Procol Harum - Singles As & Bs

The stately music of Procol Harum, first heard on their huge 1967 hit "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", enjoyed an erratic vogue for some 10 years before the arrival of punk saw the group fold. Reforming in 1991, they made a final album and released four singles from it, none of them becoming hits.

This well-annotated and colourfully designed three-CD set collects all of the band's singles, some in variant forms, painting a kaleidoscopic picture of one of Britain's best second division groups.
