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 A Whiter Shade of Hair Oct. 16 2002
By ADK

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars ..very much alive and well Sept. 18 2002

I would like to share a few comments on Procol's new live DVD. I think the band has presented themselves the best possible way
with plenty of good songs, excellent Dolby 5.1 sound, a beautiful stage without any excess or gimmick. Since I'll probably never be able to attend a Procol Harum concert, this is really for me the next best thing.
I was particularly delighted by Gary's mention of my country, Venezuela, during one of the interview segments, talking about the success of a AWSOP.
The concert segment show the band in top form, playing with confidence and style, and Gary's voice is stunning like always. It is really a delight to hear the live renditions of A Wither shade of Pale, A Salty Dog, Homburg, Holding On, and so many very old and not-so-old songs . The concert transmitted a sensation of magic and peace of mind, and they let the music speak for itself, so I would suggest every Procol fan to buy the DVD, dim the lights, get a good bottle of wine, have your wife or husband join you, watch together the concert and let the world spin without you for a while. I would like also to recommend ... an excellent website run by fans of the band

5.0 out of 5 stars A REGAL ZONOPHONE INDEED!! Aug. 15 2002
Format:DVD
This is just a great DVD! Just the opportunity to see Matthew Fisher and Gary Brooker at work is a real treat in itself. Their current lineup is very good, with a percussionist formerly from Big Country and Dave Pegg's son on bass. The new guitar player is quite tasteful, sticking closely to the classic style of the early band (think Robin Trower ala Gibson, minus the Wah Wah). The performance in Copenhagen includes good performances of 20 odd pieces spanning their career. I would have liked more from the second album...NO LIFE IS LIKE A BEANSTOCK?...SHAME! Also, I wonder if they still perform "Cerdes, outside the gates of"?
The real treat, however, is a surprise extra performance of 6 or 7 songs in rehearsal for the tour. In a relaxed atmosphere, they run through great versions of "Morning Dew", "Hey Joe", and a wonderful rendition of "She waundered through the garden fence", among others. Watching Matthew Fisher play those beautiful lines from that song on his Hammond/Leslie combo was worth the purchase of the DVD itself. A cap to the set was an inspired version of "Let's go get stoned", a song where you can clearly see Gary Brooker's dept to Ray Charles.
If you have been a long standing fan, or...wonder what all the hoopla was about "skipping the light fantastic", check out this DVD. You can't go wrong. Hey, the price is right too. Now, how about Robin Trower on DVD!!
