promise of the earlier single "Whiter Shade Of Pale", moving into much deeper territory overall! There's something about Procol Harum on their early album's that's really indescribable – certainly an influence from blues and roots, but this really striking step forward with their song ideas and overall construction – not into jamming or progressive modes, like some of their contemporaries – although they're certainly never afraid to rock – but almost this balance between personal poetry and brashness, with kind of a slightly creepy current at times – as illustrated beautifully by the image on the cover. Titles include the completely wonderful "A Salty Dog", p0lus "Wreck Of The Hesperus", "Boredom", "The Devil Came To Kansas", "Too Much Between Us", "All This & More", and "The Milk Of Human Kindness".

Procol HarumStill There'll Be More – An Anthology 1967 to 2017 (5CD & 3DVD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 5CD & 3DVD ... $64.99
A huge career-spanning retrospective of the work of Procol Harum – presented in a set that features material from every single album by the group, including a few of their more obscure later efforts! While most folks might know an early hit or two by Procol Harum, those who are truly in the know understand that these guys never made a bad step – that over the course of many records, they kept on sounding great – and continued to work in that unique melange of styles that can only be called Harum-like, or maybe Procol-ish! There's often an especially compelling sense of rhythm and flow that's balanced alongside Gary Brooker's unique vocals – every bit as powerful later as on "Whiter Shade Of Pale". This 5CD set is amazing – 69 tracks from every single album by the group, plus two live concert – Hollywood Bowl in 1973 and Bournemouth Winter Gardens in 1976 – plus 3DVDs that include 210 minutes of mostly unreleased footage of BBC and German TV appearances from 1967 to 1977. Also features the entire Musikladen recording from 1973 – plus a lavish 68 page illustrated book, a replica poster, and a great box to hold the whole thing. Titles include "Pandora's Box", "The Unquiet Zone", "As Strong As Samson", "For Liquorice John", "Fires Which Burnt Brightly", "Can't Say That", "Grand Hotel", "Conquistador (live)", "The Devil Came From Kansas", "A Salty Dog", "Something Magic", "Strangers In Space", "Homburg", "Cerdes", "Shine On Brightly", "Perpetual Motion", "This World Is Rich", and "Broken Barricades".

✨✧ Procol HarumExotic Birds & Fruit (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1974. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Procol Harum were one of those groups who continued to sound amazing, even way past their initial hits – as you'll discover here on this wonderful gem from 1974! The album's got everything we love in the group very firmly in place – that strange mix of blues roots and drama, fused with loads of great organ and piano lines, and topped with the always-unique vocals of Gary Brooker – a singer who can make even the simplest lyric sound wonderful, but always without ever overstating his case! The balance is hard to describe in words, but it's perfectly Procol-like throughout – on well-penned, well-produced tracks that include "Beyond The Pale", "Nothing But The Truth", "The Idol", "Thin End Of The Wedge", "New Lamps For Old", "Butterfly Boys", and "As Strong As Sampson". 3CD set features an insane amount of material – the bonus tracks "Drunk Again" and "As Strong As Sampson (alt mix)" – plus an 11 track BBC Radio One concert, recorded at the Hippodrome on March 22, 1974 – and a 13 track "live in studio" set recorded in Dallas on July 5, 1974.

VariousCome Join My Orchestra – The British Baroque Pop Sound 1967 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A very cool little genre – one that overlaps a bit with UK folk and some of its prettier pop of the period – and which often gets the same sort of top-shelf studio and production help as the best of the psychedelic generation! The music here is heavy on strings, woodwinds, and other larger instrumental elements – but all used in a way that's very hip, and quite different from the slicker pop modes of just a few years before! The cuts here are all made by longer-haired, open minded folks from the time – helping to reshape folk styles towards their acid generation to come, or introducing a more thoughtful mode of songwriting amidst the freakier period of the psych years – all with results that are completely sublime. You'll recognize a few names here, including a number you might not think of as "baroque pop" – but together, they work well with some of the lesser-knowns – to craft music that helped draw together generations of British musical expression, at a level that's still pretty darn fresh today. 3CD set features a great booklet of notes, and 80 tracks by artists who include The Factotums, The Move, Fickle Pickle, Donovan, Gilbert, Tony Hazzard, The Strawbs, Freedom, Clifford T Ward, The Money Jungle, Jonathan Gill, Bert Jansch, The Matchmakers, Picadilly Line, Briget St John, Bill Fay, Procol Harum, The Majority, Five Steps Beyond, Festival, Stackridge, Muffin, Agincourt, The Orange Bicycle, Mike Batt, Billy Nicholls, Wil Malone, Julian Brooks, Lean Nixon, Harmony Grass, and many more!

