Guilty Pleasures Week continues (although I don't consider tonight's track a guilty pleasure by any stretch of the imagination) with Procol Harum and their 4th single, issued in 1969, Long Gone Geek.

Procol Harum are one of those bands with a long and rich legacy that have pretty much maintained a strong popularity some 40+ years since their inception. They were just enough outside the spectrum of mainstream pop music to be considered Art Rock (a precursor to Progrock), but commercial enough to garner wide appeal with an impressive batch of hit singles. So they've managed to straddle two musical worlds while maintaining their individuality and come out with a timeless quality that still has a lot of appeal to newer listeners.

Unlike most of the bands who suffered from bad timing and bad luck, Procol Harum were at exactly the right place at exactly the right time.

The rest, as they say, is history.
