Product Description

Amazon.ca

Procol Harum could be credited (if not blamed) for popularizing classical rock with its J.S. Bach-inspired hit, 1967's "A White Shade of Pale," but the band only rarely drifted into the precious territory explored by groups like the Moody Blues and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. A Salty Dog, Procol Harum's third and best album, was built around the twin keyboards of Gary Brooker and Matthew Fisher (who also produced this album), but also showcased the bluesy, fuzz-toned guitar of Robin Trower. The title tune is a fully orchestrated sea ballad memorable for Brooker's soulfully majestic vocal. Folk-rock tunes like "The Milk of Human Kindness" and "Too Much Between Us" were more stripped-down but no less effective. And on "The Devil Came from Kansas," Trower uncorked a burly guitar solo that was downright heavenly. --John Milward

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ancient Mariner Goes Electric Feb. 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply the most fully realized themeatic work by any pop artist. Salty Dog will take you on a journey not unlike the ancient mariner, complete with images of old crusts, seaman's logs, bowsen's whistles and the like. From the opening cry of sea gulls to the finale of Pilgrams Progress, Procol Harum demonstrate their ability to hold together the concept, never overstating, never mellow dramatic.
I saw the orginal lineup perform most of the material from this magnificant album, long ago at New York's famed Filmore East. It's difficult to describe the intensity of their performance after more than thirty years. Suffice to say that Gary Brooker and company left the audience fullfilled. It was a magical evening indeed and Salty Dog is one absolutely great record.

Format:Audio CD
Most people I know either love prog-rock or hate it - except for "A Salty Dog." One of the pioneers of their much maligned genre, Procol Harum proved early on that it was possible to bring classical stylings and elaborate arrangements into rock without sounding bombastic or pretentious. Few other bands have managed to do so, and even Procol themselves didn't always live up to their own standards after their third album. But however briefly, they proved it could be done.
The title track is still the show-stopper, with its gorgeous orchestration and haunting lyrics, but it's only the tip of the iceberg. The nautical theme recurs throughout the album, most prominently on "The Wreck of the Hesperus," which features the album's most frantic musical arrangement. Cleverly tucked about halfway into the original album's progression, it serves as an unexpected climax if you listen to the songs in order. Elsewhere, "Juicy John Pink" and "The Devil Came From Kansas" serve as reminders that progressive rock is still rock and are a lasting testament to Robin Trower's influence during his too-brief sojourn with the band. Toward the end, the minor-key "All This and More" and "Pilgrim's Progress" bring things full circle with their more characteristic keyboard-driven melodies and dark lyrics.
As usual, the "new" bonus tracks clutter the setting a bit, but on balance they're a nice addition. "Long Gone Geek," a long-lost B-side, is one of the hardest rockers they've ever recorded. "Still There'll Be More" is apparently the same take found on the "Home" album, but as one of the best songs on one of their lesser efforts, it's welcome on this CD as far as I'm concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agreed: One of the Greatest Albums of All Time! March 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I want to agree with the previous review. This is simply stated one of the finest "rock" albums of music ever recorded. Every song is a gem. The songs on this album are beautifully composed and performed in a way that transports the listener. I've had this album for more than 20 years and I've never gotten tired of it. The album flows and enchants. There's a lot of emotion here, the kind of emotion that reaches deep into the heart of the listener. Its hard to describe music with words. Especially this album which transcends most categories and superlatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Sea Album Jan. 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Moby Dick", "Muntiny on the Bounty", "Treasure Island", et al.? This is for you. Beautiful opus combining rock and the seven seas. Seamless and thematic. Moreover, one of the richest albums ever produced. Were I shipwrecked, I'd have hoped that this one was aboard. A "Desert Island" selection indeed! Woulda even kept Ben Gunn sane!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Albums of All Time July 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
I can't say enough about "A Salty Dog." It has everything, from the haunting beauty of the title track, to the joyous whimsy of "Boredom," to the Mississippi blues of "Juicy John Pink," to the intelligent progressive-blues-rock of "Devil Came from Kansas," to the epic sweep of "Pilgrim's Progress." There is simply not a bad track on the album, and each one is a delightful surprise. Only the Beatles are in the same league.
"Salty Dog" is, quite simply, one of the finest rock albums ever recorded. If you like psychedelia, British rock, '60s rock, blues-rock, progressive/art-rock, etc., please - PLEASE - buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Desert Island" disc for sure Feb. 17 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'me sure we've all played the "choosing recordings to be trapped on an island with" game at one time. For Woodstock gen'ers, SALTY DOG is probably on most of our lists. The songwriting, performances, and production of the original tracks made the album an enduring rock classic. I've been listening to my Salty Dog LP for 30 years and will never tire of it (tho' I'm glad to be rid of the clicks and pops). While pianist and lead singer Gary Brooker was the usual frontman for Procol Harum, I always felt that this album was held together by organist (multi-instrumentalist, actually) Matthew Fisher's wonderful contributions contributions, Wreck..., Boredom, and Pilgram's Progress. There's not a bad track on this disk.
