In all honesty, I cannot be anything but obsequious when discussing Procol Harum (and I can't even say that about the Rolling Stones, who I spent more than a quarter of my life trying to..."replicate.") And although this DVD displays Procol Harum with its weakest lineup (unfortunately, their most commercially successful lineup, though), that with David Ball pulling the most incredibly tortured faces while playing "wee-wee-diddly-SQUEECH" on his Gibson SG - still: Procol Harum merely breaking wind is better than 99&44/100th of anything else available. OK, that being said, when my wife bought me a DVD player for my birthday, this was also the first DVD she bought - but it IS kind of funny when she asks me, "hey, isn't that the group that did 'Whiter Shade Of Pale?'" And I also do not appreciate the truncated performance of "Simple Sister," played without either the dramatic "buildup" part that precedes the guitar solo, or the solo, itself. Thank Heaven, however, the final two segments showcase the group in its most prolific form, that with guitarist-extraordinare Mick Grabham. The song "Drunk Again" is kind of like, "UHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh," a la The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour" or the Stones' "Satanic Majesties," but the performance of "Grand Hotel" is nothing but SUBLIME: during that little "orchestral" part between the two Rachmaninoff-esque "rapidly accelerating tempo" parts, Procol's late, great drummer, BJ Wilson plays the part on a mandolin. I guess Gary Brooker WASN'T exaggerating when he credited BJ with performance of "22 Mandolins!" in the liner notes to "Grand Hotel" after all, huh?

First let me say I'm a dyed-in-the-wool 'Procol Harumian'. I saw them in person in 1970, close to the time this video was made. (Of course no Robin Trower on this Musicladen video :(
Still and all, despite the fact that this set of works was shot in a TV studio with no audience, it is one of the few extant examples of what Procol was like back then. For that alone 4 stars suffice.
There is something lost, of course, in playing in a quiet TV studio for a bunch of cameramen and soundmen! I would have rather seen them in front of a real audience in a large venue like San Antonio was in July 1970 when I saw the real Procol Harum that existed in toto. That was before the ineffable Robin Trower left.
This video has alot of 2nd album songs, interestingly enough. But also "Simple Sister" from the Broken Barricades album 5. And the inevitable "A Salty Dog". The band itself sounds a bit thin but Gary Brooker's vocals are amazingly truthful to the records. He sounds just like Gary Brooker! And it is neat to see the late Barrie Wilson.
So all told, while not the greatest video, it is better, much better than NO video. And it really does take me down Memory Lane.

That's what I would have done if I saw this concert in person. Sadly, I was never able to see PH in concert, but this DVD gives some solace, thanks to the folks who had the intelligence to release this show. Now I can show people why 'Power Failure' is awesome, not just have them listen to it. BJ's drumming is immaculate. All songs are amazing, thank you Gary Brooker! Thank you Procol Harum, all of you!
