Procol Harum Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland

Jim Corbett's pictures from 14 March 1973


Cables, grand piano, some drums; Mick Grabham and the exposed innards of the Hammond; and a sparse few monitors

On drums minimally miked by 21st century standards Barrie Wilson

An unusual arrangement, the lead guitar over by the organ, and drums at the back

Prof. Copping, Hammond organ (miked Leslie visible behind him). The organ pipes in the background are not related

Gary Brooker, grand piano, concentrates on an instrumental passage: the band played Repent Walpurgis penultimately.
Cables spaghettifying in front, organ pipes towering behind

'They were taken at the stage edge with a hand-held camera using flash (it was a long time ago)' writes Jim.
Front-row heads in those days had hair on them!

Mick Grabham, Les Paul guitar. The spare guitar is for Chris to play Power Failure on towards the end of the show
