Procol Harum: Reissues
Southend salts’ third and fourth.
Somewhat unfairly, Procol Harum are as exclusively associated with a single hit as Lieutenant Pigeon are with Mouldy Old Dough. These reissues, both of which garnered a reasonable audience in their own day, tell the story of what happened in the wake of the massive-selling Whiter Shade Of Pale, which looms, melancholic and cathedral-like, over their career.
