Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the British band's 1968 sophomore album including 11 bonus tracks. With the success of Shine On Brightly, musical comparisons were being drawn between Procol Harum and The Band. Both groups relied on the same line-up of organ, piano, guitar, bass and drums. And with the release of their own Music From Big Pink in the summer of 1968, The Band were finally being recognized as more than just Bob Dylan's backing group. Some perceptive critics noted the influence of Procol Harum on Big Pink; while Shine On Brightly - a far more assured and confident sounding album than their debut - confirmed how much further Procol themselves had developed. 21 tracks. Salvo.

CD Reviews

Yes, the speed is wrong

"Salvo terribly messed up the speed of the first two full album releases by Procol Harum.

I hope they eventually offer a recall program and get the albums corrected.

In the meantime, I can't in good faith recommend the first two Salvo remasters. Look to the Westside releases instead."
Quite Disappointing

"Salvo has done an excellent job packaging this CD. It includes great photos and notes. Sonically, the remastering is amazing. Salvo has put much work in attempt to deliver a quality product that a historic album like "Shine on Brightly" deserves. With their attention to detail and all the hard work they put into this CD, how did Salvo not notice they got the speed of the album terribly wrong? This remaster is running way too fast. Didn't they bother to listen to it when they were finished? Gary Brooker's voice just doesn't sound right at this speed and it makes this remaster unlistenable for me. I would like to know if Salvo has any plans to remedy this."

"The one star review is, unfortunately, absolutely correct!!! I thought I was going crazy or that my ears were shot. After researching it, I learned in fact that the speed was, in fact, too fast. So much for listening to or proofing their own product. One of my favorite Procol albums. I subsequently bought a Japanese import of it."
