Procol Harum anagrams


Over Christmas we're publishing the track-listing of twelve hitherto-unknown Procol Harum albums ... no, sorry, that's not quite true ... we're publishing twelve sets of Procol anagrams taking the letters of existing song-titles and mixing them up to make new titles.

For instance, if we were to write Minoan Eardrums you'd decode it as Monsieur Armand; you'd recognise that Ideal Mutation was really Il Tuo Diamante; and you'd convert A Tart's Italian Organ back into Last Train to Niagara.

But to make it easier, and fairer, we've used only standard, official Procol releases (no Stoke Poges, not even The Long Goodbye), nothing that they didn't write (no Old Black Joe, no Eight Days a Week) ... and no Worm / Tree subtitles.

Solve the anagrams daily, starting on Christmas Day, and as well as hours of merry frustration you could end up owning one of our fab Procol Harum prizes. The links to the puzzles start here

How to win: the last instalment, on Twelfth Night (5th January) explains exactly how to enter the competition. A single e-mail sentence is all you'll need to send to 'Beyond the Pale', and the prizes will go to the senders of the first correct answers we receive.
