Procol Harum - when Psych morphed into Art Rock, morphed into Prog-Rock.

A word from Prog-Rock pioneers Procol Harum tonight and a session they did for the Top Gear Program at the BBC, hosted by John Peel and recorded on August 19, 1968.

Here's the rundown:

1. Wishing Well
2. Skip Softly (My Moonbeam)
3. Long Gone Geek

Because precious little survived from this period of time at the BBC, some of these recordings are a bit damaged and have abrupt beginnings or endings. Can't be helped. But this one sounds pretty good considering how some others fared under similar circumstances.

At least it's preserved.

Can you help us out?
