Description

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including bonus seven inch vinyl single. Digitally remastered edition of the classic album Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra by Procol Harum. Recorded on 18th November 1971 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Canada, the album captured a truly magical performance by Gary Brooker (vocals, piano), B. J. Wilson (drums), Chris Copping (organ and harpsichord), Alan Cartwright (bass) and Dave Ball (guitar), the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Da Camera Singers. Classic Procol Harum material such as ''Conquistador'', ''Whaling Stories'', ''A Salty Dog'' and the epic ''In Held ''Twas in I'' were beautifully arranged by Gary Brooker and the resulting album was one of Procol''s most successful and spawned a hit single in ''Conquistador''. It remains one of the finest collaborations between a rock band, orchestra and choir. This pressing has been newly remastered and cut at Abbey Road Studios and includes a bonus single which is a facsimile of a rare 1972 French picture sleeve release with edits of ''Conquistador'' and ''A Salty Dog''.

While many bands joined hands & instruments with an orchestra in the late 1960s/early 1970s, the result wasn''t always a rousing success, despite the best & most ambitious of intentions. No such problem for this glorious album by Procol Harum, though! The band''s songs were well-suited to orchestral treatment that sounded natural & organic, a real fusion of rock & classical that''s seamless on every song on this disc. It''s never ponderous or overblown; everything flows as it should, sustaining & justifying the added thunder of the orchestra; and the songs are made richer for it. A milestone in such experiments, one that''s fresh & exciting to this day. Most highly recommended!

This release was one of 3 albums that I bought as a kid when I got my first "decent" stereo, and I''ve loved it for years. Now comes this new remastered version, with 3 additional songs not included on the original. What a fantastic job they have done of remastering this awesome concert! The recording now seems louder(without being abrasive, distorted, or annoying) and it seems to have more headroom. It was a thrilling concert before, but now it sends shivers up my spine. And to think that the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra was playing this show for the first time, sight-reading the material, and that the DaCamera Singers were delayed in getting to the venue by a late flight, and were performing the songs virtually un-rehearsed. Amazing!!!! They all sound as if they''d worked on it for weeks together. The 3 additional songs, at least a couple of which were recorded during a second round of taping at the same show, are all well worth having too! Add to this, the fact that this release sounds even better than the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab cd version I bought years ago. Don''t waste a second thinking about whether or not to buy it...just do it and thank me later.

This still holds up as probably the finest synthesis of progressive rock and orchestra. "Days of Future Past" as a studio document has its "sound'' and its "moments". "Atom Heart Mother" has the brass dynamics and pseudo-spooky choral yelps. But this one really works. I think that is because Procol''s selection of pieces and Gary Brooker''s orchestrations of same mesh the band and relatively smallish Edmonton Orchestra quite well. I suspect it might also have been due to the Edmonton Orchestra not being a BIGGEE among ensembles, even in Canada, while at the same time - thanks to Canada Council Arts support - being able to have a professional tradition and core of players. It would not have worked with a too full of itself "Great" classical band.

I remember purchasing this title on an LP in the 70''s, and, because I listened to it so often, I also purchased it on eight track for listening in my car. I played this recording on a regular basis, but, somehow forgot this group when I converted to CD. I am amazed that I had completely forgotten Procol Harum until hearing ''Conquistador'' a few weeks ago on my laptop. When the song ended, I went to Amazon to see what recordings were available, found this, and, placed my order. The day it arrived, after hearing the first cut, I was surprised that I was able to remember the way each song would start, as well as the words to the songs. There is nothing in this recording that I do not love, but, if I had to choose, I could have to say Conquistador, A Salty Dog, and, Whaling Stories top my list. If I close my eyes, I feel like I am in the audience. If you love classical/rock combos, this recording is a must. People who enjoy songs about the sea might find this enjoyable. I only wish I had not thrown away so many great albums when I converted to CD, I had an awesome collection.

On the 18th of November 1971, Procol Harum recorded this concert with a 52 piece symphony orchestra and 24 singers in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This is the evidence of this grand event.

Already well established as a rock band of serious music that leaned way into the classicial/artsy rock that was gaining in popularity as the 1970''s unfolded infront of us. Procol Harum, could produce hits such as: "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" and please record buyers with such epic pieces as: "A Salty Dog" & "In Held ''Twas In I."

Lead guitarist Robin Trower had left the band after the sessions for their excellent LP: "Broken Barricades" to explore a more blues/rock orientated direction away from the classicial format of Procol Harum. The group quickly replaced Robin with guitarist, David Ball and headed out to tour the world once more. This concert from Edmonton would be the high-point of the tour.

From: "Conquistador" through to the grand finale of: "In Held ''Twas In I", this show is a perfect marriage of rock and classical music forms. This orchestra and the large chorus is not here to linger in the background. "Glimpses Of Nirvana" will show you that an orchestra can hold the power of a heavy metal band {while you watch your windows rattling!}

Groups such as Deep Purple and The Nice, had already played concerts with orchestras, but the results were mixed as the rock band seemed to opposed to The orchestra in a fight for dominance. This time out Gary Brooker and his band, got it all perfect. The performance featured here is as much orchestra as it is rock band, it all bleeds together and breaths life as one BEAST. This is the record, for which all others that want to attempt this should listen to first. If the music doesn''t fit as perfectly as Procol''s does to orchestration...Don''t do it, this one already did it better!

