Friday Records in the USA are re-issuing remasters of Procol's Grand Hotel and Exotic Birds and Fruit, and the Brooker Ensemble's Within Our House, the former two with excellent bonus tracks. 'Beyond the Pale' has a number of each CD title to give away as competition prizes (thanks, Joe!) in our nice, easy Autumn Competition. You therefore have a pretty good chance of winning something pretty good!
On the puzzle page you will see a list of the Procol Harum tunes that feature on these three highly-desirable CD remastered re-issues. Carefully read the statement associated with each title ... and check out the hyperlink in each case for interest and information ... then consider whether the statement is true or false. All you need to do, in order to win a CD prize, is to collect the alphabetical letters corresponding to the six FALSE statements, and rearrange them to form a single, well-known English word. Send that word to 'Beyond the Pale' alongside a note specifying your rank-order of the CD prizes (eg: I'd like EBaF if I win: failing that, I'd like WoH and then Grand Hotel).
This competition is not a race against the clock. Take your time with the answers, and send us your considered verdict on or before Friday 8 October (birthday of 'Beyond the Pale'). To answer the questions you hardly need any Procol knowledge at all, since the answers are (largely) available by clicking on the song titles, or by consulting common-sense! All correct entries will go into the BtP Homburg, thence to be withdrawn by a suitably impartial and glamorous assistant (all being well!). The CDs will be sent to the lucky winners shortly after that.
