Album No More Fear of Flying. No More) Fear of Flying Lyrics. Gary Brooker, Keith Reid). There was no more fear of flying Once the final word were spoke There was no more tears of crying It had all become a joke Though they took a vow of silence Still the rumours quickly spread There was no more point in trying For the great affair was dead. There was no more fear of flying There was no more fears and pain There was no more need for spying They had everything to gain. There was no more fear of flying There was no more tortured brow They had dropped the safety curtain They had.

After 10 albums with Procol Harum, lead singer, composer, and keyboard player Gary Brooker launched his solo career with this album. Of course, there were Brooker's familiar characteristics - the steady piano work, the butterscotch soul voice. But he switched lyric partners for this set (except for the title track), trading longtime Procol wordsmith Keith Reid for Pete Sinfield, who had performed the same function for Procol contemporaries King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
It's a pity the album wasn't more successful as Brooker had planned to tour to promote it if it sold well (although one could argue that touring would have made it more successful and his tour would have done well because of his Procol Harum roots) which provides for a more consistent listening experience. In 1979, two years after Procol Harum disbanded (until their reunion in 1991), anist Gary Brooker released his first solo album, "No More Fear Of Flying. In short, if you love Procol Harum, then you'll love Gary solo, too. "No More Fear Of Flying" is an excellent album of top-notch, Harum-flavored piano pop/rock, spearheaded by Brooker's powerful voice and masterful playing on the keys