VariousTry A Little Sunshine – The British Psychedelic Sounds Of 1969 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1969. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The headiest sounds of the UK scene at the end of the 60s – a wealth of psychedelic tracks from the years when the new mode had really taken flight – and could no longer be confused or criss-crossed with other styles at all! Gone are the beat group tracks that have a bit of fuzz in the guitars, or the mod numbers that maybe use a bit of echo – and instead, just about all these numbers are fully-formed psych – from the instrumentation, to the lyrical conception, to the overall production – which usually really trips things out! As with the previous volumes in this series, the track selection is as superb as the presentation – which features 73 tracks in a 3CD box, along with a huge booklet of notes that really illuminate the many singers and groups in the package. A huge journey through space and sound – with work by The Factory, Shy Limbs, Bill Fay, The Freshmen, Tuesday's Children, Shere Khan, Trader Horne, Writing On The Wall, The Orange Machine, Pan Pipers, Grapefruit, Sam Gopal, Scrugg, Tapestry, Colin Giffin, Mar Brierly, Strawberry Jam, The Bliss, Wild Silk, Consortium, Paper Bubbl, Pussy, Fresh Air, The Sorrows, Jason Paul, Peter Howell & John Fernando, Procol Harum, 1984, The Deviants, The Orange Bicycle, Jason Crest, and many more.

✨✧ Plastic PennyEverything I Am – The Complete Plastic Penny (Two Sides Of A Penny mono & stereo/Currency/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Page One/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two full albums from this compelling late 60s British group – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Two Sides Of A Penny – a great little record from a British group who grew out of a single studio pop hit – then quickly emerged as something else entirely! Singer Brian Keith recorded the leadoff hit as a single, without the band – but man, once a group was put together, things really got interesting – as Keith's compelling, soulful vocals get sublime support from the organ of Paul Raymond, guitar of Mike Graham, bass of Tony Murray, and drums of a young Nigel Olsson – who'd later go on to great fame in the 70s! The territory has echoes of the soul and blues of the mod years – but the complexity of the organ lines, and some of the rhythms, make for a more baroque sound – maybe like Procol Harum at times, but with its very own vibe. Olsson and Raymond also sing a bit – and titles include "Everything I Am", "Genevieve", "Wake Me Up", "Mrs Grundy", "Take Me Back", "I Want You", "So Much Older Now", "No Pleasure Without Pain My Love", and a version of "Strawberry Fields Forever". Next up is Currency – the obscure second album from Plastic Penny – a group who hardly cracked the charts with their debut, and who maybe sound even more amazing this time around! The group have shed their previous vocalist, Brian Keith, and are working as a really tight quartet with fantastic guitar lines, drums, and organ – all wrapped up in a mode that's swirling and powerful, but neither entirely psych nor prog either – thanks in part to a tightness that still echoes modes of the mod years, but with wilder edges – and a newly-discovered energy that really has these guys letting loose in a totally great way. Titles include "Caledonian Mission", "Currency", "Sour Suite", "Give Me Money", "Turn To Me", and "Your Way To Tell Me To Go". 3CD box features an insane amount of bonus tracks – the full first album in mono, plus 14 more tracks from BBC sessions – and bonus singles that include "Nobody Knows It", "Guarda Nel Cielo", "Happy Just To Be With You", "Tutto Quel Che Ho", "Everything I Am (first version)", "Your Way To Tell Me To Go", "Baby You're Not To Blame (single)", "Hound Dog (single)", "Celebrity Ball", "Currency (single)", "She Does", and "Genevieve (single)".
