Rockpalast 1976 (1)
Larry Pennisi writes: Procol Harum on Rockpalast 1976, an excellently
filmed show in brilliant color, sadly suffering from muted sound. The selection
of tracks is quite varied. As a technical aside, Chris Copping is playing one of
the smaller M series Hammond organs in it as well as his ARP Soloist synth. His
solo on As Strong As Samson is a delight. BJ is in top form during the
entire programme. Mick, using his Strat, sounds a bit thinner than usual but his
solos are quite good.. Gary was in top form as well, dressed in black velvet.
Aside from the rather TV production-like sound values, the band is in good form.
That's about it ... "in a nutshell."
