Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the classic album Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra by Procol Harum. Recorded on 18th November 1971 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Canada, the album captured a truly magical performance by Gary Brooker (vocals, piano), B. J. Wilson (drums), Chris Copping (organ and harpsichord), Alan Cartwright (bass) and Dave Ball (guitar), the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Da Camera Singers. Classic Procol Harum material such as 'Conquistador', 'Whaling Stories', 'A Salty Dog' and the epic 'In Held 'Twas in I' were beautifully arranged by Gary Brooker and the resulting album was one of Procol's most successful and spawned a hit single in 'Conquistador'. It remains one of the finest collaborations between a rock band, orchestra and choir. This expanded edition of Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra has been newly remastered and includes five bonus tracks (two previously unreleased), drawn from the B-side of a single and the rehearsal sessions for the concert. The release also includes an illustrated booklet featuring material from Gary Brooker's personal archive and an essay by Procol Harum authority Roland Clare.
