Procol Harum at The Bottom Line, NYC

Bert Saraco at the first show on 9 May 2003


Bert Saraco (of Bert and Carina) drops this brief overnight note to BtP (9 May 2003); the pictures are Express Images Photography

Impressions: the band was tight and energetic. Everybody's looking fit and healthy. Keith was in attendance, and made himself available to fans after the show. He was smiling. At least two Procol wives were also in attendance - Franky (Brooker) and Carol (Fisher). The crowd was very enthusiastic. Spontaneous standing ovation for A Salty Dog and several other songs. More to follow. Tired. Will sleep well. Saw Procol again for the first time in 8 years!

Keith Reid ... not often seen at a Procol gig ... spent most of the set by the soundboard ... here he is pictured with Paler Tony Sadowski in the background ... as flash photography is not permitted at the Bottom Line, some massaging of this image has been required
