"I first bought this CD specifically for my favourite song Whiter Shade Of Pale.However,as I no sooner discovered,this band had much more to offer.This group is terrific!I just can't get over their sound.There's something uniquely special about their music.So original!Whiter Shade Of Pale has been redone by many other musicians over the years.Annie Lennox is probably the most recent artist to do a version of it.I've even heard it sung in Italian.However,none of the band's other material seems nearly as recognized.What a shame!The hammond organ is beautifully played in Shine On Brightly.The sound effects in A Salty Dog gives you the feeling of actually being out on the seashore.It seems to me that Procol Harum didn't get the recognition it deserved."

"This CD sounds as if it is a reproduction of a reproduction. The tones and voices are very weak."
