Assuming that the other person reading the forum also enjoys Procol Harum, a quick post to say that the BBC is broadcasting a Procol Harum concert tomorrow evening, Friday. It's on Radio 2 and I'm guessing the Listen Live feature of the iPlayer plug-in on LMS will play the broadcast. Though I had some CDs of their music, I never had the CD they made with (I think) Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, but I think I've heard what I consider to be one of their best tracks, A Salty Dog, from it.

This concert is with a large BBC orchestra and the recording is, apparently, of the UK performance of a tour that has been given elsewhere in the past few months.

The programme page is here:

and the broadcast is at 20: 00 GMT (2000z).

Should be good.

I am not sure it is a good idea to discuss terrorist organisations on this forum.

Is this a recent concert or from the 70s?
A Salty Dog was on the second album called - A Salty Dog. The Edmonton Orchestra was a Live version s few years later.

Edit. it was the third album.

.

It was earlier this week, Monday, in London. (Tickets were extremely expensive, and to go to British Isles, and then to London, was a voyage too far. Thought long about it, though.)

So many different band members over the years. Other than Gary Brooker, any other of the early/original members?

Follow the BBC link in OP and do "Show more" and the lineup is revealed. Brooker is the only original but the other musicians are all good.

Caught this on Friday. Rather good. Typically high production values being BBC. It's available on iPlayer for another 4 weeks.

I have downloaded and split the tracks in 320kbps MP3s (albeit the original audio was 128kbps aac). If anyone else is planning to do similar then .....
