    プロコル・ハルムの名曲にしてデビュー曲である"A Whiter Shade of Pale"は1967年4月に録音、5月12日にリリースされています。その後、6月にこのアルバムのマテリアルがマルチ・トラックで録音され、9月にUKでモノラルのみでリリースされ、USではモノラルとリミックスされたステレオでリリースされました。オリジナルのマルチ・トラック・テープは行方不明だそうです。

    UK/US盤の曲順・曲目は異なり、なぜかUK盤には"A Whiter Shade of Pale"が収録されていません。

    "A Whiter Shade of Pale"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb3iPP-tHdA

    We skipped the light fandango
    turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
    I was feeling kinda seasick
    but the crowd called out for more
    The room was humming harder
    as the ceiling flew away
    When we called out for another drink
    the waiter brought a tray
    And so it was that later
    as the miller told his tale
    that her face, at first just ghostly,
    turned a whiter shade of pale
    She said, 'There is no reason
    and the truth is plain to see.'
    But I wandered through my playing cards
    and would not let her be
    one of sixteen vestal virgins
    who were leaving for the coast
    and although my eyes were open
    they might have just as well've been closed
    She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,'
    though in truth we were at sea
    so I took her by the looking glass
    and forced her to agree
    saying, 'You must be the mermaid
    who took Neptune for a ride.'
    But she smiled at me so sadly
    that my anger straightway died
    If music be the food of love
    then laughter is its queen
    and likewise if behind is in front
    then dirt in truth is clean
    My mouth by then like cardboard
    seemed to slip straight through my head
    So we crash-dived straightway quickly
    and attacked the ocean bed

    基本「プロモ」「サイン入り」「テスト・プレス」だけでミュージアムを作ってるのですが、例外で載せます。

    Procol Harum のデビュー作は、何故かUS盤は安く(プロモでも10000円弱)、なのにUKのオリジナルのリーガル・ゾノフォーン盤は通常盤でも10000以上、プロモだと20000超えです。UK盤は「青い影」が入っていないのに!理不尽だ!というのは、やはり僕がおかしいのでしょうか?

    まあ、確かにUK盤の方が音はいいです。

    Quite Rightly So

    For you (whose eyes were opened wide
    Whilst mine refused to see)
    I'm sore in need of saving grace
    Be kind and humour me
    I'm lost amidst a sea of wheat
    Where people speak but seldom meet
    And grief and laughter, strange but true
    Although they die, they seldom cry

    An ode by any other name, yeah
    I know might read more sweet
    Perhaps the sun will never shine
    Upon my field of wheat
    But still in closing, let me say
    For those too sick, yeah, too sick to see
    Though not it shows, yes, someone knows
    I wish that one was me

    Yeah!

    1968年のセカンド・アルバム。新たに契約したA&Mからリリースされました。UKのオリジナル・カヴァーよりもこちらの方がずっと美しいと思います(ただ、何故かスレが多い、状態の良くないコピーが多いですね)。内容はファーストよりも遙かによいです。

    "Shine On Brightly"

    My Prussian-blue electric clock's
    alarm bell rings, it will not stop
    and I can see no end in sight
    and search in vain by candlelight
    for some long road that goes nowhere
    for some signpost that is not there
    And even my befuddled brain
    is shining brightly, quite insane
    The chandelier is in full swing
    as gifts for me the three kings bring
    of myrrh and frankincense, I'm told,
    and fat old Buddhas carved in gold
    And though it seems they smile with glee
    I know in truth they envy me
    and watch as my befuddled brain
    shines on brightly quite insane
    Above all else confusion reigns
    And though I ask no-one explains
    My eunuch friend has been and gone
    He said that I must soldier on
    And though the Ferris wheel spins round
    my tongue it seems has run aground
    and croaks as my befuddled brain
    shines on brightly, quite insane

    "A Salty Dog"

    'All hands on deck, we've run afloat!' I heard the captain cry
    'Explore the ship, replace the cook: let no one leave alive!'
    Across the straits, around the Horn: how far can sailors fly?
    A twisted path, our tortured course, and no one left alive
    We sailed for parts unknown to man, where ships come home to die
    No lofty peak, nor fortress bold, could match our captain's eye
    Upon the seventh seasick day we made our port of call
    A sand so white, and sea so blue, no mortal place at all
    We fired the gun, and burnt the mast, and rowed from ship to shore
    The captain cried, we sailors wept: our tears were tears of joy
    Now many moons and many Junes have passed since we made land
    A salty dog, this seaman's log: your witness my own hand

    "A Salty Dog" is the third studio album by English progressive rock band Procol Harum, released in 1969 by record labels Regal Zonophone and A&M."A Salty Dog" has an ostensibly nautical theme, as indicated by its cover (a pastiche of the famous Player's Navy Cut cigarette pack). Interspersed with straight rock, blues and pop items, "A Salty Dog" showed a slight change of direction from its predecessors, being thematically less obscure. The title track itself was the first Procol track to use an orchestra, as would be referred to in the live album performance released some three years later.The album was the first record produced by Matthew Fisher, who quit the band soon after its release. This was also the last Procol Harum album to feature bass guitarist Dave Knights.

