“Some say they shall and some say they shan’t”

Procol Harum – “A Salty Dog” and “Boredom” from A Salty Dog (1969)

This band was so much more than “A Whiter Shade of Pale.” ASD is a terrific set of songs characterized by rich instrumentation (not just organs) and varied styles. It’s a real joy to listen to. I’m perplexed as to why it hasn’t seen a re-release here in the States. In fact, the Harum’s whole catalog is shamefully difficult to find.

Just try
