Procol Harum in Copenhagen, 15 December 2001

Video clips and screenshots


What an end to a fantastic Procol year! On 30 December 2001, Danish TV DK4 aired a 2 hour Procol Harum special, with interviews and almost the full length concert recorded in Greve, Copenhagen, fifteen days earlier.

And  here is BtP's souvenir from the concert: Memorial Drive, as recorded by Danish TV DK4. Files are mpg, and the full -length song is about 31 MB to download. Well worth it, but if your bandwidth is low, consider the 1 min 20 sec clip (which is 7 MB)

Memorial Drive full length (30 MB)

A handful of screenshots from this exceptional broadcast, which may tempt you to make the download

Refreshment for Geoff and an eye-test for those of us who try to decipher his guitar-strap

Fretmen at work 

There are some fine shots of Mark doing his thing

The fingers, five strings and floral shirt of Matt Pegg

There was some debate on the Procol list as to what piano Gary was playing. It looks like a Roland A90 : note the MIDI box perched on the far left

Matthew holds a long chord with long fingers, his attention focused on visual cues from his fellow-players

Gary in mid-holler. This video is exceptional in the intelligent way it focuses on each player in turn, not perpetually on the face of the singer as so many other concert recording do

Matthew reaches up for the Leslie controller, somewhat awkwardly sited on the top of the cut-down Hammond. 

Intriguing to see him filmed in a downstage direction: there are plenty of over-the-shoulder shots of both keyboardists.
