Recorded during the notoriously grim winter of 1973/4 and custom built for a band on the road, Procol Harum’s eighth album is a powerhouse set, rightly regarded as one of their very best. Gary Brooker and Keith Reid wrote an extremely varied selection of new songs; the music fiery, uplifting and mysterious, the lyrics questing, sinister and tongue-in-cheek. Includes the rare B-side Drunk Again and a previously unheard version the album’s second single, As Strong As Samson.
