If the opener, with strings arranged by Brooker doesn't get you, the tender "Too Much Between Us" by Trower will and if that doesn't, maybe the heavy metal-isn "The Devil Came From Kansas" will, or maybe the caribbean tinged "Boredom" will sink your dinghy. For those who loved this record in it surely stood the test of time. It still has the atmospheric goods and the ability to send your mind packing for 40 minutes or so, helped by really fine sonics thanks Ken! So Album) do these three versions compare?
All are excellent though the new Mo-Fi reissue offers the greatest dynamics, the best bass extension and Album) most vivid harmonics—particularly on the strings, which admittedly are only on two tracks. You could argue that the originals have more "atmospherics" but I'd argue back that that was the product of distance and haze not on the tape. It's held up well. Was this one a safety copy with the original having burned in the Universal fire?
Mo-Fi doesn't say, but lets the record do the talking. And you can be sure the vinyl pressed at RTI is the quietest of all.
If you love this record I think you will be very happy you bought Mobile Fidelity's reissue. Your happiness will begin on the opening track when Brooker begins singing and the strings enter.
You've never heard Brooker sound so tonally "Brookerish", nor have the string harmonies ever sounded so lush and "right". A great job by the Mobile Fidelity team! Submitted by DaveB on Sat, Does modern convenience gear make it Juicy John Pink - Procol Harum - Robins Last Stand (CD easy to fail? Dave, I think it's a digital vs. Album) collecting records for almost 55 years. I like to believe I have great "taste". This record is a top 25 of all time for me.
A must listen, if you have not heard it. The title tune is still hair-raising and I've always gotten a kick out of singing the opening verse of AWSOP to Fisher's verses in Pilgrim's Progress - same changes, and more vintage Fisher Hammond playing. Check out the instrumental ending of PP where each time through, they add a different percussive instrument and finally a bell that cuts through beautifully, a testament to how well the tape has held up and the care MoFi went through on this.
I'm impressed by the depth and realistic reproduction of Brooker's vocals and Trower's guitar inventions. Matthew Fisher's organ and Drummer extraordinaire BJ Wilson are more prominent in the mix than previous editions. I once read an article from long ago comparing Procol Harum to The Band. No doubt, listening to this seminal album with quiet backgrounds and warmly detailed analog reproduction makes that analogy work like never before. It's like listening to this fine work of art for the very first time, Juicy John Pink - Procol Harum - Robins Last Stand (CD, rediscovering it's nuances and brilliance.
Love this record! I should buy the Mo Fi just to encourage them. I do also have the dare I say it? Mo-Fi silver label CD, too. It sounds good! Glad to hear you mention the age of the master tape, Michael. You may have addressed this elsewhere, but I am curious. Has there been a more analytical study of what might get lost with age? Clearly age creates problems like delamination, but what about loss of extended highs, etc? Not to mention "baking" a tape - fairly desperate insurance against losing a tape altogether.
After a long period of neglect, the Procol Harum catalogue has been re-issued by several labels in the last 10 years. These were mostly CD's. The first serious attempt was from Westside Records in These contained many extra tracks, and were made from the best analog stereo tapes available.
No vinyl for this set of re-issues. There was a less than stellar attempt made by another label, Salvo. In fact, the Shine On Brightly disc, though made from first generation master tapes, was mistakenly transferred at a noticeably higher speed, owing to the fact that the original tapes were mastered on a machine that turned out to be running a bit slow.
This was noticed and corrected during the original vinyl cutting, worldwide. Salvo didn't realize this had been done. They also took liberties with the EQ, and Album) much noise reduction.
The latest batch of re-issues, from Esoteric Recordings has been well-received elsewhere, and these are available on vinyl, also cut from the original stereo masters the 1st album was only mixed in mono, so it is rightly mono. Thank you, Michael! I have this on my "to buy" list.
I bought the last one, literally. That said, does anyone know and care to comment about Venus Records, Japan? Amazing album. I hope record company is well respected, unlike Jazz Workshop I inquired before. Thank you All! Great album, one of the best of that era. He was a member for the next two albums, 's Home and 71's Broken Barricades. They are still producing great music Please check it out!
Most of all a suberb music! The Japanese CD of Novum has an extra cut waiting for a copy to arrive. It might be better than Novum. Several copies are currently available on eBay where I bought mine. Musically from the late sixties untilProcol Harum was split between Robin Trower's guitar driven blues rock style and Gary Brooker's and Matthew Fisher's structured classical rock sound. The group often combined the two into a dynamic fusion, but by mid the isparities in style became too great; the end of an era was marked for Procol Harum, with the release of their fifth album Broken Barricades, and subsequent departure of Robin Trower to form his own power trio band.
All of which helps understand why this particular bootleg is often known as 'Robin's Last Stand'. The show was broadcast on FM stereo. Memorial Drive Still There'll be more Nothing that I didn't know Simple Sister Luskus Delph Shine On Brightly Whaling Stories Broken Barricades
Sticking the raw blues of Juicy John Pink right before the layered, classically-based tune Hesperus wrecks the flow. It was still a solid album, just a bit choppy. On Home the band turned a few corners. Knights and Fisher departed (the latter after a failed attempt to continue on as producer). Chris Copping replaced them both on bass and keyboards. I feel this new CD has improved over the last in many ways but there are miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep, to quote Robert Frost. Enjoy!! Here are a few juicy tidbits about this CD to listen for: my favorites are 'Broken Promises', "Don't Reply", "Learn to Love Again" and "Don't Let It Slow You Down".
