Procol Harum man to do solo album
Disc and Music Echo, 21 October 1967
Procol Harum organist, Matthew Fisher, is to "go solo" for the first time in his career when he cuts a special instrumental LP next month.
The album is the decision of the group and record producer, Denny Cordell.
'Fisher is a genius - and this LP will just be another extension of Procol Harum as a group. Of course, there is no question of him leaving the group at all,' Cordell told Disc on Monday.
Some of tracks will be composed by Matthew and Procol will make guest appearances on various tracks.
'Other famous names will contribute musically towards the LP - they will remain anonymous, but no doubt everyone will recognise who they are,' added Cordell.
Procol's follow-up single to Homburg has now been completed and will be released late December. Their LP Procol Harum will be out next month.
