DVD of the Day - "Procol Harum In Concert"

DVD of the Day
Procol Harum: "In Concert with The Danish National Orchestra & Choir" (Eagle Vision/ST2) 2009

Procol Harum are one of the all-time great British rock groups. Having hit the heights with their first release "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", a UK No.1 in 1967, they have sustained a recording and performing career that stretches over 40 years. This DVD was filmed over two spectacular concerts held in the grounds of Ledreborg Castle in Denmark in August 2006. The band performs 15 tracks accompanied throughout by the Danish National Concert Orchestra and Choir and these epic songs really benefit from the full symphonic arrangements they receive. Also included are six previously unreleased live tracks ("Bringing Home The Bacon," "Toujours L'Amour," "Grand Hotel," "The Devil Came From Kansas," "The Idol" and "Butterfly Boys")from a 1974 Danish TV special as a bonus feature. 125 minutes.
Color, Dolby, DTS Surround Sound, DVD, Live, NTSC
