2009 digitally remastered and expended deluxe edition of the British band's 1967 debut album including 11 bonus tracks. Procol Harum's eponymous long-playing debut is here augmented by the inclusion of the timeless 'A Whiter Shade of Pale', the follow-up smash 'Homburg' and a variety of rare and previously unreleased cuts selected by Gary Brooker. If any song can be said to encapsulate an era - to immediately conjure up the sights, sounds and smells of a particular time - then 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' is surely that song. For a whole generation 'AWSOP' remains the emblematic anthem of that Summer of Love. And even now, 40 years on, the song remains a haunting tale of mystery and imagination. 21 tracks. Salvo.

"While very while done, the improvement over the 30th Anniversary Anthology is not major. Perhaps I was spoiled by first listening to the Salvo editions of Home and Grand Hotel. Those two Salvo releases are truly astounding. The articulation of the bass and Brooker's voice (although you still can't make out all of the lyrics...."upon Olympus") is outstanding. If the 30th is not available, do get this one and all of the Salvo releases."
