Procol Harum on the UK's The Geordie Scene (1)


From a TV show called The Geordie Scene (setlist here)
PH is absolutely engulfed by teenyboppers gyrating to As Strong As Samson and Conquistador.  Alan Cartwright is again using a pick, Mick is bearded again, and Chris Copping is on Hammond M-100. The sound is good, though not as full and rich as some other TV recordings. The vocal sounds a bit distant in the mix and some holes appear in the overall sonic fabric as often happened with TV recordings of that epoch.

The Professor is once again weaving delicate baroque ornamentation into the interstices of the songs.
