Procol Harum - Live: In Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra [LP + 7"] Import
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including bonus seven inch vinyl single. Digitally remastered edition of the classic album Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra by Procol Harum. Recorded on 18th November 1971 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Canada, the album captured a truly magical performance by Gary Brooker (vocals, piano), B. J. Wilson (drums), Chris Copping (organ and harpsichord), Alan Cartwright (bass) and Dave Ball (guitar), the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Da Camera Singers. Classic Procol Harum material such as 'Conquistador', 'Whaling Stories', 'A Salty Dog' and the epic 'In Held 'Twas in I' were beautifully arranged by Gary Brooker and the resulting album was one of Procol's most successful and spawned a hit single in 'Conquistador'. It remains one of the finest collaborations between a rock band, orchestra and choir. This pressing has been newly remastered and cut at Abbey Road Studios and includes a bonus single which is a facsimile of a rare 1972 French picture sleeve release with edits of 'Conquistador' and 'A Salty Dog'.
