Christmas Conundrums 2002

Question of the Day : 27 December

Over the twelve days of Christmas we are setting 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 get them right you will find that the answers are all different, except one. To put it another way, just two of the answers will be the same, and that's the Album of the Day. To win, just write down the Album of the Day from each instalment, and on the last day we shall tell you what to do with them, in order to win your choice from the list of Fab Prizes.

Preamble over: here are today's nine questions! Follow the clues if you like, or use the BtP search-engine


A track from this album was given a bluesy reworking (featuring Robert Johnson!) on Lost in the Looking-Glass, the excellent studio-recorded 40-track homage to Procol from the Palers' Project, by Dr Sam Cameron


An anagram of the title of this album would be 'Born in High Style' To solve anagrams, take the letters of the proposed phrase and re-arrange them to form a more familiar sequence: eg. 'Theologists sink gallon'.= 'Lost in the Looking-Glass'


Jerry Stevenson is credited with playing some mandolin on this Procol album


One re-issue of this album contained the Brooker / Reid rarity, McGreggor, subsequently covered by The Paler's Project
