The Palers' Project : Hidden Treasures

Featured on Internet Radio, 18 October 2004


John Rose in Chicago hosts a fine weekly internet radio show The Hidden Treasures of Rock on Mondays from 124 PM (Central Time) on http://uicradio.ws/: on 18 October he featured the two double-albums of music from The Palers' Project, playing nine of the eighty tracks in their entirety: thanks, John! It was fantastic to hear so much Procol Harum music interspersed between songs from Bob Dylan's first album (recorded at a cost of $400), Tusk from Fleetwood Mac, Pinups from David Bowie, Genesis's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and many choice items from Mountain and Leslie West, The Shins, Richard Thompson, et al.

Click the links below to hear again the Paler introductions from John's broadcast: the last mp3 is particularly poignant.

The first album from The Palers' Project is Lost in the Looking Glass (2002) consisting of 40 Procol Harum / Matthew Fisher tracks, chiefly recorded in studios. 'Compulsive listening,' said Gary Brooker, while Keith Reid opined that 'every home should have one'.

The second  Palers' Project 2CD album From Shadow to Shadow was released in May 2004. Like its predecessor it contains 40 Procol Harum / Matthew Fisher / Gary Brooker / Robin Trower / Paramounts tracks, chiefly recorded in studios.
