I can understand Dearielover's disappointment with this compilation as the first CD at least is exclusively from the Chrysalis era. However it is extremely well put together. I have met Roland Clare on a few occasions and I can assure you a lot of thought has gone into this collection. The production and clarity on the CD is excellent.
Touching on a very sensitive subject this CD collection totally plays down any influence of Matthew Fisher, but Procol Harum is Gary Brooker and Keith Reid's band. The original and the best. I keep promising to design a t-shirt on those lines.
I got in to PH in 1971 so this is the golden age to me. A cracking good band that I saw regularly live in the 70s. I'm pleased the Broken Barricades album is well represented here. In 'Luskus Delph' only PH could make a song about having sex sound like an operatic love song. 'Grand Hotel' and 'Exotic Birds & Fruit' have always been the highlight albums for me and there are generous slabs of them both here as well as some tracks from 'Procol's 9th' and 'Something Magic'
The second CD is the live stuff. It's very difficult compiling live tracks as I always feel they are more personal. I didn't like the way they did that one..well I did...etc. It's a good mix of songs, with the haunting 'Sister Mary' hopefully a harbinger of a new album. The tree be not dead from the ashes a new life will spread.

There are so many sides to Procol Harum rock, blues ,classical anchored in by that great writing team Brooker/Reid. Yes this CD is predominately from the 70s but try it. A very good album from an excellent band. Shine On.

The studio tracks ("Inside") all come from the Chrysalis albums, presumably a result of contractual availability of Regal Zonophone stuff. Their choice, sequencing & sound quality are all excellent. But I do think Roland might have explained why this selction was limited to the post Broken Barricade era. The live "Outside" disc in large part draws songs from the first four albums. Cerdes is a standout which makes you think they should re-record the whole first album, as an interesting contrast to the classic but poorly recorded mono version we all have. Both Homburg & AWSOP are curious mirror images of themselves. Sister Mary still sounds unfinished to me - lyrically unclear (a bit like that Quite Rightly So lyric that got binned). But the whole disc is worth it for the orchestral Barnyard Story, which after funereal notes, explodes (with a throaty Hammond) into choral bliss and Whitehorn's wonderful piercing solo. IMHO This is a Procol Harum highlight right up there with anything over the past 40 years. Good liner note, but maybe advertising there was a poster is somewhat un-Procol!

One of the greatest bands of all time. Never fashionable after their first hits due to the fact their songs didn't follow the more than well-trodden path about love. Superb collection. Broker's voice is magnificent.

What were they thinking at Union Square, or rather what was the compiler, Roland Clare, thinking when he started on this collection of Procol Harum songs. The subtitle of this collection is "The very best of live & in the studio". This suggests that he used the best recordings of PH in the studio and of the live performances. This puzzles me. The studio recordings are all of the Chrysalis era. Starting with some of the last recordings Robin Trower made with PH. Followed by the larger part of Grand Hotel and ending with two tracks from Something Magic. The second cd starts with two tracks from Edmonton followed by two tracks from the Utrecht Live cd. Than it goes steeply downhill and we are confronted with some of the worst and IMHO tasteless live performances of songs from the era that made Procol Harum. There is not any track from the first four studio albums. There are not any live tracks recorderd in that same period on the second cd as well. There are two live tracks with Matthew Fisher on organ, these are from the Utrecht concert. But if I am not mistaken it was the way Matthew Fisher played the organ and devised the organ part of A Whiter Shade of Pale that made the name of Procol Harum. I know that Roland Clare is a great fan, that is why I cannot understand why he only took tracks from the Chrysalis era. But inserting Fool's Gold is very interesting because this song has been considered by Dutch fans being about A Whiter Shade of Pale and MF's disappointment with PH in answer to MF's observations on"Journey's End". This compilation does not do justice to what made PH great. And not all the songs from the Chrysalis era in this collection belong to the very best. Some of them do. But I am aware that a compilation is always a matter of the compiler's taste opposed to mine.Read more ›

I am a Procol fan, but I don't need yet ANOTHER compilation as I am only interested in Procol up to the "Prodigal Stranger" album in 1991. Anything recorded after that is, essentially, done by Gary Brooker and an ever changing tribute band.
Recently recorded live outings of the same old songs all over again don't do it for me. I might download "Sister Mary" if it's any good.
