A treat for the Ramblin Man' Fair was a rare UK performance from Procol Harum
who gave a stately performance worthy of Royal approval. The lyrics are dark and
doomy but the music lifts you to euphoric levels. Gary Brooker MBE has a rich
voice at 71-years-old and a gold ole fashioned dark sense of humour.
Salty Dog and Conquistador are simply magnificent and Josh Phillips' swirling organ work on Whiter Shade Of Pale was a glorious ending to proceedings on the Prog Stage. The only thing missing was a firework finale, but the impact that Procol Harum made was louder than any bang.
