4.0 out of 5 stars Seen in a later time 3 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
When I first purchased this album upon its initial release I was not keen on it and eventually sold it. Many years have passed and when I first became aware of the 40th anniversary reissue series I obtained a copy of "Broken Barricades" to complement my original (and superb) LP. Then I became interested in the reissue of that absolute classic "A Salty Dog" which includes some excellent bonus tracks. Since then I have obtained, via Amazon, all the reissues.

As I said "Procol's Ninth" did not light me up in the past and neither did "Something Magic" so it was a bit of a revealation upon hearing them again as they are both excellent. What a brilliant collection! And don't forget "The Prodigal Stranger" and "The Wells on Fire". OK so 2 albums since 1991 isn't much but they are excellent as well. DVDs of them live are excellent as well. If you are a fan grab them all. If you don't know them start with, perhaps, "Broken Barricades". Ylu will never regret it! Procol Harum present a rather diverse and powerful range. Fascinating lyrically and musically "as tight as"! Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars The magic is starting to fade 17 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not Procol's finest hour by any means but there are a few gems to be discovered on this 1975 album. 'Pandora's Box' which kicks off things in magnificent style is the pick of the crop here; Tracks 2 and 3, 'Fool's Gold' and 'Taking the Time' are both solid Brooker/Reid compositions which demonstrate Brooker's supreme talents as pianist/vocalist whilst Mick Grabham is allowed to shine throughout with some searing guitar solos. The highlight, for me, on this collection is the classic 'Without A Doubt', which is a rare excursion into heavy/subtle territory - clever shifts of pace and lovely brass dominate here.
On the downside, 'The Final Thrust' is pretty lightweight stuff and the decision to end the album with the half-hearted Beatles cover 'Eight Days A Week' is criminal - Procol albums should always have fresh, dynamic material I feel. Still I think this CD is worth buying at a reasonable price, especially with the Salvo bonus tracks which are available in the 40th Anniversary series.

(This review pertains to the 2005 Friday Music edition)
While not among Procol's finest (I believe that distinction belongs to A SALTY DOG and GRAND HOTEL) this record wraps up their "classic" period nicely. It is certainly far superior than SOMETHING MAGIC or PRODIGAL STRANGER. 'Pandora's Box' and 'Fool's Gold' were the featured tracks on American FM radio and are typical Procol rockers. Other fine selections include 'The Final Thrust' and 'The Unquiet Zone' however, the two covers 'I Keep Forgetting' and 'Eight Days a Week' are soulless and completely disposable, perhaps signifying a lack of material - essentially nothing more than Holiday Inn cover band fare. What bumps this elusive edition (Friday Music) of PROCOL'S NINTH up to a 4-star level is the inclusion of the A and B side of a rare French 45rpm - 'Adagio de Albinoni'/'Blue Danube' - 12 additional minutes of "real" Procol magic. I realize this is a pricey CD but I was patient and got it for a song 6USD. Good luck finding this one!

Procol's Ninth could have been so much more. The words are broadly up to Keith Reid's usual standard, Gary Brooker has provided some excellent tunes, but unfortunately Leiber and Stoller have absolutely no idea what Procol Harum are about and most of the numbers sound like well-recorded run-throughs. I'd love to hear the current Procol Harum band make a live recording of these songs, as they deserve more than this.
