The real gems here though are the oldies; "Conquistador", "A Salty Dog", "Quite Rightly" and of course, the classic song mentioned in the first paragraph.
The setting for the concert was the Union Chapel in Islington, England, which is impressive and slightly foreboding with its intense gothic architecture, which adds to the look of the performance.Read more ›
If you like Madonna this is not for you but if the Last waltz is your thing get it.
The blu ray concert in a smaller location is like a trip back in time with Hammond organs etc.
The participants are likely originals and the concert is refreshingly real.
anything but geezer rock from hazbeens this is the best I hoped for.
The camera is right in with the musicians but not interfering.
Procol Harum is one band I've told them about.
Many people know Procol Harum from their two songs that get radio play: Conquistador and Whiter Shade of Pale.
Those are both good songs that have stood the test of time but this band actually had a lot more great material that never made it on to the radio.
For those unfamiliar with Procol Harum, this DVD is an excellent introduction to the band. It contains a lot of their best known material from the late 1960s and early 1970s along with some new songs. For those who do know Procol Harum's work from 40 years ago, this DVD is a worthwhile purchase.
The two main creative players in the original band, Gary Brooker and Matthew Fisher, are both still active in the band and both are featured in this performance. Gary Brooker's voice has held up very well and Matthew Fisher's organ playing is still a main component of the band's sound.
The band has gone through a number of guitar players over the years. Robin Trower is probably the best known of Procol Harum's former guitar players. The band's current guitarist, Geoff Whitehorn, is excellent. I wasn't familiar with Whitehorn before seeing this DVD but apparently he's been around the British music scene since the 1960s and has played with Roger Daltrey, The Who, Paul Rogers and many others. I was really impressed with his playing on this DVD.
The venue for this recording was the Union Chapel in London's Islington district.Read more ›

This is a really well-done blu-ray. Video & editing are nearly perfect to my taste(still looking for that"perfect" one), but the shining star here is the WONDERFUL audio. Read morePublished on Jan. 11 2014 by ClwydJ
