Product Description

Product Description

Out of the swirling ocean of psychedelia in July 1967, 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' hit the No.1 spot in many countries throughout the world. At the time it was a song that instantly defined something new: 'classical rock.' It's the melding of rock's electric guitar, powerful vocals and bombastic drums with thoughtful lyrics and the artful complexities of classical melody and arrangement. The very name of the group suggested something far deeper than ordinary pop music ... PROCOL HARUM. They were one of the most popular of progressive rock bands. Many of their singles outsold all rivals, and their most ambitious album tracks still have a strong foll owing. This DVD captures the band performing many of their most popular tracks in Copenhagen, Denmark on 15th December 2001.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfection June 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The "almost" I am speaking of is the lack of enthusiasm in general. (The audience and the band). It's not really that noticable and might just be the way it was recorded... almost "through the board" type of recording. I don't think Procol Harum has to jump around like Mick Jagger... but there is a slight lack of movemnet in the DVD. Just a little stiff. I also agree that with another reviewer that I wish Gary Brooker would play a real piano. And of course B.J. Wilson's drumming is always missed but Mark B. does a great job. That aside...great choices of songs great performances and a very clear recording. This DVD makes me want all the Procol Harum remastered CD's and reminds me how GREAT this band is. Also...Just to get a glimpse of Keith Reid at the end is almost worth the price. Highly recommended DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Rightly , Very Exciting!!! Jan. 27 2003
Format:DVD
I have seen Procol many times over the years. From their early Filmore east concerts to their most recent shows in NYC. I must say , This is the best I have heard them on a "Live" recording since Robin Trower left the band in 1971.The band is tight and the dynamics are like that of vintage Procol Harum . Geoff Whitehorn plays with the emotion and feel remenisent of Robin Trower(who is 10's in my book) ,while still using his own style and technics. BJ.is a hard act to follow and I miss his playing very much . I give Mark Brezicki alot of credit for keeping in BJ's style but also using his own orginality . Matt Pegg does some very nice licks and blends in well also . As for Mr. Brooker and Mr. Fisher ,It's always great to see these to Pros working together! Procol Harum is truly a great band ,and with out a doubt an "orginal" band . Most of all if you are a real Procol fan this DVD is a MUST HAVE! THX.GC.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Whiter Shade of Hair Oct. 16 2002

I love the classic Procol Harum band and their recordings upto about mid-seventies. With this video and it's performances I do have a few dissasatisfactions that keep it from getting my full five-star blessing...
1) I don't care what the common practices are, there is no excuse for not using a REAL PIANO for a concert. Lets see...real piano strings or a digitally sampled piano sound. I'll take a real piano (in tune or not) anyday.
At least Matthew make no compromise and uses a real Hammond organ, but c'mon Gary lets hear Grand Hotel on a real piano. Maybe slightly inconvenient but it won't break the bank.
2) The band is together (altough perhaps a tad too loose, but please, please put some energy into it. Getting a little older is no excuse for not turning up the volume and getting wild.
The drummer has great style but will only hit his kit so hard and overall the band just seems to be holding back.
Take off the slippers boys and put yer Rock n' Roll boots back on and don't be afraid to break a sweat.
All that aside, the visual and audio production on this disc is excellent, very good indeed. None of that disturbing modern flash editing that makes us music lovers cringe.
The song list is great, lots of old favorites...
Christmas Camel, Memorial Drive, She Wandered Through, Repent Walpurgis, New Lamps and much more).
I actually enjoy the rehearsal performance more than the concert itself.
Overall this is a great disc and well worth the price of admission.
