... are very hard to describe, and when I try to put down in words what the Procol Harum Birthday Party meant to me, I get overwhelmed with emotions and special thoughts, instead of crystal-clear thinking!
One thing is certain: The Redhill Anniversary was one of the highlights in my life! (and I've been fortunate enough to experience quite a lot so far ... ) I've also been to countless Birthday Parties ... but ... I don't think I'm lying if I say: this was a very special party! ;-) – it was the Party!
Not only because of the band members – who all
contributed in a glorious way to make this event purrrrrfect,
but also because of all the wonderful people from all over the
world, who were like one big happy family! What a fellowship!!!

And ... and ... In Held 'Twas in I ... performed for the first time like this; it was almost too much for this ol' woman! I can still recall the sound, the atmosphere, the lights, the voices, the faces ... and like I said, I can feeeeeeel the magic moments - just as if it was some minutes ago, and not one year!
I am humbly grateful for having had the opportunity of meeting
Ye All under such special circumstances; I feel blessed ...
and my only wish right now is that we'll meet again!

Thank you, all members of Procol Harum, for still being what you are! Thank You, all special friends from US, UK, Australia, Norway, Scotland, Germany etc etc.
I'll remember You All ... until I'll eventually turn A Whiter Shade of Pale!
