What was new at 'Beyond the Pale'

May 2008

Don't forget to book for the Procol Harum Project, playing next on 13 June


 May 24:

'Brooker, previously entirely taken up with R&B, began to explore classical composition. His involvement in that style of music grew until it had insinuated itself into the very special blend that has come to characterise Procol Harum ...'

Added a splendid article about Procol Harum, written in a Pop Annual from 1977 (thanks, Charlie)


Pleasingly the BtP online store is sending out orders one-a-day for One More Time at the moment: presumably someone on the web somewhere has reviewed or recommended it.
However: if there are hardcore Procol fans who haven't got this live CD, or need a spare, be aware that there are now well under 20 copies left in stock, and no prospect of more.
So don't miss it, if you want to hear the best of 1990s Procol Harum live (with Brooker, Bronze, Brzezicki, Fisher, and Whitehorn): order here
at 11 USD.
