Christmas Conundrums 2003

Question of the Day : 27 December


Over the twelve days of Christmas 2003, our guest-quiz questions are set by Hans Teutiger from Stuttgart, an autograph-hunter with an unrivaled knowledge of Procol gigs down the years. Please read his account below, from which you will be easily able to work where and when he got the autograph he describes.

When, and where, did I receive my third Procol autograph?

3) My first concert of the new decade in the home town port of my Scottish friend Gareth, also a seaman, who looks like the picture on front of the album I am carrying at that time. Only a few songs from that record are played, because the composition of the band has recently changed and they have not a full-time organ-player now. Only eleven songs in the set, not one song from the first album too, but Procol include a great rock medley and I decide to get their magnificent Singer to endorse the cover on my album. Then, disaster! I drop the album in great press of the Playhouse. Despair, utterly. Gareth unites me with the album when he prevents the crowd from trammping it into the Autumn leaves outside dressing-room doorway, and I am a happy salt myself.

--Hans
