What was new at 'Beyond the Pale'

April 2005


 

Walpurgis Night:

Added the setlist from last night's Procol show (headlining after Uriah Heep and Manfred Mann's Earthband) ... note the additional track, entirely appropriate for the particular evening! (thanks, Melanie)

Remind yourself of BtP's erstwhile Walpurgis Night revels

Apparently there is a problem with the Beanstalk forum: this is not under BtP's control, but we are investigating.
No need for any more messages alerting us to the malfunction, thanks!


April 29: Tonight Procol Harum play Bern, Switzerland

Added the solution for our recent Friday prize competition ... all we need now is the street-addresses of the lucky winners, and they'll be sent their free CD of one of Procol Harum's recent re-issues on Friday Music (thanks, Joe)

Added a page about the film Hitting the Fan, which has music by Gary Brooker (thanks, Antˇnio)

More information about this movie would be welcome.

The prizes for last Friday's competition all went in the mail today, incidentally.

The UK's Uncut magazine has a cover-CD this month including The Devil Came from Kansas as a track supposedly influenced by the music of The Band. In view of recent Vatican events, enjoy a topical re-exploration of all the lateral links from this Kansas Devil page (thank you, Martin)
