All being well, the Salvo Procol Harum re-issue series will be completed next week with the publication of Exotic Birds and Fruit, Procol's Ninth, and Something Magic (the latter including two live-in-the-studio Procol classics that have never been released: This Old Dog and You'd Better Wait.

The Procol Harum Box Set (3 CDs + DVD) is now shipping from the BtP Store: order here



We're getting overseas enquiries like
Is the BtP Store price REALLY $28.00 USD and not $63.00 like Amazon USA?
to which the answer is 'yes' ...
... and questions like
'How much extra for postage/handling?'
to which the answer is
'Like any online shop The BtP Store calculates all that for you, depending where
in the world you live, and gives you a price including postage and packing'
