This special compilation presents songs from all of Procol Harum s twelve albums, spanning 1967 to the present day, and contains all their hit singles. Procol Harum s groundbreaking work has been documented in a number of anthologies (most successfully by Salvo s 2CD set Secrets Of The Hive and the 4-disc compendium All This and More...) , but the present album is the first to incorporate contemporary live recordings, not available on CD elsewhere, alongside key recordings from their diverse career. These live tracks perfectly demonstrate both Procol s power in concert and the longevity of the material. Perhaps the greatest distinction of this great band whether fronting a choir and orchestra in a stately concert hall, headlining some multilingual festival, or packing out a sweaty club is the way the words and music of Gary Brooker, Keith Reid and co. retain their power to move and enthral. Such unique material, not written at fashion s dictates, can never age. Procol have always brought melody, wit, and a rocking drive to their unique vision of the Blues: the earthy and the unearthly are fused in these unforgettable tracks.
