Procol Harum - Secrets of the Hive - The Best Of (2007)

About 4 years ago, Procol Harum made their comeback with the highly acclaimed 'The Well's on Fire'. Now, 40 (yes, forty) years after the release of their first album PH decided to release a 2 CD compilation album…

Procol Harum? you say, never heard of them… Well, chances are you actually have. The band - which is considered one of the earliest progressive/symphonic rock bands in history - made their fortune with classic rock hits like 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale', 'Homburg' and 'A Salty Dog'.
I for one love their sound… Imagine melancolly piano chords, majestic Hammond organs and soulful vocals and you've got Procol Harum.
And before you say, "Well, what's so great about just another compilation album?", just consider this: 'Secrets of the Hive' is the first (of quite a bit) PH compilation albums that really portrays the band at its best, from 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' to the closing track of their latest track 'The Signature'…
This compilation proves that classic rock doesn't have to sound outdated… PH's music is timeless.
