Procol Harum, up to No 7 this week, could have an American No 1 on their hands by the time they arrive in New York next Friday (27). The group's second single, Homburg, has sold over 250,000 copies in the US since its release there two weeks ago.
Before the group left for a Zurich TV date on Monday, accompanied by their founder / manager Keith Reid, they were told by co-manager Tony Secunda from Los Angeles that the three-week US tour is close to a sell-out and that Ed Sullivan has now offered them two dates on his networked TV show during their stay.
