This was the tour when Gary sat centre stage,
with the other musicians in a semicircle behind him. This side-stage shot
shows Gary's favourite stage monitors, and a clear view of the midi-module on his Rhodes piano.
Geoff's rig may be clearly seen. With binoculars one could read the names of some of his presets ... 'Procol 1', etc
The light in this picture appears to have
changed the colour of Gary's shirt completely while leaving everything else
untouched. Note Matthew Fisher's vocal microphone: though when BtP heard the band on this tour, Matthew didn't sing.
Gary in full voice. On this occasion Procol
Harum was the headline act,
with Steppenwolf and the Jefferson Airplane.
Matthew Fisher, Geoff Whitehorn, Gary Brooker, Matt Pegg, and
Graham Broad on the drums.
Geoff appears to have a Les Paul in some of these pictures, and a Strat in others
By the time that piano reached the UK, white tape had been used
to transform 'Rhodes' into 'Rhodesia' ...
make what you will of that! Matt Pegg isn't clearly seen, but his floral shirt is a reminder of the pre-suit days.
This shot from the other side of the stage shows Geoff's
guitar, and Matthew's Roland synth propped on the B3 lid.
Thanks to Gary Rosen for these very interesting shots of an unusual stage formation for an unusual line-up of Procol Harum.
