Christmas Conundrums 2002

Question of the Day : 29 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
 
1
An inapposite anagram of the title of this album would be 'Long Hatred' To solve anagrams, take the letters of the proposed phrase and re-arrange them to form a more familiar sequence: eg. 'Skin-tight solo galleons'.= 'Lost in the Looking-Glass'.
2
Everyone who owns this album and the number of owners exceeds zero has a signed copy :-) 
3
The first vocal sound on this album comes from Mick Grabham, asking a question of the producer ...
4
This album was re-issued as REP 4666-WY
5
This album sleeve owes its graphic design to a tobacco advertisement. Here's a clue that could be very misleading unless you read the whole article.
6
This album uses dubbed-on audience applause, mid-track: clue here
7
This album was issued in the UK with a double fold-out insert portrait of Procol Harum by David Bailey. Gary Brooker claims not to have got one