    "The Milk Of Human Kindness"

    When you knew that I had given all the kindness that I had
    did you think that it might be time to stop?
    When you knew that I was through
    that I'd done all I could do
    did you really have to milk the final drop?
    Not content with my mistake
    you behaved just like a snake
    and you left me for a wasp without a sting
    Tell all my friends back home
    that I did it on my own
    and that to their well-worn cares they should cling
    When you knew that I had given all the kindness that I had
    did you feel you had to break that lonely vow?
    When you knew that I was through
    that I'd done all I could do
    did you really have to sow that final plough?
    Not content with my mistake, you behaved just like a snake
    and you left me for a wasp without a sting
    Tell all the folks back home that he did it on his own
    and that to their well-worn cares they should cling

    Home is Procol Harum's fourth album, released in 1970. With the departure of organist Matthew Fisher and bassist David Knights and the addition of the remaining musicians' (Gary Brooker, B.J. Wilson and Robin Trower) former bandmate bassist/organist Chris Copping from The Paramounts, Procol Harum was, for all intents and purposes, The Paramounts again in all but name. The purpose of bringing in Copping was to return some of the R&B sound to the band that they had with their previous incarnation.

    The initial sessions were performed in London at Trident Studios under the supervision of former organist Matthew Fisher who had also produced the band's previous album. Unhappy with the sound and performances, the band scrapped the Trident sessions and began again with producer Chris Thomas and engineer Jeff Jarratt at Abbey Road Studios. Once the album was completed it was decided that the cover would be a parody of the British board game Snakes and Ladders featuring members of the band.

    When the album was released in June 1970 it charted at No. 34 in the United States and No. 49 in the United Kingdom, making the Danish Top 10 peaking at #6. The album was preceded by the single "Whiskey Train" written by guitarist Robin Trower with lyricist Keith Reid.

    プロコル・ハルムが1970年に発表した4作目のスタジオ・アルバム。批評家受けせず、セールスも平凡だったようですが、他のアルバムと同じように好きな人には良いアルバムですね。

    プロコル・ハルムが1973年に発表した6作目のスタジオ・アルバム。あまり高く評価されていませんが、個人的には最もお気に入りで、良く聴いた作品です。シミが目立つ、コンディションの悪めのジャケが多いです。。。

    Gary Brooker – vocals, piano
    Mick Grabham – guitar
    Chris Copping – organ
    Alan Cartwright – bass guitar
    B.J. Wilson – drums
    Keith Reid – lyrics

    Grand Hotel is the sixth studio album by Procol Harum. Released in 1973, it signalled a change of direction for the band. Guitarist Dave Ball who had joined the band for their live album the previous year left shortly after the photo shoot for the proposed album's cover to be replaced by Mick Grabham. Grabham's head was superimposed on the front and back cover of the album on Ball's body. Although the band had gone through significant personnel changes in previous years, the band would enter its most stable phase with this line up.The album reached No. 21 on the Billboard album charts. It peaked at #4 in Denmark, where the group was always well received.

    "Nothing But The Truth"

    It seems as clear as yesterday
    We saw it in a dream
    but dream became insanity
    an awful gaping scream
    So sad to see such emptiness
    So sad to see such tears
    And heaped up leaves of bitterness
    turned mouldy down the years
    Nothing but the truth.
    Common words in use
    Hard to find excuse
    Harder than the truth
    Like Icarus we flew too high
    We flew too near the sun
    They caught us in that awful glare
    Our hapless throats were strung
    But just before the final stroke
    They took us victims of the rope
    And cast us far beyond the deep
    To lie in never ending sleep
    It seems as clear as yesterday
    They cast us in the deep
    We lie in darkest night for good
    Never ending sleep
    A never ending bitter gloom
    Whose darkness seldom clears
    A God forsaken emptiness
    Which fills our hearts with tears

    "Pandora's Box"

    While horsemen ride across the green
    and Snow White still remains unseen.
    Pegasus, the winged horse,
    relays his messages by Morse.
    And like some pirate sailor
    We crossed the Spanish Main
    And brought our magic carpet
    to a marble staircased plain.
    While Handel plays his melody
    Doctors cause uncertainty
    And though I know the lifeguard's brave
    There is no one for him to save.
    And like some pirate sailor
    We crossed the Spanish Main
    And brought our magic carpet
    to a marble staircased plain.
    Cock Robin views his frozen feet
    and wraps them in a winding sheet
    and calls out for his favourite drink
    the Persian that's as warm as mink.
    And like some pirate sailor
    We crossed the Spanish Main
    And brought our magic carpet
    to a marble staircased plain.
