These dozen songs follow Procol Harum's activities on the hit parade over the course of the band's first six albums. "A Whiter Shade of Pale" announced the band's 1967 arrival in no uncertain terms. The combination of classical overtones and an R&B underbelly created enduring moments of electric tension, romantic breadth, and mysterious power. Some of the group's later hits, such as "Simple Sister" and "Whiskey Train," were more straight-ahead blues-rock numbers, but were still infused with a consistent vision, largely due to Gary Brooker's soulful singing and Keith Reid's poetic lyrics. This hit-filled set is highly recommended, as are the band's second and third releases, SHINE ON BRIGHTLY and A SALTY DOG.
