Procol Harum - anticipating Prog Rock by a few years

A great sounding concert from 1971. Recorded at The Record Plant* and broadcast over WPLJ-FM in New York on April 12, 1971. Procol Harum during their Broken Barricades period.

A memorable concert during a particularly great period of the band and if you aren't familiar with them, or only know them from Whiter Shade of Pale, now's a great chance to hear what the fuss was all about.


*note: Thanks to an eagle-eye reader, it was pointed out to me that the actual recording venue was A&R Studios in New York. I screwed up, thinking of something else. Thanks for setting it straight!
