A Salty Dog (from the album A Salty Dog). Very underrated band who produced some great songs that were not a whiter shade of pale. In Held Twas In I is a classic 20min prog song, but check out Whaling Stories or Homburg as beautofully observed songs. Intelligent, understated progressive rock, often with a blues leaning.
Procol Harum is a band that is (these days anyway) rather obscure, but has had a definite influence on rock music, in general, and progressive rock, in particular. Best Of" albums seldom are that, and whether or not this one is certainly falls under the area of debate. However, the album is a good introduction to the many sides of this complex and intriguing band. For those who only know of the group's two hits, "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Conquistador," the disc provides both of them

This album is a very good compilation album of songs the band recorded between 1967 to 1972. It has some hits ("A Whiter Shade of Pale", "Homburg", the live version of "Conquistador" from 1972) and "the best" songs of albums released between those years. The "A Whiter shade of Pale" single has the original Procol Harum line-up of Gary Brooker, Matthew Fisher, Dave Knights, the almost inaudible guitarist Ray Royer, with the exception of original drummer Bobby Harrison who was replaced by session drummer Bill Eyden. What can be said about the very release that introduced the world of Procol Harum to me? Not much other than the fact that it is an incredibly well rounded compilation, with a bunch of hits from every line-up and some B-side semi-rarities. The obvious classics are all here, such as "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", "A Salty Dog" and Conquistador".
