Procol Harum ... plus!

Westside press-release, May 1998


To supplement and compliment [sic] our highly acclaimed 3CD 30th Anniversary Anthology featuring Procol Harum's first four albums together with a selection of rare and previously-unissued titles by the group, Westside is now embarking on a year-long programme that will see all four albums reissued individually, and each with a further selection of bonus tracks the majority of which have been discovered since the boxed set was released in September 1997, and many of which will be exclusive to each individual package.

Procol Harum...Plus! offers the first album plus 10 bonus tracks that weren't included on the original issue (including Whiter Shade Of Pale and Homburg, the group's first two hit singles). Since we issued the boxed set, we have been lucky enough to unearth the long-thought-lost original production tape that the 1968 [sic] vinyl album was mastered from our earlier issue was mastered from a 'safety copy' which, while technically excellent, was nevertheless a generation removed from the one which was used to master this CD. No previous reissue has sounded as good as this one does and with the bonus of some material that has never been heard before, even by the most ardent of Procol collectors, we feel confident that we have a release that's potentially as saleable as the 3CD set, which has now sold close on 13, 000 copies in itself a guarantee of a large fanbase of probable punters for this title.

Watch for three more Procol Plus! albums to follow in the next year!
