Procol Harum's gig-list for 1974

Provided by PH's tour manager, Barry Sinclair 


Does this 80-odd-date schedule jog your memory of any gigs you were at? If so please mail us: we welcome all reminiscences, set-lists, scanned photos and ticket-stubs! The dates for the last part of the year, after Barry took a road-sabbatical, were kindly supplied by Procol historian Frans Steensma, and added to Barry's schedule, with occasional other notes, in this sort of type. Claes Valentin Jensen sends yet further additions, in this sort of type.

'This gig was at SUNY New Paltz about 50 miles north of New York City. I was the bass player in The Womblers, and we opened up for PH in the Elting Gymnasium on the campus. It was a great gig, despite the lack of a sound check for us, and we considered it to be an honor to be on the same stage as Brooker & company,' writes Albee.
