... about Brooker's Flatulence and the Two Wilsons
The BillBoard Music Guide CD-Rom  distributed by SoftKey in the UK contains wild and disturbing variations on the liner credits to the Procol albums. It breaks down like this:
On all albums Keith Reid is credited as contributor.
For the original Deram 18008 : the notes are as normal but in addition we find: Matthew Fisher: guitar, keyboards. The reissue disc on Intercords 1972 is credited as only Gary Brooker: Harmonica, Keyboards, Vocal. This is his normal 'base' definition throughout these notes and I will thus define it as 'normal' for what follows.
As 'normal' but Brooker is also listed as: contributor; Matthew Fisher; guitar, keyboards. PLUS M Fisher: contributore.
Gary Brooker: Guitar, harmonic, piano, 'cello, keyboards, recorder, vocal, wind, bells; Matthew Fisher: organ, guitar, piano, rhythm guitar, keyboards, marimba, recorder, vocal.