Again, this is not rock music, it is something else all together. The mission of this group was to produce something ''Bigger'' than pop/rock music, something for the ages. Right here on this disc they have done so.
FIVE STARS !!!

Ok, I gave it three stars and everyone else raves about this album. I simply don''t understand all the love. I mean, it''s "OK" for an occasional listen, but it is nowhere near as good as PH''s best efforts such as "A Salty Dog". The orchestra doesn''t add much as far as I can hear. I prefer the original band versions of these songs by a mile. This, to me, is uninteresting and given the choice, would not buy this again.

From the liner note stories the nervous tension was palpable during the preparations and performace for this concert. Procol simply had no idea if it was going to work. They had two very new members in the band and combining Symphony Orchestra and Rock band live is very challenging techically and musically. I love Procol Harum and this to me is the high water mark of their career. This sound on this remaster is fantastic! The balances of the orchestra and band are perfect. Very strident orchestra when it needs to be, never drowned out by the band and vice versa. They were underapreciated in their time because in America during ''68/''69 when they were first coming up the music was a bit sedate and didn''t fit in with the hard rock boggie misuc of the times. By ''71/''72 prog was in swing and they were finaly getting recognized as the first pioneers of that music. The orchestra here gives them the power and grace the writing needed. This is the place to start in their catalog. It''s serious music but if your mood is right for it there''s simply nothing else like it in the history of Rock.

I am very impressed with Esoteric''s remastering and expanding of Procol Harum''s canon, and this edition of the wonderful ''Live In Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra'' is another superb addition to the catalogue. I have a pretty decent sound system and this remastered and expanded edition CD sounds fantastic. It has crystal clear audio which still retains the ''warmth'' which can sometimes seem to get lost in remastering. The additional rehearsal tracks are a nice bonus to the original album and of equally high quality. The ''Grand Finale'' section of ''In Held Twas I'' made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end, it is just stunning! Highly recommended.

I( have this album on vinyl, and had hoped to convert it to MP3 so I could listen to it on my daily commute to work. However the original quality was not so good. The usual scratches, hisses and the odd jump here and there. I was not even aware that this album was still available, but the CD is far better quality, and the added bonus of additional tracks was not anticipated. I''m sure that any Procul Harum fan already has this album in their collection. Sure it is now nearly 48 years old, but there are some classics on here. Really love A Salty Dog and All This And More.. I''m so glad I purchased this and would certainly recommend.

One may initially wonder how an album UK charting at 48 and devoid of Procol Harum''s unique masterpiece '' Whiter Shade of Pale'' can be so majestic and memorable. Just listen once to know exactly why. For me this is Procol Harum at their unsurpassed best. The collaboration between rock group, symphony orchestra and choir can never have been finer. Live albums frequently lack something, suffering the absence of studio sophistication. Here''s a perfect exception. All the undoubted risks taken in this one-off live performance endear an exceptional magic and musicality. The consistent accolades of the musical press at the time confirm my seeming bias, with phrases like ''a highly talented album'', ''the music...some of the finest I''ve heard'', and so they went on. Procol Harum Live was one of the first vinyl albums in my collection and has profoundly influenced my musical taste thereafter. Deciding to re-acquaint myself with this 40th anniversary CD version is one of the best decisions I''ve made. The clarity, presence and sheer musicality from all those decades ago have just added further splendour over time with digital remastering. The bonus tracks and excellent booklet add a further dimension to the package. Whether a Procol Harum fan or not, I commend you to savour this memorable evening in rock history. One thing''s for sure, you''ll not be disappointed. Any shade of pale will be turned vividly white!

Anyone who owned & loved this superb live performance by Procol Harum on vinyl will be blown away by the wonderful soundstage that this exemplary reissue provides. My cherished LP was filed away unplayed for years - How could I ignore this record for so long? Just as bands including the Beatles, the Stones & the Yardbirds led me to discover the gritty truth of blues & R''n''B, Procol''s fantastic integration of rock band and orchestra taught me to appreciate the power & splendour of classical music - well,occasionally! The Edmonton concert has always been one of the finest live albums I''ve ever heard. Since buying this album & "Broken Barricades" as 40th Anniversary edition CDs, I''ve happily rediscovered the many delights of my Procol collection - a great band. Afficianados won''t need reminding of the drama of "Conquistador" or the emotional power of "A Salty Dog", whilst the epic "In Held ''Twas In I" allows the seamless combination of rock band, chorus and symphony orchestra to create some magical moments. The bonus tracks include songs played at rehearsal, and there''s a superb 20-page booklet to add value to the package. Don''t just gaze wistfully at your vinyl copy of this classic record - buy the reissue, it''s timeless stuff.

I bought this on vinyl in 1972 and later got rid of it. As it is part of the excellent 2009 re-issue programme of their albums I decided to buy it again. These re-issues all contain high sound quality, informative booklets and come in impressive digi-packaging. The album is worth buying for Conquistador alone although all their songs work well with orchestra. The bonus tracks include Luskus delph which should have been included on the original release. The problem I had was that like many great bands of the time there was a tendency to slip into pomposity with long tracks featuring spoken narration which distracted rather than enhanced the music. The guilty track here being In held twas in I. Having said that, I appear to enjoy these tracks more now than I did 40 years ago. If you are new to Procol Harum you really should start with their earlier albums, in particular A salty dog. However if you already own those albums this is a worthy addition to your collection. The fact that I have bought it again suggests the music has a magnetic attraction that stays with you long after you have filed it away.
