Procol HarumProcol Harum ... LP
Deram, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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".

Procol HarumProcol's Ninth ... LP
Chrysalis, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Procol HarumShine On Brightly ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
The stunning second album from Procol Harum – a record that takes everything that's wonderful about their debut, and pushes it even farther – to a very unique space that's completely the group's own! The songcraft here is magical – with great work from the team of vocalist Gary Brooker and Keith Reid – and the production continues the group's unusual blend of bluesy elements with these dramatic, ambitious arrangements – never pop orchestrations, but just these ways of putting together a tune that make familiar fuzz guitar, piano, and organ explode in really new sort of ways. The whole thing's wonderful – hardly any hits, but all wonderful songs throughout – and titles include "Quite Rightly So", "Shine On Brightly", "Skip Softly", "Magdalene", "Glimpses Of Nirvana", "Grand Finale", and "In The Autumn Of My Madness".

✨✧ Procol HarumExotic Birds & Fruit ... LP
Chrysalis, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Procol HarumLive In Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 HarumBroken Barricades (with bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic fifth album from Procol Harum – one that really demonstrates the ever-changing energy of the group, and the way they seemed to find a fresh new focus with each of their early albums! The vocals of Gary Brooker are even more wonderful than ever – rejoined here with the talents of organist Keith Reid, who is back in the group – cementing a musical partnership that pushes forward with stronger, more rockish modes throughout – a lean quality that really seems to bring out the best in everyone! The set begins with the fantastic "Simple Sister" – the moves on through other great numbers that include "Luskus Delph", "Power Failure", "Memorial Drive", "Song For A Dreamer", "Broken Barricades", and "Playmate Of The Mouth". This huge 3CD edition features early/alternate mixes of the full album on CD1 – and CD2 features a 12 track live set recorded in New York for WPLJ radio in 1971, plus four more BBC tracks from the same year. CD3 features 11 tracks recorded for Sveriges Radio in Stockholm in 1971 – including two that were not broadcast at the time! CD

Plastic PennyTwo Sides Of A Penny ... LP
Page One, 1968. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ VariousJon Savage's 1969 to 1971 – Rock Dreams on 45 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Writer Jon Savage has given us some great dips into key years of the 60s – thanks to a wonderful series on Ace Records, which offered up a special mix of styles on every disc – but this time around, he focuses on a few years at the start of the 70s – and serves up an all-rock collection with a really heavy sound! Savage is never one to point out the ordinary – and the set does a really great job of exposing all these special shifts in the music at the time – sounds that never would have emerged just a few years before, and which have gone from having more open ties to their influences, to special territory that really shows both UK and American scenes making some great inventions of their own. As before, the notes are superb – and titles include "Broad Daylight" by Free, "Peace Loving Man" by Blossom Toes, "The War Machine" by Leviathan, "Magic Potion" by The Open Mind, "Rock & Roll Queen" by Mott The Hoople, "Devil Came From Kansas" by Procol Harum, "King Kong" by The Kinks, "Bad Night At The Whiskey" by The Byrds, "Comin Home" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Flying" by Faces, "Funk #48" by James Gang, "1969" by The Stooges, "Lie To Me" by Kaleidoscope, "Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Marsha Hunt, "Plynth" by Jeff Beck Group, "American Ruse" by MC5, "Sweet Jane" by Velvet Underground, "Rock & Roll" by Detroit, "Travelin In The Dark" by Mountain, "Yesterday's Numbers" by Flamin Groovies, and "Natural Magic" by Jack Nitzsche.

✨✧ Mike HarrisonMike Harrison/Smokestack Lightning/Rainbow Rider ... CD
Island/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Three overlooked albums by British singer Mike Harrison – all brought together in a single set! First up is the self-titled Mike Harrison – a wonderful solo debut from the singer who made Spooky Tooth sound so great on their albums, maybe even sounding better here on his own! The album is clearly conceived and put together by Mike – with backup help from The Junkyard Band, who underscore the yearning, earnest qualities in his vocals – spun out with a snakey, raspy charm, with a sound that's maybe a more intimate take on territory explored by Procol Harum. The songs are great, and the whole record has a quality level that really attests to the all-great quality of Island Records at this point – with tracks that include "Pain", "Lonely People", "Mother Nature", "Call It A Day", "Damian", and "Wait Until The Morning". Smokestack Lightning is great solo work from Mike Harrison, ex-Spooky Tooth – a fantastic singer who should have been huge as a solo act – maybe a bit like Colin Blunstone, whose sound with The Zombies was so important, but could never have a huge career on his own – even while he created some wonderful albums in the process! This set's a well-crafted gem through and through – recorded at Muscle Shoals, but with a sound that's free of any of the hoke of those oft-used studios – as instead of bending to southern modes, Harrison uses the ace musicians to underscore some of the depth of his own approach in a really great way. Titles include "Turning Over", "Wanna Be Free", "Tears", "What A Price", and "Paid My Dues". Rainbow Rider has Mike Harrison maybe hitting some harder rock territory than before, with some roots rock moments – more a part of the overall sound of the group, and with some pretty heavy guitars up there in the lead – which seems to bring out a very different quality in Mike's vocals. Titles include "Okay Lay Lady Lay", "Like A Road Leading Home", "Maverick Woman Blues", "You & Me", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and "Friend". CD
