Band Of The Week - Procol Harum

Another busy week is gone, time really flies now is my time for my selection of Band Of The Week for this weekend. This week I going to introduce you all Procol Harum.

About Procol Harum

Procol Harum are an English psychedelic rock band formed in 1960's. They also built a heavy foundation for what would become a progressive rock band.

Procol Harum

In early 1967, Brooker began working as a singer/songwriter and formed Procol Harum in April 1967 together with Keith Reid, Hammond organist Matthew Fisher, guitarist Ray Royer and bassist David Knights. Session drummer Bill Eyden, producer Denny Cordell, and sound engineer Keith Grant.

The group recorded "A Whiter Shade of Pale". The song was officially released on May 12, 1967. With the sudden success of "A Whiter Shade of Pale", their label Deram Records became known as a premier progressive rock label.


They are best known for their hit single "A Whiter Shade of Pale", though they have had a devoted cult following throughout their career.
