Procol Harum - Self Titled -1967


Yes, A Whiter Shade Of Pale might be the only song
people really know by Procol Harum, but nonetheless,
this is still a great band and a great album!
This came out in the late 60s, but it sounds almost
like either early 60s or late 50s influenced
by the later years of The Beatles. I know that's
chronologically impossible, but if it did some how
happen, then this is exactly what the end result
would have been. They album is very mellow dramatic
and has a very odd vibe about it that really doesn't
get the credit it deserves. Also, I really love the
uses of organ and piano! Maybe not everyone
will love this album as much as I do, but one thing
I am sure of is that anyone, no matter what they listen to,
will be able to stand it, so you can use it as an introduction
into old school music for all your friends who only listen
to the radio, heh. All in all, it's a great album
and anyone who likes it's first track, A Whiter Shade Of Pale,
will like the rest of the album too.

I love the drummer sound, i feel energizer every time that i listen music where the drummer is notable. i think any band could be sustainable itself without a drummer.
