Christmas Quizzes 2015

Question of the Day : 30 December


Sixth piece of the Puzzle  (think straight ... don't jump to conclusions ...)

Which Procol song (heard on the 1971/2 live orchestral album from Edmonton) apparently has an unstable title?

Which of these three 'focus-group' responses is nearest to the truth? Make a note of the red number so you can find the answer again easily at the end.

 
061
Edmonton
's original album sleeve has Look to Your Soul but the 2015 double-vinyl reissue calls that song I Know if I'd Been Wiser
 
062
It's a trick question. In Held 'Twas in I is not, strictly speaking, a song at all, but a quasi-Wagnerian suite, or cycle, of thematically related yet harmonically (and indeed melodically) distinctive pastiches
 
063
Fairly obviously Whaling Story: the earlier issue on Home is printed as Whaling Story Volume 2

 

Resources: search 'Beyond the Pale' by clicking here and (without deleting  'site:procolharum.com') typing 'Whaling Stories volume two' and/or 'Home tracklisting' and/or 'targeted vessels' and/or '2015 vinyl'
