Procol Harum in Oslo, Norway

2 November 2006 pictures from Kjell-Tore Sandersen (1)




Gary Brooker leads a cracklingly lively incarnation of the band

The stage-layout is unconventional: piano, organ and bass are not normally accommodated in the same shot



Geoff Dunn on drums sits far stage left, opposite the piano, for better eye-contact; this means the lucky audience gets to watch him side-on

Geoff Whitehorn, top form and high spirits



Josh Phillips in a quieter moment

 

Some backing vocal from Geoff: on Something Magic it is more a case of a twin lead voice

Again, the band's excitement may be read in their body-language

And Geoff D behind his kit. Gary told BtP ('phone call, 5 November 2006) that this was not strictly 'The BJ Position'
since other Procol drummers had also inhabited it. But it had been beneficial to move the kit to
this position because Geoff D had a big cymbal 'that meant he couldn't always see
my conducting head', as the Commander put it.
