Christmas Conundrums 2002

Question of the Day : Twelfth Night


Happy Twelfth Night! Over these twelve days of Christmas we have set you quiz questions about the following Procolesque albums (only): Procol Harum 1967, Shine on Brightly, A Salty Dog, Home, Broken Barricades, Live at Edmonton, Grand Hotel, Exotic Birds and Fruit, Procol's Ninth, Something Magic, The Prodigal Stranger, The Long Goodbye (The Symphonic Music), and The Well's on Fire.

Carefully read and answer the questions below. The answer is always the name of a Procol album as listed above. If you have been getting them right you will have been finding that the answers are all different, except one. To put it another way, just two of the answers have been be the same, and that's been the Album of the Day. To win, just write down the Album of the Day from each instalment.

Preamble over: here are the final nine questions! (to find previous questions, look here). Follow the clues if you like, or use the BtP search-engine

1

A track from this 60s album was covered on Lost in the Looking-Glass, the excellent studio-recorded 40-track homage to Procol from the Palers' Project, by bass-guitar virtuoso Jack Vees, who used that instrument and nothing else to recreate all sounds heard on the original

2

This album contains the sung words, 'This world is rich, but it is not mine'. Clue ... the song hasn't yet been added to Peter Christian's excellent KR words database, which is complete up to The Prodigal Stranger

3

An anagram of the title of this album would be 'Darling grope-threats' To solve anagrams, take the letters of the proposed phrase and re-arrange them to form a more familiar sequence: eg. 'Hoisting long-lost lakes' = 'Lost in the Looking-Glass'.

4

One reissue of this album contained an ignoble fragment entitled 'Procol Have a Laugh'

5

Gary Brooker wrote the liner note to this album in a Holiday Inn

6

This album contains a Trower / Reid song with no piano on it, a Brooker / Reid song with no organ on it, and a Brooker / Fisher / Reid song with no lead guitar on it

7

This album contains the sung words, 'You were only joking'

8

A track from this album was majestically covered on Lost in the Looking-Glass, the excellent studio-recorded 40-track homage to Procol from the Palers' Project, by the US band, Northern Sky

9

You can win a very rare reference promo copy of this album, with un-finalised running order, if you are lucky in the 'Beyond the Pale' Christmas competition.

In order to win your own choice from the list of Fab Prizes, just figure out which album from the list above has never been our 'Album of the Day' during this run of puzzles, and send us using this special link the last word sung on that album (in its original UK pressing. Clue: the word we want has more than eight letters). Also send us the rank-order of prizes that you would like, if your entry is a winning one.
